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 appliances. I doubt she even knows how to use a kitchen. What is wrong with Electrolux that they would even consider hiring her. I wouldn’t buy their products just because of their lack of good judgment. LOL

Boring! If Ripa is involved, no doubt it will be awful.

neither were pivotal characters on AMC

she, was in the right time at the right place….

its nauseating and syrupy – her lack of – real humor… as she ‘deadpans for laughs

I mean really…. Regis knew

Paddy

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 & Kelly when Regis was off…but Kelly & Michael…don’t like it…

Kelly ripa is very annoying. i never liked her at all. she has no talent. and is.a blonde has been.

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

Paddy
Paddy

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!

Johnny
Johnny

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.

Paddy
Paddy

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.

No to all things ABC! I will never forget AMC!

Paddy

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.

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.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
