They previously ruled the small screen with their portrayals of some powerful women in both daytime and primetime soap operas, and now, the actresses behind some of the most memorable roles on television are teaming up for a new reality series project, Queens of Drama.
The show, which will feature Lindsay Hartley (All My Children, Days of Our Lives), Crystal Hunt (Guiding Light, One Life To Live), Vanessa Marcil (Las Vegas, General Hospital), Chrystee Pharris (Passions, General Hospital), and Hunter Tylo (The Bold and the Beautiful), will officially premiere on Pop April 26 following the channel’s broadcast of the 42nd annual Daytime Emmy Awards-and will allow fans to see the women in a way they never have before.
The reality series will feature the women as they develop, pitch and produce a new drama series, with the goal of landing a pilot deal before their 10 episodes are up.
The show is also scheduled to have surprise appearances by other female vets as well, including Donna Mills (Knots Landing, Melrose Place) and even Joan Collins (Dynasty).
In a statement about the show, Pop’s Senior Vice President of Programming, Paul Adler, said the show was not only sure to be a treat for fans of the soap operas these women have starred on, but would also tap into the idea of empowering women to go after the things they desire most.
“Queens of Drama features a powerful, all-star cast of soap’s leading ladies, while tapping into the sensibility of female empowerment, taking charge and having it all,” he said. “We’re excited to give fans a new perspective of these women with a reality series that debuts immediately following Pop’s exclusive live broadcast of the Daytime Emmys.”
