Former As the World Turns Anne Sayre with Roger Newcomb (c) Gustavo MonroyOne day last summer yours truely (Soapdom's very own Linda Marshall-Smith) got a call from Broadway Video out of New York City.  They shared that they just negotiated a distribution deal with Procter & Gamble’s Telenext Productions, the producers of soap operas As the World Turns, Guiding Light, Another World, etc.

How exciting!  I knew fans would be more than ecstatic to learn that they would soon be able to get their favorite soaps on DVD, but even as I became privy to what was to happen and was chomping at the bit to share the news with all Soapdom, I was sworn to secrecy.  I can now reveal all!
