Webisoap Weekend Round-Up: Watch The Latest From Empire, Darkside of The Bay, Fumbling Thru The Pieces, The Cavanaughs and Anacostia!By Jamey Giddens on August 31, 2012
We've been slacking on our macking when it comes to promoting all of the great webisoaps out there. Heck, we've been too busy following all the behind-the-scenes cray-cray in daytime! This weekend, when you aren't enjoying some of Uncle Joe's barbecue, catch up on webisoaps Empire, Darkside of The Bay, Fumbling Thru The Pieces, The Cavanaughs and Anacostia below! READ MORE
In what may quite possibly be the best episode of Brian Hewson and Gregory Turner's webisoap Empire to date, publishing maven Theodora Crane (Guiding Light's Tina Sloan) painfully recalls her past, while Jake (Toby Levin) learns a shocking secret about his, involving Valerie (As The World Turns' Yvonne Perry).
While I've long been amused by Empire, seeing it as campy, soap spoof fun (Remember that chick chained to the wall?), the webisoap got real this week, which served it in good stead. Bravo to the creators and director Fritz Brekeller (All My Children) ! Watch this week's episode of Empire below.
The mystery of who killed Irving Reed (Harlan J Strauss) has everyone on edge during this week’s episode of Empire. As the impact of Reed’s death ripples throughout the Long Island community, everyone is handling their grief in a different way.
Will the new partnership between detective Cane Haven (Ryan Clardy) and photojournalist Jesse Jordan (Josh Davis) uncover something unexpected? Watch Empire’s latest episode “I Don’t Give A” after the jump!
Webisoap News: Empire is Back, Miss Behave Wraps, The Bay Gets New Executive Producer and Anacostia Sizzles!By Jamey Giddens on July 30, 2012
The webisoap world is exploding with news! Since I've been a bit busy of late—what with all of the breaking news in daytime—I decided to do a quick post detailing the latest from the world of independent soap operas.
Miss Behave stages a royal send off
Susan Bernhardt's glitzy, teen sudser Miss Behave recently wrapped its run, with the introduction of Santa Barbara and As The World Turns alum Terri Garber as the villainous Queen aka mother of heroine Tori (Days of Our Lives' grad Jillian Clare). In addition to Garber and Clare, the final three episodes of Miss Behave feature past and present soapers: Eric Martsolf and Patrika Darbo.
The sudser's three-part finale was helmed by veteran General Hospital director Scott McKinsey (son of the late, great Beverlee McKinsey). Don't get too weepy about the end of Miss Behave. Several of the characters are being spun off for Bernhardt's upcoming webisioap Reign! Watch the three-part Miss Behave finale below.
