Gregory, Darnell Williams, Kristen Alderson, Jessica Leccia, and more.

As to being at the epicenter of Melange, Morgan Fairchild said on her latest soapy role: “I am so glad to be back wreaking havoc!”

In its log-lines for the show – Mélange emulates the grand storytelling flair of 80’s primetime decadent dramas that pitted good vs. evil but in a contemporary, fast-paced style.  It explores modern themes of sexuality, immigration, addiction, power, and inclusion.  The pilot episode was directed by Emmy Award winner Gary Donatelli (One Life to Live) and Tony Award winning producer Tim Kashani (American In Paris, Memphis).

I enjoyed it, but I’ll be surprised if more episodes are filmed. This was filmed in 2018 (per IMDB). Seems odd that 2 years later they’d be able to start up again, pandemic or not.
