Anyone who has thought we at Daytime Confidential.com have been mean for making fun of the dismal production values at the Procter and Gamble soaps in recent years need only watch the first episode of Steamboat to see the actors obviously feel the same way we do! From the hilarious minds of Michael O'Leary (ex-Rick, Guiding Light) and Scott Bryce (ex-Craig, As The World Turns), Steamboat tells the story of a dead last sudser, desperately trying to stay on the air amid budget cuts so severe they have to move into a rundown theater to tape the series in Peapack, New Jersey.
I wonder who Kim Zimmer is channeling for her performance as the soap's control freak show runner? I'll bet you a New Yorkmagazine cover I know the muse! Me likes. Hell, if you can't laugh, you'll cry. See the Steamboat Season One teaser below.
