Are cutie patoodie duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, formerly of All My Children on a roll or what?   The husband and wife creative partners have sold another show to ABC via their Mijolo Productions company!  And this one is called … Poor Pam!

Exclusively revealed today via Deadline.com , “Ripa and Consuelos have teamed with writing duo Andrew Leeds and David Lampson, creators of last season’s pilot Brenda Forever, for a half-hour comedy project with a female protagonist, Poor Pam.  

The shows centers on Poor Pam, that friend everyone feels bad for.  Single, unemployed, almost broke, living in the shadow of her famous sister — everyone has it better than Pam. But that doesn’t get her down. Poor Pam always looks on the bright side of life, and she’s always ready to go another round, no matter how many times she gets dropped on her ass.

Leeds and Lampson will write the script and executive produce with Ripa and Consuelos. The project was developed internally at Ripa and Consuelos’ Milojo Prods with Albert Bianchini, who oversees the company’s projects. This marks Milojo’s second sale to ABC in the past month. The company, also as previously reported, has a multi-cam comedy  written by former General Hospital: Nightshift head writer Sri Rao.”

So, who should play the title role in Poor Pam? What do you think about hot television executive producers, Ripa an Consuelos?

What is wrong with ABC? She stinks on that dreadful talk show and was even more horrible (if that’s possible) on Hope & Faith. She even said she has no talent of any kind. And her idiot husband, what can you say here that won’t be deleted? IMO they were never cute, nauseating is more like it. There are so many more talented people to choose from, like everyone else. More money for the chronically over paid and terminally un-talented. What does she get for that talk show? $40 mil? Does she need the money to do ads for Electrolux… Read more »

Yes..Hayley was pivotal on AMC…that said…I liked her on Regis & Kelly…I can’t stand Kelly & Michael or whatever it’s called…I did like her sitcom Faith & Hope or Hope & Faith..whatever it was…I think she’s just a likable enough person who’s made it during the time period she wanted to make it..that was the plan…and she wanted to get away from being in front of the camera at some point…which I thought was coming about now…so …I think Mark Consuelos is very smart when it comes to business…and the two of the together were funny when hosting Regis &… Read more »

WHAT is with all the Kelly Ripa hating posts on here?????? She was one of the most popular and beloved heroines on AMC for 12 years. She has since gone on to great things and has always honoured her soap background. I hope all her new ventures succeed. I just can’t believe how needlessly mean spirited people can be!

wow I have to agree with Johnny. I don’t get all the Kelly hate. she was a very beloved heroine as Johnny mentioned, there was always a Poor Hayley moment back in the 90’s and she was paired up in some great pairing back then too. In any case as for not well known characters? SHe was Adam Chandler’s daughter for goodness sakes! It has been fun watching her and Mark transition from Soaps into other things. that’s not always easy and I commend them for their continued success. can’t wait to see what they will accomplish in the future

agree. I just don’t like the Kelly & Michael show. But Hayley was pivotal on AMC…and I think she and Mark Consuelos are an example of a celeb marriage that seems to be working…and I think he’s very smart…he’s got a great business mind…she said she wanted to get away from being in front of the camera when her children hit their teens and they’re there except for the youngest…so………who knows…

What’s with all the Kelly HATE?

I have quit watching her show because I don’t like her with Strahan, but I don’t understand why everyone hates her so much.

I won’t be watching these comedies because I don’t like any comedies anymore…EXCEPT Modern Family. To me, the rest of them are too stupid to waste my time with.

But I say, “Congratulations” to Kelly & Mark for their apparent success with their production company.

They should cast a real life sister of a famous actress who can act.

Sorry to say this but ever since Regis & Kelly stopped being Regis & Kelly and the show became Kelly & Michael her sweet demeanor ended and out popped this “My Show, My Way.” Always playing with her hair and whats this coming out every day dancing. LOL Give it a rest, you can’t dance!

Hi Deb. The fact is…it is her show. She was second banana for over a decade to a man who had long ceased to be relevant or entertaining anymore. I think she earned it. She is funny, self deprecating, enthusiastic, and charming. I just don’t get the hate. Lol.

She was better paired with Regis…I liked the way they worked together. I think she and Mark were very funny when they hosted together. But she and Michael—not so much. I don’t think it’s right to say Regis stopped being relevant or entertaining…he and Kelly together were great fun and it just worked. What is there to be relevant about in a morning show..with light host chat and entertaining guests…I mean what is relevant about that? It’s light entertainment. Not meant to be Meet the Press.

YOU AND ME BOTH, KATE!!! YOU AND ME BOTH!!!! I will NEVER forgive ABC or Disney…and btw I followed Jacob Young to B&B and now Thorsten Kaye is taking on a major role on B&B…so…that’s great…but I am SO sorry he is not returning to AMC via TOLN. I DO hope it returns..I thought the first season was wonderful…loved it…I thought it worked really well!

Kelly and Mark must be doing something right. They are on the air, unlike AMC and OLTL. So get over it ladies. You all wish you had 10% of the talent these 2 have.

All My Children and ‘The Bay’ Star Eric Nelsen in the Cast of ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1883’

On Thursday, the full cast was announced for the highly-anticipated Yellowstone prequel that will bow on Paramount+ beginning on December 19th.

The Taylor Sheridan drama tells the tale of the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.

According to Deadline, in the cast is none other than The Bay’s Daytime Emmy-winner, Eric Nelsen (Daniel Garrett), who was also part of the cast of Prospect Park’s reboot of All My Children as AJ Chandler.

In 1883, look for Nelsen to take on the role of Ennis, a young, handsome cowboy who agrees to help escort a group of inexperienced men, women and children north to find a home.

The series also stars: Billy Bob Thornton, Faith Hill, Gratiela Brancusi, Sam Elliott, Stephanie Nur, and Tim McGraw to name but a few.

So, will you be checking out Eric in 1883? Comment below.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
