Two days after SudsvilleTV announced that Michael O'Leary (Rick, GUIDING LIGHT) would be hosting one of the game shows on the new Internet channel, Soaps In Depth has learned that the fan favorite is getting his name built in to the program, too!
SudsvilleTV creator Meg Kelly tells In Depth that O'Leary is so thrilled about the concept of the game show, that she and her partner, Joseph Craig, decided to add his name to the title and it will now be called MICHAEL'S AMAZING SOAP TRIVIA CHALLENGE! "We couldn't be happier that Michael is part of the SudsvilleTV family," says Kelly.
O'Leary adds that the concept of the trivia show is "fresh and fun. Fans will love the fast pace, the surprises and the big cash prizes."
One of the Emmy nominee's favorite aspect to the program is how fans will be included. "I love that they not only get to nominate friends and family to be contestants, but that they get to review and vote on the selected submissions," he says. "Daytime fans are the best and I'm excited to be connecting with them again. They gave me a great job for years and a lot of joy. When I meet them, they often say, "Oh my God, you've been a part of my family.' I get it, because they've been a part of mine."
