Is there anything Cady McClain can’t do?  She’s a Daytime Emmy-winning actress beloved by fans for her roles as Dixie All My Children, Rosanna on As the World Turns and Kelly on The Young and the Restless, but she is also a writer, producer, and director.

As her social media followers have seen over the last year, Cady has been developing a documentary series on women director’s and has traveled the world to interview and feature some of the best of the best as part of her series concept, Seeing is Believing: Women Direct.

McClain’s subjects for the project include: Sarah Gavron (Suffragate), Lesli Linka Glatter (Homeland), Bethany Rooney (Pretty Little Liars), Joanna Kerns (Crazy Ex Girlfriend), Betty Thomas (The Brady Bunch Movie, and Dr. Doolittle), and yes, former GH star and director, Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH and director, Pretty Little Liars), plus countless other unbelievably talented individuals.

And speaking of McCullough, she also part of the producing team of Seeing Is Believing: Women Direct, along with Cady’s husband, GH star Jon Lindstrom (Kevin), plus Kate Super and Amanda Quinn Olivar.

McClain hopes her documentary series will inspire a dialog where there will no longer be a delination between male and female directors, so everyone will be called a “director” no matter what their gender, if this is their chosen profession behind the camera.  As McClain and others point out, women directors deliver some of the most powerful and memorable work in this highly visionary and creative job that is predominately dominated by men.

Currently, Cady is looking for funding to complete her passion project via an IndieGoGo Campaign that has been set up and has already raised over $26,000 plus.  She is looking to get to $50,000 within the next two months.  According to her video pitch for her campaign and series, there are some definite fun perks for fans who want to get in on the action, and help support McClain and her team!

Check out Cady’s Seeing is Believing: Women Direct video here and see how you can join the funding campaign and help make this intriguing project a reality!  Then, let us know what you think of the concept and who else has attached their name to it in the comment section below!

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
