As KATIE Soon Flatlines, Will Katie Couric Replace Barbara Walters On THE VIEW? Walters Now Denies It!

It’s been a whirlwind morning for daytime talk show hosts, Katie Couric and Barbara Walters! First came the New York Daily News piece that related that the end of Katie Couric’s low rated talker, Katie could mean that Couric would then be moved by ABC to the spot on The View panel currently held by Barbara Walters, who is currently in her final season with the morning talk series.

The N.Y Daily News report tipster said in regards to KATIE, “They realize it will never be a success and ratings are down drastically from last season. The ABC development team has been working nonstop on new talk show pilots and are looking at high-profile names to replace her, hopefully by January.”   Another source added, “Katie may ultimately replace Barbara when she retires.”

Next, via Deadline.com, Barbara Walter denies the report that Couric will be replacing her, but the piece does allude to the fact that a denial from Walters, can often mean it is the truth! Just look at Walters track record when she denied she was retiring, and then later announced she was stepping down from The View, etc.   Walters said about Katie Couric, “She is always welcome as a guest on The View and I was recently a guest on her show, but there is no truth to the rumor that she will be taking my place on The View.”

But the bigger question is this … Katie is faltering, The Revolution faltered, the whole ABC Daytime line-up shake up that axed All My Children and One Life to Live did not work in synergy as they had hoped, and the audiences did not support this change, and the revised programming day-part.   So, what do you think of the news of Katie taking over for Barbara? Do you think that is where she will go? Do you think it’s sweet justice that ABC is seemingly, according to the NY Daily News, “working non-stop on new talk show pilots”, when they had two soaps that had an audience?  Are you so infuriated with the whole situation?  Comment away!

So we lose two soaps, Katie gets all the money anyway. 1000s of jobs dumped by ABC for Katie so they’ll put her on the last semi-tolerable thing left and wreck that….brilliant.

Its comical, ABC thought talk shows would do well, the only one that is, is The Chew, AMC and OLTL will not be back but this will ONLY ignite the flames more now, ill sit back and watch the side show. As for Katie going on the View its as bad as it get.

I disagree, I think with the success AMC and OLTL had online, this will force ABC to rethink their colossal mistake! Soaps have rebounded online and on broadcast TV. Take into account the lawsuit, fan demand, and the failure of their current line up…I bet we will see a familiar line up return!!!

Two words for you: Fat chance.

Propect Park owns the leases, whether the shows return or not ABC/Disney is NOT going to put them back on the network, the sooner the fans realize this the better off they will be.

Only AMC is still standing OLTL has been shelved due to ABC/PP lawsuit so ABC/PP is holding OLTL hostage during this Pissing contest.

Cannot stand Katie & I’d like to see her go away……far, far away. As for ABC, while I never watched AMC or OLTL, as a Days [and therefore soap fan], I’m enjoying all the problems that they’ve brought on themselves by cancelling those 2 soaps. Maybe they should just admit their mistakes and bring them both back.

I think this is what ABC deserves! I will NEVER watch anything that is put on in my soaps time slots (unless they bring back AMC and OLTL!) so they can rack their little brains from now until dooms day to come up with new talk show ideas but I for one, will NOT be watching!!!

Here here! Ditto to all of the above. There is NOTHING that can replace OLTL and AMC…except OLTL and AMC!!

The really sad thing about all this is STILL seeing responses like this YEARS after the soaps were cancelled. You know what you sound like? A jilted teenager who won’t accept the fact that your boyfriend dumped you in high school. So even though it’s years later, you’re going to hold your breath and turn blue until he comes back, except he has moved on, gotten married and had kids with someone else.

MOVE ON. GET OVER IT. It’s just a TV show.

Well said. I will not watch Katie anywhere.

You are so right they can keep putting on talk shows and I will never watch. I could care less where Katie goes. What I do care about is when AMC and OLTL will be back on line or even better yet on cable TV or both at the same time so we could watch when ever we want. JUST BRING THEM BACK. I have been watching GH and enjoying it very much, there could come a time that people will give up hoping AMC AND OLTL will come back and will PP keep taking it off line when ever they want.

I never watched that witch (couric) talk show and knew it would tank. Loved how she waltzed over to ABC and felt she could call the shots by deciding when GH’s new time slot would be to give her the best advantage and now GH is the best its ever been and she’s going down the tubes. Poetic justice, really.

They can put on 100 talk shows , try over and over again and it will never be as much $$$$$ as the Soaps that is why even though they know that it was a BIG mistake ABC will never bring them back.
There almighty 18 to 49 AGE GROUPis the bottom line and always will be. PP came through the first time we need them to keep it going. SO WHEN WILL THEY BE BACK ONLINE that is the BIG question .

Maybe ABC should consider a talk show that talks about soaps LOL.

Soaptalk

I was speaking about a talk show NOW, on the main network in the afternoon, not one that was on a cable channel own by ABC earlier in the decade and was on prior to ABC cancelling their own soaps. I just thought it would be funny if after cancelling two of their soaps the only talk show that that might be embraced by bitter fans was a talk show about soaps– I was going for irony, but thanks for the input.

THAT WOULD BE GREAT TOO and bring Michael Fairman and Linda Hirsch as regulars.

yours is the best comment by far ! BRAVO !

I was making a joke. I didn’t mean bring back Soaptalk from Soapnete. Sorry I wasn’t clear enough. Maybe it could be Soaptalk 2.0.

oh… too bad, it works well for the irony of it… cancel all the soaps to do a talk show… and it ends up being a talk show about the soaps.

with everything going on with ABC daytime, who knows…

I’d say an hour slot on ABC has opened up, and I know 2 half-hour shows that would fit that bill quite nicely – with a proven track record that ABC has yet to replace in numbers. Put AMC and OLTL back on TV. Better if the soaps could air and still keep their distance from ABC suits, something, syndication, IDK, but Bring them Back.

Bring them back in half hour format………….it will work…. or create a new soap opera with the AMC & OLTL cast limited of course. Look how good AMC did without Erica.

well they would be a lot cheaper than they used to be now that prospect park is producing them

AMC would have done better with Erika. However, it did as well as it did because it had some fan favorites return. I ,as well as many others, hope for her return at some point. Since PP owns the right to AMC and OLTL, ABC can’t bring them back easily and they don’t want to. It would certainly bring some viewers back to daytime tv.

Brianna Frons caused this. As a result, the whole ABC Daytime lineup faltered. No one wanted Katie Couric, THE REVULSION, and THE SPEW. The ABC audience wanted quality (re: AMC and OLTL), not silliness.

Maybe YOU did not want The Chew, but plenty of people did. It’s doing well in the ratings and is a fun, harmless show. Don’t you dare ruin it for those people. You are NOT so far above everyone else.

And GROW THE HELL UP already with those tired, juvenile names for the replacement talk shows. If you think you’re being clever, you’re dead wrong. It just proves what an immature baby you are.

And soap fans actually have the gall to wonder aloud why they are not taken seriously. Imagine that.

The Chew is contributing to the obesity problem in America. Lisa, you seem to be the one having a tantrum .

Boy Kate I was just thinking the same thing. Do you think she is turning blue yet? roflmao

Maybe she is off her medications?? LOL

I think it is sweet Justice for ABC. No doubt. They should have put more time into promoting their Soaps and yes they had a very loyal following. The day time audience does not want to hear talk, talk, talk all day long. HOW BORING!!!!! Give us a good Soapy drama anytime.

DITTO!!!!

Second DITTO!

I firmly believe now that the cancellations of AMC and OLTL have been totally blown out of proportion by the soap media. I’m sure ABC has zero regrets. With all the so-called talk that soap fans are boycotting the network, ABC’s ratings don’t show any direct evidence at all that a boycott is harming them in any way. And even if Katie fails, ABC is not getting that hour back from local affiliates, who will simply plug in other syndicated and local shows there. They wanted to downsize their daytime schedule. This idea that Katie’s failure will bring back AMC and OLTL to ABC is all wishful thinking. Dream on. Besides, looking at the numbers on OWN/Hulu, it’s pretty clear that this groundswell of support for the shows and genre is not there. Other than a small, loud, loony fan base that could not accept when they were over, nobody cares anymore.

Understand already that The Chew is a success for ABC. It’s at least on par with what AMC did in its final year on the network and it’s much cheaper to produce. That’s a fact, like it or not. And I do not buy that The Revolution failed last year because of any kind of silly boycott. That’s a bunch of nonsense already. It was simply a poorly produced/executed program with a concept that an audience could not relate to. In the immediate aftermath, GH was the safest available option to put there.

A lot of people do care…as for OWN its a low rated cable station…the reboots would work better on tvgc, lifetime or some other more popular cable channel and shown later in the evening like 6pm to 9pm. Not many recieve own so that is what keeps the numbers down…if these soaps were truly over PP would have never listen to us small looney fan base and brought them back!!!

Excuses, excuses. Yeah, everything is an excuse with these shows. How about that simply not enough people cared to follow these soaps in a different form to the Internet after a year and a half delay, unlike what only Prospect Park and the most rabid die hard fans thought. Sometimes the truth hurts.

As was proven, some shows are better off being left resting in peace.

that’s right…….say it loud…..jimh…

Do you work for ABC/D? The boycott by the extremely loyal soap fans is woking. The Chew is NOT doing as well as AMC did. That’s why ABC has it run right up to 2p without commercial break to get some of GH’s ratings. No one watched GAA or the Revolution either. We soap fans turn the channel as soon as GH is over so we don’t watch Katie! In case you haven’t noticed ABC ranks 3rd among the big 3 networks in primetime. ABC/D pissed off millions of viewers by showing such disrespect and now they are getting paid back. So instead of looking for another talk show to replace Katie ABC should put AMC & OLTL back on!

Is that the best comeback you can come up with? Whenever someone presents an opinion that differs from yours or something you don’t want to hear, it’s always tired crap in return like “Do you work for ABC?” etc. No, I don’t, thank you.

If this so-called soap boycott is working, prove it with concrete evidence, smarty pants. This is just a small group of sour, loud fans who think that they represent millions of people but could not be more mistaken. The overwhelming majority of mainstream people in the real world have long since accepted ABC’s decision and gone on with their lives. Imagine that. Sometimes the truth hurts.

Hi Linda, I think she does. I also think she was the individual who rejoiced at the cancellation of AMC and OLTL in 2011 and insulted many of the fans on Michael’s site. If she isn’t a soap fan, why is she here? If she doesn’t like soaps, don’t watch!

Or, maybe she is Brian Frons the “genius” responsible for the cancellations of AMC and OLTL!

Amen!

Unfortunately, the truth is it took to long to bring back the two soaps. Also another down fall was the loss of some key characters (original actor’s). And perhaps as odd as it sounds the opening theme songs and sets are drastically different then before. They are very close to being two brand new shows.

I had no problem with your opinion…but if you dont like the shows and others do, why should it bother you if a group of us ‘looneys’ u called us start a writing campaign to bring them back…it happens with prime time shows too…a success or not…there is no harm in trying…if you like talk over action im fine with it but you dont have to call people names like looney because they like something and you dont!!!

More and more people are learning the importance of eating healthy. Supermarkets are carrying more unprocessed foods. Restaurants are being forced to add vegan and vegetarian dishes. Our society is suffering from obesity and the health problems that go along with it. The Chew is like cigarette manufacturers, they contribute to making society sick. This is why I do not like The Chew. I do understand the business side in the decision to cancel the soaps. I miss not having AMC on ABC but I get it. I know that Dr. oz’s daughter does do health segments but the rest are usually frying or pouring salt and sugar on everything. It will only have a young audience which is what advertisers want. As the audience ages ,they will develop health issues that will require them to eat healthy or die.

We know ABC will never bring back the soaps.Anne Sweeney has made it clear she doesn’t like soaps.But we also know the idiots did all they could to take them down before they were cancelled.They brung the idiot Frons in who already got a soap cancelled on another network and took over the writing for AMC.Writers lefted everyday upset.don’t think we hurt them.ABC is what one article called The new NBC.Low ratings on the majority of their shows.Who’s doing the best.CBS.Why because people have went to their soaps and see whats on nighttime and staying there.I use to turn on ABC first thing in the morning.Stay on it all day.Don’t anymore.Just tune in for GH and that’s it.don’t even watch nighttime anymore.Rather watch another network and support it they care about their viewers.I think ABc is hurting.They can’t get anywhere near CBS ratings anymore.they blew it and we know it.

No she is just a Britch!

LOL Karen!

Lisa, first off, hope you are not a troll ( as described in the show “The Newsroom”}

OLTL was rushed to production and the showed quite clearly by the lack of storyline the writers wrote. It had a very bad writing team, as they had such a rich histroy to draw from and they didn’t.

I am hope that they is one shot left for OLTL V3 ! With the proper writing team, I still believe it could succeed.

Nothing wrong with being positive and hopeful, is there ?

I called this months ago when Katie was faltering, Joy and Elisabeth were leaving and Barbara announced her retirement. There should be a journalist on the panel, but not sure Katie will work. ABC will do what they want regardless of their viewers.

I could care less if Katie replaces Barbara Walters…ABC getting what it deserves for cancelling AMC and Oltl…ill continue to support GH being my favorite soap…ABC should air repeats of the soap reboots to see if they do better than Katie but i know thatll never happen…theyll never admit how stupid they are…in a way i do understand why they cancelled but hopefully theyve learn their lesson and realize there is still an audience for daytime soaps! GHs recent ratings rise is solid proof of that!!!

I prefer watching the soaps over any talking or cooking show .. I like drama and stories you can follow each day (M-F)..I watch GH also and enjoy watching it each day. ABC makes such bad decisions on daytime programming. This happens quite often. The Chew should be transferred to the food network channel. That’s were all those kind of shows belong. I have always like watching the soaps and that will never change. GH ROCKS!

One more thing I am tired of all these talk shows on daytime t.v. They choke you with them on ABC ,etc. Tired of Blah Blah Blah talk shows …I don’t watch them on daytime t.v. I am a loyal soap fan and always have been. I will continue to support GH also.. Hope OLTL comes back soon and everything gets resolved. And I don’t watch The View anymore. Lost interest quite a while ago.

Oh Micheal…. I am sorry, but I just can’t be bothered anymore… if my beloved OLTL returns… to any platform in shape or form… I will watch.. but just so tired of all the behind the scenes stuff.

Double DITTO!

It is just incredible to me how dumb ABC/Disney really is! They have killed their daytime line up. They have pissed off the fans who would have supported their nighttime lineup so they are well on their way to destroying their nighttime lineup for pissing us off. And the stupidity continues………. Oh well. Soon I’ll be down to Kelly and Michael and GH. I’m not happy with Jenny McCarthy. I only watch The View now for Whoopie’s intelligence and Sherri’s beautiful spirit. But it’s still a disaster…….. Adding Katie will turn me off no matter how much I love Whoopie and Sherri.

Amen again!

all my children and one life to live will never come back to abc. i love the chew. the ratings are good. the revolution sucked. it was not a very good show. keep all my children on the internet. one life to live will not be back. there will be an annoucement soon. that its cancelled. katie couric belongs on the today show. this will probably be her last season. her show is boring.

You actually like The Chew??? Not to many people do. I never watch it at all. Never watch cooking shows. I prefer drama and heart-warming stories. OLTL will come back. I have positive thoughts for OLTL return. Never had any interest in Katie..

I can not tolerate the View..
Its a big hen fest.. women spouting their opinions over dunbshit stuff lol
what a waste of air time..

AMEN….well said…

They seem to talk all at once.. Instead of one at a time.. I still like Whoopie!

All of the money wasted on Katie and all of the jobs lost by the soaps’ cancellation is just sad. The programming decisions were so obviously misguided. Katie tanked on CBS, so why would she be successful with her own talk show? ABC should bring OLTL back since Prospect Park is so obviously in love with AMC. The former OLTL writers and producer (who are now at GH) could oversee both GH and OLTL. These writers know OLTL and could do a much better job of writing storylines that are much truer to the characters. The first act of business would be to “burn” Shelter. Any actors who do not want to return or who need to go to acting classes could “die” in the Shelter fire.

I like your style LIsa Z…I have a feeling maybe it could happen, except the ‘burning” down Shelter..I know OLTL will be back on PP, but something tells me it will be back at ABC..SPOILER ALERT!!! I always ruin a good surprise!!

I have mixed emotions when I think about how stupid the execs at ABC/D are. On one hand, I’m still furious about the callous cancellations of AMC and OLTL and the cavalier way they have treated their daytime viewers., On the other, I’m getting a grim satisfaction from seeing how they are floundering and frantically trying to come up with programming that people will actually watch. As for Katie, I would prefer that she just go away, but if she ends up on The View, so be it. I don’t watch that show anymore, anyway.

Well stated Mary!

I don’t watch The View either.

I lost interest in The View a long time ago. Don’t care for Sherri Shepherd. She thinks she is the head honcho. When there’s an eating segment Sherri is the first one there… I knew Katie’s talk show would fail.. And this isn’t the first time this has happened.

I only watch ABC for GH!!!!

I’d LOVE to see Katie join The View. That way, I can ignore 5 of the most annoying women on the planet all at the same time.

Need to add the women on The Talk in the most annoying category.

How does The Chew do so well up against Y&R and DOOL? Ellen IS NOW on the same time at Katie in many markets………Katie will be way down by Christmas. Most people will watch Ellen just so Katie will not get their time…………Katie will never be on in my home ever……….. will watch paint dry first before I watch her……..GH is the only ABC show I watch period…………NBC, CBS, HGTV, Hallmark, METV, Netflix, Local News, Brian Williams is all I watch………….Good bye Katie……:<( argh!!!!

Bring back ONE LIFE TO LIVE & All My Children. Cancel the goo and the spew. Stop rewarding failure. Ms. Couric hasn’t done much since she left the today show.

AMC and OLTL will never be on network TV..
Soaps are a huge money output..
ABC can support 1 soap, not 3 ..
GH has a future and will remain ABC’s only soap..

Looking forward to both AMC and OL 2nd season online..

fingers crossed… your first statement will be proven false. one can hope, can’t they ?

Katie’s talk show will be cancelled very soon..Taking its place, will be OLTL, who just happens to be in hiatus, since Prospect Park and ABC are working out legal issues..Katie will still be in ABC in “The View” and OLTL will be back and Prospect Park will receive enough cash flow to produce a kick butt “All My Children” which in a matters of months, will ALSO be back in TV, but over at NBC. I guy can dream right??? LOL…All kidding aside, everyone should give Prospect Park applause all around for their efforts and rest assure OLTL will be back, and “The View” will have a huge replacement after Barbara! Looking forward for the next season of AMC and the announcement of OLTL return and The View’s new head hen!

I said it from the start Katie is so over, I am shocked she lasted this long. ABC needs to realize she is a has been. I would rather watch a slice of white wonder bread on the screen. It would be more exciting.

I may be crazy, but how about ABC admitting they made a huge mistake in cancelling AMC and OLTL and doing whatever they have to to get the shows back on the network, and treating their soap franchise with the respect it deserves. I would be thrilled to watch these shows on something other than OWN or Hulu with restored budgets and full casts and better writing/production values. The PP people are to be congratulated, and I will continue to support the shows there, but they were so much better when there was more to work with. Just admit you mistake ABC. Nothing else is ever going to replace our soaps!

This is true!

It’s ironic and sad that we are being called names by the suspected ABC/D employee because we are still pissed that AMC & OLTL were canceled. She thinks we should join the real world and get on with our lives. Let’s see, there is a $17 trillion debt, Obamacare, NSA, IRS and Benghazi scandals, a possible war with Syria, devastating floods in Colorado, wildfires out west, and the boardwalk in Seaside just burned down, so if that’s the “real world” give me my soaps as an escape! Gee I do sound like a smarty pants.

Add to your list reality (?) shows that have become like a virus on TV, and all of the gun shootings. I don’ think you’re a smarty pants. Like you I think a lot of us need a time out of ” real life.”

Yes Rose , so true!

First off although Katie is produced by ABC/Disney it is a syndicated show. IN some parts of the country it airs on the NBC or CBS afffiliate.

If Katie gets cancelled that 3pm hour is not going to see AMC/OLTL or any other soap in that slot. The local affiliates were given that hour to program as they want. The ABC affiliates that do air Katie will find other programming to put int hat slot.

As for The Chew, all the numbers I have seen point to it being on par with AMC in its last season. I was determined to not like the show because it replaced the soaps. But over the last 2 yars Ive grown to like it they have some really fun and decent segments. Considering the cost to produce The CHew is just doing fine and is not going anywhere.

The only positive for soaps I see in this is it keeps General Hospital safe for now.

How is the Chew doing better than Katie???

Come on now, this doesn’t make any sense. Just switch the time slot for both shows and see how well Katie does. (Or how badly the Chew does).

wherever Katie is from…wish she’d go back there and never come back. she Is and has always been the worst. she is not well liked by the people who work with her and the perpetual smile and goody-two-shoes act is just that, an act. she would do the profession a lot of good if she would JUST RETIRE already. And along with her retiring, it would be such a good thing if they retired The View. It is awful and has been forever. Absolutely no reason to watch all of those screaming females in heat. You learn nothing, you get a headache and your breakfast is sure to go down the wrong way from getting your morning off to a very bad start. Adios y’all.

general Hospital is stil on the replacement shows on ly the Chew survives ashow I still don’t watch like Pavlo’s dog. Today on the chew reach for remote

Mark Consuelos Celebrates One-Year Anniversary as Co-Host of ‘Live’ Alongside Kelly Ripa

Today, April 17th marks a full-year since Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo, All My Children) took over the co-hosting duties of ‘Live” alongside his wife, and longtime co-host, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley, All My Children).

Consuelos replaced Ryan Seacrest who are six seasons decided to be back on the west coast full-time. For Consuelos, now having the opportunity to work off of Ripa as co-hosts has been something of adjustment for him, but viewers have been eating it up.

Live with Kelly and Mark has remained the No. 1 entertainment talk show on television over the past year, growing 3% in average total viewers to 2.23M per episode.  It is also the most-watched daytime talk show in the last year in key demos of women 18-49 and women 25-54. All of this, since the real-life marrieds teamed-up.

Speaking with Deadline, Kelly Ripa shared why the two are gelling on-screen, “I do think that there is something very possibly relatable about our relationship. We have disagreements like a normal couple, and we’re not afraid to let them unfold on the air and in front of America, and I think people find a lot of themselves in that.”

Mark weighed in how he has progressed as a host, and what he could improve at, sharing, “I’d like to get better at my interviewing skills. I’d like to get better at reading a teleprompter…I think I’m getting better at throwing to commercial. The other day in the middle of the show as we go to commercial, my sign off was ‘See you guys around.’ I mean, the show wasn’t over. The most obvious thing to say would be, ‘We’ll be back right after this.’ But I just said, ‘See you around.’ So we went to commercial and one of the producers (goes) ‘What was that?’ I don’t know… So for the next few sign offs, as a joke, I’d say ‘See you around.’ We got a kick out of it.”

Meanwhile, Kelly has given huge props to Mark, “I find Mark utterly compelling, really interesting, super funny, and he’s bold in a way like nobody else. He says what’s on his mind. If he’s thinking it, he says it.  I’ve done this a long time and oftentimes people will adjust their natural personalities to pander to what they think the audience wants to hear, and Mark will tell people what he thinks, and he doesn’t care if it’s not a popular opinion. It gives him an edginess that I think is really missing in the landscape today. Everybody’s so afraid to say anything, and Mark is unafraid to say exactly what he’s thinking.”

In a statement, Debra O’Connell, President News Group and Networks, Disney Entertainment shared, We could not be more thrilled with how Mark has seamlessly joined the show family as permanent co-host. His undeniable charisma and his and Kelly’s natural chemistry are evident as they deliver the laughs and smiles to our viewers each morning. We are incredibly proud of how Live has continued to evolve and that the audience is responding so enthusiastically.”

So, do you think Mark Consuelos is the best co-host his wife Kelly Ripa has ever had on ‘Live’? How would you say he is doing as co-host after one full year on the job? Comment below.

Jacob Young Shares Production Pic of Cast of His New Film Featuring Joan Collins and Nadia Bjorlin

Last month, during a livestream conversation on the Michael Fairman Channel, while promoting Jason Cook’s film, Four for Fun, and featuring soap notables Jacob Young (ex-AJ, AMC, ex-Lucky, GH, ex-Rick, B&B) and Brytni Sarpy (Y&R), Young revealed some intel on his upcoming movie project.

Jacob shared that he was set to direct, produce and star in a Agatha Christie-like murder mystery feature film, Murder Between Friends shooting in Prague.

The actor/director expressed, “I’m flying at the end of the March to Prague to direct, produce and star in a film with Joan Collins (ex-Dynasty). Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe, Days of our Lives) is in it, and Toby Alexander Smith from Eastenders (ex-Gray Atkins). Plus, a couple of my Broadway friends and a very well known Czech actress (Hana Vagnerova). It’s very ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.”

Young is currently shooting the film’s principal photography abroad through April 17th.

Over the weekend, Jacob took to his Instagram to share a photo with the cast of the film where pictured is former Dynasty star, Joan Collins (ex-Alexis) and former Days of our Lives star, Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe). In addition, former All My Children star, Trent Garrett (ex-Asher) is seen in director-mode kneeling.

Trent and Jacob are both co-directors of Murder Between Friends Joan Collins shared the pic on her Instagram citing, “This was the #secret I posted about several weeks ago!”

So, looking forward to seeing Jacob’s film when it is released with Joan, Nadia, and company? Let us know in the comment section.
