Soaps Returning To Production


Recommended Posts

If they are coming back with the same old, same old they are making a huge mistake. If the soaps don't come back with heavy promo and a true "season premiere" then I truly think they will fail. Then again, DAYS tried the time jump and that was a fail.

Im wondering if soaps will do short arcs with fewer characters. Film  the entire arcs, one at a time with the actors and then edit them into episodes. This way there are not many actors on set at one time

I hope not. If I were these shows. Id write stories with smallwe cast of characters. An A, B, C  story and alternate filming so not a lot of actors are on set

I wonder if they’re aiming at trying to do episodes five days in a row again, I think that would be a mistake. Probably just three eps a week would suffice and cut out a lot of dreck and not waste any valuable time just in case the show has to suspend production again down the road.

The classics are better than the crap they were showing. Same goes for YR.

 Ain’t that the truth lol! I really hope the classics won’t go away entirely.

I would for both showa keep Friday as a classic episode. 4 new episodes a week.

That would be workable, seem to work fine back in April. I wonder what script changes Thudley has made, hopefully quarantine has brought a more creative side to him again. I’m quite sure we’ll have Forrester Creations staying afloat thanks to their fashionable masks Steffy designed.

Im not expecting much. Tbh, i guess it depends of how long hes been un unfurloughed. But if all the scripts are ready this week i don't think much has changed except to work around the restrictions.

Sigh...just when B&B started to get it together with picking classics too...

 

I really wonder if they plan to put these on the air ASAP or just bank them? It would be disastrous to have this long hiatus, then come back (maybe with only a few new episodes per week), then go off the air again after a few weeks.  Plus, you'd expect both CBS shows to come back at the same time. If B&B's lead in is repeats of Y&R, their new episodes won't do very well, and the audience will be confused.

Back too fast. They’re just going to just push out the crap scripts they already had ready. Which I can’t blame them for from a business standpoint but creatively? No thanks.

That’s what I was thinking. I don’t blame them either, but at least take some time reconfigure the storyline before filming. Then hype it up that the show is having their big return to air. Better than them just picking up from the same spot where they left off and debuting to a 1.3 rating.

Brad will just blame YR again, like he did under mal when YR got bad ratings. "Oh they are airing repeats as the lead in thats why were doing bad"

The way I read KKL's instagram, I thought she was saying that *she* begins taping Thursday, so I thought she was simply saying she's not taping Mon. Tues. Wed. this week.  Don Diamont said they begin production today. (I don't know, that's simply how I read it).
