Corday Productions & All Screens Media Launches Net Soaps The Interactive Soap Opera Website Platform!

After the announcement last week that Corday Productions and Days of our Lives executive producers Ken Corday and Greg Meng, along with All Screens Media Peter Heumiller, and Open Book Productions Crystal Chappell are launching a new interactive  online soap platform, today the official website for the venture is up!

To log on to the website Net Soaps/The Interactive Soap Opera go to www.netsoapstv.com  Once there check out the features and the concept which is Soap Operas … Reimagined! Net Soaps details, “We are developing the next generation of online, interactive, multi-lingual Soap Operas and Novelas. Together with our brand sponsor partners, we’ll build global audience communities and truly engage them with actor casting contests, location and show selection participation, viewer contests and more. In our world, the audience fully participates – and helps craft – the shows they want to watch.”

The site previews the following concepts: an actor/actress online contest:  “Soon we’ll be launching a site where aspiring actors and actresses can select a scene written by our creative team, videotape an audition and upload it to us. They’ll be incented to have their social networks vote for their auditions. Our celebrity judges and audience will also be polled and winners will be cast into roles on our shows. ” A writer/producer online contest: “We’ll also encourage producers and writers to submit reels and show concepts to us. If we like a show concept, we might fund it and test it on our sites.”  Viewer Interactions and contests:  “We’ll be building viewer communities around our shows and allow our viewers to suggest show locations, casting, storyline directions and more. And our brand sponsors will also hold regular contests providing viewers with the chance to win products, services and even walk on roles in our shows.”

Make sure to peruse the entire website and then let us know, what do you think of this new online venture where fans can have a say in the direction of the casting, the story and more? Are you excited to see what new soaps/novelas that end up at this new destination?  Net Soaps/Net Novelas plans to launch later this year.

I think this is a tremendous idea! Viewer participation is so key. There are many great ideas that people have, and this will give many people the opportunity to shape storylines, characters, etc. Interactive, on line audience participation is the only way to go to stay viable since with all the new technology people want to drive the process and be active not just watch TV passively anymore.

Maybe it will be a way to bring back actors from ONE LIFE and AMC –
would be nice after the horrendous fiasco over at Prospect Park and how
they had absolutely no clue whatsoever as to how to present a soap.

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
