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!

Kelly Ripa’s First Book On the Way in 2022

Former All My Children star, now co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan and a successful executive producer in her own right, Kelly Ripa, will add writer to her list of credits.

New this week is that Ripa is sharing a look at her real-life in a book, that will be released next spring in April of 2022.

According to the intel, the book entitled Live Wire will feature sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.

As soap fans know, Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) and the two share three children together.

The loglines for the release share: “In Live Wire, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.
Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor… Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.”

So intrigued to read Kelly’s book when it is released next year? Comment below.
