This morning, Days of our Lives brand new streaming digital series, Chad & Abby in Paris made its debut on the DOOL app with the release of the the first three episodes.  The companion series to the long-running NBC soap opera, follows the life of Salem favorite’s Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail (Kate Mansi) and their life away from Salem; since in story, the duo known as “Chabby” moved to Europe with their two children for a fresh start.

Austin Peck is reprising his role in the series as Austin Reed, who also finds himself in Paris and who reconnects with Abigail, while Chad is busy at work at DiMera Enterprises’ Paris office working closely with Juliet; played by newcomer Rachele Schank.

Days of our Lives’  head writer, Ron Carlivati wrote the series and told EW.com, about the exciting new way for fans to see their beloved characters: “I had to come up with a concept, something to enhance the show, connect to the show, but not be totally dependent.”  The head scribe and DAYS co-executive producer and creative director of the DOOL app, Greg Meng had been discussing this project and bringing it to life for over a year

As to if every DAYS character might eventually get their own app series, Carlivati expressed:  “What’s cool is how it opens up a big pool. We can do it for any characters who are not currently on canvas. We can check in with other beloved characters who are not on the broadcast.”  There is already said to be talk of a second season of the Chabby series.

””Ron Carlivati wrote the series and told EW.com, about the exciting new way for fans to see their beloved characters: “I had to come up with a concept, something to enhance the show, connect to the show, but not be totally dependent.””’

That ^^^ says- Young writer Young Ideas..

Ron Carlivati was the Youngest writer when he saved GH, he is still the Youngest writer of the soaps..

I have said, for a very long time, the soaps need Young Writers if the soaps are to be saved..
This is the 21st century not the 70’s-90’s- things are very different in this digital era not the same as the past era.

SAVED GH??

The show still hasn’t recovered from the damage he did! At least the characters of Jason Morgan & Robert Scorpio have been redeemed, but Frodd & Ava are still stinking up the set, and this “Shiloh” dragonshit…. ReRon didn’t write it, but he might as well have.

And as for what he’s done with Days… more stupid masks, more idiotic plots & writing out of character, more stupid DID storylines, and yet another serial killer written as a romantic lead.

I’m the Devil, so I understand tormenting people, but ReRon is tormenting the people who ultimately pay his salary. That’s not a good business plan.

hi Satan ..
GH was on the chopping block..
It was deemed to be canceled, the numbers were very very low..
RC came in got the numbers up hitting 3 million= a save.. GH is still with us.

Like him or not he did a great job..

GH has had other writers since 2012 and none have done better.. It’s been their turns to shine and they’ve failed.
Every single head writer had the opportunity to change any character in whatever they liked.

I liked RC- he is still my favorite writer 😉
I’d welcome him back to GH ..

umm You’re quite meek/nice for being Santan.LOL!!

Spot on, Satan! The ReRon era instituted the near-total deconstruction of the once-great soap that was GH…Save for that deliciously colorful mother-daughter duo from “h#!!,” Britt and Dr. O., his characters were absolutely God-awful and added nothing of any value to the show. I only wish that when he left Port Charles, he would have packed up his dubious creations and taken them to Salem with him, and yes, that includes Ava, Frodd and Nina (both 1.0 and 2.0!!!)

Except Ron C. did not come up with this concept. British soaps have done similar web-based spinoffs and limited-run series for years.

So these mini episodes finally made it to HellCable…. and if you haven’t seen them yet, don’t waste your time.

the whole dumb idea is apparently to break up Chad & Abby again already.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.
