You can always count on the talented Michael Muhney (Adam) of The Young and the Restless to tell it like it is and be direct about his thoughts!  Muhney took to Twitter this morning to let his followers, colleagues, and fans know that he is very enthusiastic of the future of Y&R under the new writing regime now led by Josh Griffith after reading their first script!

Here is what Muhney shared:  “Does anyone care to know my critical thoughts after reading the first script of the new order at Y&R airing Oct 12th?  Keep in mind, I’ve only just read the first script with new writing. There is cohesiveness in the overall storytelling. Things seem less disjointed. You can feel momentum build from page 1 to 60. I feel like there will be a lot more attention to characters’ voices, and somehow things feel more intense without any cheap tricks. It seems as though the show is on track. It feels like a strong ensemble. I feel like it is classic old show mixed with classy new energy. I feel like this show, as a whole, and with great respect to its history, could be entering one of its best eras.  And while no writing team can be perfect all the time, based on this script & the ideas for the future, this show will be a beacon for CBS. And if I wasn’t happy about the writing or show’s future, I just wouldn’t say anything at all. But I’m honestly impressed.”

So soapers, are you excited to see what is to come in Genoa City under the Phelps and Griffith regime?  Michael Muhney says its off to a very good start! Weigh-in!

It sounds hopeful!!! I believe in Josh G. I hope Adam and Chelsea will brake up ! I think that had to be the WORST snooze in couple history!!! It was so sickening to have to watch that shmoopie {referencing to a old Seinfeld episode) Shmoopie gag crap!!! Adam is better evil. Loved him with Sharon!!!!

AMEN and AMEN. Horray for Adam and Sharon. I wouldn’t mind Adam having a nice side, but be hard core when you have to. Adam and Victor both can play that tough skin role exceedingly well.

Mark my words, JFP will do something to screw it up eventually as a ratings ploy. Kill off beloved vets (Kay?) and go from Corp to mob focused!

Adam loves Sharon it was no way believable he would ever love anyone else. Chelsea is a con and gives her baby away . No one will ever except her. maybe if the actress could act.

Thanks but I will have to wait and see..I have been waiting for a very long time for a story of depth and love for Likey Lauren and Michael..Christian LeBlanc a three time emmy winner and Tracey Bregamn a 1 time Emmy winner have been reduced to props for the Newmans and it has gotten to the point that I gave up and only watch when Michael, Lauren or both are on..I can no longer tolerate what they have done to my couple..Whenever CLB and TEB have had a chance to shine..they have rocked the show..If Josh or Jill continue to use them as props for the others I am completely done with Y and R..

I’m also a fan of Chelsea and Adam. They’re very refreshing. They can be the town’s bad couple.

I never liked Chelsea It was never believable that they went from her a con raping men and drugging them her entire life stealing the money and left Billy to rot in jail. She blamed her mother but she is an adult. She gave away her child with a blink of an eye! It is disgusting. Most hate her for that the most. She is fake and sickening NO CHEMISTRY sorry! Re cast her she can’t act just giggle and homley looking Adam needs to be with someone his mother would aprove of like Sharon

I do hope you are right, Michael M. In recent years, I have not enjoyed my Y&R as much as I once did. The Newman, Abbott, and Wililams families have been so tossed and torn, the relationships and characters no longer seem defined or make sense. Thanks you for the tease and we the fans, with you and your fellow castmates, hope for better days in Genoa City. There were once times, Y&R was so bright on my radar. I cannot say that right now.

He tweeted yesterday he was leaving the show. Why? Besides he said he was offered a lead role in another show.

Here’s hoping for a way better TY&TR than has been seen in the last few years.

I agree I liked him much better being bad. I do not like this Chelsea person She and Adam are boring. I never liked her and think the acting is really bad. I also loved Adam how he was with Sharon. Much better fit. Although I loved Sharon and Nick and pray Phyllis is off the show soon . I’m so sick of that character and her issues she is on this show so much It’s horrible. They better make Phyllis go to Jail! I wish we find out that Snotty Summer is NOT Nicks baby. Poor Jack I love him. I hope Nikki and Victor act like to grandparents already not a high school wanna be.

I hope Adam’s first episode is to kick the snot out of Victor & Tucker for the taking advantage of Crazy Sharon then also help his brother Nick find a pair!!!

Sharon seems like the most normal person on the show right now!!! If you go through each character one by one think of there history with crimes sleeping around and cheating its horrific. The characters are all so mean and nasty. The ONLY two people I LOVE is Sharon and Billy and most of the time Jack. That’s it!!!

You will love this now I hear through a source he is tweeting he may get a lead in a prime time show! Maybe he should just zip it or has JFP started to clean house. LOL

LOVE SHADAM> I don’t like Chelsea at all. They need a actress we can repect and love. She is a criminal who I can not forgive. I like Adam bad and with Sharon.

I hope they make Adam back to the way he was. The Character has been boring with the pairing of this Chelsea. I loved him with Sharon. They had real chemistry.

I don’t like boring fake Chelsea either. she over acts and giggles like a baby

I’m THRILLED about the new writing team (because honestly, a monkey in a top hat would do a better job than the hack Maria Areana Bell was) and I am so happy that Michael, one of the most vocal and passionate actors, is enthusiastic over the writing changes being made thus far. I, however, hope that the new writers take into consideration Chelsea and Adam’s baby, as well as the popular pairing of ‘Chadam’ itself. I would love to see them keep them together, but make them more of a Bonnie & Clyde duo with their naughty personality traits shining through. As long as Adam isn’t put back with Sharon- I’m happy 🙂

Chelsea should never have children after thowing hers away gross

I LOVED SHARON WITH ADAM!!!!

Chelsea didn’t throw her baby away any more than Sharon threw Cassie away. She gave her baby to his FATHER and his wife who she knew would be able to give him a better life than she could at that moment in time. That’s not called being gross; that’s called being selfless.

If its all Newman’s Im less than thrilled and will be leaving this far behind.

A lot of twitters seem to be totally self serving lately, including that from an actor coming and going sort of demanding stories. Its becoming not about story telling but about egos and I do not enjoy egos

Agree again JT let’s also put Michelle Stafford on the back burner no reflection on the actress but it is overkill!!!

Muhney’s tweets just solidify my original joy for Phelp’s arrival and Griffith’s return. My only hope is that Adam doesn’t turn evil again, and that he and Chelsea stay together! Michael and Melissa have amazing on-screen chemistry and their pairing is one of my faves on the show.

Plus, I hope they reunite Nikki and Jack back together. Jikki topples over Niktor any day!

Im excited but still a little cautious. I hope that nothing happens to the character of Victor. He is what tunes me into y&r since 1987.

Loved SHADAM; cannot stomach the CL/AN pairing so hopefully the new regime will fix that dastardly mistake MAB made in breaking the amazing chemistry MM and SC shared up. Looking fwd to the cohesiveness as well. So many plot points were just dropped and fans get tired of it.

It will be hard to be worse than MAB. She married Victor and Sharon, it will be hard to top that.

How could Adam have stopped loving sharon, It is very difficult to believe it, I’m still a big fan of the YR but, God put them back together.

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.

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.”
