It’s been a busy month for Daytime Emmy winner Cynthia Watros thus far!  The former LOST and Guiding Light star first landed a guest stint on The Young and the Restless, which fans will begin to see air in November, and now comes word this morning via Deadline.com, that she has landed a primo role in a dramatic new series pilot from MTV!

The drama pilot entitled Finding Carter centers on teenage Carter, who has the perfect life with her fun-loving single mom Lori until a police bust reveals that Lori abducted her as a toddler.  Now Carter must return to the family who thought they had lost her, including her biological mother Elizabeth (Watros), a tough police detective who was devastated by the disappearance of her daughter and will stop at nothing to catch her kidnapper. As she navigates brand-new parents, a twin sister, high school and boys, Carter vows to find Lori before the police capture the only mom she’s ever known and put her behind bars.

Sounds like a very intriguing pilot!  Would you watch Cynthia in this series?  Excited about her upcoming appearance on Y&R?  Comment below!

Sounds like a very intriguing pilot!

it does….

especially the true to life analogy….

kidnapped children… however, they find their way home…. have to start over… anew… wings to carry themselves

it would be so nice to genuinely see… along with drama… sincere parentage… in this day and age… engaging in dialogue to fly

finding that balance to co-exist and love

Yes but it’s on MTV, the network that gives us “The Hills,” “Jersey Shore” and “16 and Pregnant.”

It will probably be as deep and meaningful as the Honey Boo Boo Show.

WATCH: Nancy Lee Grahn, Jane Elliot & Kim Zimmer in ‘Covid Support Group’ Episode Two

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) along with her creative partner. comedian, Kaore Bonell released episode two of the hilarious send-up ‘Covid Support Group” which features Grahn, and two other powerhouses known for their performances on daytime drama: Jane Elliot (Tracy, General Hospital) and Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva, Guiding Light).

In episode two, Bonell and the three women are joined by a very special guest; when none other than former Los Angeles District Attorney, who tried the OJ Simpson Murder Trial, Marcia Clark, shows up!  We won’t tell you what happens, you’ll have to check it out to see.

Watching Zimmer as a boozy version of herself, Grahn with her brilliant comedic timing, and Elliot who is also perfection in this, is just too fun that every soap fan will get a kick-of, and even if you don’t watch daytime, think about how everyone is going stir-crazy during the coronavirus pandemic, and amp it up a bit and you have the genesis of this oh-so-timely series.

Best line of episode 2 was from Grahn:  During confessions during Covid, she says to the support group, “I bitch-slapped a guy who was hoarding toilet paper at CVS, does that count? Or does Erika Slezak get my Emmy for that, too?”
