Previously Reported on October 7:
Come next year fans will be able to see a few soap alums in a new docu-series. “Queens of Drama” will follow former daytime and primetime stars who work to create a new primetime drama. Not only will they work all angles of the show, including behind the cameras and pitching ideas, they’ll star in the series with the goal to land a pilot gig by season’s end.
Actresses taking part in the project include “All My Children’s” Lindsay Hartley (ex-Cara, “Days'” ex-Arianna, “Passions'” ex-Theresa), “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Hunter Tylo (ex-Taylor), “General Hospital’s” Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda), Donna Mills (Madeline) and Chrystee Pharris (ex-Katie, “Passions'” ex-Simone) and “One Life to Live’s” Crystal Hunt (ex-Stacy, “Guiding Light’s” ex-Lizzie).
Thinkfactory Media will produce the series, as Adam Reed, Adam Freeman, Aaron Fishman, Tim Laurie and Leslie Greif serve as executive producers on the POP Network, set to launch in 2015. Stay tuned for its premiere date.
