Corday Productions Partners With BroadLit Inc's TruLOVE Network For New TV Property!

“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!

I still tear up thinking about that my dears that is what made soap operas great we have strayed so far from that to me it is sad. Yes I know we are in another generation but we still… Read more »

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.

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”

Victoria Konefal Confirms Her Exit From Days of our Lives

As the rumors circulated they were today proven true.  Victoria Konefal (Ciara) has left Days of our Lives as a full-time cast member with the long-running NBC soap opera.

In a statement to Deadline, Konefal shared: “I cherish every moment I have spent working on Days of Our Lives. It is an honor and a privilege to work in an environment filled with so much talent and passion in every direction. The experience and knowledge I’ve accumulated over the past three years is irreplaceable, and I’m forever grateful for it. I would love the opportunity to continue working with my castmates in the future, but at this time I will not be returning as a full-time cast member. To the cast and crew, it was an absolute pleasure working with you. To the loving and unwaveringly supportive fans, thank you. Thank you for joining me on my journey of finding Ciara Brady. It was a beautiful one. Cheers to some of the best days of my life.”

However with that statement, it does appear Konefal has left the door open for her to return as Ciara in a guest-star type of appearance or in a arc of a storyline- time will tell just how that pans out.

Konefal joined the show as the new Ciara Brady back in 2017, and became popular as part of the tortured duo known as “Cin’ along with Rob Scott Wilson (Ben) who’s on-screen nuptials aired this week on the show.

Since Days taped so far ahead of air before the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown and has episodes through Mid-October in the can, it would appear Konefal would make her on-screen exit during that time, since she will not be returning to the series, when it begins production again, which is projected to start on September 1st.

Konefal joins the list of departures since the beginning of this year which now include: Casey Moss, Chandler Massey, Freddie Smith, Galen Gering, Greg Vaughan and Kristian Alfonso.

So, sad to see Victotia exit as Ciara? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
