Former Daytime Stars Represent at TV Upfronts
The broadcast networks rolled out their new fall schedules and debuted the trailers they hope will get viewers excited about their upcoming new shows. Once again, a large number of current and former daytime stars appeared on the red carpet. Supernatural’s Jensen Ackels (ex-Eric Brady, Days of Our Lives) and Jared Padalecki (pictured above) appeared at The CW’s upfront presentation, along with a number of familiar faces to daytime viewers.
Another World alum Anne Heche (ex-Vicky, Another World) is returning to primetime this fall in the new NBC series Save Me, but she isn’t the only one. Former Passions star Justin Harltey, who starred in The CW’s Smallville, is returning to the netlet in the new medical drama Emily Owen, M.D..
