According to Deadline, look for Kanakaredes new series ‘Greek Candy’ to hit the new Amazon streaming service, IMDb TV as part of its inaugural launch.

Congrats to Melina on her upcoming projects. However, I wish Days of Our Lives would scoop her up… even temporary and cast her as the New Hope Brady, and when Ciara returns in the summer… and finally have Hope return to Salem! This would give closure to Hope’s character and to her family/friends in Salem (and to us the audience)… and also allow Melina to work on her projects.
Hope could and should be recasted and Melina would be my choice if she wanted to briefly return to daytime.

I so loved her as Eleni on GL when she was with Alan Michael Spaulding or married to Frank Cooper but I also liked her Dr.role in the night time drama Providence. What she could add to day time TV, not only talent but beauty! I wish her well on her new endeavor.
