All we can say is “Wow!”  Crystal Chappell’s latest online web series, The Grove announced it’s official cast list last evening and it is filled with some of the biggest and most popular names to ever grace daytime television screens!

From what we can tell, at the series centerpiece will be Chappell and her longtime scene partner, Jessica Leccia, once again in new roles.  Chappell plays Nico and Leccia plays Ivy.   But then come the dueling families and citizens of The Grove  that will also be key and major components of the new web soap.  Yup, look for the Moynihans vs. the Kincaids!

Daytime Emmy winners General Hospital’s Laura Wright, The Young and the Restless  Michelle Stafford, Christian LeBlanc and Beth Maitland, Guiding Light’s Justin Deas and  Jordan Clarke all have key roles!  Add to that, daytime favorites formerly from Days of our Lives Peter Reckell and Nadia Bjorlin, and The Bold and the Beautiful’s Linsey Godrey, plus Venice’s Harrison White and Patrick Killian-White, and you have one talented cast!

To check the official casting announcement, go to the The Grove The Series official facebook page and there will be the reveal of who everyone will play! And for more information on the back-story of The Grove, the characters, and what is to come, visit the series website here!

So, who are you most excited about seeing in The Grove?  Let us know what you think of the casting of the series?

This is going to be fantastic. Can’t wait. Love almost everyone involved, especially CC & JL.

(btw all you one lifers. It’s over. Get over it. We all had to move on from our various cancelled soaps. You can too. I tried to watch it. Gave it 2 months and could not abide it. There is no need to mention it ad nauseam as the standard for excellence all other shows must ascribe to.)

REPLAY: Days of our Lives 53rd Anniversary Facebook Live Event From The Set: A Special Tribute, Preview Of The DOOL App & Fun Moments with the Cast!

It’s been a big week for Days of our Lives, culminating in Saturday’s annual Day of Days event with the fans and the cast in celebration of the long-running daytime dramas 53 years on the air!

Late last week, a fun and never-before-seen Facebook Live event kicked-off the last several days of fun, and was hosted on the NBC official Facebook for Days of our Lives.

It was during the live event that fans were treated to some behind the scenes access, and several previews of the new DOOL app that was also released on all mobile devices the day of the series anniversary on Thursday

During the event, Soap Opera Digest’s Stephanie Sloane, led viewers through a hilarious opening segment, which featured a walk through the sets with various cast members doing some very familiar soap tropes from: shirtless hunks, to bitch-slaps, a twist on a soapy monologue, and more.

Later, following John and Marlena’s nuptials on-air, Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn along with Mary Beth Evans, James Reynolds, and host for the segment, Martha Madison, chatted about the long-awaited wedding for Jarlena fans.

Bill and Susan Hayes were on-hand to tell the audience all about the “Video Vault” section of the new DOOL app, where fans can find classic clips from DAYS history.

Then, DAYS executive producer, Ken Corday presided over the annual cake-cutting ceremony, honoring the cast and the crew for their accomplishments of keeping the show strong and continuing its legacy for 53 years and counting.

Several cast members took part in a special tribute honoring the late Peggy McCay (Caroline Brady), which was an emotional high point of the event. Eric Martsolf led several key members of the cast who worked with Peggy, as they shared remembrances of this one-of-a-kind actress.   Later, Galen Gering, Lauren Koslow, Nadia Bjorlin and Eric Martsolf did a little “Show and Tell” preview of some of their videos inside the new DOOL app.

Martha Madison returned to the backstage celebration where cast and crew took photos against the step and repeat for the series 53rd anniversary and the launch of the DOOL app.  Madison chatted with several cast and producers who stopped by including returning fan favorite, Matt Ashford (Jack Deveraux).

The facebook live event concluded when Stephanie Sloane walked into the celebration with the cast as they gave a big “Thank you” to the fans for keeping the show on the air, and telling them to check out the new DOOL app for all the exclusive, fun content now and in the days and months ahead.
