She seems so much happier since she got off the show. In light of recent events, I understand why. That set seems like a tense place with rampant egos.

Can’t wait to see the finale -especially James Scott :). I have enjoyed the episodes, especially White Secret & I laughed out loud at the one with the date with the singer who sang “Michelle My Belle” to Michelle. Guys do that to me too. It’s so awkward!

Michael, this interview was beyond, beyond fabulous! Loved seeing Michelle again in her latest envirerment. She seems happy in her new role as a producer.Her fans will be delighted when her show returns with all the terrific stars. Loved this interview, Michael, because you and Michelle are so comfortable with each other. I was happy to see Michelles’ daughter who is an early actress all by herself. Looking forward to the next go-around, Kudos to all and happy holidays!!

My question is: Will Phyllis’s character be replaced by another actress so that, that wench Sharon can finally get what’s coming to her for Phyllis’s accident. How much longer are we gonna have to hear about how much she loves her soap daughter before she is written off??

I actually prefer Michelle in her series “The Stafford Project” to playing Phyllis on Y&R. I do miss her in scenes with Peter Bergman, Christian LeBlanc, and the Graz but he left too. I would love to see The Graz and Peter on her web series, also Elizabeth Hendrickson, Nancy Lee Grahn and Vanessa Marcil. I’d love to see Maurice Benard and Michelle too. I love love love The Stafford Project, it’s so funny and I always thought Michelle tried to bring humor to Phyllis. I always liked when she got to do comedy on Y&R. I cannot wait to see Crystal play a drug addict!! HILARIOUS!!

I’m more in love now with Michelle in her Web Series then I ever was Phyllis on Y&R and before The Stafford Project aired, I didn’t think that was possible!! I hope The Stafford Project is around for Seasons and Seasons to come. Congratulations Michelle on all your success, you are one Funny Lady!

Hey Shawna,
Ita love Michelle’s series, she is so likeable, but have missed her as spunky Phyllis!
She writes better stuff for herself, natch.
Miss her with Jack and his Red, would love for Peter Bergman to guest on the SProject what a hoot that would be! When she left I felt robbed of my reunion of Red and Jack.
Nice interview here .
Thanks Michael Fairman.

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.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

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.”
