On Monday night, NBC aired a sneak peek episode of the new comedy from Eva Longoria and her team, Telenovela, which takes a look at the behind-the-scenes of a spanish-speaking sudser.  It was fun romp reminiscent of the motion picture Soap Dish with a new twist.  Any soap opera fan, or televnovela fan, would appreciate the nods to some of the infamous soap opera staples and backstage drama!

Series star and EP, Longoria also gave fans extra incentive to check out the show when it bows on January 4th  when she announced via Twitter, that her former Desperate Housewives husband and love-interest Ricardo Chavira will be making a guest-star on the comedy!

Desperate Housewives fan, recall Ricardo and Eva, played Carlos and Gabrielle Solis on the ABC primetime series.  Longoria tweet exclaimed: “@RicardoAChavira will be on an episode! He’s amazing and still my first love!”

Meanwhile, if you caught last night’s episode, one of the highlights feature Longoria’s, spanish soap opera superstar Ana Sofia, going through her script while a perky over-enthusiastic young actress joins in the scene, while Ana Sofia’s ex-husband who is now back on the telenovela exclaims (while perusing the script) “You’re not playing my love interest – you’re playing my love interest’s mom!”

I really enjoyed it. I had forgotten how much fun Eva Longoria can be when she acts a little crazy! It was good, silly entertainment.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”

Intrigued to see how Postscript turns out? Wish Thad would return as. J. T to Y&R for a another stint? Comment below.
