If you have been following the Venice the Series website postings, or have been keeping up with Crystal Chappell’s V-Blog, you know that principal shooting has begun for season three of Venice over the past five days!  And from reading CC’s  entry, it looks like lots is happening to create a highly anticipated new season of the Daytime Emmy Award winning web series.

From the looks of it, and as some of you may know from Twitter,  Days of our Lives, Judi Evans  (Adrienne) and Eric Martsolf (Brady) have been added to the cast, and The Bold and the Beautiful’s, Susan Flannery (Stephanie) is back directing some episodes!

Here a few excerpts from the last few days of Chappell’s V-Blog and what she had to say about working again with Jessica Leccia (Ani) and the entire cast!

Tuesday, September 5th – “It was just me and Jessica Leccia. Ani and Gina. I had to approve lunch as I do most days. BBQ ribs were suggested. As much as I love a good rib, Jess and I had two rather heated love scenes later and I didn’t think either of us would feel so sexy after inhaling ribs and beans. It’s a beautiful experience to work with Jess. She’s smart, funny, present and I trust her completely. Loads of good times with these two. ; )”

Hump Day – “Peter Reckell, HBS, Michael Sabatino, Eric Martsolf, Harrison White, Michelle Carter, Adrienne Wilkinson, Judi Evans and Nadia Bjorlin. Party! I mean….we actually shot a party. Hot as Hell but through soaking shirts and moist faces, we made it through! I’m sure pics will be posted..”

More on Venice soon!

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.
