It all goes down today between 1PM-4PMEST at the CBS Restaurant and Bar in Foxboro.

And in addition to your chance to audition, B&B’s Scott Clifton (Liam) and Melissa Ordway (Abby) will be on hand for a meet and greet with the fans (even if you are not there to audition!).

For those about to get a taste of the life of an actor trying to get on a daytime soap, here is what you need to know if you are auditioning:

Contestants will each receive a 2-minute audition and will be asked to act out a scene. Click here to download a copy of the Male & Female scenes.

The local casting committee will select 10 finalists from each region to be submitted to the network to select a winner.

The person who is selected will receive a SAG/AFTRA contract guaranteeing him or her compensation as a principal performer in a dramatic serial for a single episode at the prevailing scale rate.

The episode, tape date, character portrayed, amount of dialogue, and/or the broadcast of any scenes in which the person selected appears are at the sole discretion of the producers. As is the case with the editing of the show in general, the producers reserve the right not to include the participant’s appearance in the show.

Additionally, the person who is selected will receive round-trip coach class airfare for two from airport nearest winner’s home to Los Angeles, three nights lodging (double occupancy), ground transportation and a per diem. The actual dates of travel are to be determined.

I was hoping to attend this casting, however, I could not get out of my scheduled work shift.

This is probably a good idea for fledgling actors…and quite a baptism by fire given the time constraints of a soap schedule. But I hope it’s not also a trigger for a show (especially GENERAL HOSPITAL) to add more unnecessary characters. I feel that Y&R made that mistake with Stitch, Luca, probably more I can’t recall. And don’t get me started on GH’S transgressions in this area: Jordan, Andre, Valentin, Nurse Amy, Aaron, Parker, T.J., Claudette, Officer (!) Valerie, Claudette’s daughter…enough already!

I agree Soaphound. Or they could go the opposite way, such as B&B, who hire wonderful talent, and don’t take advantage of that talent. In my opinion, one example would be the terrifically talented actor who plays Maya’s dad. Ioved when Maya’s family was introduced and getting all that air time. At least it took us away from the world of Wyatt, Steffie, and Liam, if only for a little while

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

Welcome To The New Michael Fairman TV: A Note From Michael Fairman

By now, many of you have come across and seen that Michael Fairman On Air On Soaps has evolved into the new and exciting platform, Michael Fairman TV.

I hope you take the time to tour the new site, and enjoy its new look, new features, and extended coverage; which will focus on, and include, not only your beloved daytime soap operas, but primetime television drama, a slice of reality programming, as well as popular streaming and digital series.

This site has been a long time in the making, and we’ve been working very hard behind the scenes to make this transition as smooth as possible.  As with any change, we know that it will take some time for all of us, including me, to get used to it, and adjust to it.

I truly appreciate the community that we have built for the last 10 years, and I value each and every one of you.  As with any new launch, there will be small tweaks and revisions along the way that do come up.  Our goal is to make the best user experience for you, and to bring you the news, interviews, and coverage that you expect from the Michael Fairman brand.

I know many of you are already saying you miss the old Michael Fairman Soaps, but this is an upgrade, not a demolition.  That being said, Michael Fairman Soaps was no longer sustainable as is.  The site needed to grow, evolve, change, and modernize with the times. With modernization, part of that is making the site accessible, functional on mobile phones and devices, which we now are.  While some things can’t remain the same forever, we are always interested in your input.

I am very proud and excited for this new chapter.  I hope you will enjoy everything that is to come, and I appreciate all of your loyal support.  So, let’s christen this site together and celebrate turning over a new page.

With gratitude,

XO

Michael
