E:20 new online soap from the makers of the UK's Eastenders!

Perhaps, American television and online soaps can take a lesson from what London’s Eastenders soap opera has created.  An online spin-off of their very successful Eastenders soap on the BBC.  It’s called E:20 which features a young cast and new characters against the familiar backdrop of the series, and the look and feel of it is pretty stunning. Here is some info from the show’s website.  Now that’s what I am talking about!  New talent, new writing and more!

EastEnders: E20 introduces Zsa Zsa Carter (pictured here), Fatboy, Leon Small, and Mercy Olubunmi who crash into the Square seeking solace from family life. With nowhere to live and no one else to turn to they begin to depend on one another for support. The foursome end up squatting together in 89b George Street and the highs and lows of their shared problems cement their friendship forever. As part of the BBC’s drive to develop and nurture exciting new talent, EastEnders: E20 has been written by 13 new London writers aged between 17 and 22 who attended a summer school where they created and wrote the online drama.”Developing an online spin-off using Albert Square as a playground has been fantastic,” revealed E20 producer Deborah Sathe. “It is so exciting to see these four young Londoners collide with the residents of Walford. The E20 site really celebrates these characters to the max and there will be lots of added extras!”

“I have no idea what to expect with this, and that excites me hugely,” added Executive Producer Diederick Santer. “That’s what’s brilliant about the entire project – we’re asking a whole new set of people to come at EastEnders from a fresh angle and to surprise us – and the audience – with what they do.”

Emer Kenny, who plays Zsa Zsa, was one of the thirteen writers. “I’m really thrilled to have been given the opportunity to both write for and act in a show connected with such an iconic drama as EastEnders,” she said. “Kids these days use their laptops more than their televisions, so it’s really exciting to be a part of a project that’s taking drama online and connecting with these viewers.”

“These talented writers are creating a whole new Walford, infused with their own experiences of London life,” added Diederick Santer. “A fresh perspective on a British classic, EastEnders: E20 will – I hope – delight new audiences and EastEnders diehards alike.”

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
