Listen to The Broadcast: TOLN SOAPS Live with Michael Fairman with Guest OLTL's Robin Strasser!

In case you missed last night’s episode of TOLN Soaps Live with Michael Fairman, the featured guest was One Life to Live’s Daytime Emmy winner, the one and only, Robin Strasser (Dorian Cramer Lord).

Robin fielded a myriad of calls from listeners asking her thoughts on the latest developments for One Life to Live and All My Children, in particular the announcement that the series would have a “Summer Fling” on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network starting on July 15th. In addition, Robin talked about working with her new OLTL co-star, Ron Raines, and her favorite scenes with her long time classic scene partner, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Plus Robin, a huge friend to the LGBT community, also discussed this week’s headline news that the Defense of Marriage Act was struck down by the Supreme Court, and that they cleared the way for same-sex marriage in California, and the fight for equality took a major step forward.  Robin also relates fighting for a cause to the fight soap fans took on to resurrect One Life to Live and All My Children.

Listen to the broadcast after the jump!  We think you will learn some thing about Robin you may not have known and much more.   Take a listen, and then let us know what you thought of the episode!

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
