As the World Turns
Okay, let's try this again! Apparently there was a slight communication hiccup with the rollout, but I just learned from Procter and Gamble Productions' rep the company has in fact made a deal with a distributor to sell a 4-Disc As The World Turns DVD collection! Twenty episodes from the cancelled CBS soap are being offered up on four discs entitled "Great Weddings," "Secrets and Scandals," "Oakdale Through The Years" and "Villains and Vixens."
This move comes on the heels of news that classic P&G soaps have been licensed to air abroad. To get your copy of the 4-disc As The World Turns DVD collection call 1(800) 998-5199. The website for the venture, www.soapclassics.com, is scheduled to go live sometime tonight!
With the return of acerbic, comical newspaper man Jack Deveraux (Matt Ashford) to Salem on Days of Our Lives, one of soap's smartest, sexiest pairings, Jack and Jennifer (Melissa Reeves), have been reunited. Well, not quite. There is the matter of Jenn's hairy, hunky new boyfriend Dr. Daniel Jonas (Shawn Christian) for the roving reporter to contend with.
Never fear. Our boy Jack's no stranger to having to use his brains to best another man's brawn when it comes to Jennifer Rose. Remember Emilo Ramirez or Hawk Hawkins? Yeah, neither do we. In celebration of Jack and Jenn getting another shot at a little, ahem, intelligent interaction, let's look back at 10 of daytime's smartest couples.READ MORE

What do you get for helping tank three soap operas in rapid succession? A gig helping finish off a fourth. Soap Opera Network is reporting that former Guiding Light, As The World Turns and All My Children co-head wrier David Kreizman is now writing scripts for General Hospital. I have honestly stopped trying to figure out how the people who run this industry think. Soaps are the only entertainment medium where you're only as good as your last failure.
