Primetime Soap Opera In Development For Fox Revolving Around NYC Restaurant Biz Entitled HUNGRY!

Speak no more primetime execs that the art of the soap and the genre is dead, when apparently all major networks and cable outlets are clearly looking to air more soapy drama after the smash success of season one of Fox’s Empire.

And on that note, comes news Tuesday from Variety, that Fox has another soap opera in development centering around the New York City restaurant business entitled, Hungry!  Marti Noxon, who is having much success of late with her other projects, UnReal for Lifetime which features former One Life to Live star Josh Kelly, and Bravo’s Girlfriend’ Guide to Divorce, is on board to be the pilot’s executive producer along with Meryl Poster from a script written by Nina Colman.

The concept of the story is that it’s an hourlong soap set in the down and dirty, cutthroat and exciting restaurant world of New York City. The series centers on a young, aspiring chef who lands the thankless job as a line cook for one of Manhattan’s most famous — and infamous — culinary stars.   For those who may also know Noxon from her other primetime projects, you may recall Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Angel, where she got her start.   Marti is also serving as the executive producer for the upcoming CBS drama Code Black debuting in September.

What do you think about the latest story concept for a primetime soap, Hungry?  Who would you like to see star in it? Comment below!

I would like to make a suggestion. I don’t know if you actually read the comments people leave but, if I May plant a seed for actor Matthew Atkinson. I believe that he can play any part you put in front of him. He just got through with a part from Young and the Restless back in March. Their Loss can be your gain. I say get a hold of his agent and book him.

I would love to see YR star Sharon Case and former YR star Michael Muhney.

Matthew Atkinson can really use a meaty role. Something that he can sink his acting chops into if U know what I mean. He’s a great actor he just needs a really good break.

Well since the success of Empire I knew it would just be a matter of time before each network would develop their own night time soap revolving around a business /industry. I was right.

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
