Since debuting in January 2011, “Shameless” has become one of Showtime’s most underrated hits. Now entering its fourth season, the series picks up a few weeks from where season three left off: The Gallaghers braving another brutal Chicago winter and waiting on the medical fate of their flawed, permanently pickled patriarch, Frank (William H. Macy). With Fiona (Emmy Rossum) in a stable job and relationship, and Lip (Jeremy Allen White) enrolled in college, can the Gallaghers finally realize the middle class American dream?
As we’ve previously reported, “Days of our Lives” Shawn Christian (Daniel Jonas) and Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) teamed up with Jack Briggs and Nate Hartley to create “Addicts Anonymous,” a single-camera mockumentary, and the comedy series is now available for viewing via the web!
Originally planned for primetime television, the series — which stars Molly Burnett (ex-Melanie Jonas, “DAYS”), Lori Loughlin (“Summerland,” “Full House”), Matt Walsh (“Veep,” “Ted”), Jerry Lambert (“Shameless,” “Family Guy”), Christian, Smith and more — is now being offering via the show’s official website. Episode one (“Admitting”) and episode two (“Support Buddy”) are available now. Subsequent episodes will be released as follows:
“We’ve all written the scripts together, which is really fantastic,” says Christian, who also serves as the executive producer for the series. “We all filmed it together, and it’s so funny. It really is just fantastic.”
Deep down in the basement of NBC’s The Burbank Studios in Los Angeles, beneath the busy and hectic world of “Days of our Lives’” Salem, lies a cozy dressing room that offers a warm and comfortable respite from cameras, producers, directors, publicists, wardrobe and all of the other distractions of a daytime television set. The lighting is low, candles flicker, and there’s a plush, body-hugging beanbag that just begs any visitor to sit back, sink in and possibly take one of the best naps of all time. We at Soap Opera Network could have fallen into the beckoning trap, but the dressing room’s owner, Shawn Christian (Daniel Jonas), was way too excited to discuss his current storyline and his new television project, “Addicts Anonymous,” to allow any snoozing to happen. And as soon as the passionate actor launched into conversation, there was no desire for napping on our part, either! Read on for the exciting details Christian shared. But be warned: You’ll be on the edge of your seats (or, if you’re lucky, your beanbags).
The anticipation leading up to the announcement of the 65th Primetime Emmy awards has been building for weeks, and “Breaking Bad’s” Aaron Paul and “How I Met Your Mother’s” three-time Emmy winner Neil Patrick Harris (who’s also hosting the ceremony this year) finally made the official list public this morning.
Watch the video below, or read on for the full list from Soap Opera Network detailing who’s in the running for the coveted golden statues!
“Days of our Lives” stars Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) and Shawn Christian (Daniel Jonas) have a lot to celebrate. In addition to surpassing their Kickstarter page donation goal for their new web comedy project, “Addicts Anonymous,” a new star has joined the cast: “Full House” alum, Lori Loughlin!
Loughlin, who’s also known for her roles on “The Edge of Night,” “Summerland,” and the new “90210,” will play Smith’s character’s mother (opposite Christian, who will portray Smith’s character’s dad) if the project is made.
Check out the “Addicts Anonymous” Kickstarter page for more information and to find out how you can help create the potential web series, which also stars comedy veterans Matt Walsh (“Veep,” “Ted,” “The Hangover,” “Old School”) and Jerry Lambert (“Shameless,” Family Guy,” “Bad Teacher”), and former “DAYS” beauty Molly Burnett (ex-Melanie Kiriakis).
Soap fans can’t help but think of Anne Heche as “Another World’s” Vicky Hudson, but the busy actress has carved a successful path in primetime and is about to shine in NBC’s “Save Me,” a new comedy that will have the Primetime Emmy nominee talking to God!
NBC’s popular comedy, “The Office,” just aired its final episode, but fans of the single-camera mockumentary may have something similar to look forward to: “Days of our Lives” stars Shawn Christian (Daniel Jonas) and Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) have teamed up with Jack Briggs and Nate Hartley to create “Addicts Anonymous,” a possible web-bound comedy that brings the Peacock Network’s Dunder Mifflin-based show to mind — with a slight “The Breakfast Club” twist!
The show, which will also star comedy veterans Matt Walsh (“Veep,” “Ted,” “The Hangover,” “Old School”) and Jerry Lambert (“Shameless,” Family Guy,” “Bad Teacher”), along with former “DAYS” beauty, Molly Burnett (ex-Melanie Kiriakis), is about a group of college students — all battling different addictions — working through their problems in one room.
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — According to ABC Soaps in Depth, “General Hospital” has cast actor and model Christian Monzon in the recurring role of Eddie Cabrera – the onscreen husband of Delores Padilla (portrayed by Rebeka Montoya). While the character had been discussed on numerous occasions for several months, it wasn’t clear if he would ever be seen. A first airdate is set for the week of April 16.
Before joining “GH,” Monzon appeared in episodes of several television series including “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “CSI: Miami” and “CSI: NY,” “The Closer,” HBO’s” Entourage” and most recently Showtime’s “Shameless.” In 2010, he appeared in the series finale of “Dollhouse.” He can also be seen in episodes of the 2008 online series ”Hot Hot Los Angeles,” which can currently be viewed for free on Hulu.com. The actor is also known for his appearances in Dolce & Gabbana ad campaigns.
As part of Wyndotte Street, a production company that provides original online music and comedy, Monzon has starred in several shorts that he either wrote or helped produce such as “Naked Man,” a comedy series where he portrays a naked superhero (no worries, they blur out everything below the waste), and “Wyndotte Presents: (I’m At Work),” a sketch comedy following life within the walls of an office building.
