While viewers are getting a new Thomas Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful with Matthew Atkinson, his predecessor, Pierson Fodé has landed a primo role on an upcoming CW pilot, Glamorous.

The projects to be directed by soap alum Eva Longoria stars Fode’ in the role of Chad and Ben J. Pierce (Fuller House) in the role of Marco.

According to Deadline:  “Pierce’s Marco is an ambitious and creative gender-nonconforming teenager who uses makeup and fashion to let his queer self bloom. Fresh off his high school graduation, Marco’s life changes when an unplanned rant on YouTube bashing a cosmetics company for their shoddy products lands him a dream internship at the side of its founder and CEO, Madolyn (Shields). On his own for the first time, this is Marco’s chance to live, love and grow to understand what it really means to be queer.

Fodé will play Chad, an ambitious alpha male who works at the cosmetics company his mother founded, styling himself as her heir apparent. While openly gay, Chad is buttoned down and unsophisticated, with a personality and wardrobe that would be more at home on Wall Street than the beauty industry.”

Pierson shared his excitement on his new role via his Instagram account stating, “The secret is out! I couldn’t be more happy to finally announce what I’m working on! #Glamorous”

Networks To Preempt Daytime Programming For Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing Coverage

Just as your favorite soaps are kicking into high gear for November sweeps next week, comes the news that due to the House public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump, daytime programming will endure several pre-mptions starting with the first two on Wednesday November 13th and Friday, November 15th.

CBS was the first network to announce their plans for their extensive coverage, and according to the Washington Post all other networks have followed suit.  By this move by the networks it gives the hearing some extra weight and exposure to the American voters and viewing audience.

So far, leading network coverage for CBS will be reportedly anchored by Norah O’Donnell and for ABC George Stephanopoulos.

On Wednesday, the hearings begin at 10am EST, the second is scheduled for Friday beginning at 11am EST.

William Taylor, the U.S. diplomat in the Ukraine, is scheduled to testify Wednesday and on Friday Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, is scheduled to testify.

The networks are expecting big numbers for covering the hearings, as they have in the past for impeachment proceedings and hearings.

No word yet how the soaps plan for you to see the episodes that don’t air at their regularly scheduled times, or if it shifts your soap viewing schedule by several days.
