“His bags are packed, he’s ready to go …. leavin’ on a jet plane”, or so the song goes.  But Days of our Lives Billy Flynn will be back very shortly to tape new episodes as Chad DiMera following the long holiday break at the NBC soap opera.  However never one to sit idly by, Flynn during his time off is shooting an exciting new film, as we previously announced, D.O.A. Blood River.  

Flynn shared an adorbs photo of his suitcase, with his cat sitting in the middle of it, and expressing: “Leaving tomorrow for Louisiana to start shooting the adventure that is @doabloodriver and my oldest boy Regan isn’t to happy about it…#thestruggleisreal #lovehard #dadwillbehomesoon #catdaddy”

In D.O.A. Blood River, Billy stars along with D. B. Sweeney and Chris Mulkey in a tale inspired by Rudolph Mate’s 1950 noir thriller. In story, the film follows pharmaceutical salesman Sam Collins as he travels from Los Angeles to a small town in Louisiana to sign the business deal of his career with Dr. Alexander, a doctor specializing in Vaccine Research.  However, the outcome is not at all what he expected. D.O.A. Blood River is written and helmed by Stephen C. Sepher.

You can follow the film via its Twitter handle @DOABloodRiver for updates as well!

So, is Billy Flynn well on his way to becoming a name in motion pictures? Are you excited to see how D.O.A Blood River turns out? And, on Days of our Lives, are you enjoying the makings of the Gabi (Camila Banus) and Chad romance?  Comment below!

    Love Billy Flynn and will always support his career. I am anxious for his movie and know it will be great! However, as for the storyline between Chad and Gabi on Days….that truly makes me sick on every level. Can’t wait for Days to put the best pair back together which of course is Chad and Abby. I truly believe they belong together. The thought of him with anyone else on the show makes me all kinds of sick. So Days and/or Dena, please give the fans what they want. That would be Chabby.

      The storyline could take a even more sickening turn, Lora.

      JJ will discover Abby hiding in the attic. He’ll probably keep her secret…

      Jennifer could have a relapse from the pressure of keeping Abby’s secret, causing her to pop pills again. Her mind could turn to mush. She can become paranoid that JJ could spill the beans about Abby or arrest Jennifer for dope. To prevent that from happening, Jennifer can lock JJ in the attic with Abby. Jennifer can observe Chad and Gabi getting closer and closer and update the siblings of the progression of the Chabi relationship. Jennifer’s drug riddled mind could tell her that her children are better off locked in the attic than having anything to do with Chad and Gabi. Abby and JJ are updated relentlessly and tortured by Jennifer’s words of Chabi until they turn to each other for comfort…a ‘Flowers in the Attic’ type storyline. Then nine months later a baby is born. They can name the baby Nicest, Scient, or Insect (anagrams for incest)!

        That’s crazy! If the story goes that way like, Flowers in the Attic, baby born incest, I’ll STOP watching Days.Ok!

        Greg Vaughan’ Eric … returns… when? will they pair him with Jenny Bear

        and continue the partay… with favors ? they oughta

        because of the surprise pairing prior to Eric exit… with Jenny Bear

        DAYS should continue where they left off

        let’s see a surprise twist of “who’s afraid of Virginia Wolf”

        Greg Vaughan and Melissa Reeves are gamers… give them some meaty

        ps: I’ll be surprised if you read the series: V.C. Andrews.. “flowers in the attic” I thought the first two books were good.

    NOOOO! to Chad and Gabi. Still mad at the story line that ended what Chad and Abigail had going……………. Why did the actor playing Abby change? Liked the original one better.

    I am very happy for Billy Flynn, he is a great actor, but I do not want him to leave Days of Our Lives, and he needs to get back with Abby, I don’t like him with Gabi. Put JJ and Gabi back together and Chad back with Abby. Good luck Billy in your new movie!

      i’m with you… selfishly… all productions need to give them “outs” to fly.

      JUST KNOW WHERE YOUR HOME is…. with us.

      I just read somewhere… that DAYS has gone black… for a couple months.

      November 16, 2016 through January 16, 2017. it’s said they have 7 months of REEL in the can… and this two month stretch… will bring that down to 5 months.

      what can we do… ??? sigh.

      DAYS has been good again

      I haven’t seen Abs and Chad together… and it will happen… but .. it’s a wonder… that NEW ABS has chemistry with Melissa Reeves… that’s saying something

      Marci Miller … has HIT “it” and is off and running… Good for her.

      I just adore Gabbs as well… she’s the cutest … but she belongs with JJ

        I was referring to the 1987 film, ‘Flowers in the Attic’, Patrick. As for GV’s return, I believe he’ll be onscreen as Eric starting in February. Eric could reconnect with Jennifer, but I’m still predicting Chloe is having Ericole’s baby!

    Congrats to him but this week I have seen AMC’s alumni, the new 90610 blond actress and etc. It appears that Hallmark has taken over Lifetime’s job of hiring formal Soap stars and many of the movies have substance.

    Abigail is weird if me out behaving like she still has issues. I’m not ready to wish her on Chad and Thomas in her current state. He’s been through enough. It’s time for love and happiness.

      Why is it ridiculous for Billy Flynn to do a movie, Linda, or was your comment meant to be in reply to mine?

      If it was geared towards me, then that’s OK. I think it’s ridiculous too, but I was just pointing out how much worse things could turn out. I’m not hoping for a storyline like that and I don’t think DAYS is going there, but one never knows…

    Gabi and Chad don’t fit and (whisper her lines so nobody understands what she is saying) Hope and Rafael don’t either. Get rid of the new abby and at the same time ciara. The outcome will be a happy community in Sillysalem.

    Please don’t leave “Days” Billy , we love you !

    I couldn’t be happier for Billy Flynn. “Go their” exercise your acting chops

    you have such a finesse.. an old skool charm… a serial dream

    this is your job to keep

    like I’ve said… establish your footing… bank your nest… I know you’re smart

    Leading Man status is huge… the DiMera Mystique Lives ON

    Thank You Billy

Friday night was a good night for daytime!  With its first foray back on to network television since 2011, the Daytime Emmy kudofest, while for the first time held this year virtually, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, scored very well in its timeslot.

The CBS broadcast averaged 3.1 million total viewers and a 0.3 demo rating.  That is way up from the last time viewers saw the award show on TV when it was on cable network POP TV back in 2015 with just over 900,000 viewers for its initial broadcast.

According to TV Insider report: The first hour of the Emmys garnered 3.3 million viewers to top the hour by edging out a rerun on ABC”s Shark Tank, and then slipped to second place for the second hour with 2.8 million viewers.

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.


The ladies of CBS’s The Talk hosted the event; each virtually from their homes, in an event filled with at-home acceptance speeches and presenters, and clip packages. The show was produced by NATAS and Associated Television International

So, what do you think of the ratings performance of this year’s Daytime Emmys?  Comment below.

How The Virtual Daytime Emmys Came Together And Will Look and Feel

Friday night, daytime fans, soap fans, and all the hard working people in front of the camera and behind the scenes that make your favorite soap operas come to life; will be awaiting the announcement in 15 categories to see who is the recipients of this year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmys.

The show finally back on network TV and on CBS, and according to Variety the show is going to be pre-taped, but to keep the element of surprise, presenters  appearing on the Emmys were asked to tape 5 different envelope openings — and every nominee in the major categories presented will have been asked to tape an acceptance speech.

As for keeping the winners’ identities under wraps, NATAS President and CEO Adam Sharp shared: “We’ve established an internal process so that actual knowledge of the winner is kept as a need-to-know basis on a category-by-category basis.  Certainly as we get closer to final delivery of the show, on the week of the 26th, there will be those who start seeing the whole picture come together. But obviously, a big goal of that is keeping that circle small.”

Look for more clips and visuals than usual in the virtual Daytime Emmys.  According to ATI’s, Al Schwartz who is executive producing the telecast: “Since it’s pre-taped, we can really present, for the viewers’ entertainment, the best possible visuals for each nominee. There’s going to be time to breathe in this show. And also, there’s time to keep the pacing up, so that it doesn’t get monotonous.”

The ladies of The Talk serve as hosts for Daytime’s biggest night, even though everyone will be shown from their homes.  It all starts at 8 p. m. EST/7 p. m. CST and tape delayed on the west coast airing at 8 p. m. PST.
