Kelli Giddish and Jesse Metcalfe to Star in NBC's Chase

Now this sounds like something to check out. NBC has picked up the Jerry Bruckheimer drama Chase starring former All My Children star Kelli Giddish and Passions eye candy Jesse Metcalfe, according to Broadcasting & Cable. Chase is “a fast-paced drama amid a game of cat-and-mouse as a team of U.S. marshals hunts down America's most dangerous fugitives.”

Since leaving their respective soaps each has spent time in primetime. Metcalfe had a memorable stint on Desperate Housewives as Gaby’s (Eva Longoria) lawn boy lover, while Giddish starred in FOX’s quickly cancelled Past Life.

Tracey Bregman Weighs in on if Y&R is Becoming Passions

In an interview with TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, consummate trooper Tracey Bregman weighs in on whether The Young and the Restless is becoming more and more like Passions.

Lately, there’s been a big shift in tone at Y&R. It’s becoming more and more like Passions.

I think the mysteries are tweaked a little bit more, and there is the fun, fantasy element of Sheila’s twins, Daisy and Ryder, but it’s still based somewhat in the reality of the relationships. We still have the rich, family stories and the romances. Y&R’s success has always been based on the audience’s connection to the characters. Don’t forget it was [Y&R creator] Bill Bell who had Lauren buried alive, and that was a wild, very emotional story. As long as you can keep the character relationships on point, I think the audience will go for the ride. When it gets outlandish on other shows, I find it difficult as a viewer to connect with that. But I don’t think that’s ever been Y&R’s problem.
