Looks like former ATWT and GL publicist, Alan Locher has dipped further into the former P&G soaps talent pool for another livestream online reunion that is sure to please longtime fans of Bay City and the beloved Another World.

Look for the one and only Linda Dano (Ex-Felicia), her longtime friend and co-star Stephen Schnetzer (Ex-Cass) along with Amy Carlson, (Ex-Josie) who went on to a primetime TV career (Blue Bloods et al) and fan favorite Joe Barbara (Ex-Joe) to be together again for the first time, virtually.

The livestream is set to take place this Thursday, April 30th  hosted by Locher on his You Tube Channel here.  It all begins at 2 p. m. EST/11 a.m. PST.

Many daytime fans remember the drama families, friendships and romance of Another World, and were heartbroken when the series was cancelled by NBC and aired its final episode back on June 25, 1999, after 35 years on the air.

Have questions ready for this fab foursome this Thursday and join the chat.

So, excited to hear that AW stars on tap for a virtual conversation? Still miss Another World? Comment below.

She was much younger than I ever imagined! She was only 54 years old when the show went off the air!!! Maybe because she was with Mac who was much older….or because she played the matriarch for so long…or her very…um…unflattering haircuts. I miss her and all of AW!!

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.”
