ABC and People present a two-hour celebration of daytime serials in “The Story of Soaps” tonight at 9.
Soaps rarely get any attention in prime time, so this special is definitely worth checking out.
The documentary features such celebrities as Carol Burnett, Bryan Cranston (who got his break on “Loving”) and Jon Hamm dishing on the genre.
The network promises the special will explore how female creators shifted from radio to television and how their work changed pop culture.
You can also probably expect to see a fair share of catfights, crying, catfights, people dying, catfights, people coming back from the dead, and catfights.
There’s so much more to daytime than its excesses.
