Fantastic news this evening! One of daytime’s favorite leading men and one of the nicest guys we know, Jon Hensley (Ex-Holden Snyder, As the World Turns) is set for a two episode arc on The Bold and the Beautiful!

According to TV Guide,  “Hensley will play a doctor involved in Hope/Liam/Steffy’s triangle! Hensley’s character doesn’t have a name yet but a rep for B&B revealed the doc will come to the rescue when one of the three young characters is involved in a life-threatening accident in Aspen.”   Another accident?  Didn’t Steffy just have one in Cabo?  Clearly the young contingent should not travel to any locales because Urgent Care seems to follow!

B&B will be taking advantage of Aspen Colorado’s Fashion Week where the episodes will be shot next week with the episodes beginning to air the week of April 20.   Hensley’s appearances air May 1-2.   This is the second time the CBS soap will shoot in Aspen.

But the big question, would B&B just bring in Hensley for just two days? Or could there be something more in the works?  Are you excited to see Jon back on daytime again? Let us know!

Good news indeed! I had such admiration for the ATWT acting company. AS with OLTL and AMC, there was something about them being based in NYC that made the daytime drama better for me.

As for Hensley on B&B, I hope it can be long term, but we know how non-family members fare on this soap. There seems to be difficulty in integration and long-term storylines.

How many things about this disturb me? First his real life wife got shafted royally by a Bell soap, 2nd two episodes why would he get rid of 4 characters on the canvas for someone who we don’t even know, 3rd he has said he is only focusing on this silly stuff with Liam/Steffy/Hope. How much money can you make on 2 episodes? Jon go get a real job the Bells are poison.

I was happy until they said he would be involved in the hope/steffy/liam disaster! So sick of that stupid story line. What happen to the other players on the show?

Final Season of ‘EastSiders’ Starring Kit Williamson and Van Hansis Gets Premiere Date on Netflix

The fourth and final season of the much heralded LGBTQ series, EastSiders now has a premiere date of December 1st on Netflix, and fans of the show will see how things will play out for the Silver Lake duo of Cal  and Thom, who have gone through quite a lot in their relationship over the last three seasons.

EastSiders stars series creator, Kit Williamson (Cal) along with As the World Turns favorite, Van Hansis (Thom).  The last six-episodes that comprise season four will tackle questions such as… what does commitment really look like in a long-term relationship? And what unique challenges does a “gay marriage” present?

In story, Cal and Thom are back home in Los Angeles following season three’s cross-country road trip.  The guys are still trying to figure out if they are just best friends with benefits, or more, or less, than that.

Elsewhere, Douglas (Willam Belli) and Quincy (Stephen Guarino) are engaged to be married, but with very different ideas about what a gay wedding should be. Hillary (Brianna Brown) and Ian (John Halbach) are cohabiting peacefully; and Jeremy (Matthew McKelligon) and Derrick (Leith M. Burke) have taken a huge step in their relationship by fostering a child.

Deadline broke the news of the premiere date and the many special guest stars from primetime and more to look forward to this season.

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”

Michael Fairman TV will continue to bring you updates as the soap world mourns the loss of a creative force in our genre.  Share your condolences and thoughts on the death of Hogan Sheffer via the comment section below.
