Daytime Emmy winner Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott) of The Young and the Restless, and a nominee again this year, will appear in a guest segment on tomorrow’s edition of the Hallmark Channel’s morning show Home & Family hosted by Mark Steines and Cristina Ferrare! 

Home & Family airs weekdays from 10AM to Noon EST. During Mark and Cristina’s chat with Peter, they ask the soap veteran, What is the favorite part of his job? To which Bergman responds: “Love scenes.  Falling in love.”

Bergman goes on to say that Jack has been in love six times on the number one soap, and that he enjoys getting to play that feeling of falling in love for the first time over and over.

“Think about it, how many times have you fallen in love?” Bergman expressed. “Relatively few, given how long we’ve been on this earth. I get to keep revisiting this. The kisses are absolutely free, my wife knows about it, it will lead absolutely nowhere but you get to play with the falling in love thing.”

Watch a clip of Peter expounding on “falling in love” on the soaps in this clip from tomorrow’s appearance on Home & Family.  Then, let us know, who do you think Jack’s best mate over the years has been?

I can only hope he doesn’t fall in love with the new Kelly..
Peter and Cady have zero chem.. (awful to watch/FF)
The new Kelly is a fail ..

—- It is still prissy Dixie ..
(Kelly should not have been recast.. She/Kelly is now Dixie Cooney ..

((comes off as an offspring of Marry Poppins))

Please Jack, walk away !!!

Maybe Kelly was recast because of her tie-in to Stitch and his
SECRET (when will we learn it??) but yes, I think her character
should have left when the original actress Cynthia left.

I remember being so sad back in the day when Terry Lester left Y&R as Jack Abbott. But Peter Bergman made the role his own and one of the most successful recasts ever. And he is a class act, too. Everywhere I see him on TV, he just is top drawer!

I am grateful Jack remains a core character in Genoa City even with so much of the family lost or away. Bergman even rises above any of the misguided or sill storylines in which Jack finds himself. My wish for Jack Abbott is to have his family stabilized, for him to have meaningful relationships with his children, and to find a lasting true love. I would prefer Phyllis. Just saying! Jack is the only one whose love can help her find redemption.

The Abbotts to me always were vastly more interesting than the Newmans. I would like to see more Ashley, more Tracy, resolution of story with Dina. It is regretful John was killed off. Y&R was so strong in the day when the Abbott breakfasts were routine. Remembrring when…

Thank You !

“…The Abbotts to me always were vastly more interesting than the Newmans.”

excellent “summation” like the term : vastly : simply was no comparison

synonyms : measureless, boundless, gigantic, colossal, stupendous.

Thats OUR Abbotts

it would seem like Just Jack is forever, relegated to Mr. single

reason why I just love when… Ashley and Traci – MUST – make, guest appearances

I hope Y&R seriously consider Robin Christopher, for Phyllis… i think she has it in her to be as dynamic, sultry, daring, no holds barred Woman… for Jack

I can’t think of any other family in daytime… who could ever best… the Abbott Breakfasts

Lol, my older sister use to tell me the same thing aboutt the abbotts back in the day.. Jack & those cinnamon rolls’

I think NuKelly is improving just a tad from her first scenes.
But her slumping to the floor scene when Jack realized it’s
too soon for a romantic romp, was rather odd. I get that she
looked forward to it, and it represented her moving on from
sadness in her life…but gosh, was she really THAT devastated?
Not to mention, Jack wasn’t breaking off any future romp..
just said he wasnt ready YET. Seemed a bit over the top
acting on her part.

I know right??? How weird was that.. Jack was fair and stright up about what the feelings and what the situation was and she took it like a 16 year old not being allowed to go to prom or something :s

I adore PB but the best on screen chemistry he had was when he played Dr. Cliff Warner on AMC with the lovely Taylor Miller/Nina. They had it in spades.

AMC was at its best during the years of Palmer, Daisy, Cliff, Nina, Liza, Tad, Angie, Jessie, Greg, Jenny…and so on…the 80s was AMCs best decade!!!

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

Newsom has said modifications to regional guidance would be allowed so long as there are attestations at the county level that there are adequate plans in place should a rise in COVID cases be seen again.   As of May 18, when L.A. filed its attestation, the county had a stable or declining number of patients hospitalized for COVID-19.   However, there has been an uptick in cases as of Friday which could effect the production restart in Hollywood as well as the noted uptick in hospitalizations; all of which are measures in the protocol guidelines that need to be on the decline for things to move forward.

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.
