BuzzFeed and Telemundo Team Up For 10-Part Millennial Targeted Soap Opera, Much Ado About Nada!

Online and network soaps take note! NBCUniversal’s Telemundo and Buzzfeed are collaborating on a 10-part millennial soap opera called Much Ado About Nada.  But here’s the twist, which many of us have been discussing for some time now, using viewer or user fan interaction to influence the outcome of the storylines!

In weekly episodes of Much Ado About Nada, the storylines for the English-language show will be dictated by Buzzfeed data from its young, mobile-oriented and multicultural audience, with producers leaving a door ajar to tweak the narrative based on viewer reaction.

Much Ado About Nada will touch on classic telenovela beats like love, hate, betrayal, and revenge, all revolving around a woman who runs a social-media firm and is hosting a political fundraiser for her client, who’s running for the California governor’s office.

With political and social media interest running high among Hispanic and younger audiences, the 10-minute episodes of Much Ado About Nada are slated to launch around the time of the November presidential election. 

What do you think of the concept of Much Ado About Nada?  Should all soaps have a way for viewers to tweak the narrative of the storylines in a more up-to-the-minute way? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Katelyn MacMullen Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary On GH; Now, What Will Happen When Willow Finds Out The Truth About Wiley?

Since Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) first appeared on the General Hospital canvas as the school teacher who needed to let Charlotte’s (Scarlett Fernandez) parents (Valentin, Nina and Lulu) know of her bullying tactic sat school, the character has become quite intertwined to others in Port Charles.

We eventually learned that Willow shared a dark past with the late Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), and even had his child, but never told him about it.  Later, Willow seem to get the attention of two young gentlemen; Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard).

As of now, Chase and Willow look to be quite the happy couple.  But, what will happen when Willow learns the devastating truth- that the little boy she gave up -that is being raised by Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) isn’t really hers.  In fact, her son died when Brad took Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) baby to replace the baby that died.

In a post on her Instagram, Katelyn MacMullen shared that it’s hard to believe a year has past since her debut on the ABC soap opera expressing gratitude: “It’s been a year since I’ve joined this incredible cast! I love this show so much, and every single person involved. I’m so grateful 🖤 It’s been a pretty crazy ride for Willow so far, and I’ve enjoyed every second of it 🌚 Thank you @generalhospitalabc !! 🙏 #GH #oneyearanniversary”
