The Soap Gods have been so kind to us lately. Dallas was reborn. Ratings for the remaining network daytime soaps began to rise again in 2013. All My Children and One Life to Live returned for at least one additional season and thanks to Shonda Rhimes (Who doesn't know she writes soap operas, but that's okay!), the primetime sudser is alive and Scandal-ously well. Now comes even more news of sudsy wonderment and grape-stomping joy.
According to a report from TV Guide Magazine's William Keck, the cast of Falcon Crest has been approached about bringing the classic sudser back to TV! YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK! From the article:
"There's not much I can say, for reasons that go beyond myself," original star William Moses said at the premiere of War Horse at Los Angeles' Pantages Theatre. "Warner Bros. owns the rights and so it's a discussion between them and the writers. There is a pitch and an idea germinating that has some traction. The producers contacted me to ask if I'd be interested, and I said yes. Where it goes on the producing side, I don't know."
