“Passions” premiered on NBC on July 5, 1999 and ran until September 7, 2007. DirecTV-exclusive The 101 Network ran the soap for bit longer from September 17, 2007 to August 7, 2008. Created by screenwriter James E. Reilly, storylines featured supernatural elements, including Harmony’s witch Tabitha Lenox (Juliet Mills) and her doll-come-to life Timmy (Josh Ryan Evans), and followed the lives of such multi-racial core families as the Russells, Cranes, Bennetts, and Lopez-Fitzgeralds. Various stars of the soap went on to appear in other daytime roles, including Eric Martsolf, Lindsay Hartley and Galen Gering, to name a few, who all took on roles on “Days of our Lives.”
