Saving the Soap Opera Genre

Until You Walk the Path, You Don’t Know Where it Goes is hosting television critic and Soap Opera Advocate Silas Kain on September 19 at 5 pm eastern

Since the cancellation of Another World, Kain has been actively fighting to save daytime serials. As a fan and businessman, Kain believes his “Soap-osal” will not only revitalize the soap genre, but help local community theatres, the country’s struggling economy and the entertainment industry as a whole. His plan involves holding companies, whose products and services became successful because of the genre, and the networks, whose prime time programming was financially supported for decades, responsible to the genre and the fans, who make their financial success possible. In addition, SAG and AFTRA need to fully support all their members, not just those who work in prime time and film.

His plan proves a fresh approach not only to marketing the programming, but how the industry can revitalize itself by contributing and creating venues on the local level across the country. By reintroducing the Arts into high schools and supporting community theatres, the entertainment industry not only gives back for the decades of support, but it also creates new jobs and inspires people of all ages to believe in their talents.
