We haven’t seen much of Max Ehrich (Fenmore Baldwin, “The Young and the Restless”) lately. Maybe it’s because he’s starring in an upcoming TV series produced by Megyn Kelly.
Oh, the Irony!
Soap Cities recently brought you news disputing soap and media industry reports claiming Kelly’s upcoming NBC news show would replace our beloved, iconic “Days of Our Lives.”
Now a show starring a soap actor is set to debut that she’s a producer on, Tweeted We Love Soaps TV. Maybe Ehrich will reinforce some pro-soap ideas to Kelly. Namely, he might tell her that it would be unwise if her show messed with the one remaining NBC daytime sudser.
Soap fans are no longer sitting around passively as their favorite shows are axed, one after the other. The daytime soap genre is here to stay. Period.
Soap Cities, as a site founded and run by mega-soap fans, is actively involved in the fight to bring back any and all the soaps.
Is “Embeds” Itself a Soap?
Academics, including Soap Cities’ Akbi Khan in a graduate thesis, have argued that essentially all scripted television, even all storytelling, is serial. Reality TV, nighttime dramas, streaming shows (of which “Embeds” is one), and sitcoms all have a serial, i.e., soap, element to them. Even the news relies on a classic soap trope, the cliffhanger!
“Embeds” debuts January 18th on Verizon’s Streaming platform Go90. It tells of a group of reporters embedded with a presidential campaign and the wacky adventures they experience as such, reported Variety. Sounds pretty soapy to us.
