P&G making movies for TV and declares out of soap biz!

We all knew this had already happened, and it a sad to read it in print, yet again, but Proctor & Gamble, the original soap opera giant is definatelyout of the soap business, looks like for good.  With the cancellations of Guiding Light and As the World Turns in September, Marc Pritchard, the global marketing officer for P&G tells Cincinnati.com ( the headquarters of P&G) that making Friday-Night family movie nights, and soliciting pitches for miniseries, and other tv specials is of great interest to them, but as far as soaps, Pritchard stated.”I think they’ve run their course.” 

In terms of their goals with new family programming he stated, “We went to all the networks and said we want to be in family-friendly shows. We want to see more of them.”

Why can’t ATWT be sold to someone else like King World who owns Dr. Phill and Oprah? I called the number too, told them my 76 year old mother was very devastated in cancellation news, she just gotten over the loss of GL. It’s like a death in the family loosing these two Iconic shows and no one gives a crap.

As the World Turns Cast To Perform Virtual Reading Of Final Episode

In a once-in-a soap-lifetime event during the Covid-19 pandemic, the cast of As the World Turns will reunite for one night online for a virtual reading of the CBS daytime drama’s final episode that aired back 10 years ago this past September,

This livestream event is for a good cause and is brought to you by former ATWT cast member, Trent Dawson’s (Ex-Henry) theatre group The Katonah Classic Stage.  Dawson is the artistic director there.

Over 26 veteran cast members from ATWT, including Larry Bryggman, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Elizabeth Hubbard, Michael Park and more are set to participate in the reading plus some surprise guests.

The show will be streamed  n The Locher Room YouTube channel, 0n Wednesday night, October 28th at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST, where fans will also  have the opportunity to comment and ask questions of the cast,

The event is asking for a $15 donation to be able to see it and you can click here for more info!

Working with Katonah Classic Stage (KCS), a professional, nonprofit theatre group an hour north from New York City, Dawson is hoping this event will help those in need.  KCS has access to outdoor performance space that can provide a safer, more  socially-distant experience for the artists and the audience. The fundraiser not only  applies to salaries, but to health care as well; without employment most artists are ineligible for health coverage during a time when such insurance is critically important.

So what do you think of getting these beloved stars from ATWT together for a good cause to relive and read the script of the final episode from Oakdale? Comment below.
