Tuesday night on the CW is the premiere of Containment (9pMEST/PST). The drama focuses on a pandemic and the officials charged with controlling the crisis and those quarantined and cut off from their loved ones.

From Vampire Diaries EP Julie Plec and director David Nutter, the series opens up on  “Day 13” of the crisis, with a flashback to “Day 1,” when the epidemic strikes, and authorities quickly move to mitigate the threat by isolating those who were potentially exposed.

CW describes the show as an “event series,” and it’s leaving the door open for the program to continue on if it is successful with the audience, although some early reviews have not been so favorable.

One Life to Live alum, Trevor St. John is in the cast which also includes: Christina Moses, Chris Woods,  David Gyasi, Hanna Mangan Lawrence, Kristen Gutoskie and George Young.

In an interview with Access Hollywood, St. John previews his character of Leo, an investigative journalist who is key to the series.  St. John admits:  “I love playing characters who don’t quite know right from wrong …  some boundary issues.  All they know is what they want and they go straight for it.  Those are the interesting characters.”   And as One Life to Live fans know, St. John played Todd Manning, who eventually turned out to be Victor Lord Jr., who inhabited those same character traits.

Trevor St. John is a super actor and I’ve been looking forward to this program because of him. I hope we get to see a great deal of him.

The concept of the show is very interesting. My concern is are they going to really tell a story or are they going to rely on special effects for shock value? My fingers are crossed for story telling and character development.

@James.
Awwww!! Really, James? What a big let-down. The show will not be the same without her, if it does get picked up again.

This guy should be a movie star. His death penelty story years ago was the best thing I ever saw on TV , never mind daytime. He should have won an Emmy that year. Walking into the role of Todd would have been suicide to another lessor actor. He had his own with all those sosp vets.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talk Show Pilot In The Works

This fall, new talkers from Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson will be part of the daytime television landscape, and now comes word that Drew Barrymore may enter the space with a new talk show for her that is in development with the pilot being shot this coming week.

According to Variety, details of the proposed one-hour show are not all clear, but Drew is said to be one of the executive producers of the pilot episode and yet there is no showrunner attached to the project at this time.  Barrymore’s company, Flower Films is likely attached as well.

Back in 2016, Barrymore had a deal in place with Warner Brothers Telepictures for a talk show, but that never came to pass, in part to a lukewarm response from TV station groups at that time.

However now the new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have ‘high hopes’ for the show and they feel that Drew will appeal and do well in the daytime arena.

Barrymore recently appeared in her third season of  Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet in its 30 episode season. Through her Flower Films she was been an executive producer on unscripted series including TLC’s Rattled and VH1’s Tough Love.

So, would you be interested. or intrigued to see what kind of show Drew Barrymore has to offer in daytime? Think she would be a good host? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
