I am glad , because no one can replace the one and only Mrs. C. . Michael Learned played the part of Mrs. C. and it was ok , but she played better as Olivia Walton of the “Waltons” .

I don’t watch Y & R anymore, but I sure will on the 28th. I started watching soaps when Y & R first came on – I loved Jeanne Cooper and Kathryn Chancelor was the very first villianess I attached too. In the early days she was a drunk and Jill was her housekeeper. Loved her!!

I am glad CBS, Sony, and the Bells are doing this tribute. It is a shame it follows her passing as, had she been well, Cooper and Katherine would be going strong. Anniversaries of this magnitude should be celebrated in special episodes or tributes. I will be watching, as will millions of Y&R fans past and present.

I don’t watch either. However, my grandmother (who died at 92 this last Nov) watched for 39 years up until she went into the hospital. I loved Miss Kay and would watch with her at times. It felt like my Grandmother died all over again when Jeanne did. I hope they are meeting in the afterlife. It’s a nice thought…..

YES, I have watched the y&r for about 34 + years and it will never be the same without Jeanne.I loved her like a mom ,we had talked on facebook and she told me to never give up on my dreams and I know she meant it .I also feel in my heart that she was the same on stage as she was in real life ,just a good,caring person.I feel like she would not pretend to be something she was not nor do I believe she looked down on anyone for what they did or didn’t have .In other words she was just herself to everyone she worked with or met.A good person all the way around.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
