On Monday, the three-part episode debut of a concept for a new comedy series,Viral bowed on the shows official website.

Viral stars One Life to Live and Days of our Lives, Melissa Archer (Ex-Natalie and Serena) and her good friend and former One Life cast mate, Jessica Morris (Ex-Jen)!

The premise: What happens when one outrageous moment in your life is caught on camera, and literally becomes an overnight social media sensation without your knowledge?  That is the plight that Kat (Melissa Archer) and Jackie (Jessica Morris) find themselves in when the two young women are kicked out of a bar, and then realize they desperately need to go back in to use the bathroom.  After being refused re-entry these two drunk gals need to take matters into their own hands.  But, what they didn’t expect is that two drunk guys catch them, decide to film it, and spend all night auto-tuning the moment, and turning it into a video!  When the girls wake-up, they are in for the shock of their lives to see that their indiscretion has gone viral.

The series is executive produced by the Steel Penny Productions team of: Melissa Archer, Sonia Blangiardo, Teresa Cicala, Brandon Goins, and Jessica Morris. “Viral” is co-written by Blangiardo and Goins, with Blangiardo as director (Tainted Dreams, All My Children, As the World Turns, Days of our Lives, and General Hospital).  Teresa Cicala serves as editor, with Rod Portier as Director of Photography, and Michael Fairman as Creative Consultant.

“Steel Penny Productions is very excited about releasing its first collaborative project.  “Viral” is fresh, topical, funny, and most of all, has heart,” says series co-executive producer, co-writer, and Emmy-Award winning director Sonia Blangiardo.  “With everyone looking for their five minutes of fame nowadays, ‘Viral’ gives a comedic look inside both the possible risk and reward of actually getting what you wish for.”

The cast of the show also includes:  Brandon Goins as Teddy, Sean Carrigan (The Young and the Restless) as Dave, and Barry Brisco as Pierre, and features: Rob Scott Wilson (All My Children and Days of our Lives), Eric Nelsen (All My Children and The Bay), and David Harris.

This is so funny! I love how it shows how funny Melissa Archer is and it is so much better than her Days character. She was born to do comedy. I love the two together also. I agree with the comment about their timing together. They are funny and great together! Hope there is more to come!

Funny, contemporary story. Archer & Morris were great! Wish them great success with this project and hopefully more to come.

I echo those who are wanting an Archer/Easton pairing on their screens. One of my top favorite soap couples.

Yes this is very funny! Melissa’s lines are great. Yes an onscreen pairing of Archer and Easton would be fabulous!

I was pleasantly surprised. I admit the thought of two chicks getting caught peeing in the alley was not my idea of good entertainment. But I had to check it out and I was laughing over and over again. I watched it several times and sent it to friends. Melissa is a natural and she and Jessica have wonderful chemistry; they play off each other welll; just like they did on OLTL. And the quality of the series was so good; I was so impressed. She has a natural comedic dynamic. I saw some of that in her as Natalie but it’s nice to see her with out all the drama. I can’t wait to see more!

It wasn’t fun or funny. I find it very distasteful. I hope they come up with a different project than this. I wish Melissa Archer well in her career, but this project is not my “cup of tea”.

Not a fab if this at all.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Recalls The Terror He Caused In The Cabin!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

On Wednesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has brought Ciara (Victoria Konefal) to a very familiar place to him, the old abandoned cabin in the woods where he had: tied up Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail, where he had traumatized Abigail, and where she had given birth to Thomas, and where he murdered the midwife, Wendy (Denice Duff).  Throughout the episode, Ben flashes back to all those moments in time, and the heinous acts he perpetrated.

For this episode, DAYS re-created these key scenes in Ben and Abigail’s back-story, by having Marci Miller redo the scenes, originally played at the time by Kate Mansi.  Both Wilson and Miller were riveting to watch.

In present time, as Ben tends to Ciara’s wounds, he looks around the cabin and flashes to kidnapping Abigail.  When Ciara finally starts regaining consciousness and starts to moan, it brings back memories of Wendy aiding Abigail in the birth of her son, Thomas.  He recalls murdering Wendy and burying her.  Ben begins to relive more and more moments, and then the horrific time he wanted to set Chad and Abby on fire.  Ben continues to get more beside himself, and begins to pant recalling it all.

Later, Ben is standing in a corner, staring at the flame of the lighter that had been used to start the fire that had nearly killed Chabby. Just then, Ciara wakes up and takes a look at Ben. and she screams,”Oh my God.”

What did you think of the performance of Rob Scott Wilson? What did you think about Marci Miller redoing the scenes originally that aired that were played by Kate Mani? Comment below.
