With Jane Lynch executive producing, as well as the Glee star appearing alongside a great list of guest stars – many of which feature in the trailer below – Dropping The Soap certainly looks like it’s got plenty of potential. The show arrives on streaming services on March 7th, including the gay-centric subscription service, Dekkoo.com.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Executive produced by Jane Lynch, “Dropping the Soap” goes behind-the-scenes of the long-running (gawdawful) soap-opera “Collided Lives”. As the program struggles to stay afloat, a new Executive Producer named Olivia Vanderstein (hilarious played by Lynch) shows up to shake things up.
‘While the cast and crew desperately try to hold things together, Julian Drake (the soap’s leading man of “questionable talent and moral compass’) played by co-creator Paul Witten struggles to keep his personal life private and his cast members employed.’
“As the TV soap opera itself circles the drain, I love how our crew of self-centered and desperate actors charge ever forward to save their show from the chopping block,” said Lynch. “The writing is so sharp and witty as the off-screen shenanigans become almost more absurd than the storylines of “Collided Lives.’”
