Daytime Emmy Winning Producer Wanted For Allegedly Stabbing Actor Roommate!

The search is on for a Daytime Emmy Award-winning producer who is wanted by the police on charges of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon after being accused of allegedly stabbing his roommate in their Studio City, California home.

The producer in question is Andre Bauth (who’s real name is Andre Salaman Bautista).  Andre took home a Daytime Emmy this past April for the hit online Emmy-winning soap opera, The Bay!

According to reports, which began from local CBS news in Los Angeles and has now made it’s way to mainstream entertainment outlets, actor Clayton Haymes claims his landlord and manager Andre Bauth attacked him Tuesday morning after an argument ensued about the Oscars.

Haymes related what happened prior to his stabbing to the chest.  The actor says a group of roommates had returned home from dinner and drinks when Bauth told them he would win five Oscars one day: “When he said ‘five Oscars,’ we all just kinda laughed a little bit, and he got really upset.”

Haymes claims Bauth chased him into a room and swung at him with a kitchen knife a couple of times before allegedly stabbing him.  He then reportedly fled the scene and has not been seen since.  As of Thursday night, the LAPD were still looking for him.

Even more bizarre is that aside from their tenant-landlord relationship Haymes and Bauth are both appearing in a film called El Landlord which Bauth produced.  Haymes said the film was about a man with Hollywood aspirations who rents out his home to people, and ends up killing some of his tenants!

Tonight, On-Air On-Soaps spoke with The Bay’s creator, Gregori J. Martin on the incident and to clarify Bauth’s involvement with the series.  Martin said in a statement: “Andre was a producer on The Bay in credit only, who helped facilitate locations for previous episodes of the series.  At the current time The Bay’s core producers have not been in touch with Andre and to my knowledge have not been for several months.  We are all just learning about the details of the incident just like everyone else.  Anytime Andre Bauth visited the set, he was always a very nice guy, so this news comes to us as completely unexpected.  This is terrible news and we hope everything gets resolved quickly.”

Below watch the CBS 2 News report on the alleged stabbing.  Then, let us know what you think of this bizarre case!

I was roomates with Andre in 2009. He was alway kind of out there and would yell from time to time but I never thought he would stab someone.

Very strange story.. I think there is more to this story that we know…. Not sure what it is .. but there are some very strange things about this….
1. Trying to kill your roommate .. just like the movie you both were in….
2. The roommates emotions in the interview seemed very odd and not real.. but not sure how I would react if I got stabbed… Just left me with a strange feeling about the situation..

I hope justice prevails for whoever deserves it….

So he did not kill him? Is there any chance this is a very sick way of getting PR for this movie?

It’s kind of depressing that an Emmy winning producer has to have a roommate.
What were they fighting over?
The television remote?

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
