Queens Of Drama Officially Canceled By Pop After 1 Season!

The docu-drama Queens of Drama featurting several actresses notable to daytime has been officially canceled by Pop.

There had been reports that the cable network was working on a second season, but for months no one has heard a peep out of Pop on the soapy series.

Queens of Drama starred: Lindsay Hartley, Crystal Hunt, Vanessa Marcil, Chrystee Pharris, Hunter Tylo, and Donna Mills.  Thinkfactory Media were the producers of the series, and the first season began airing following the 42nd annual Daytime Emmys on April 26, 2015.  The news was first reported by Deadline.

So, is it time for another daytime soap/reality hybrid series?  Both E’s Dirty Soap and Pop’s Queens of Drama failed.  If there was another one created, who would you like to see star in it this time?  Or perhaps, this hybrid type of series should just be left alone and never tackled again? Comment below!

POP is on no ones radar! How about bringing one of the popular web series to TV? Lifetime or Hallmark?

I enjoyed Dirty Soap, and was surprised it was cancelled. Queens of Drama was pretty awful, I quit watching after the second or third episode.

Dirty Soap, even though contrived at times, was good fun. Never saw Queens, as my cable provider doesn’t carry POP.

This was so bad that I stopped watching after a few episodes. Not missing it at all. It really was “forced”. Save the reality stuff and give me another real soap!

Well, that’s a shame. I actually enjoyed it.

Kelly Ripa To Guest Star On CW’s Riverdale

Here’s a fun bit of casting news!  Live with Kelly and Ryan and former All My Children star, Kelly Ripa  (Ex-Hayley) is joining her real-life husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) on the hit CW soapy drama Riverdale.

Consuelos already plays the the role of Hiram Lodge, and now Ripa will plays his mistress, Mrs. Mulwray.

Kelly shared the inspired-casting choice on Instagram relating: “It’s a family affair …23 years of auditioning for a role i was born to play. Coming soon to the CW;s Riverdale.”’

The CW released a statement on the casting of Ripa, adding: “Kelly Ripa will guest star on Riverdale as Mrs. Mulwray. Confident and tough, she is Hiram Lodge’s alleged mistress. She’s a beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized.”

Film buffs take note!  Ripa’s character name is borrowed from Faye Dunaway’s Oscar-nominated role in Chinatown (1974), Evelyn Mulwray.   Those who saw Chinatown know that Evelyn was a femme fatale as well caught up in a conspiracy!

And there is more “All in the Consuleos Family” casting.  The couple’s son Michael is portraying the teen-aged version of Hiram on tonight’s all-new episode.

Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT
