First Look at "The Chew" and "The Revolution"
Soap Opera Network has a peek at the shows replacing our beloved soaps, AMC and OLTL.
The promos and materials for the shows will be rolled out to ad execs on May 17th at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center. THIS WILL be the point that a RALLY OF SOAP FANS is planned from 2-6pm!!! If you are in the NYC area or know someone who is (or you can pay to go) GET THERE!! It will be so important to make this protest as large as possible. A reminder of just one of Mr. Frons statements about the canceling of soaps:
"We are taking this bold step to expand our business because viewers are looking for different types of programming thees days. They are telling us there is room for informative, authentic and fun shows that are relatable, offer a wide variety of opinions and focus on 'real life' takeaways," Brian Frons, President, Daytime, Disney ABC/Television Group, says in a statement. "A perfect example of this is 'The View,' and that factored into our decision. 'The Chew' and 'The Revolution' are in the same vein and will be great additions to the lineup, with 'The View' serving as an ideal foundation from which to launch these programs. They will also provide enormous opportunity for the creation of ancillary businesses and growth."
