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.

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.

Lee Phillip Bell, Legendary Co-Creator Of Y&R and B&B, Passes Away

The entire soap world and daytime community is saddened today with the news of the passing of a true icon and TV pioneer, Lee Phillip Bell.

According to her children, William James Bell, Brad Bell (EP and head writer, B&B) and Lauralee Bell Martin (Christine, Y&R), Lee passed away on February 25th at the age of 91.

They shared: “Our mother was a loving and supportive wife, mother and grandmother.  Gracious and kind, she enriched the lives of all who knew her. We will miss her tremendously.”

Born in Chicago, Illinois on June 9, 1928, Bell was co-creator, along with her late husband William J. Bell, of two of daytime television’s most successful dramas: The Young and the Restless (Y&R), and The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B).

Bell’s career as a broadcast journalist began in Chicago, where she hosted and produced her own show, The Lee Phillip Show, for CBS TV for over 30 years. A pioneer in the evolution of the afternoon talk show format, Bell was a trailblazer in the exploration of timely social issues and concerns.  Additionally she produced and narrated numerous award-winning specials and documentaries covering social concerns such as foster children, the subject of rape, children and divorce, and babies born to women in prison, to name a few.. Bell interviewed heads of state such as Presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Regan; film actors Judy Garland, Clint Eastwood and Jerry Lewis; musicians such as The Rolling Stones and The Beatles; television and stage stars such as Lucille Ball, Jack Benny and Oprah Winfrey; and many other politicians, authors, journalists, fashion designers and rock stars.

She was awarded 16 regional (Chicago) Emmy awards and numerous Golden Mike awards. Bell is also the recipient of the Alfred I. Dupont/Columbia University Award for the special The Rape of Paulette, the first program in Chicago to explore the issue.  In 1977, she was the first woman to receive the coveted Governors Award from the Chicago chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.  In 1980, she was named “Person of the Year” by the Broadcast Advertising Club of Chicago and the “Outstanding Woman in Communications” by the Chicago YMCA.  She also received the Salvation Army’s William Booth Award for her distinguished career in communications and social service. Bell won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series as co-creator of The Young and the Restless in 1975 and was recipient of the Daytime Emmys’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007.
