This week soap fans learned some beginning information on a new online destination for some very soapy programming entitled SudsvilleTV.com.
Yesterday, On-Air On-Soaps posted an interview with its creators, former soap scribe Meg Kelly, and entertainment marketing guru Joseph Craig, where they revealed that a new soap opera about two families will be at the new platform’s epicenter, surrounded by16 other ancillary shows.
Today, the soap opera was revealed to be named Year Rounders, and in fact, Kelly is looking at a very familiar daytime soap opera face to be a part of the cast… Daytime Emmy winner Darnell Williams (Jessie Hubbard) formerly of All My Children!
Kelly told On-Air On-Soaps about the prospect of having Williams on SudsvilleTV.com: “There is a really fun connection between myself and Darnell Williams. Back in the day, my husband Tony Rizzoli played Murray the loan shark in Angie (Debbi Morgan) and Jessie’s storyline on AMC. It’s so fun to be talking to Darnell about the possibility of him playing a role on my soap, Year Rounders. He is a wonderful actor and a great guy.”
SudsvilleTV.com launched a sign-up page on Wednesday where fans can anticipate some interesting and exciting updates in the coming months.
