Fans of daytime soap operas have recently seen their choice of shows shrinking over the course of the last few years, but a brand new show could be about to launch if the stars of the “Queens Of Drama” get their way. Donna Mills heads up a newly formed an all female production company created by a group of former soap opera stars who are hoping to use their experience to produce a new soap for the TV. The scripted reality show sees the stars creating a fictionalized version of themselves onscreen as they work to write, produce and cast a soap opera they hope will relaunch the genre on the small screen.
There are many soap opera stars who have brought their skills to the “Queens Of Drama” on a regular and guest star basis, including Vanessa Marcil and Crystal Hunt. Crystal Hunt is a popular figure amongst soap opera stars for her roles of “Guiding Light” and “One Life To Live”; last seen on “One Life To Live” as Stacy Morasco, Metacritic reviewers say that Crystal Hunt combines her own personality with that of her former characters for the scripted reality show in a bid to create the highest level of entertainment.
Crystal Hunt could not be further from the characters she has played on U.S. daytime soap operas. Hunt has looked away from her acting career to find further success and has partnered in a pet boutique business in Florida. However, the skills and experience she has developed in the entertainment industry remain her focus. Hunt has been seen in “Magic Mike XXL” and her own project “Talbot County”. Returning to the small screen as a member of the cast of “Queens Of Drama” sees Hunt appear alongside many of the icons of U.S. TV, including Donna Mills and Joan Collins.
“Queens Of Drama” has been one of the most anticipated entrants to the genre of scripted reality TV. One of the bonuses of the show is the high level of skills the cast brings to the show, which are rarely seen on a show in this genre and at the level the female stars of daytime TV have achieved in their careers. The addition of a number of guest stars also acts as something of a nostalgic moment for the viewers of now defunct soap operas. The return to TV of some of the best known faces from 1980s and 90s shows, such as “Dynasty” and “Knot’s Landing” can only add a further layer of excitement to the production of the show.
