Y&R Preview: Week of April 15th, 2018

Courtesy/CBS

It’s a big week for Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea) fans, and those who have been following the long and twisty story of Christian’s paternity on The Young and the Restless.

Setting up the exit for Egan, who has made the decision to depart the series, in story, Chelsea was cornered by Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) about her stealing money from her company.  Chelsea told Phyllis if she does anything with the information her, she will expose that Adam is Christian’s bio-dad not Nick (Joshua Morrow)!

Now that Phyllis is reeling from the news, in the latest promo and previews she will share this information with Sharon (Sharon Case),  And from the looks of the latest promo from CBS Daytime, there is a shot of Christian in a car, Chelsea outside of the car, and Sharon fighting for her life in a hospital! What will go down?

Add to that the fact that; Victor (Eric Braeden) has been in on the whole deception to Nick.  He knows his son is not Christian’s father.  How will this all play out?  Will Nick once again be the last to know? Will his family and loved ones keep the information from him, just like Chelsea has during their entire relationship? Stay tuned.

After the jump watch the latest Y&R promo for this week. Then let us know what you think will happen on Y&R this week?  And, are you happy the way Chelsea is exiting the canvas? According to reports, the door is left open for a return.  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

WOW!! Kudos to mal and Company JT working for Paul and chris who knew and Sharon Yikes!!

waving! I knew!
day one; I posted JT was back to take Victor down, JT has many reasons why he’d love to take Victor down..
Victoria is sex, just sex.

JT had no reason to enter GC other than Vicior.
Of course nobody takes Victor down but watching JT & Paul try will be fun ..

JT and Victoria look like they are really smitten with each other and it seems to go deeper than just good acting. They have great chemistry which negates the premise that most real life couples lack chemistry on screen. Are Thad and Ameilia sure they want to go through with that divorce?

Maybe not, Harry….maybe not….they may not go through with the divorce. Actually, I thought they were already divorced? Not sure.

0ohh how awesome! Sharon in a cona WHOOPIE! 🙂 Finally she will be off my screen while getting her facial whatevers done. Outside of the great news Sharon will be comatose, I’m looking forward to Victor doing his thing and getting his bucket of blood, nothing like Victor in revenge mode to light the fires. Phyllis had best brush up on her praying. I see a twist coming before Chelsea’s last scene. Y&R has become quite good the past 4 months. Ever notice; they write the Best stories Only when writing someone out. that effort should be routine. ((As soon… Read more »

I am with you about Victor—cannot wait to see him go in revenge mode. The Revenge of Victor! And I was disappointed Reed dropped out of the Newman Boot camp. He came back from it acting more like a sniveling, self entitled brat than before. Moreover, what happened to that hair cut? He still looks like Peter Brady (I know The Brady Bunch was before your time but you must have caught the reruns on TV Land… Read more »

Hi Harry ..
Y&R is getting good!
I like what Mal is bringing to us..
I, like you am more than ready to watch Victor at work doing his thing to get his pound of flesh from everyone that has messed with his family and his empire!
Looks like Phyllis is about to lose a lot of weight LOL
None are a match for the Master ..

I agree. I would of liked to see Reed get a taste of the real world. I do not like this exit story line for Chelsea. I can not figure out if Adam will be coming back or if Chelsea goes to jail. What will happen with Connor ? Looking forward to the Sharon/Nick reunion. I am a little confused because the spoilers state that Billy and Sharon are going to be getting together to deal with the aftermath of the paternity issue. Any thoughts ?

Celia
Guest

If that is JT’s intention, SuzieQ, he will fail….no one can bring THE Victor down, except death….and death should fear him, as he will defy it, LOL. Victor’s every move is measured….do not underestimate his deviltry. Most aging people slow down, Victor gains steam with age…..and, wicked wisdom. Do you ken? Please leave my Sharon alone…please!!! Double LOL…. I don’t think you’ve explained your aversion to her yet…or have you….did I miss it? I should have paid more attention. HaHa. Hmmm….a twist you say?

Hi Celia.. The DNA switching has become tiresome. It’s done way over the limit of DNA junko.. If I were writing.. IF I were to have Nick as Christians father- that would keep Christian in Port Charles in the Newman clan. IF I want Adam to return, I would have Christians as Adams son to give Adam a reason to return, for his son. either way poor Chelsea would be on the curb, However! Now it’s on the table to steal minds and implant a person into another person. I would go that way and change everyone’s personalities, ya know… Read more »

Celia, I don’t follow closely and got confused regarding Christian’s paternity. Never was it mentioned that Adam was the father until Victor walked in one episode and pronounced thus. I am with you. If we are wrong the writer’s have played with us a bit more than usual. Best!

Awwww, my SuzieQ…I luv ya, too. …ok, you don’t like Sharon…I accept it, as you accept my disdain for Sonny–even Steven??
As far as Cane—I was being sarcastic. He is the exact opposite of a sweetheart. I am soooo sick of his and Lily’s “sweetness”, I need a barf bag. What is it with these forgiving women? Moi? Not in a million years….not for all the gold in the world—LOL.
Cane truly repulses me ….I don’t even find him good-looking. And, that new hair he’s sporting reminds me of Marmaduke–the cartoon from Archie. Ha!.

@Tani. Hi, Tani, Good to “see” you……rest assured, you are not the only one taken aback with confusion. How long has it been now? Christian’s paternity melodrama lost its punch for many of us, long ago. Sage was married to Nick, but had a one “nighter” with Adam; thus, Sage did not know who the real father was…..and so it starts… The story is that Adam is Chrstian’s bio father….but, because he did not want to “disrupt’ his marriage to Chelsea, he fudged the DNA test making Nick the father. Yet, Tani, I am not convinced….even after the latest episode… Read more »

Wow! Too many years on the road. I kind of think Adam should be gone. Let him rest in peace. However, a younger son could appear. For me a lasting relationship could be defined with young Adam. Newman; he will be a Newman, will he not, or was the issue which Newman, I honestly forget . Love Camryn. She represents the possible; either way. Let her be. Give Nick a breather, Because I had a mother with Alzheimer’s Disease it seems the writer’s have hit some key points that most don’t understand.: “fine and briliant one minute, one day, no… Read more »

Hi, Tani, Good to see you here….I am truly apprciative of the writers to bring Dina’s declining health due to Alzheimer’s back to the fore. I don’t know if you watch GH, but, Max Gail is doing such a great representation of the disease, as well. As far as Adam is concerned, perhaps, you’re right, albeit a return would clear Chloe, set Victor straight ( who’s acting as the upstanding human being with integrity and a conscience—laughable). By the same token, I did say that Connor should return, sans his mother, as a teen. A new generation taking hold of… Read more »

I never forgot Chelsea raped Billy, Kay, my lovely friend. In Myanmar….reason number 1, I never really liked her …how does one make such a complete turnabout? She drugged and raped him ( Victor’s orders….she did it for the pay-off–the sewer rat), resulting in Johnny–whom I have said for the umpteenth time, she ignored completely. How does a mother do that? I don’t care if Victoria adopted him; Chelsea gave birth to him. That is how a person should be judged….if one can forget one’s child so easily and so indifferently….well, actions speak louder than words. Actually, if memory serves… Read more »

Okay, color me confused. Either I am an obtuse dummy or this story just isn’t jiving. Of course, it could be both. I don’t understand how Chelsea stealing the money from her own company is linked with her fear of Nick discovering Christian is Adam’s biological son. Was someone blackmailing her? Jordan? I don’t always pay attention when the soaps are on so the confusion could be entirely my fault. Feel free to explain this to me as if I were a two year old. I am not defensive about my intelligence, or lack thereof. Thank you ahead of time.… Read more »

Celia
Guest

Well, Harry. I pay attention…I think I do….and, I am just as confused as you.
However, your Jordan idea is more than plausible…’Tis veeery interesting!! Best explanation…at least, one that makes sense.
I am in the same boat. Nothing about this new story bites….just as Alan, said.
I am absolutely dumbfounded…and, I know I ain’t no dummy.

I’m with you, Celia! I cannot believe all the variables in this story: DNA, fudging results, lies upon lies, Holmes and Watson (Phyllis and Sharon), Chelsea stealing money when she’s got enough already– I do think Jordan is in this deeper than we realize. If Adam is alive, why would Chelsea be pushing to marry Nick? If Victor is involved in this, I hope Paul and JT nail his sorry butt and they just write the character off the show– all he is good for is stirring up trouble in everyone’s life. The man needs some serious redemption, especially at… Read more »

Helloo.. I am going along with the story very well.. Secret is; Do Not Over Think It .. Just go with the flow nice and easy and then all fits together because I see it how it’s written not how I think it should be and do not dissect it , dissecting it and analyzing it that makes a mess of it because then pieces are separated and leaves them dangling.

@CeeCee & Harry….hi guys…I’m on the same pg, it’s like cooking without fire??? All I can gather is Chelsea started to panic…when she and Jordan got caught for their past miss deeds… She felt an exit plan was necessary in the event Victor came forward about her knowledge regarding Christian. Fully believing Nick would NEVER forgive such a betrayal…So in essence her relationship w/ Nick was more like 2 lonely hearts consoling one another…. I disagreed with the timing, WAYYYYYYYY too soon for them to form a connection other than friendship, it felt wrong on so many levels. She has… Read more »

@Fanny.
Exactly, lovely lady…..it’s all about the timing. One does wonder how this story would have developed had Chelsea and Nick taken thevpath to friendship.
Fanny, what are the chances she had planned this scheme from the get go? …..That she had her eye on Nick because he meant both stability and honor? Everyone likes Nick , and the fact that he is a straight arrow ( Ha!…well, for the most part?) and honorable, no one would suspect any wrong moves she made?
Of all people….not Phyllis!!—she owns neither halo, nor harp.

Hey!!!!! No Trump jokes, LOL. I forgive you this time, SuzieQ….it’s too funny, I admit it ! Bwahaha is right !
Anyway…I don’t think it was Phyllis (I may be wrong), but I do think it was Chelsea herself….at least, it’s logical. It happened soon after Chelsea found our what Sharon knew.
Nonetheless, as soaps go, everything and anything is possible.
Later….

The Chelsea character morphed into another personality way too quickly. None of this story line makes sense, other than a convenient way to write her out. Writers should have come up with something more believable than the Fenmore’s website scam. I still don’t get it. Gina T. beyond annoying on her vendetta. Hopefully things will improve soon. I will miss “Chelsea.”

Alan
Guest

Such dreadful writing. Chelsea’s out of left field confession of Christian’s paternity to Phyllis on Friday’s episode made absolutely no sense whatsoever. Chelsea is a grifter and a con artist who would know that the more people who share a secret the greater the chance that secret will be revealed thus lessening its value as a bargaining chip. Why is Phyllis telling Sharon about Christian’s paternity after all the bad blood between those two? Sharon put Phyllis in a coma for a year while trying to stop her from telling Nick she had changed Summer’s paternity results. Phyllis destroyed Sharon’s… Read more »

To me, back in the day, when it came to the background music for the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, Y&R knew WHAT THEY WERE DOING!!!!! Nowadays…not so much. To me (in the current sense), the background music (in general) is pointless, dumb and EVEN MORE ANNOYING!!!!! NOT BUYING ANY OF IT…AT ALL!!!!!

I think it’s kind of ironic that now that Phylis and Sharon are on the same team, Sharon finds herself in the same position she put Phyllis in not that long ago. As the saying goes, What goes around, comes around. I feel bad for Mariah in all of this. She was finally coming into her own and finally accepting the family dynamic she has with Sharon and Faith.

Hi, Kay, We saw that by the time Michelle left, Phyllis had been more or less redeemed….she had become a likable character. Sharon did not push Phyllis down the stairs, as many think….if I remember correctly, it was an accident. Sharon and Phyllis have something in common….they both fudged DNA paternity tests. Sharon did not like the idea of Phyllis and Nick sharing a child ( Summer); thus, she changed the test to make Jack the father. Phyllis found out and they struggled ( after Sharon went after her by grabbing her phone and Phyllis slipped). Sharon did not push… Read more »

I realize Chelsea is getting cornered, but still I’m wondering why she would share any info on who Christian’s real father is with Phyllis. And then why anyone would share a secret with Sharon…ever. Since I started watching Y&R she’s always getting herself into messes.

..still not sure why Chelsea needed the $ for in the first place?
the revelations like chelsea spilling the beans about the paternity or phyllis sharing with sharon felt very anticlimatic…probably because the lead up was weak or the background music still sucks
officially over Ginas portrayal of Phyllis , shes like a pitbull with no playfullness or sass of the o.g. michelle
looks like its up to Sharon Case to save the day and the storyline again. that girl can do anything. can t wait for her and joshua morrow to reunite again. love them slowly coming together again

I figured JT was working undercover for Paul, especially when he

Wonder how it will all play out… Obviously a confrontation between Sharon

Oh, my lady, Fanny. I am so naive….JT doesn’t really love Victoria? That’s so sad and so wicked of him. He dashed all my hopes… I so wanted Victoria to be happy, for once. So, is his bi-polar behavior an act, as well? Oh, say it isn’t so!! As far as Chelsea, I did say that she would probably leave with both boys. She is lulling Nick into this false dream-state-of-happy-complacency. She is a witch….now Nick is starting adoption papers. I suspect, as Christian’s legal mother, she will be able to take him without worrying about the legal “strings” attached.… Read more »

I think JT feels for Victoria…to what degree, that’s

on Victor has trumped everything else.

Will Nick once again be the last to know?

of course… outside of pairing him so unsuccessfully with any woman. being dads whipping boy… and seeing Nikki console him endlessly.

I guess this is what is truly meant by : love the actor… hate the character

I feel badly for both Joshua and Nick….sometimes an actor is kept because he has ‘assumed’ ‘residency’…..but, when the character is paired with the wrong counterpart, the incompatibility will, definitely, rear its ugly head. I , also, think that Nick did not a ‘good’ father make to Noah….too close in age, as far as I’m concerned…..the sage father-advice always struck me as humorous….you’d think after he married Sage, he’d have gained some wisdom, LOL…. sorry for my cheekiness… I really like Nick….and… Read more »

Her attention span isn’t that honed yet….but, she did enjoy “THE Lion King” because we have read the book version to her so many times ( and the movie)…..”Aladdin” was a complete bore for her. She fell asleep… Okay,… Read more »

Hey there, CeeCeeGirl! It sounds like you had a lovely, albeit hectic, whirlwind visit to the “Great White Way!” And how sweet it included your own little lady….it’s an excellent thing to introduce the bambinos to the arts early on and I’m sure she took in more than you know….I vividly remember all my first trips to concerts, museums and shows with my parents, especially those that happily ended with me securely asleep in my mother’s arms! At any rate, you will probably be caught up on GH before I am…..at the moment, my foreign programs are taking precedence and… Read more »

No tears here, goodbye Chelsea and goodbye Y&R! This story is 2-3 years old, it finally comes undone because of Melissa’s departure and what, no Adam? What a let down. But its bigger than that, Mal Young has stripped the show to where now Devon is on ALL the time and we dont see Victor as much, Paul Williams and Michael, Lauren, once in a while, Dina is off, Billy and Phyllis are horrible, Noah is gone and Victoria is a joke! And by the way, if Tristan Rogers is done with the show, write him off while you are… Read more »

@Shay. Hi, Shaybelle, Awwww…it does sound like we’ve had a similar upbringing?…I lost count of how many times my parents and/or grandparents took us to the ‘shows’, as we called them, as children. Plus, my grandmother had a dance studio for decades, in the city. Rosie is a sweet, docile little girl….the opposite of her brother—but, she has her moments–Daddy spoils her more than I do… As far as Alexis? I, honestly, do not think this thing with Finn is going anywhere. I still haven’t caught up…..it’s musical theater time for my nieces at school….multiple performances; I have had to… Read more »

it is obvious that the JT story has totally been changed it was quite the rumor that he was going to be a abusive husband still do not like MY style too fast to keep up and really getting tired of the actors calling the shots on who they want to be paired with and they know who they are. I have found that most popular couples usually are not big buddies off camera it is called acting. TR has stated that the EP at both Y&R & Gh have no plans for him in stories.

Hey, T, I agree with you….but, you know what?, this ain’t the end….I look at Chelsea’s exit as the beginning of a new chapter. The ending is too abrupt….is Adam alive?…..I think so. There are three options. 1) This is, indeed, the end for Chelsea and Connor. 2) Adam and -a Chelsea recast- with a sorased Connor, will return ( Connor may return by himself, as Reed did). 3) Adam will return alone, sans family, unbeknownst to him his wife and son are gone. If Katherine is recast, T, where would ‘they’ find someone that age? It would have to… Read more »

Chelsea was either on the phone with Adam or it could have been Chloe?

Kathrine is gone.

Jill is still here. BUT, Jess is hardly on and she obviously doesnt have legendary scenes with Katherine anymore so thats why I think a recast would work.

You are right, Cane can go with Devon.

Hi Celia, I don’t think Adam (M.M. or J.H.) are coming back but I do think Chelsea is off to meet her mother. I take week long breaks because every time I turn around one or more soaps will hint at Adam coming back. That would make the ratings go through the roof but I think Mel Young who I think is a fantastic writer should have some respect for the fans and say “yes at some point he’ll be back” or “no there will be no return of Adam Newman”. That way fans of both Adam’s can decide for… Read more »

@Nikki.
Hello, there, Nikki,
WOW!!!! Good one, my friend. I didn’t even think of Chelsea’s mother! But, why?….of course, Melissa ‘had’ to leave; however, this state of limbo frustrates me, as, I am sure, everyone else.
I get the feeling, there is a storm brewing….no way will Victor give up Connor, a Newman, so easily. He will move heaven and earth to find them…
But, there is that insidious word, Nikki–‘but’……
It will take some time—perhaps, enough time to recast Chelsea?….or, as I mentioned previously, Connor will return as a teen.
And, yes….as devout fans, we should not be led on about Adam….you are, absolutely, right.

Celia
Guest

Hi, T,
My bad, here….I should have used the past-tense when referring to Katherine……But, I’m sure you know what I meant…
As yourself, I do wonder why Jess’ “visits” are few and far between…..Perhaps, she wants it this way?

Hi again my friend I said Chelsea was off to meet her mother because Catherine B. is going to be making a come back for a couple episodes so I just assumed with that in mind it was her Chelsea was calling on the phone and off to meet.

Hey, Nikki,
You probably assume right…you always do….this is why I appreciate these sites; everyone has such foresight, as you do…..I try, LOL
And speaking of what will happen in the future for Nick and Christian? It would be such karma if Nick and Sharon got back together….Christian will, once again, be in Sharon’s arms and life…..Full circle!!

Whenever i feel dubious about letting Chelsea leave in such an over-the-top way, we get an electric scene between Phyllis & Chelsea, like today on the elevator. If outlandish means we get treated to that level of great acting, I’m rethinking my position on realism!

Thankfully this awful exit storyline will be wrapping up soon. Chelsea is like nails on a chalkboard for me. I find the character to be very irritating. The actress always seems to be overacting and overreaching to me. I’m just not a fan.

Same here, dmr. I was never a fan of Chelsea’s, albeit I like Melissa….. On the other hand, I want Chelsea to be recast….down the road. I am one who likes things neatly sewn up…..yet, we all know , not giving a final outcome to stories and characters, is a standard on soaps. However, there are too many loose strings which need to be connected. What is strange to me is how Nick managed to get the lab report so fast. Did he use the “Newman Pull”? Even with that in his pocket, there is no guarantee the report proves… Read more »

Not that anyone gives a damn, and not to agree or disagree with any one person, but I can’t stand Sharon’s glaring, deer-in- the headlights face and nose in everyone’s business, i.e, when Noah was giving his going away announcement, she could hardly contain herself, once she noticed Chelsea’s ring. She acted putout, that she wasn’t asked her permission first, and what business was it of hers? I am truly not looking forward to she and Nick, reuniting. I adore Nick, trusting, kind, naive, gullible, etc. Not wanting to be a carbon copy of good old dad, unlike his sisters,… Read more »

So, if you’re tired of Cane What’s-His-Name-With-The-Toothpaste-Ad-Smile getting overly-frisky with his missus, then I am waiting with bated breath to hear your views on the always hot and bothered, sex-obsessed Alexis taking advantage of the vulnerable, lovelorn Finn…I know I needed the sick bucket!

I’m going to love it when Victor destroys Phyllis and Sharon ; both are into something that’s none of their business. I also agree with some other commenters ; why is Sharon working with Phyllis? There’s not a way on this earth that I would work with a woman who had an affair with my husband ; then married him. Victor Newman is the Young and the Restless. The only way I want him off the show is that God takes him away. I also don’t understand how the scam and Christian are connected. I’ve never liked Nick , Chelsea,… Read more »

My theory has always been, Boop, that Adam is alive and in contact with Chelsea. He wants her and his sons ( if Christian truly is his son)….nothing else makes any sense. I think Chelsea should have been recast. Amidst all of it, Chelsea felt deep guilt and regret for Nick; thus, leaving Christian at Victoria’s doorstep. Obviously no questions are answered and, more importantly, I am probably wrong. As Harry suggested, Jordan is in on this, in some way, shape or form. What surprised me the most, was how easily Victor resigned himself with the fact that Chelsea was… Read more »

So did Chelsea hit Sharon so she wouldn’t tell Nick about Christian because if Nick knew about Christian then Phyllis wouldn’t have any reason to keep quiet about the fraud?

Yes, Mo….that is what I think, as well.
Also, by clocking Sharon, she knew someone would find her and everyone would be with Sharon at the hospital….perfect storm for Chelsea to make her get-away without any encumbrance.

So sorry to have upset someone’s delicate sensibilities by my so-called “rudeness and snarkiness”. Maybe I didn’t use acceptable language in describing how I really feel, especially about Sharon, so I will say it very nicely, I can’t stand her, most of the time, but at other times, I can tolerate her. So, maybe to be friendly and polite, we can agree to disagree. They were right about one thing though, age does not preclude being rude or otherwise, we can be that at any age!

Violet, nothing to do with Sharon….these are characters, and each of us has an opinion….whether one agrees with the other, or not. I, totally, could care less what is said about characters….I make my voice heard in a VERY polite manner…unlike some….
I was reared to respect my elders….people, in general, actually…….something you said was very ‘not nice’, a while back.

‘As The Curtain Rises’ – Broadway’s Podcast Soap Opera Featuring Michael Urie

Leave it to the stars of the Great White Way to come up with a clever digital podcast during these trying times we all face amid the coronavirus pandemic.

On December 3rd, the latest installment dropped featuring former Ugly Betty star Michael Urie who is featured in the cast in the role of Bobby.

 

Here is the premise of the show: After the ‘Broadway Disher’ (Lesli Margherita) leaks news of a top secret, in-the-works, new mega musical, the Broadway community goes off-the-charts batty. Top-of-their-game Broadway Producers Cheryl Philips (Lillias White) and Steve Jones (James Monroe Iglehart), arch enemies, pounce. Who will get the rights? Will way-out-of-their-comfort-zone creators Kaye (Ashley Park) and Bobby (Michael Urie) manage to deliver a draft of the show before their marriage implodes? Will Director/Choreographer Zoey Taylor (Ariana DeBose) send the show’s budget into a free fall with her wildly ambitious vision?  Will Broadway Diva Emma-Olivia (Sarah Stiles) get a Schmackery’s cookie (with Sprinkles) named in her honor? Will newbie Agent Maxwell Fernsby (George Salazar) step into his new big shoes? And will Science Consultant Andrew Barth Feldman (Andrew Barth Feldman) protect the integrity and authenticity of the in-the-works mega musical, before he needs to leave this top secret show to star in a new Broadway musical?

As The Curtain Rises proudly supports The Actor’s Fund, the Broadway Podcast Network Frontline Initiative, and is a sponsored project of IFP (www.ifp.org).

Check out previous episodes of the podcast here.

You can watch Urie do his thing in the role of Bobby in this teaser released on social media below.

Then let us know, what do you think of the concept of the Broadway spoof on soaps? Comment below.

ABC’s Vicki Dummer & William Burton Among Executive Exits In Disney TV Cuts; Both Oversaw Aspects Of General Hospital

In a major reshuffling of the executive infrastructure at Disney/ABC, several lay-offs were handed-down including to longtime ABC executive Vicki Dummer who most recently was Head of Current Series Programming, ABC Entertainment,

In her position, Dummer oversaw the creative aspects from the network level for General Hospital.  Vicki had been with the company for over 24 years and was a noted longtime fan of the show in interviews she had given during her tenure.

Back in September of 2018, William Burton was given the position of SVP and Head Of Daytime, Sports and Syndicated Development/Production for ABC Entertainment.  He had been in charge of the the business operations for General Hospital at a network level, while Dummer continued to handle the creative.  However today, Burton was also let-go.

The exits come as ABC and Hulu have consolidated original content under Craig Erwich, and 20th Television and Touchstone TV under Karey Burke.

The layoffs are believed to have effected 12 staff members mostly at the executive level.

Deadline broke the news and then updated their story later today.

Just who and what department in the new structuring will take over General Hospital remains to be seen.  We will keep you posted once any additional news or announcements are made.

GL & ATWT Alum Tom Pelphrey On His Role in ‘Mank’: “I Got To Say Rosebud On-Screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher Film. Pretty Cool.”

What we all knew first, everyone in Hollywood and all of America is becoming to realize;  that Tom Pelphrey (Ex-Jonathan, Guiding Light, Mick, As the World Turns) is just a naturally-gifted actor able to tap into such deep emotional depths in every part he plays that make him a stand-out in every project he is in.

Now, this two-time Daytime Emmy winner, who is coming off a critically-acclaimed run in season 3 of Nerflix’s Ozark, can be seen in one of the talked about potential Oscar contenders, the film, Mank.

In the David Fincher film, Pelphrey plays Joseph Mankiewicz the brother to Gary Oldman’s Herman “Mank” Mankiewicz, and in a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Tom realizes the enormity of one of the key and most famous words in cinema history that he gets to say during Joseph’s reaction to Mank’s script for Citizen Kane … “rosebud”.

Pelphrey shared on the revelation that his line in the film is part of a huge historic fabric of cinema history: ““Oh my god. I didn’t even think about that. Wow. When you work on something like this, you really try to do your job to the best of your ability, and you really just focus on the task at hand.”

He added, Y”ou don’t really stop and consider the whole big thing- at least I didn’t. But you don’t want to get too swept up in that or get intimidated. You want to just come in, focus on your work and put your head down. And yeah, now is the time to sit back and say, ‘I got to say Rosebud on-screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher film.’ Pretty cool.

Mank, is now available in select theatres and streams beginning on December 4th on Netflic.

So, excited to see Tom in Mank? Comment below.  But first, check out this trailer from the film,
