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?

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 Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”

Very sad news to report.  Robert Clary, who became a soap opera fan favorite for his roles as Robert LeClair on Days of our Lives, and Pierre Roulland on The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 96.

Throughout his daytime career, Clary always sang in his roles and is most remembered as Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) best friend, Robert LeClair.  The two would always perform at “Doug’s Place” in story.  Clary played the role from 1972–1973, 1975–1983, and again from 1986–1987.

During a break from DAYS, Robert went over to Y&R and created the role of Pierre Roulland when the CBS daytime drama first premiered from 1973-1974, and once again sang and acted on the show.  Later in his career, Clary appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Pierre Jourdan from 1990-1992.

On Clary’s passing, Y&R shared: “The #YR Family sends our condolences to the family and loved ones of Robert Clary known to the Y&R audiences as “Pierre” on our debut episode!” 

B&B also honored Robert by posting: The Bell Family & @BandB_CBS re sad to learn of the passing of #RobertClary, who portrayed Pierre Jourdan on @BandB_CBS from 1990-1992. Robert was a talented actor, a kind and courageous man, and a friend to all who knew him.”

Four decades into his career, Robert, who was Jewish, came forward with the fact that was incarcerated for 31 months in an Auschwitz concentrate camp, and tattooed with the identification “A-5714” on his left forearm. He was the only one of his captured family to make it out alive.

Clary was married for 32 years to the late Natalie Cantor, the second daughter of Eddie Cantor. She passed away in 1997.
