In a new segment from Planet 360, a weekly news entertainment series airing on the Hallmark Movie Channel, soap stars Crystal Chappell (Venice, The Grove, The Inn), Tristan Rogers (General Hospital) and Martha Madison (The Bay) take part in the second installment of the Soap Dish segment discussing the latest hot topics in the soaps!
Planet 360 is hosted by real life couple, Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo who originally met when they were contestants on American Idol. Associated Television International’s Jim Romanovich serves as one of the series executive producers. As soap fans know, DeGarmo went on to have a role on The Young and the Restless! The topic of conversation on this Soap Dish segment has Chappell, Rogers, and Madison discussing, what they think Agnes Nixon’s involvement and role will be in shaping Prospect Park’s reboot of All My Children and One Life to Live? Crystal admits she is a huge fan of Nixon’s legendary work and asks Tristan and Martha, if they think Prospect Park will put Agnes to work? In which, Martha responds, “If they are smart they will put her to work! She is still there and willing to offer up her expertise. They would be crazy not to take it.”
Tristan Rogers offered up a slightly different perspective: “I don’t know if I would be looking to Agnes to inform the future, and to go to the next stage in daytime. She made a huge contribution to daytime; there is no question about that. Whether that contribution needs to be translated on where they are going in the future, I don’t know. I don’t know whether they need to go back in time and repeat all those storylines and then bring them forward to the later day. I think, “Let’s start with a fresh sheet of paper.”
Chappell responded, “I don’t know how personally involved she will be, but I am glad she is there to see her shows come back to life!”
