The Brains behind "Mr. Kitty's True Soap Stories" Speaks!

Mr. Kitty and Stacy

The brilliant parody that took the Internet by storm recently was the four installments of True Soap Stories of Y&R’s stuffed cat, Mr. Kitty.   Greg Edwards, Y&R’s web content developer is the man behind the spoof and he spoke with Soap Opera Digest about the genesis of the concept and how he incorporated much of the cast.  Here are some exceprts:

“I started reading all the fan comments about the cat, and how there must’ve been some weird negotiations between Paul played by Doug Davidon and the kitty, and I figured I’d take that and embellish it and go way out into left field with it. I then went and talked to all of the actors and asked them to think about other actors they’d worked with in the past; I then said, “Okay, tell stories about those actors, but just put the Mr. Kitty name in instead.” I put it all together like that and it turned into this really wild story.  I came up with about a page of basic story about the cat that’s the clichéd small town person comes to Hollywood and they don’t know anybody, and all of a sudden, their head and their ego gets huge as they gain stardom … it followed every story out there, every cliché [laughs]. It was these certain points that I wanted the actors to hit. Then I’d sit down with the record button and I’d improv with them and act like I was interviewing them. Some of the actors I’d be really short with and rude to, and some I’d be really cool to. I tried to mold the story as it went. That was the way it went with everybody except for Jeanne Cooper[Kay]. I hit the record button with her and she just went off into this crazy story and 10 minutes later, my jaw was dropped and I said, “Okay, we’re done.”

Apple Inks Multi-Year Partnership Deal With Oprah Winfrey For New Original Content

In an effort to go head to head with streaming giants Netflix and Amazon, Apple announced today a marquee signing that will give it a leg up on the competition. In an effort to ramp up its original content portfolio, they have signed multi-Emmy winner, Oprah Winfrey.

Apple said the new deal will not affect Winfrey’s contract with OWN, the television network she launched in 2011. Oprah has a contract there till 2025.

In a statement, Apple related: “Together, Winfrey and Apple will create original programs that embrace her incomparable ability to connect with audiences around the world. Winfrey’s projects will be released as part of a lineup of original content from Apple.”

As for how the deal will utilize the many talents of Oprah, it is expected she will have an on-camera role as a host and interviewer, and could be in some of her projects.

For Apple landing this deal with Winfrey and other big names will keep audiences checking out content on their iPhones and Apple TV, and potentially bring in more consumers who want to see the exclusive content from O.

Reports say that new deal with Oprah will include everything but the kitchen sink from: film, applications, books, and content that can be easily distributed across all Apple platforms.  Winfrey’s “Harpo Films” will apparently own any and all content produced under the Apple partnership.

So, what do you think of new Oprah content and programs coming to Apple? Comment below.
