It’s time for a crossover between CBS sister soaps, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless.

At the epicenter of this is B&B original cast member, John McCook (Eric Forrester) who started his soap opera career as Lance Prentiss on Y&R.

In story on Y&R, Eric comes to Genoa City to visit old flame Lauren Fenmore (Tracey E. Bregman), who he briefly had a fling with when she relocated to Los Angeles for a millisecond in the late 9o’s and thus Bregman was on B&B for that stint.

Now according to EW.com, on the upcoming January 27th episode of Y&R, “Lauren will reconnect with Eric, who is the founder of the Forrester Creations fashion house, just as her own company is considering an investment from Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman).”

Can Eric help Lauren out of her company financial woes?  Share your thoughts on the upcoming visit by McCook to Y&R in the comment section below.

Now this is a classy crossover that has relevance! Happy to see Y&R giving Lauren Fenmore some love. And to see it honor John McCook as a Y&R original!

In my opinion, they were long overdue in giving Lauren love. So nice to have her in the thick of things where she belongs. Now if we could have some more Jill sightings things will be complete. I would love to see Jill and Gloria have a couple of good tongue lashings for old time sake.

Didn’t know Lauren and Eric had a thing, but whatever she has to do to F¥@€ Jack over, I’m all for it!
I’m REALLY sick of smarmy Jack-ass!!

Agree about Jack! He’s a wonderful actor. He’s been stuck in one dismal storyline after another. He keeps doing the best with subparagraph material.

My hope is both Jack and Ashley get storylines worthy of the actors and our attention

In one of the episodes from last week, Ashley mentioned to Billy that she had a dinner date. Maybe they are finally going to give her a full blown relationship. I was upset when the writers passed on teaming her with Nevell. That was a waste of two soap icons at their best. If memory serves me correctly in my old age, I don’t think Ashley has been in a half way decent relationship since the Tucker years. in any case she is long overdue. We’ll soon find out

I still can’t figure what’s going on with Lauren’s company but I do have a feeling someone is behind the major dip in sales at Fenmore’s. The only thing I can’t piece is who could pull something like this if this is where the story will bring us. I am just glad Lauren is in her own story again!!!

I am enjoying seeing Lauren with her own story as well. She has been away for far to long. It’s nice to see hercin the thick of things. And adding Gloria to the mix is wonderful. She iscbarely back for 5 minutes, and already she is snooping and playing dirty with Jack o f wllcpeople. I will definitely drive Michael crazy when he gets wind of it. Jack is really u4ning into a bigger pompous ass then usual. I am dying to see how this story is going to play
out. And adding John McCook is like adding icing on the cake. Loving it!

Fenmore’s is experiencing the same sort of problems that Macy’s, JCP, and Sears are experiencing: decreased sales/profits. Real world problem.

Hi, James,
I have the sneaking suspicion that Jack is behind the sabotage. My grandmother says Jack is regressing to the old Jack of 35 years ago….the same Jack who left Victor in his office, on the floor, to die, albeit he did get Victor help after a long while.
I only hope Lauren does not wear her heart on her sleeve and gets hoodwinked by Jack and/or Gloria.
I am particularly interested how Lauren will tackle the ‘mysterious’ usurper behind the imbroglio.
What mystfies me is Gloria. Is she pretending to help Jack to get to the truth for Lauren’s sake; or will she back-stab Lauren for her own selfish, personal monetary gain? She said she’s penniless….so……

however, this plays out…. latest SOD issue poll

IS NOT

happy with Jack… no matter that Jack has got his bite back

Ms. Lauren Fenmore… is not to be toyed or messed with… unless its Carmine ( lol )

just saying

if you fudge this up… Victor is watching

at long last… with Jack the man abbot back… in full swing…

even I don’t think this is the best way to go about corporate subterfuge

it’s not something Jack would do ? The Fenmore and Abbott have never feuded ?

alas… since Phyllis is helping Lauren … look for this to be a an entanglement w/ RED

Phyllis and Jack need to both move on

I have a feeling that Phyllis and Jack will both be in each other’s orbits, uncontrollably with Phyllis helping Lauren and Fenmore’s and Jack becoming involved on the other side of things. Who knows?

It would li en things up to see Quinn and Shelia fighting over Eric. What a wonderful cat fight that wpoldcmake

Lauren is very beautiful. Why Y&r waisted years with Sharon when they had their lead lady all along. I say free her from Michael and have her mix with Nick!! Victor could be behind Fenn’s downspiral and she could want revenge by sleeping with his son! Why not? Heck i would love it even more if she went back to Paul so Cricket, Paul and Lauren could be back fromt burner again…

Celia
Celia

Hmmmm Ghlover. That sounds like too much work on Paul’s part. He has so much to digest, as it is….risking the loss or yet another child. Plus, one cannot re-create what once was. At their age, the landscape is painted by a different hand and with a different brush. The result would be drastic.
I want Lauren to come out as the heroine, smelling like a rose, concetrsting on saving her legacy from drowning.
I would love for the writers to have Lauren, A WOMAN, take the bull by the horns and outsmart Jack or whomever means her harm. I am not intrigued by the prospect of yet another helpless little woman caught in a love triangle oo old.
The stage should be hers…..she has been hidden from view long enough.
Furthermore, I dread the thought of watching Christine in action. She reminds me of my catechism teacher ( Sister Mary Catherine)……stiff and unchangeable. I can only take her in small doses.

Good answer about the Paul and Lauren idea. That would make for some interesting cat fights.

Loving the new writers as well. If they keep up the pace and the wonderful ideas, I will definately keep watching

I’m loving Lauren as being more than a prop for Michael’s arm or a “hi sis” for Jill. I like that they are dealing with what is current in department stores in real life but what I’m not liking is once again the show not building even a small set for Lauren’s office. One thing is certain, Lauren’s apartment, while nice, would have been redone a few times in the decade or more it’s been a set. It’s time for the show to give it a facelift as Lauren is in fashion and her place is a man cave. The other is she needs to be shown truly working with others to rebuild or save FENMORES.

The fact that Laurenis struggling in private and Michael knows nothing is ridiculous. If Jack knows and Gloria easily knows than a michael should have known months ago. It’s a fail on new regime not to show that this power couple know when the other is struggling and is there for support.

Also, why isnt she talking with her sister? Why isn’t she approaching Jack or even Ashley and saying let’s make a deal. Her reaction yesterday was unprofessional and I still don’t get why characters on Y&R can remember ” bad Jack” from sooooo many years ago and use that against him when he is clearly doing good business but seem to easily and handily forget all that Victor Just did ten minutes ago?

Jack coming to Lauren at her home and OFFERING TO HELP FENMORES and merging with Jabot is less aggressive then say “just buying up all the debt and calling in the loans and forcing Lauren’s hand” like Victor would do. Sure story is just being told but I’ve been hoping for more from these writers instantly so that I truly can say FINALLY!!!

I just hope that Quinn doesn’t decide to ‘tag along’…LOL!!!

I wonder if Eric will voluntarily fill Quinn in on has past relationship with Lauren. That would make for interesting pillow talk. Maybe he can throw Shelia into the mix as well. Take care and for listening

VICTOR IS CHANGIN SO WHY NOT SOME OF THE OLD STORYLINES SWITCH UM UP. AND GET RID OF HILIARY LET DEVON HAVE SOME REAL LOVE ID LIKE KEVIN AND MIRIAH TO BE TOGETHER BUT IF NOT LET HER HELP HEAL DEVON THEYD BE A CUTE COUPLE AND WHEN IS SHAMAR MOORE COMIN BACK…. BEEN WAITIN FOR FOREVER IT SEEMS NOW THAT DEVON IS HURT AND IN HOSPITAL BRING HIM BACK.

This is so great. I have been wishing for a crossover for ages. What a great idea!

There are so many possibilities with Chelsea 2.0, Jabot and Fenmore’s. Any one of those companies could and should have business with Forester Creations. Bring it on!

Mal Young and Sally Sussman have been doing such a great job. I thank my lucky stars every day that they are bringing us Y&R. Keep up the great work team!!!

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

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.”
