A whole new online network aimed specifically toward soap opera fans is coming to the Internet soon, and former Guiding Light star Michael O'Leary s the first soap star attached to the new platform.

Hold on to your hats, daytime fans, because Sudsvilletv.com, a new online network of all-original programming aimed at the soap opera audience, is set to launch this fall.

Soap Opera Digest reports that Daytime Emmy-winning writer Meg Kelly and Joseph Craig have partnered with Conklin-intracom.com, a global tech company, on the venture.

"Conklin-Infracom approached us about a platform they were developing. We thought it was perfect for daytime fans," says Kelly. "These are broadcast quality shows that will star a mix of daytime, primetime and film actors, written by daytime and primetime Emmy winners and produced by an award-winning production team."

Says Craig, "There will be one major new soap opera, 40 total episodes created by Meg and there will also be 16 ancillary series, a combination of reality and game shows and improvised shows, that are aimed at the same audience, including a three-time weekly soap chat show, AM Sudsville."

Additionally, the network plans to cast several familiar soap stars in the New York-based productions, beginning with Guiding Light star Michael O’Leary (ex-Rick Bauer) reports Soaps In Depth. “They’re not webisodes,” Craig points out. "There is a lot of money going behind them. Production quality is going to be like anything you would see on Netflix or Hulu.”
