It wasn’t that long ago when the soap opera genre was considered to be dying, but it has since seen a major turnaround — to the point where NBC (home of sudser “Days of our Lives”) and USA are developing new soaps!

The Hollywood Reporter has published an article in which it’s revealed that NBCUniversal is developing an English-language version of “El Senor de los Cielos” (The Lord of the Skies), and USA is developing an English-language version of “Mujer de Acero” (Woman of Steel) — telenovelas belonging to their sister network, Telemundo.

Life has given “Days of our Lives’” star Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans) a tough break — literally. Over the weekend, the Wisconsin native revealed over Facebook that she broke her wrist!

“Grrrr. Took an annoying turn in my dance class and broke my wrist in two places. Possible surgery this week,” she wrote. “Look for Marlena to have a broken wing in a few months! The good news??? I have wonderful people to dress me, style my hair and apply my make up!!! Broke it yesterday, spent the day in the ER and was at the theatre last night!!”

The injury has left the actress wearing a sling, meaning the “DAYS” writers will have to write her painful break into the show. So what will happen to poor Marlena? Guess we’ll have to wait and find out!



Congratulations are in order for “Days of our Lives” star Bryan Dattilo (Lucas  Horton): He and his wife, Elizabeth, are expecting a child!

According to Soap Opera Digest, the couple will welcome their first child together this summer. This is the second baby for Dattilo, who is already a father to son Gabe, 14. “I miss my son as a baby so much,” the actor told SOD. “I love him as a young man now, but when he was a baby, it was insane.”

“I’m more prepared in the sense that I know what’s coming: the hard work, responsibility and lack of sleep,” he continues. “It’s a long road. But I’m very content and happy.”

They concluded their message stating, “With dear love for each other and our family, as parents first and foremost, we kindly ask our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time.” The couple married in June 2006.

As we previously reported, former “All My Children” star Robert Scott Wilson (ex-Pete Cortlandt) is headed to “Days of our Lives,” where he’ll be taking over Justin Gaston’s role as Ben. Hot on the heels of the news, the actor himself took to Instagram to comment on his new journey — as well as his final episode of “The Price Is Right” (where he debuted as the show’s first male model) and the anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Rumors had been swirling all weekend and now Soap Opera Digest is reporting that former “All My Children” actor, and “The Price is Right” male model, Robert Scott Wilson (ex-Pete Cortlandt) has joined the cast of NBC’s “Days of our Lives” as a recast Ben Rogers. He replaces daytime newcomer Justin Gaston, who in real-life is married to “The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman).

Per the publication, Wilson had already been on set filming in January as the series celebrated its two year renewal by NBC. As a result, Wilson’s first airdate isn’t expected until at least next month due to the soaps four to five months ahead filming schedule – Gaston began filming on the series in mid-October and didn’t air until late February.

Corday Productions, which produces “DAYS,” has not confirmed any casting changes per its policy.

Moss, who departed CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” in September 2012 after portraying the widely popular role of Ridge Forrester for more than 25 years, joins “The Bay” as former Bay City District Attorney, John Blackwell. Evans (Adrienne Johnson Kiriakis, “DAYS”) will portray Katherine Blackwell, John’s wife. While at first it would appear that John and Katherine are in town to reconnect with their son, Damian Blackwell (Erik Fellows), the power couple are in actuality seeking vengeance against the Garrett family, who they share a hidden past.
