I'm stunned that not only a new soap is being developed, but that it's being developed for broadcast. I assumed the next time we'd see a new soap would be for an online streamer!

On one hand, it hasn't been ordered yet, but on the other hand would they bother putting it into development if they weren't viewing this as a sure thing to go to broadcast?

I'll believe it when it exists onscreen, but this doesn't seem to be the same thing as that fly-by-night Pine Valley effort a few years ago which I was always skeptical about. I think the only thing keeping that in the mix for a year or two was the star power of Kelly and SMG.

I still don't think broadcast has a long-term future for soaps, but I do think GL in particular could do well on streaming in a tweaked format focusing on the families and suburban aesthetic more, in the ways Nancy Curlee, etc. so eloquently laid out. But I and others have laid out our convoluted ideas for those revamps many times before. GL and AMC sort of epitomize that Americana tapestry to me.
