Definitely yes on Roxy. I really want her to anchor a working class sliver of the canvas with her “sons” Schuyler and Kyle.

Meh on Delphina. I overdosed on her a bit by the time the show ended on ABC.

While I love Roxy, it’s time to move on from the Balsoms especially since Rex and Gigi aren’t returning. And I’ve had more than enough of Delfino. I was never much of a fan of the physic plots. The show needs now to focus on relationships between the A-team characters.

YES !!! too both

Roxy, as embodied by Ilene Kristen, became one of my top favorite characters on OLTL. Having watched the show from day one I felt she helped bring it back to its roots (ie: the working class Wolek family) but with amazing humor as a bonus. So, YES to having Ilene back in the role of Roxy.

Yes! Roxy needs to be back for sure. Maybe Schuyler can be recast and get out of prison and come back to town.

Roxy better be a part of it. The show isn’t the same without her dimwit character.

Delphina is ok is small doses.

I would LOVE to have Roxy and Delphina back on OLTL! Roxy is definitely needed, and I love Delphina popping in and out when they need her psychic abilities!

I hope with the new writing team that they can enjoy and write for these characters like Ron and Frank did!

Agree-Roxy all the time & Delphina coming & going. Love them both. But there is not a need for Delphina every day. I am so happy about this, just cannot wait.

I agree, love Delphina and she should pop up here and there like she did when Ron and Frank were at OLTL.

Roxy is one of the most wonderful and colorful charactors of OLTL. I can’t imagine
life in llanview without her. Delphia surely made her mark as well. I hope to see them
both on the reboost.

Yes, we need Roxy, and Delphina from time to time. I think a great storyline for Roxy, that would go well with the ABC ending, would be for Roxy and her band of soap fans to find out that they were successfull in saving Fraternity Row after all. Have it mirror what us fans went through, and let Fraternity Row be revived online like we got OLTL & AMC! Since the last we saw her, she was mourning her show like we were OLTL, it would make a nice ending to that story as well as help with the continuity, to help show that Llanview is still in the same world as when OLTL left ABC. I think it would be a nice nod to the fans that never gave up, and they could get in some good digs at ABC too… I agree, Delphina needs to just come and go like she always has, I don’t think there’d be enough story for her full time, especially in the half hour/four day time format. I am so excited, Ican hardly wait for OLTL.2. Not sure if AMC will work though, they need more of the long-term cast to return. I will be watching both though, and hope both are incredibly successful!

No we do not need Ilene Kristen Or Lea. One Life to Live has enough dramatic actors to fill the canvas for 30 minutes where they do not need slap stick scene fillers. That is just what Ilene and Lea are nothing but scene fillers. Roxy’s family was written off to Paris (and to be clear not Paris Texas, the real Paris) And the cast I am sure Is very happy about that. How about writing back in Patricia Elliott? She can act and was one of the forgotten one’s. I think it was absolutely horrid not to have her in one of the final episodes towards the shows end. Bottom Line is if these shows are going to be 30 minutes stick to a small cast and the core cast that the audience is going to see. And in 30 minutes you need story. And the story better work other wise they are going to get very bored quickly. And This time around you are sellling Ad space, Ad stream and Monitizing a site. So It is even harder to try to draw a following and a newer audience. You want to grow and expand. Be creative. Find fresh talent and maybe get people from the theater and maybe not even cookie board but outs. Psychics and people in hair shops are old school and very days of our Lives.

I wouldn’t mind Delphina coming back from time to time, but I don’t want Roxy back at all. I found nothing funny about her. Actually both are too idiotic for this show.

Cindy

YES to Roxy returning!!! They really need to approach her about returning to Llanview.

jen

they do not need that Roxy back!

Sharon

Yes, please bring back both characters! Roxy and Delfina are very enjoyable Llanview family members who provide special insight that we need. We sometimes have to speak to past family members who have crossed over or we need the care that only Roxy or Delfina can give. I believe that these special type characters is what made OLTL so different and so wonderful. Everyone wasn’t rich and powerful like the premise of so many other shows.

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.”
