New CBS soap opera in "accelerated development"

(1/4) > >>

Ccook:
The Gates, as it's titled, about an affluent African-American family, is certainly a shoo-in on CBS's daytime roster sometime in the near future. It's speculated that The Talk will get the axe to make room for it. Thoughts?

ooboh:
So long as it doesnít affect The Price Is Right, I donít care for it either way.

jhc2010:
A new daytime TV soap opera? I didnít know that model was even profitable anymore. I donít see this lasting very long.

imhomerjay:
It may not last long. But the CBS/NAACP partnership announced to considerable attention a few years ago has yielded nothing thus far. The pressure is on to show something can get done.

Flerbert419:
The partnership did introduce requirements for BIPOC representation across CBS reality contestants, scripted shows, and writers rooms. More here.
