Some changes behind the scenes for CW’s Dynasty as it enters its upcoming 3rd season.

According to Deadline. Sallie Patrick, who developed the reboot of the primetime soap with Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, has stepped down as the series showrunner.

In her place will be Josh Reims, who joined Dynasty as co-executive producer at the start of season 2.

Reims, has major primetime soap cred.  He served as executive producer on ABC’s Mistresses and Dirty Sexy Money and as consulting producer on ABC’s Brothers & Sisters and the CW’s Jane the Virgin.

Patrick, will remain an EP of Dynasty, but will now focus on development for CBS Studios.  She posted a message on her Instagram about moving on, noting: “While I’m excited to move on to my next challenge, it’s of course hard to part with a world I put so much love into, from first pitch to this 44th ep, but I’m so pleased with the team carrying it forward.”

So, what do you think about Josh Reims being named the new showrunner for Dynasty season three? Comment below

Yes, ERASE viewers memory with the flash-gadget that the “Men in Black” have and redo the show from the beginning with new writers and creators.

The whole storyline with Adam is so far fetched and enough to make me stop watching the show

Well I’d say that the new crazy-Adam is what makes the show interesting and his upcoming clash with Fallon. Everything else sucks…

Wasn’t Adams finger cut off when he was kidnapped as a baby according to last season fake Adams story ?

That was explained on season 2. Adam’s finger was never cut off. The kidnappers sent the Carringtons a finger from a cadaver…

Where do I begin? So many missed opportunities. The season 1 finale was amazing. When season 2 began they barely addressed it and instead handled it with silliness. (dropping Celia’s ashes on the foyer floor) Alexis’ face was shoved into a fire and she doesn’t even try to tell anyone. Really? And then the ridiculous season finale with only a couple redeeming moments. They need to focus on the drama, build the tension and then make the big reveal. The best episode of the season was Alexis shooting Cristal’s x-boyfriend on the horse, and that even was wasted and resolved way too quickly! The best cliffhanger of season 2 is whether a new showrunner can make Dynasty more watchable.

I agree, this is why the current showrunner stepped down, Sallie Patrick. To be honest I have NO IDEA how she became a showrunner since just a few years ago she was a Photoshop artist at Lucasfilms.
YES, they need to focus on the drama because DRAMA exists since the beginning of time and always sells, whether in true life or fiction. Alexis’ face being shoved into a fire was quite interesting, but she never tells anyone about it, because most likely they had decided to write her off the show. Nicolette said she needed to leave the show because her mom was dying and wanted to spend time with her. Possibly true. But Nicolette was written off “Desp. Housewives” for holding up the entire crew for over 2 hours arriving late and having not memorized her lines, which led Marc Cherri to give her a small slap on her neck (and then she sued him for it). And the plastic surgery of Alexis & the so quick recovery having Fallon’s face was way too over the top. They should keep her in bandages till season 3 when they find an actress that looks like Nicolette. The best plastic surgeon in the world can never make you look 22yo.
I am a bit upset with the creators for chopping off Bill Conti’s masterpiece Dynasty intro music into a 20 second soundbite. It is LAME thing to do, shows total disrespect to original creators!

Adam’s and Fallon’s upcoming clash will be interesting. But, ENOUGH of Sammy Joe He is boring as hell just dragging along. Nicollete as Alexis was awful. She looked really bored saying her lines (she was written off “Desp. Housewives” for showing up over 2 hours late and had not memorized her lines). I can’t wait to see Alexis version 2.0 and Krystal 3.0 (although version 2.0 Ana Brenda Contreras was great and now there will be Crystal no.3 Daniella Alonso??? OMG! Good Heavens! This is a DEADLY recipe for a show…). What are they? Fembots to upgrade their software and replace them? We still have not seen Claudia lithging up candles and naming them after each Carrington and setting La Mirage on fire Or how about the MOLDAVIA MASSACRE? I’ve seen all 2 seasons, all episodes out of curiosity, since I never missed one episode of the orig. DYNASTY. You guys took a really GREAT show and totally trashed it. The original shows was a big HIT in the 80’s so it might not be a big hit today, but the reboot you created is quite mediocre, and the ratings proved it. You better advise Sallie Patrick to sell her $5 million dollar home she bought last year, thinking the show will be a hit, and stop posting nonsense in social media, because she was demoted. The show will be lucky to have a 4th season, in my opinion. And since it is not on syndication (any show must reach at least 100 episodes to become syndicated) WHY are you showing it in so many countries? My friends are in Germany and are big original DYNASTY fans, well… after 6 episodes of the reboot they just don’t care seeing it anymore. That’s the news from Germany. and one more last thing; .. WHY did you chop off Bill Conti’s masterpiece Dynasty intro music into a 20 second soundbite? LAME thing to do, shows total disrespect to original creators!

I need Steven to come back. Miss his sibling relationship with Fallon so much.

Wish to see Steven come back and take revenge on Adam…. Not a big fan of the new Alexis though….

Ex-Nashville and GL’s Hayden Panettiere’s Boyfriend Arrested After Allegedly Punching Her

More upsetting news involving former ABC and CMT’s Nashville star (Ex-Juliette Barnes), Hayden Panettiere.  According to various reports, the actress was punched by her boyfriend Brian Hickerson with a closed fist in an incident that occurred in Wyoming, over the Valentine’s Day weekend.  He was arrested around 2:30am on February 14th.

According to TMZ: the police report said that Hayden revealed that she and Brian were in their bedroom when he started throwing her around and punched her.  The Teton County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a disturbance at a private residence. That caller said an intoxicated male was locked out of the home because he punched his girlfriend in the face.

Pantierre’s face was red and swollen, and she also had a scrape and swelling on her left hand; which she believed came from Hickerson’s watch during the altercation.  Deputies then decided to book Hickerson for domestic battery. He was also hit with a second charge of interfering with a police officer for allegedly refusing to identify himself.

Things looked like they had taken a turn for the better before the incident, noting that the couple moved past another altercation previously from 2019.  That case was dismissed, although he has left red marks on Pantierre’s body, because they could not find a “material witness”.

Now comes word that NATAS has launched its very own streaming service app to be the epicenter for all of its award shows.  According to Variety: “The service, which doesn’t yet have a name (but will likely include “Emmy” in its title), will be unveiled in time for the Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards in April, and the Sports Emmys in May, both of which are administered by NATAS.”

With the introduction of the new OTT app, NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp shared that viewers will know where to go instead of  how it went down in the recent previous years.“We were making it available on PCs and mobile in a clunky way. But with the Emmys OTT app available on any platform, if you want to watch on your phone you can watch on your phone. You want to watch on your TV, you can watch on your TV. And really be accessible to the audience. Wherever they are consuming the shows, we’re on it.”

In addition to that, looks like there will be some original short form content as well; including its first one “Behind the Emmy” that will combine backstage interviews, onstage acceptance speeches and some of the actual submitted content to really tell the story of the excellent creativity and production work that goes into winning that most coveted honor of excellence in television,” Sharp said.

So, what do you think about the upcoming launch of NATAS’ new app and the place to watch this year’s Daytime Emmys? Comment below.
