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!

All My Children Alum Cornelius Smith Jr. Joins the Cast of Apple TV+ Limited Series, ‘Five Days At Memorial’

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.

The series will stream on Apple TV+, and no word yet as to when it will have its debut following its filming.

 

Since his time on All My Children, Smith has appeared on ABC’s Scandal, and had recurring roles on God Friended MeSelf Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker and Manhunt.

Deadline broke the casting news.

So, looking forward to seeing Cornelius back on our screens? Do you remember his work as Dr. Frankie Hubbard on All My Children? Comment below.
