Girl power reigns supreme as six former daytime and primetime soap stars take control of their careers to produce and star in a new serialized drama, in the series premiere of Queens of Drama on Pop, Sunday, April 26, at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT, immediately following the network’s exclusive live broadcast of the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

Following its premiere, Queens of Drama will begin airing in its regularly scheduled time slot on Wednesdays, (8:00-8:30 p.m. ET/PT) starting April 29.

Queens of Drama features a powerful, all-star cast of soap’s leading ladies, while tapping into the sensibility of female empowerment, taking charge and having it all,” said Paul Adler, Senior Vice President, Programming, Pop. “We’re excited to give fans a new perspective of these women with a reality series that debuts immediately following Pop’s exclusive live broadcast of the Daytime Emmys.”

Queens of Drama is a 10 episode series that features an all-female cast working in front of and behind the cameras as they develop, pitch, and produce a new steamy series with the goal of landing a pilot deal by the end of the season. The all-star cast includes Lindsay Hartley (All My Children, Days Of Our Lives), Crystal Hunt (Guiding Light, One Life To Live), Vanessa Marcil (Las Vegas, General Hospital), Chrystee Pharris (Passions, General Hospital) and Hunter Tylo (The Bold and The Beautiful) with special appearances by Donna Mills (Knots Landing, Melrose Place).

Based on the first three episodes, the show is fun, entertaining, and there's plenty of drama. Look for our full review in April.

Queens of Drama is produced by ThinkFactory Media, with Adam Reed, Adam Freeman, Aaron Fishman, Tim Laurie, and Leslie Greif, serving as Executive Producers.
