New CBS soap opera in "accelerated development"

(1/4) > >>

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?

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

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

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.

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