Behind-The-Scenes Of Venice Season Four Stunt! Watch As Gina is Run-Down By Lara!

Wally Crowder, the stunt coordinator on the hit Showtime  series, Dexter, joined the cast and crew of Crystal Chappell’s Venice the Series to choreograph the key stunt in Venice season four that just was witnessed by subscribers of the series in episode six that was premiered this past Wednesday.  Recruited to Venice, by The Bold and the Beautiful’s Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke), it was Crowder’s job to bring to life the game-changing car incident at the end of the episode where Chappell’s Gina is run down in a car driven by Nadia Bjorlin’s, Lara!

What is so significant in the story are a few things:  Lara had been drinking, she was driving a rental car (not her own as she stated during the episode),  and  as far as we know leading in to episode seven, she has fled the scene of the accident which now becomes a hit and run crime scene!

Venice season four is crafting a traditional soap love story with the team of characters seemingly scheming to keep Gina and her beloved Ani (Jessica Leccia) from getting together!  And, now we have this added to the mix .. the hit and run!  Will it ultimately bring together Gina and Ani once and for all, and against all odds of everyone and everything in the universe conspiring to keep them apart?

The stunt info is neat. But I am writing about how I feel about Season 4 so far. The whole Jake thing is just nauseating and very unappealing to CC & JL’s Otalia fans. Its depressing. I following some fan forums and ppl are just disgusted and throwing in the towel on the series because Gina & Ani are being kept apart way too long…with lots of sideshows going on like the ridiculous Owen in Heaven stuff….and now the Jake thing is too much…..so sad…..

From episode 8 season Four
Although I am not a fan of the “heaven” scene. I did enjoy some of it. I think there was a lot of missed opportunities in this epi. It felt like they were afraid to get too emotional. A little humor to lighten it up after a lot of emotion would be fine. Not to make an attempt to make the majority of it “humorous”. Not my story, but to grab the audience, Gina and Owen saying good bye should have been more emotional. Ani should have been at Gina’s bedside willing her to live. Gina should have seen this on the “tv” even if she did not remember most of it later. The Colonel could have overheard her. The hateful, Logan, had a really good scene as she spoke to/at Ani–some truth being told.

Aunt Jane should have at least asked, “who are you” to Sarah. There could have been a silent moment where someone says, we will explain it all later (which could have happened off screen as when Gina explain her father’s “mess” to Owen).

CC is probably waiting for the last few episodes to emit the emotion. It was just really needed about right at epi 8. It would be good if Season 5 about Gina and Ani being a couple again and showing it as they learn to make their relationship work amid their past hurdles and whatever their current trials are. That would not only be entertaining, but a good story to tell as a couple triumphs

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.”
