Last year we posted the first season of Misguided, which at the time was raising funds for Season 2. Now the first two episodes of the follow-up have been released, and you can take a look at them below.
The five-part series Season 2, created by and starring, Paul Gosselin, pairs soap opera legends, Jean Carol (Nadine, Guiding Light) and Jacklyn Zeman (Bobbie, General Hospital) in its opening episode. Both Carol and Zeman were nominated alongside each other at the 1995 Daytime Emmy Awards and over two decades later the soap stars have reunited in this online comedy, soap opera spoof.
Misguided follows the adventures of Paul, a soap opera fan with aspirations of one day appearing on his favorite daytime drama, Guiding Light. Unfortunately with the cancellation of GL, his dream seemed to come to an end, until his character meets ‘Jeva Jones’ played by Jean Carol, who submits him for a role in a CBS Daytime reboot of Guiding Light. In the first episode of Misguided: Part II, Jacklyn Zeman arrives as Paul’s soap opera loving mother, ‘Mo,’ who interrupts Paul while he’s in bed with his arch nemesis, ‘Bauer McBride,’ portrayed by Christopher Robert Smith.
“Never in my wildest dreams could I imagine sitting on my couch, wearing short shorts, and acting alongside daytime royalty, Jacklyn Zeman,” said Gosselin, “it’s been an amazing experience.”
The final three episodes of show’s second outing will be released on YouTube over the next couple of weeks.
