9 April 11th, 2014 Corday Productions & All Screens Media Launches Net Soaps The Interactive Soap Opera Website Platform!

After the announcement last week that Corday Productions and Days of our Lives executive producers Ken Corday and Greg Meng, along with All Screens Media Peter Heumiller, and Open Book Productions Crystal Chappell are launching a new interactive  online soap platform, today the official website for the venture is up!

To log on to the website Net Soaps/The Interactive Soap Opera go to www.netsoapstv.com  Once there check out the features and the concept which is Soap Operas … Reimagined! Net Soaps details, “We are developing the next generation of online, interactive, multi-lingual Soap Operas and Novelas. Together with our brand sponsor partners, we’ll build global audience communities and truly engage them with actor casting contests, location and show selection participation, viewer contests and more. In our world, the audience fully participates – and helps craft – the shows they want to watch.”

The site previews the following concepts: an actor/actress online contest:  “Soon we’ll be launching a site where aspiring actors and actresses can select a scene written by our creative team, videotape an audition and upload it to us. They’ll be incented to have their social networks vote for their auditions. Our celebrity judges and audience will also be polled and winners will be cast into roles on our shows. ” A writer/producer online contest: “We’ll also encourage producers and writers to submit reels and show concepts to us. If we like a show concept, we might fund it and test it on our sites.”  Viewer Interactions and contests:  “We’ll be building viewer communities around our shows and allow our viewers to suggest show locations, casting, storyline directions and more. And our brand sponsors will also hold regular contests providing viewers with the chance to win products, services and even walk on roles in our shows.”

Make sure to peruse the entire website and then let us know, what do you think of this new online venture where fans can have a say in the direction of the casting, the story and more? Are you excited to see what new soaps/novelas that end up at this new destination?  Net Soaps/Net Novelas plans to launch later this year.

    I think this is a tremendous idea! Viewer participation is so key. There are many great ideas that people have, and this will give many people the opportunity to shape storylines, characters, etc. Interactive, on line audience participation is the only way to go to stay viable since with all the new technology people want to drive the process and be active not just watch TV passively anymore.

    Maybe it will be a way to bring back actors from ONE LIFE and AMC -
    would be nice after the horrendous fiasco over at Prospect Park and how
    they had absolutely no clue whatsoever as to how to present a soap.
