Well, Victor looks like my dad, so I might have a shot at “another, long-lost” son. I’ll have to look on a map to find where Arcola, IL is! You think this event would take place in the REAL Genoa City, Wisconsin!

OK- I’d like to have lunch and convo with everyone so they could tell me their deepest secrets, and perhaps pass a joint..

And– I would wave to y’all from the screen while wearing a big smile..

WOW!!! This is an amazing marketing plan! I would do almost anything to be part of an episode of Y & R! I started watching this soap when I was a little girl living with my grandmother. We never missed an episode. I watched through my teenage years and remember running home so I would not miss it! As a wife, mother, and working woman I joined a coffee club in order to watch, keep up with, and to discuss the program weekly. Oh my goodness! I guess you could say I have become addicted! Now, semi-retired the Y & R is still part of my daily ritual. Today, with the modern invention of taping my shows, I thoroughly enjoy them in my time. The most amazing thing is that my husband, once irritated by soaps, is now a loyal fan and together we enjoy Y & R. FANTASTIC story lines, great actors/actresses, and bravo to using some very important life lessons (alcoholism, drugs, sexuality, and disabilities (Hope being blind.) I would love to see more life issues being brought forward. The sex and romance is great but you get tired of it after a while. Some marriages do work! We celebrated 45 years in July! Today, modern day to day life stories, should be brought to light and portrayed.
“Yes”, I would love to be at a casting call but they are all out of my available destination. Good marketing! Get more creative with life issues! Only if I could talk to the writing team! WOW!!!

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.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
