Thanks Michael….I may not be able to listen live (it’s a tad late for this little Irish lass!) but I certainly will look forward to hearing it tomorrow. Love to Crystal for the passion, commitment and time she has put into Season 1 of Venice.

Thank you ever so much Michael for bringing us, the soap opera fans, this live podcast of the TV Guide Canada Soap Opera Spirit Awards. I truly enjoyed it! I loved the humor, the wit and the pacing of the show. The podcast was most cleverly done and covered a lot of information in a not-to-lengthy format. Kudos to you Michael Fairman, Crystal Chappell, Galen Gering and of course, Nelson Branco for this wonderful presentation.

Michael, finally got to hear the show…congratulations on putting together a fab show. Crystal and Galen were fun and great additions to the show. Well done to Crystal on winning the various categories, and I was touched by Nelson’s comments of Crystal for Venice. Plus I totally agree that you can tell the calibre of an actor if you are still blown away by them whilst listening to their scene in audio. Everything came together for that graveyard scene, and I am sure that it will live in my memory as one of the standout scenes of tv and film… Read more »

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.

It’s a fascinating view of what goes on at as the director bring their vision to life in the world of soap in a realistic way.  Make sure to download the DOOL app to check out Kate’s journey.

Now below, let us know if you saw the first episode of Kate;s directing journey on the DOOL app and what you thought of it? Look for new episodes to be posted every Thursday for the next three weeks.

‘EastSiders’ Drops Trailer for Fourth and Final Season

While we all wait to find out just how Thom (Van Hansis) and Cal’s (Kit Williamson) tumultuous relationship and journey comes to its conclusion in the series finale, the EastSiders crew released their season four trailer!

Those complex relationship woes are intertwined with the wedding planning of their friends; Douglas (William Belli) and Quincy’s (Stephen Guarino) nuptials. Things take a comedic turn when Douglas’ colorful bridal party reveals itself to include: Drag Race’s Manila Luzon (who also appeared on General Hospital) and Katya .  In addition, original Queer Eye culture expert Jai Rodriguez is along for the ride.

But there is more to the story: Jeremy (Matthew McKelligon) and Derrick (Leith M. Burke), who are trying to raise a foster child are also trying to figure out their relationship. while while Ian (John Halbach) and girlfriend Hillary (Ex-GH’s Brianna Brown) deal with the news of Hillary’s bombshell .. she’s pregnant! But, is Ian also seeing someone on the side?

Check out the final season trailer of EastSiders and get ready for its premiere December 1st on Netflix.
