The Young and the Restless, Lee Phillip Bell, issued her own remembrances on the passing of the legendary Jeanne Cooper, who passed away this past Wednesday and broken so many hearts of fans and her colleagues who have loved seeing her on-screen for 40 years as Katherine Chancellor, the grand dame of Genoa City.

From Lee Phillip Bell:   “JEANNE COOPER: respected colleague, industry icon, woman of passion and grandeur; most important, beloved friend. She was a shining beacon. Her love was unexpendable, and was given freely to all, from fans to great celebrities. She was not jaded by success, nor impressed by wealth and fame. Her crowning glory was her family: her children Corbin, Collin and Caren and her grandchildren, whom she adored, and all of whom adored her in return. Her presence resonated in the lives of all those around her. Through her personal and professional journey, she saved hundreds, possibly thousands, from the depths of alcoholism. She embodied compassion and forgiveness. No daytime icon has ever been more influential in the lives of millions. She will be terribly missed, but her light will shine on forever. May angels guide you on your journey, dear Jeanne. I will love you forever. “

A touching and loving tribute. There will never be another Jeanne Cooper. I sincerely hope YR does not recast the role of Katherine Chancellor. It would be disrespectful to both Ms. Cooper and her fans in my opinion.

She was a beutiful lady inside and out. She was loved by all. She touched alot of lives. I watched her on Y&R for many years. I hav been deeply moved by her wonderful Son, Corbin’s updates of hs Mother’s condition. I lived what he and his family are going through, I remember when I to, would sit by my Parents bed day after day, hour after hour, praying they would get better, not wanting to let them go, but after you come to the realization, that they won’t, you reaize, you can’t be selfish, you need to say goodbye, and let them go. That is why I was so touched, by his statements. He showed his heart to all of us and I thank him for doing so. Anyway, Jeanne will never be forgotten. She played a tough lady on the show, but had so much heart. I loved her scenes with Jill. Her love for her family. Those goodbye scenes with Tucker, so moving. No one could ever replace her. Wil miss her greatly. A wonderful iconic actress.

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.

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.”
