Three -time Daytime Emmy winner Sarah Brown (GH, DAYS, B&B) is the big name just revealed by Crystal Chappell who will be playing one of the leading roles of Katherine in the upcoming political soap series with a spin, Beacon Hill!

Brown’s character in Beacon Hill is described as:  “State Representative Katherine Wesley is a rising star in the Democratic Party, despite her family’s long history as staunch Republicans. Senator Preston’s stroke may give her a chance at a larger prize, but Sara’s return could make her doubt her next step.”

Sarah Brown joins already announced Louise Sorel (Ex-Vivian DAYS) as Emily Tanner and Chappell as Claire Preston! For more on Beacon Hill, go to the show website here! 

Now let us know what you think of the casting of Sarah Brown? Excited to see her in the role? Who else do you think Chappell and company are planning to play the other key roles in this upcoming series? Share your thoughts!

Nice! I will definitely be watching if Sarah Brown is in it. She’s one of the best actresses ever!

There already was a show called Beacon Hill in the 1970s with some former soap stars…one was Maeve Mcguire…ex Nicole of E.O.N. but it was a short lived ripoff of Britains Upstairs Downstairs.

I agree with you aria. sarah brown was the best carly period. she is the original carly. laura wright is ok. but they should fire her. Bring back sarah brown again in the role of carly. i would be so happy. she is a wonderful actress.

What I loved about Sarah Brown (and Tamara Braun to a degree) was how she brought that redneck, trailer trash aspect of Carly to fruition while still maintaining the fact that she was a millionairess (hello, married to a Quartermaine and a Corinthos).

Laura Wright hasn’t done that at all.

So very happy for Sarah Joy Brown!!! She is so talented and deserves to be busy acting in any medium she can get!!! I would love to see her on Y&R!!! If she could be back on GH as a different character that would also be fabulous!!! I would watch anything she is on and hope she gets on one of the other soaps soon!

Can’t agree with the above about having her back as Carly. She was great as Carly at that time… but where Carly has grown and gone… I want no one other than Laura Wright playing Carly… Laura has made Carly her own!!!

This web site would load so much faster if there weren’t so many videos playing simultaneously. Soap stars saying, “hi” at the top of the screen and trailers for TV shows I don’t want to watch at the bottom. It’s as bad as SOAPNet’s old web site. Ugh! And it’s such a pity, too, because I for the most part enjoy Michael Fairman’s news.

I have the same problem with loading too but i love this site …Micheal Fairmen is the best there is…

If it‘s a Chappell show it will be top-heavy with lesbians. Won‘t be watching. But Sarah is a good actress. Too bad she has to join the ranks of other unemployed actresses who pick up these types of roles.

Carly is well written for.

all actors’ who played her… WON.

talented…won after..

Top heavy with Lesbians… cause of Crystal Chappelles big tits and big lips? or cause she’s sensual?

cause this is good press?

Happy Lesbian Act…. i’ll take prop 8 and doma for what it is. lesbian-gay become equal. i’ll Will it and bcome in your face. Prop 8 helped repeal it’s law…

As for lesbian scenes, you can always forward them, its not the whole show.

That was cute, but yes, it can be done if you’re a straight woman UNLESS they are personal friends of yours that you will watch anything they do! 😉

Well, guess what? I am a lesbian, but I don’t feel the need to fast forward straight love scenes. I guess I am a lot more open minded than you are.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.

So, what do you think about some of the key points that the Days of our Lives producers bring up in their lawsuit against Sony? Comment below.
