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 want to ask a question can anyone name me ONE couple on any of the four soaps that are a true romantic couple? I mean two people that love respect and nourish each other that is what I want to see.

Years ago on Another World their was a scene with the character of Rachel/played at that time by the wonderful Victoria Wyndham and she was talking to her mother Ada she was estranged from her husband Mac Cory/played by the wonderful Douglas Watson her mother said you need to move on with your life and she said my life is Mac! 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.

NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell Says Peacock Hit 18M Paid Subscribers Up From 15M In September

On Monday, during a webcast session at the UBS TMT investors conference, NBC Universal CEO, Jeff Shell shared that the NBCUniversal streaming service, Peacock has hit 18 million paid subscribers.

Interestingly, that is an uptick of 3 million paid subscribers since the end of September of this year, where the service had 15 million.

As soap fans know, Days of our Lives debuted exclusively in its new home on Peacock on September 12th, and viewers who watched on linear TV and NBC had to switch modes and pay-in for a subscription to watch the show.  However, there has been no quantifying data released on just how well DAYS is performing on the platform.

In terms of its sustainability and its ad-supported streaming platform, Shell added: “We were late coming into streaming, but we clearly chose the right business model.”  Shell noted that this strategy has helped offset declines in linear TV revenues, and a worsening advertising market.

The CEO went to explain: “We believe in the premium video ad-supported, dual revenue stream essential broadcast and cable on streaming, driven by key programming.” Shell also shared that declines in cable subscribers is putting pressure on affiliate fees and advertising rates, so it’s becoming more important than ever for Peacock revenues to offset falling cable TV revenues and that the TV ad business is “definitely getting worse.”

So, what do you think of the uptick of subscribers to Peacock since September? Is Days of our Lives a key player in this? Have you gotten use to watching your favorite soap on the streaming platform? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

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”
