Such fun Michael, thanks! I hope the show is a great success and stimulates viewers into taking a peek back into daytime soaps. I’d love for you to interview them all again after Dirty Soap is a couple shows in. It will be interesting to hear their reactions at that point.

Thanks for a great interview Michael. I’m counting down until the bubbles from Dirty Soap appear on my screen. Kelly and Nadia seem so naturally at ease with themselves and their colleagues. In fact, I’m anxiously awaiting your next interview with this group after their show has aired. Again, thanks for allowing us to look over your shoulder at the Dirty Soap bubbles.

Just watched the first episode, and it was pretty interesting. I must say though, I’m already not feeling Jenna Gering, Galen’s wife…..I mean, she has been with her husband for 18 years and she was acting like a jealous school girl, when it came to his love scenes that he had to do with his co-workers….it seemed a bit put-on and fake to me….she herself used to model and act, so why is she making such a BIG deal of the scenes, that aren’t even real? Other than that, I found the rest of the cast very interesting. Love the chemistry between Nadia and Brandon, and of course my faves are JP & Farah (Gigi & Rex Forever!!)

Please put AMC andOLTL on a TV station. As soon as ONTL goes off ABC I and so many others will be boycotting ABC because they cancelled best shows ever. ABC should be cancelled as a network

It felt a bit forced. I wonder what Nadia will think after she sees it and sees Farah dissing her party and then showing up and being all ‘congrats!’

I also thought Jenna’s comments about her husband doing love scenes strange. It’s work and they’ve been married for 11 years and it’s not his first time as part of a couple. Yes, she doesn’t like it, but she needs to accept it. And if she doesn’t like to see it, turn the TV off.

I want to know what broke up Kirsten and Farah’s friendship. They used to be peas and carrots.

Torrey, I agree. Actually both Gerings were pretty cringe worthy and boring. He just seemed uncomfortable, and this is a guy who has had to pull off at least one love scene with a male orangutan with less awkwardness. I cannot believe a wife who was around during that, would continue to be jealous 15 years into her husband’s soap career.

I love this show!! I loved it. I was transfixed for 2 hours tonight :-). It’s great to see actor’s outside their characters. I think it’s refreshing to have a married couple on, as the Gerrings. I wish them all the best in their careers. They’re all talented.

It’s obvious a lot of stuff is scripted, not in the sense of dialogue, but storyline wise. So it tends to be cringe-worthy at times. BUT, I do love Nadia/Brandon who seem the most down to earth. And of course, I love Kelly, whom I know broke up with her boyfriend a while ago–but the pain will obviously still be there no matter how long or who you’re with.

I actually think they have a good cast, however I’m not really feeling Galen and Jenna either. They just don’t feel authentic to me–I don’t know, something about them just feels…fake. I said it. Sorry!

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.

So, what do you think about some of the key points that the Days of our Lives producers bring up in their lawsuit against Sony? Comment below.
