See the trailer for Soap Life: The Documentary
I have the full DVD and it's really good and very interesting. Soap stars from ATWT, AMC and GH along with writers and producers discuss the rise and fall of the genre we know and love. DVD is coming soon!
From their website:
Once a cornerstone of network television, the American soap opera has fallen on hard times and cancellations.
In the feature-length documentary SOAP LIFE, producers John Grossman and Matthew D’Amato attempt to find out why, with millions of viewers, these icons of American culture are disappearing from the television landscape. SOAP LIFE features interviews with actors, directors, producers, writers, and fans to get their perspective on the changing face of daytime television.
