Over a dozen of your favorite soap stars are set to reunite on cable. No, SOAPnet didn't all of the sudden remember its name. Investigation Discovery is launching a new block of programming aimed at lapsed soap opera lovers!  Smartly christened "Days of Our Knives", the cabler's new daytime block will feature scandalous offerings hosted by soapers Susan Lucci, Kim Zimmer, Robert Newman, Drake Hogestyn and more!
"After the cancellation of All My Children and One Life to Live we saw an opening in the marketplace for some of our most popular series," says ID president and general manager Henry Schleiff. "Our tagline at ID is 'Your Guilty Pleasure' and that's a perfect fit for soap viewers, too. Our show titles even sound like they come from soaps — Happily Never After, Dates From Hell, Deadly Women, Wicked Attraction, Who the Bleep Did I Marry?"

Okay, this Schleiff fellow seems like my kinda TV exec! ID will be using their new soap-themed block to promote the upcoming series Deadly Affairs, hosted by La Lucci herself. The series premieres Sept. 8 at 10/9c. Check out ID's full lineup of upcoming programming hosted by soap stars after the jump!
