Delighted so far. I hope they continue to add more daytime soap opera stars; they are who we tune in to see, not someone from some obscure night time cable program.

Presenters are not a big deal to me. I am just happy for the person asked to present. What would be interesting is to have actors from each soap who are seated at the same table to share on camera one topic they are chatting about between presentations/commercials and have the fans watching respond to the conversation via twitter. Make it more intimate between the Daytime stars and fans…in real time. By the way, the actors pick the topic.

If some of the responses from the fans are funny, the actors and the fans can share a laugh together in real time!

I agree! You have an excellent idea on how to make the Daytime Emmy Awards show much more intimate between the Daytime stars and their fans… in real time! I have always wondered what the soap stars talked about between the presentations and the commercials. So this would be a great way for the fans watching to find out and give their responses on the selected topic!

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.
