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!!!

General Hospital Receives Honor From Ruderman Family Foundation

General Hospital was one of five television shows that has been named and honored by the Ruderman Family Foundation for their accurate depictions of people with disabilities.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the soap received the recognition for the casting of Maysoon Zayid who portrayed Shilohs’s (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) lawyer, Zahra Amir.

Zayid is an actress and disabilities advocate living with cerebral palsy. In addition, Maysoon is also one of America’s first Muslim women comedians.  Zayid said landing on GH was a “lifelong dream,” after finding it difficult to land roles due to her disability.

Along with GH, the foundation’s seal of authentic representation went to: Netflix’s Tales of the City and Raising Dion, and BBC/HBO’s Years and Years and Audience’s Loudermilk, great company for the ABC daytime drama series to be included with.

Jay Ruderman, president of the Ruderman Family Foundation expressed in a statement. “By giving credit where credit is due in Hollywood, we hope to inspire a broader, longer-term, industry-wide sea change when it comes to authentically casting actors of all abilities.”

In addition, Frank Valentini, executive producer of General Hospital stated: “Our goal has always been to provide stories that are authentic and relatable for our viewers. Having the opportunity to welcome Maysoon Zayid onto the show was exciting for us. She is an incredible talent and was a perfect fit to guest-star as Zahra Amir. It takes all kinds of people to tell a story; especially those that are rich and entertaining enough to resonate with our audience.”

Networks To Preempt Daytime Programming For Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing Coverage

Just as your favorite soaps are kicking into high gear for November sweeps next week, comes the news that due to the House public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump, daytime programming will endure several pre-mptions starting with the first two on Wednesday November 13th and Friday, November 15th.

CBS was the first network to announce their plans for their extensive coverage, and according to the Washington Post all other networks have followed suit.  By this move by the networks it gives the hearing some extra weight and exposure to the American voters and viewing audience.

So far, leading network coverage for CBS will be reportedly anchored by Norah O’Donnell and for ABC George Stephanopoulos.

On Wednesday, the hearings begin at 10am EST, the second is scheduled for Friday beginning at 11am EST.

William Taylor, the U.S. diplomat in the Ukraine, is scheduled to testify Wednesday and on Friday Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, is scheduled to testify.

The networks are expecting big numbers for covering the hearings, as they have in the past for impeachment proceedings and hearings.

No word yet how the soaps plan for you to see the episodes that don’t air at their regularly scheduled times, or if it shifts your soap viewing schedule by several days.
