Susan is smart. If "Pine Valley" sucks she wont do it

I mean, if that faith-based Amazon mess she’s in is as bad as the trailer…


I get that she’d a bit more protective of Erica Kane.

Do we know what kind of budget this show would have. Like will it look like a primetime show Or are they gonna go for a soap opera 3 wall set looks.

It would likely be produced like a regular primetime show.

abc upfront may 18th. Might announce stuff for the next season too.

Considering how early in development this seems to be, I think we'd be lucky if the show got a pilot order. It's also possible the script is so amazing they'll go ahead and give a series order based on the script, but I can't see them doing that for a soap reboot in primetime. Most likely we won't hear anything about it though.

It would have to be horrid to not get picked up IMO. It seems like a sure thing and not likely to be needed to be included in the normal pick up stuff. It has a built in audience and is easy to market. 

 

I mean, numerous cast members are reuniting on that E! Reunion Road Trip thing. AMC/Pine Valley is a *name* engrained in Pop Culture.

 

I mean, look at how many stars this show has created. Michael B. Jordan, Amanda Seyfried, Josh Duhamel (Gellar to a lesser extent but still forever engrained in pop culture as Buffy) ... etc. Not to mention Susan Lucci, Cameron, Eva, Kelly, Mark, Debbi, Darnell etc. are all successful and recognized.

 

I have no concerns about this. If it's meant to be, it will be.

 

People watched the 'revivals' on Hulu. If done right this could do very well. Or completely flop. LOL.

Zilch from the ABC upfronts.

Expected since they didn't even order it to pilot.

 

If it's still alive I'm assuming it's going to be re-written.

I was wondering if a reporter might ask a question about it. They inquired about other series in development.

It's not exactly in development since they haven't even ordered it to pilot yet. There's just a script at this point and by all accounts it's not even been sent out to reviewers. I do think this all came out way too early if it's still going ahead.

ABC Passed On Pilots Not Inclusive Enough: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv/tv-news/dana-walden-says-abc-passed-on-pilots-for-not-being-inclusive-enough-4165849/

 


 

Quote

Walden cited an example of receiving a script centered on a white family with the assumption that the diversity would come with the neighbors. “Pass,” she said. “That’s not going to get on the air anymore because that’s not what our audience wants. That’s not a reflection of our audience, and I feel good about the direction we’re moving.”

I mention this article because we know daytime soaps have a history of being lily white and ignoring their large black audience in particular. Hopefully the Pine Valley reboot is serious about featuring the Santos and Hubbard clans in a substantial way because if not, she’s making it clear she’s not going to be picking up non-diverse shows. Four out of the five shows ABC picked up have a majority black cast. AMC has the legacy and enough name minority actors to make this work. We just have to hope they don’t have that daytime mindset of keeping the black people in the background.
