“We’re going to bring you fresh faces, other faces, familiar faces…primetime, daytime, film stars…you’re gonna be so excited! I’m bringing you bubblicious, soapalicous, down and dirty, evil dressing room dalliances, sexy, steamy…wow, I lost myself there,” says Victoria Rowell enthusiastically and physically to viewers in a promo highlighting her Kickstarter campaign to help fund “The Rich and the Ruthless,” a primetime pilot she hopes will placate fans of “The Young and the Restless,” who for a number of years have been clamoring for her to return as Drucilla Winters. The potential series follows Rowell’s success with her books “Secrets of a Soap Opera Diva,” and “The Young and the Ruthless: Back in the Bubbles,” which was released earlier this year.
Former “All My Children” star T.C. Warner (ex-Kelsey Jefferson) has joined the cast of the NBC pilot “After Hours,” which centers on a group of Army doctors who work the night shift in the emergency room at San Antonio Medical Center. The series is described as a cross between “ER” and “Mash,” with storylines loosely based on true incidents that have occurred at a real-life hospital in San Antonio, Texas. Warner will portray Amy Budden, a nurse at the hospital.
