"Y&R's" Cast Town Hall meeting!

melodyThomasScott.jpgFancast’s Sara A. Bibel reported on a town hall meeting On-Air On-Soaps had heard rumblings of from various sources the day before.   Bibel went on to say in her latest blog and post the following info and perspective:

“Last Friday Sony Pictures Television President Steve Mosko visited the “Y&R”studio for a Town Meeting with the show’s cast, crew, and production office staff.  Mosko runs Sony’s entire television division including primetime, cable and syndication.  Sources say he wanted to speak frankly with employees about the show’s recent two year renewal by CBS.  The new contract cuts the license fee, which means even more budget cuts.  Some production office staff and crew have already had their salaries slashed.  Mosko discussed the current state of the show and  praised the leadership of Maria and Billy Bell before opening up the floor to questions.   The meeting was described by an attendee as a pep talk to let the staff know that their hard work was appreciated.  Of course,  Mosko may hope that future contract negotiations will go more smoothly than Melody Thomas Scott’s now that the cast knows that the show has no money to spare.  CBS daytime president Barbara Bloom did not attend the meeting.  Nor did Eric Braeden, even though he was reportedly on set Friday.

It is, in my opinion, impressive that Mosko met with the staff.  This is a terrible time for the entire entertainment industry.  The prevailing attitude is that anyone with a job should be grateful.  Talking with rank and file employees is unusually respectful behavior for a studio head. Few executives at Mosko’s level take an interest in daytime.  It certainly does not seem like any senior ABC/Disney executives are taking paying any attention to the soap operas that their company produces.”

B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang and Ashley Jones Reveal They Want Brooke & Bridget To Deal with Their Shared Past with Deacon

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) of The Bold and the Beautiful was last Friday’s guest on BOLD Live, and during her interview with B&B supervising producer and host, Casey Kasprzyk, none other than Ashley Jones (Bridget) made a surprise appearance.

Once Jones arrived on the livestream (late in the episode), the discussion turned to wishing that Brooke and Bridget would get the opportunity to deal with the fallout from years ago between mother and daughter.

If fans recall, Bridget was married to Deacon (Sean Kanan), and then he had an affair with Brooke, and then Brooke became pregnant with Hope.

On BOLD Live, Lang said, “There is so much good story there.”  She then added, “I honestly feel Brooke and Bridget never dealt with that. It’s honestly something that was pushed down.”

Ashley shared on the current state of B&B’s episodes: “This is the juiciest the shows been in a long time.”  And on Brooke/Deacon/Bridget, Ashley concurred with Kelly: “Oh. 100% … they never dealt with it.”
