(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Last summer I was lucky enough to be included as an interviewee in the new soap opera themed documentary appropriately titled “Soap Life,” which follows the life, and possible death, of daytime soap operas. I can’t believe I forgot all about it and didn’t realize it until this morning!
Several past and present actors, producers, journalists and writers were interviewed for the documentary including Lisa LoCicero, Rick Hearst, Kristen Renton, Jill Larson, Bradford Anderson, Carolyn Hennesy, Mimi Torchin, Shenell Edmonds, Ronnie Marmo, Cady McClain, Derk Cheetwood, Jordi Vilasuso, Max Tapper, Lexi Ainsworth, Crystal Hunt, Bobbie Eakes, Gary Tomlin, Sean Ringgold, Francesca James, Julia Barr, Eileen Fulton, and many more.
The crew behind the documentary recently surpassed their goal of raising $12,000 in funding for the project, but if you’d like to help out you are more than welcome to do so.
“Soap Life” is a new documentary about the changes taking place in the world of daytime drama. As more and more classic soap operas are cancelled or forced to move to exclusively new media distribution, the landscape of American television is going through unprecedented changes. We’ve spoken with executives, fans and a number of current and former daytime stars to get their perspective on what it all means and what lies ahead.
We are trying to raise the last amount of funds needed to finish our documentary. We still have a few weeks left to film in NYC and then post production where we need to edit, color correct, and clean up the audio.
We hope to finish the film within the next few months and the money we raise will help this become a reality.
Our gifts include a pre-order of the DVD, a collectible poster, an invite to the film’s premier, a special thanks in the credits, and the chance to make an appearance in the documentary.

After 10 years, Los Angeles’ critically acclaimed 68 Cent Crew Theatre Company is going bicoastal and coming to New York City! With over 60 productions and festivals to date in Los Angeles, including the ONLY production of the ”13 by Shanley” Festival, Artistic Director Ronnie Marmo (GENERAL HOSPITAL, WEST OF BROOKLYN) feels it is time to return to his New York City roots and officially open a chapter of the 68 Cent Crew on the East Coast.
We produce published works, as well as original work written by Company members and writers around the world. We are looking for dedicated, open minded and talented individuals interested not only in acting but in writing, producing, directing, stage managing and set design. The 68 Cent Crew nurtures artists in all aspects of theatre. We believe that being a member of 68 is more than just being a member of a theatre company; we take pride in the fact that we provide a safe community where creativity and talent flourish. Members are surrounded by a family of individuals who are devoted, passionate and ready to work.
The 68 Cent Crew Theatre Company is a dues paying company. Dues are $75.00 per month. Membership includes our Monday night Gym. In Gym, we workshop scenes, improv, cold read, write, develop and direct material brought in by members. We exercise to keep our skills sharp for much less than the cost of a class. Company members get first right to audition for company shows. Once you are accepted into the 68 Cent Crew Theatre Company, you are a member of both Los Angeles and New York. This gives you exclusive access to use your creative passion on both coasts whether it be in a production or attend Monday night gym! All Theatre 68 members will now be bi-coastal.
