“The Business of Love As Desirable as Ever” is the tag line from an official press release out this morning as Corday Productions, the producers of Days of our Lives, is partnering with TruLOVE Network, which is owned by BroadLit, Inc., to develop exciting original television properties based on TruLOVE’s extensive library of romance stories.

TruLOVE is a digital network with a new focus on global romance and programmed to capture the powerful female audience with a wholly owned original library of content developed by an award winning marketing, branding and production management team.  Since Days of our Lives premiered in 1965, Corday Productions has reached historical status having aired over 12,000 episodes on NBC, with no signs of slowing down. Corday is dedicated to revitalizing the traditional soap opera to suit current fans and engage new viewers.

“Our new projects with TruLOVE are sure to capture the hearts and fantasies of our viewers and we are thrilled to be in business with such trailblazing women as  TruLove Network/BroadLit partners Cynthia Cleveland, Nancy Cushing-Jones, and Barbara Weller, and we look forward to unveiling more details soon, in true dramatic fashion, ” said Ken Corday, CEO of Corday Productions.            

TruLOVE Network is unique in that it brings to the market a combination of classic and new romance material through many multi-media channels. Its library includes nearly 100 years of the assets of True Romance and True Love Magazines, including not only the vintage cover images now being licensed, but also a century of women’s stories about both true love and love gone bad.

“To bring these two romance focused companies together with the innovative partnership between TruLOVE and Corday is an incredible opportunity and together we look forward to providing fresh and original content for new viewers,” said Cynthia Cleveland, CEO of TruLOVE Network/BroadLit.

Corday and BroadLit’s first co-produced project is slated to be announced at the end of 2014.  For more on TrueLOVE visit its website hub TruLOVEstories.com!

No signs of slowing down? Is Corday really the only one not realising how much he is hated right now and has been for over a year? Why do you all keep pretending everything is ok with DAYS?

If they were to show reruns of the old soaps you would see how Daytime Soaps have fallen. We are now into gimmicks, mobs, villains , baby switches, mental illness, alcoholics , the walking dead that never die, over the top screaming.. Did I miss anything? Sad times ! 🙁

The only near romantic couple i can think of is Y’s Micheal and Lauren…Lauren may be a cheater but this is the only couple i find nearest to being romantic…i miss Mac and Rachel, Steve and Alice(and the house he built for her) on AW…i miss Doug singing ‘The Most Beautiful Girl In The World’ to his beloved Julie at Days…they all had their problems but they usually found their way back to each other…well, maybe Steve and Alice didnt…there was some violence but not like it is today…maybe its the lack of romance and so much darkness and violence… Read more »

The only couple right now I can think of– as dull as they might be are Dylan and Avery– they aren’t really romantic in the classical sense– but they do love, nourish and respect each other– but whether that will last now ex-hubby is now in town is anyone’s guess. My second runner up would still be Lauren and Michael– the whole cheating thing was a blimp on what was one of the most stable soap marriages of all time– and the fact they worked it out, unlike some soap couples, is a bonus. But you’re right —romance in soaps… Read more »

OMG, my mother read those magazines when I was growing up– they were part romance, part smut, and part trash–but never dull– and now those stories could be coming to the web—I guess what they say is true, what goes around comes around—-not sure one could consider these stories soap in the classic sense of the word—and if these stories were a bit x-rated in the 60’s I can only imagine what new internet version will be like.

Congratulations, Ken Corday and all the folks at Corday Productions! I am sure Mr. Corday’s parents would be VERY proud of all he has done with what they left to his care. I know I am both inspired and filled with admiration at what Mr. Corday has accomplished. Much continued success.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
