Michael Caruso, best known as the creator and executive producer of the Daytime Emmy Award nominated, "DeVanity," is back with a new series that will star former "Days of our Lives" actress Martha Madison (ex-Belle Black). The series, titled "Winterthorne," follows the story of Miranda Winterthorne (Madison), a young women looking to take control of the family empire by using her best assets: Power, seduction, vulnerability, love, and ruthlessness. The series will be directed by Daytime Emmy Award winner Sonia Blangiardo ("As The World Turns," "One Life to Live") and is set to begin production in early 2015.
There were a lot of ghosts and ghouls running around last week for Halloween, but they weren’t the only blasts from the pasts as of late. Several classic television shows have been given second lives, including “Veronica Mars,” “Family Guy,” “The Comeback” and "Twin Peaks" (the latter of which you can read more about here), making it all the rage in Hollywood at the moment. But which resurrected shows have proven to be the best back-from-the-dead successes? You can decide!
Hallmark Channel’s first-ever original scripted primetime series has proven that it’s got what it takes to survive the brutal competition of the entertainment world: The network has officially decided to renew the show for a third season!
POP’s “Queens of Drama” is rolling out the red carpet and delivering exactly what the show’s title implies: In addition to the list of popular soap stars already attached to the reality show, “Dynasty” legend Joan Collins will also be a part of the new show!
As previously reported, soap stars Lindsay Hartley (“All My Children,” “Days of Our Lives,” “Passions“), Crystal Hunt (“Guiding Light,” “One Life to Live”), Vanessa Marcil (“Beverly Hills, 90210,” “General Hospital”), Chrystee Pharris (“Passions,” “General Hospital”) and Hunter Tylo (“The Bold and The Beautiful”) have signed on for POP's newest reality series, "Queens of Drama," where the ladies will work together to produce a pilot for a new serialized primetime drama series. As the poster above warns, today, October 28, marks the beginning of production for show. Donna Mills (“General Hospital,” “Knots Landing,” “Melrose Place”) will also be taking part with special appearances.
Former “Days of our Lives” siren Krista Allen (ex-Billie Reed) has had quite an impressive run since departing Salem in 1999 with roles on shows like “Mistresses,” “Baywatch,” “Hawaii Five-0” and “Melissa & Joey,” but her latest gig puts her back in the soap orbit — at least partially: She’ll be featured in an upcoming episode of ABC’s “Castle,” which stars former “One Life to Live” actor, Nathan Fillion (ex-Joey Buchanan)!
It seems as if soap opera writers are penning Crystal Hunt’s life: The actress — who’s known in the soap world as “Guiding Light’s” Lizzie Spaulding and “One Life to Live’s” Stacy Morasco — was recently slapped with three years probation and 45 days of community service work after a 2013 bar brawl in which she threw a glass at another woman. And now, that woman — revealed to be Elizabeth Nam — is suing the actress, claiming that her injuries killed her future baby!
It’s been said that the remaining four network television soaps are like all-star sports teams, consisting of the best of the best of actors in the daytime community. But the latest casting announcement for the online soap opera “Youthful Daze” shoots it right up into the Big Leagues: Trevor St. John (ex-Todd Manning/Victor Lord, “One Life to Live”), Bryan Craig (Morgan Corinthos, “General Hospital”), Chrishell Stuase (Jordan Ridgeway, “Days of our Lives;” ex-Amanda Dillon, “All My Children”) and Rick Hearst (Ric Lansing, “GH;” ex-Whip Jones, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) have joined the series, which already boasts a cast with a couple of recognizable names in the industry!
The last year for former “One Life to Live” actor Sean Ringgold (ex-Shaun Evans) has unfolded almost as if his real life is a daytime soap opera: First, the actor-turned-bodyguard was accused of sexual abuse and rape, and now he’s finally putting the ordeal to rest after a New Jersey court cleared him of the serious charges.
As Soap Opera Network previously reported, former “Guiding Light” and “One Life to Live” star Crystal Hunt (ex-Lizzie Spaulding; ex-Stacy Morasco) was facing up to four years in prison after allegedly attacking a woman in a West Hollywood bar in December of 2013, but a sentencing in court on Friday, October 17, left her with a much lesser punishment for the crime: Three years of formal probation and 45 days working for the California Department of Transportation.
