This pilot season has been good to daytime soap stars and alums. Countless suds thesps are booking new gigs, including One Life to Live alum Renee Elise Goldsberry and Days of Our Lives' Camila Banus.

Goldsberry has been cast in TV Land's etiquette comedy I Shudder, reports Deadline.  The dark laffer centers on Elyot Vionnet (Hamish Linklater), an "an advocate of manners, style and, most important, common decency."

Elyot goes around trying to stop people from behaving badly. When they don't comply it leads to disastrous results. Goldsberry will play Lucy Wainscott, a "lovely, high-spirited, down-to-earth woman." Lucy comes from money but drives an ambulance.

Banus, who recently returned to DAYS as Gabi Hernandez, will play Lucia Villanueva, daughter of a ruthless drug lord, in John Singleton's highly-anticipated FX cocaine drama, Snowfall. Fellow soap alum Billy Magnussen (ex-Casey, As The World Turns) will also appear in the pilot.
