“Days of our Lives’” Casey Moss (JJ Deveraux) is taking a page out of “Rock of Ages” and hitting the stage on Los Angeles’ famed Sunset Strip!
As we reported last week, Retro TV will soon begin airing reruns of NBC’s classic soap opera, “The Doctors,” which has created quite a stir for soap opera fans! What are the details of the soaps’ blast from the past? And could the network bring other former soaps like “Guiding Light,” “As the World Turns,” and “Dark Shadows” to the screen? Retro TV’s Vice President of Production, Matthew Golden, spoke with TV journalist Will McKinley about these questions, so check out some excerpts below!
Soap operas often feature couples who eventually trade partners within their myriad of storylines over the years, so Tyler Christopher (Nikolas Cassadine, “General Hospital”) and Ronn Moss (ex-Ridge Forrester, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) should have no trouble with their latest challenge: They’ll be appearing on tonight’s edition of ABC’s “Celebrity Wife Swap,” where their wives will trade households, lifestyles and children for an entire week!
Congratulations are in order for former “Passions” stars Natalie Zea (Gwen Winthrop) and Travis Schuldt (Ethan Winthrop): The couple got married last week!
“The Young and the Restless” is no stranger to having sports stars visit Genoa City (Seattle Seahawk Superbowl champ Michael Robinson appeared earlier this year), but the next sports/soap opera crossover the sudser is planning has a bit of a twist: Instead of an athlete appearing on the show, it’ll be an athlete’s mother!
The marquees of Broadway theaters in New York City went dark for one minute on Friday, July 18th in memory of actress Elaine Stritch (ex-Wilma Bern, “One Life to Live”), who passed away due to natural causes at the age of 89.
“The Bold and the Beautiful” has set off for locations like Paris, Abu Dhabi, Monaco and many parts of Southern California, making it quite the globe trotting soap opera. And that has left many CBS Daytime fans wondering if its sister soap, “The Young and the Restless,” will follow suit and take some of its characters out of Genoa City and around the world. We spoke with network execs to find out!
She’s gone, but she’ll never be forgotten — a statement proven true by “The Young and the Restless” regarding Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), who passed away last year but still remains quite central to storylines playing out in Genoa City. And the soap will once again honor her memory — exactly one year after Katherine’s onscreen death — with a remembrance ceremony in Chancellor Park that includes Tricia Cast (Nina Webster) and Michael Fairman (Patrick Murphy).
