Stars Preview Upcoming Season of The Bay


Emmy-nominated web series The Bay returns January 5. Following the elite denizens of Bay City, The Bay tells the story of socialite Sara Garrett (Mary Beth Evans) and her son Peter (Kristos Andrews). The soap also explores the various sordid affairs and blackmail schemes the Garretts and their acquaintances get mixed up in. 

In anticipation of the premiere, the cast teased what’s ahead. 
 
While Tristan Rogers, who plays police commissioner Lex Martin, said he would like to eventually see a Lex/Sara pairing, it’s not in his character’s immediate future. 
 

Lex hasn’t changed much – he's involved with some family stuff, but he’s mostly concentrating on the police department and police matters. 

Why Casey Moss’ JJ Deveraux is The Best Thing That Ever Happened to DAYS’ Dannifer


Praise the Soap Opera Gods, I finally care about the Dannifer (Shawn Christian and Melissa Reeves) storyline on Days of Our Lives! The NBC soap made a smart decision by bringing back Nadia Bjorlin's deliciously-malevolent Chloe Lane, as a foil for the snore-tastic pairing during the first part of the year. For the summer months, DAYS has ramped things up even more, all thanks to breakout, young adult star Casey Moss as bad seed JJ Deveraux.  

Cute, cocky JJ is saying everything pissed off Jack (Matthew Ashford) and Jennifer fans have been screaming on message boards for months. I absolutely love it when he gives Jennifer and Abigail (Kate Mansi) grief for being able to so readily replace Jack with Daniel. 

I find myself LOL'ing like cray-cray everytime JJ trashes Daniel's car. Maybe I need to go lie down on Dr. Marlena Evans' (Deidre Hall) couch? 

The only thing that could make JJ's twisted reign of pubescent terror better, is if he hooks up with Jennifer's nemesis, Chloe when she returns to town. Come on DAYS, GO THERE!

Let Chloe pluck JJ's flower, while a horrified Jenn walks in on them. It would be soapgasmic. Watch a clip below of JJ in fine form, making Dannifer's lives hell, from Tuesday's episode of DAYS!

Investigation Discovery Goes After Lapsed Soap Fans With “Days of Our Knives” Daytime Block!

 


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!
