Afternoon Delight!

Emily Giannozio has finished filming a role in upcoming Hallmark film, A Little Daytime Drama, AKA: ‘Love In The Afternoon‘.

Jen Lilley (“Days of Our Lives”) and Ryan Paevey (“General Hospital”) star in “A Little Daytime Drama”, a new, original movie premiering Saturday, August 21 (9 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s annual “Summer Nights” programming event. Linda Dano (“Another World”) also stars.

Maggie (Lilley) is the head writer on a daytime soap drama whose declining ratings leave it in danger of being cancelled. Alice (Dano), the creator and producer of the show, wants to retire and hopes to pass the baton to Maggie. Wanting to boost ratings and save the show, Alice plans to bring back fan-favorite actor Darin (Paevey)…who also happens to be Maggie’s ex-boyfriend. When Darin exited the show to star in an ill-fated play, their relationship ended on a sour note, so Maggie wrote out his character. Now, she must convince Darin to return. Will they be able to set aside their old, hurt feelings and work together to save the show, and their careers, in the process?

A Little Daytime Drama” is from Two 4 The Money Media Inc. Kim Arnott and Ivan Hayden are executive producers. John Prince is producer. Matthew Willis is associate producer. Heather Hawthorne-Doyle directed from a script by Sandra Berg and Judith Berg.

This movie reunites Harvest Love co-stars, Jen Lilley (Days Of Our Lives, USS Christmas), and Ryan Paevey (General Hospital, Unleashing Mr. Darcy).

In addition, soap superstar, Linda Dano (Another World, Chronicle Mysteries) also stars in A Little Daytime Drama. Rounding out the cast is Serge Houde, Brittany Mitchell, Latonya Williams and Jake Foy.

Originally, A Little Daytime Drama was entitled ‘Love In The Afternoon’. However, Hallmark changed that. The phrase “Love In The Afternoon” was originally used as ABC’s campaign slogan between 1975-1985, for shows like All My Children, One Life To Live, and General Hospital.

An Enlightening Performance

Arthur Corber has completed filming a role in episode #101 of upcoming series ‘Gaslight‘.
 
New Regency TV series thriller Gaslight, which is being adapted from the QCode podcast of the same name by Miles Joris-Peyrafitte.
 
Jessica Rothe (Happy Death Day), Kelsey Asbille (Yellowstone, Fargo), are set to star, Marc Rissmann (Game of Thrones, The Man in the High Castle) and Will Dalton (Loving, Sergio) will also star.

In Gaslight, everyone thought Danny (Rothe) had gone missing. Towards the end of senior year she vanished one night leaving everyone confused and devastated…including her closest friend in the world Becca (Asbille). The series will pick up years later when late one night while Becca, her new husband and their baby son are having dinner, they get a visitor. It’s Danny. Inexplicably after all these years of no contact or explanation she’s returned and looking to reconnect. As we learn more about her and her boyfriend Ben, we soon come to realize there’s something darker and more sinister at play.

The podcast itself boasted an impressive cast. Asbille will reprise her role as Becca, but Chloë Grace Moretz originally voiced Danny. 

All episodes of Gaslight‘s first season will be written and directed by Joris-Peyrafitte, who is series creator, executive producer and writer. 

In 2016, Joris-Peyrafitte became one of the youngest winners at the Sundance Film Festival when As You Are won the Dramatic Special Jury Award. Shortly after, he directed Dreamland, starring Margot Robbie, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.

John Cena stars as the title character, reprising his role from The Suicide SquadThe character that debuted in the comic books in 1966 has been described as a f***ed up superhero and is a rogue vigilante that wants peace at all cost, even if that cost is killing countless “men, women, and children”. Gunn wrote the series while he was completing work on the film during the COVID-19 pandemic. HBO Max ordered it straight-to-series in September 2020, with Gunn also directing several episodes.

An ‘Edgy’ Role For Luis

Luis Javier has finished filming a role in upcoming tv series, ‘The Edge of Sleep’.

The Edge of Sleep, is a TV series based on his QCode podcast of the same name created by Chozen writers Jake Emanuel and Willie Block.

It was announced in April 2021 that popular YouTuber Mark Fischbach, aka Markiplier, is set to star in, and executive produce   In addition to Markiplier, who will reprise his role from the original podcast, Lio Tipton (Crazy, Stupid, Love) and Eve Harlow (Next) will also star. The Revenant (2015) producer New Regency will serve as the studio and independently finance the under-the-radar project. The announcement said filming will begin in May 2021 in Kamloops, British Columbia.

The post-apocalyptic mystery-thriller will follow a night watchman who finishes his shift at work to discover that everyone in the world who went to sleep the previous night has died. He and a band of survivors must stay awake and uncover the secret of the terrifying global epidemic before they too fall asleep.

Fischbach, Emanuel, and Block will all serve as executive producers on the series with Corey Adams directing.

The Edge of Sleep joins a number of scripted podcasts that have gone into development as TV series, and with Markiplier’s built-in audience from YouTube, it could very well see outstanding viewing numbers depending on where it lands. This marks the first time the gamer and online influencer has stepped into a scripted acting role for television. His choose-your-own-adventure A Heist with Markiplier garnered millions of views upon its release, and his channel has over 15 billion views globally.
