Three daytime favorites appear together in one soapy story with the behind-the-scenes look of working on a daytime drama as a major part of it … ‘Hallmark-style’.  Look for Jen Lilley (Ex-Theresa, DAYS), Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan, GH) and Linda Dano (Ex-Felicia, AW) to star this weekend in Hallmark’s A Little Daytime Drama.

In story, in order to save her daytime soap drama from cancellation, head writer Maggie (Jen Lilley) must convince Darin (Ryan Paevey), fan favorite actor and her real-life ex-boyfriend, to return to the show.  Daytime legend, Linda Dano (Ex-Felicia, AW) also stars in the role of Alice.

This Hallmark Channel movie debuts this Saturday, August 21st at 9 pm EST/8 pm CST.

On Twitter yesterday, Lilley shared a video from Hallmark where she answered questions from fans, and in one of them, Jen gave a bit more intel about the drama and romance that goes down in A Little Daytime Drama.

Lilley previewed: “This is my favorite movie I have done, hands down, bar none.  In this movie, I play a head writer of a soap opera.  My character is Maggie, and she is facing cancellation (the show is) and so she is given the task to bring the star back, Darin, who plays Detective Preston Stillwater, played by the amazing Ryan Paevey. Here’s the catch. .. our characters used to date and my character wrote him off the soap opera, and he doesn’t really want to particularly come back. But the stakes are high and we have to make it work.”

You can check out a preview of the film below, followed by Jen’s Q&A.

So intrigued to watch Jen, Ryan, and Linda in this Hallmark movie with the soaps as its backdrop? Comment below.

With Linda Dano in it, too… I may watch it, too. Her hair looks much better in this Hallmark movie, than whatever hairstyle she was sporting on Days as recast Vivian earlier this year. Come back to Days, Linda Dano. Miss you so much as Felicia Gallant on Another World!!!
I’m glad Dano has made a comeback to television. It’s been a hot minute.

I watched it. And, of course, it was so lovely to see Linda Dano!!!! But the movie… no comment.
Jen and Ryan were good. I wish Jen could finally return as Theresa on Days with her son, Tate. I liked Theresa with Brady.

Hey there, Jeremy! My thoughts on the movie mirror yours. I thought Jen and Ryan had great chemistry, and both are appealing. Dano was better (and looked much better) in this production than her recent visit to DOOL. I too wish Jen would return to DOOL and Brady.

One plus I can give the Hallmark movie is its treatment of the soap genre, much of it, no doubt, from a timely, insider perspective.

Jeremy,
I liked Jen/Theresa with Brady also, once she got over her “bad girl” stage. I would also like seeing Ryan Peavey again on a soap, any soap.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ciara Saves Baby Bo with Assist from Heavenly Bo; Tripp Shifts Into Satan & Crashes Through Window

May Sweeps are in full bloom, and on Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the supernatural was front and center, and what Salemites hope will now and forever, put Satan behind them once and for all.

In story, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is one tough mama. She and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) track down AllDevil (Lindsay Arnold) and her dastardly partner in crime, Charlie Dale (another guest return of Emmy-winner Mike Manning), as the devil starts the Ceremony of Transference to make their baby a mini-Satan. However, AllDevil has a plan to keep Cin at bay. She uses a protective pentagram wall, and electrocutes Ben from penetrating it.  Then, when Ciara has to save her baby, a white light comes upon her, and she is able to push through the barrier, push out Satan, and regain her baby boy in her arms.

Tripp (Lucas Adams) arrives on the scene and clunks Charlie over the head with a baseball bat before he tries to kill Ben. When Ben comes to and meets his young son, “Bo”, Ciara tells Tripp that AllDevil is headed to St. Luke’s where he and Johnny (Carson Boatman), who was also at the scene, head off to find her.

At University Hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) is going to get Baby “Bo” checked out as Ben and Ciara spend time with their little one in the hospital room. All of a sudden, a white light appears and Ciara’s dad, Bo Brady (the return of Peter Reckell) comes through the light. Both Ben and Ciara see the iconic Bo, and Ciara tells her dad to meet his grandson, and thanks him for saving the day at the cemetery.

Inside the church, while upstairs, AllDevil flashes back to when Satan was inhabiting Marlena (Deidre Hall) and set fire to the place of worship 25 years ago, and fans get the actual clip of the classic moment in DAYS history. Just then, Tripp and Johnny find Satan upstairs ready to torch the place. Johnny gets a good ole’ toss across the room, leaving Tripp to fend off the devil.

But helps is on the way as Father Eric (Greg Vaughan), John and Marlena (Deidre Hall) are there to save the day; as they begin an exorcism, of sorts. In defiance, we see AllDevil begin to crack Allie’s neck as everyone looks on in horror. Tripp admitting his love for Allie, tells the devil to come into him and let Allie go.  The shift happens as Tripp is now the devil, and in order to fight off hurting Allie or anyone, selflessly jumps out the church window and looks in dire straits.

So, what did you think of this climatic episode of Days of our Lives, with more to come with the return of Bo Brady this week? Comment below.
