Here's a little pick-me-up for all the fans reeling over ABC Daytime's ridonkulous decision to phase out the Kish love story on Too Gay to Live One Life to Live. Cable channel BRAVO has announced it is adding a fifth night of programming to include a series executive produced by Beverly Hills, 90210, Melrose Place and Sex and the City creator Darren Starr.The series just so happens to have a writer by the name of SRI RAO attached to co-write it!!!
Entitled I'm Not Myself These Days, the planned hour-long, scripted soap is based on the New York Times Best Selling memoir by OUT magazine columnist Josh Kilmer-Purcell, and tells the story of a seemingly-straight advertising mover and shaker by day who moonlights as a drag queen. Rao, who won the hearts and message board comments of disgruntled soap opera fans during his emotionally-resonant, character-driven stint head writing the second season of SOAPnet's General Hospital: Night Shift, is set to pen the pilot with his writing partner Emily Branden. Now if we can just land Ron Carlivati a similar escape plan deal!
