Liz Lemon’s former assistant on 30 Rock, Cerie Xerox, is making a move to daytime.  Not really! But the actress who played her, Katrina Bowden is on her way to be a series regular on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful!

According to TV Line who broke the casting news, Bowden will be a woman who shares a past with Dr. Buckingham (Wayne Brady).

Look for the character named, Flo, to hit the canvas on January 14th.

Could this be a triangle on its way involving Taylor/Buckingham/Flo?

This isn’t Bowden’s first soap turn. She previously got her career started on One Life to Live in a multi-episode story arc back in 2006.

In addition to appearing in all seven seasons of 30 Rock, she has also appeared in PsychUgly Betty, New Girl and several Lifetime Movies.

So, intrigued by the addition of Bowden to B&B? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I remember when OLTL did those arcs back then. Wasn’t it Michael Malone? Whoever it was it was over-hyped and weird LOL. She looks like a Brigitte recast.

The absolute last thing B&B needs right now is another new series regular. Just a few months ago, B&B introduced Zoe, a newbie who has not exactly become an established character yet. Just last week, they introduced her father, who is brand new to the show and who we know nothing about. Now they’re bringing in a woman from his past? This is all too much, too soon. Y&R is dealing with the same issue with the Rosales family.

Characters should be well-established on their own before being inserted into a ready-made love triangle. And with everything Taylor is dealing with right now in terms of mental health, is ANOTHER love triangle really the best thing for her?

B&B has too much going on right now. Too many new characters that don’t add anything to the show, while characters like Wyatt, Sally, Rick, Maya and Justin languish on the back-burner. I’d much rather see any of these characters as opposed to Reese, Zoe or this new woman.

Also, “Flo”? They really couldn’t have picked a better name?

Usually when they introduce new characters, it means that SLs are coming to a climax, but I can’t see that happening anytime soon. There is still so much ongoing with Hope, Liam, Steffy, Brooke, Bill, etc. Too much for a half hour, and now more? It was so boring the other day, I didn’t even watch it all.

Why are they adding story to peripheral characters? Don’t really understand.

Whomever she is, I hope she takes the good Dr. back with her. I love Wayne Brady, but not in this role, and certainly not as a love interest for Taylor.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
