Kelly Monaco and the Cast of Dirty Soap (c) E!They’ve been killers, ghosts, homeless, prostitutes, prisoners and even murder victims – but it’s off the set of their famous soaps where the real drama begins. Featuring a drop-dead gorgeous ‘who’s who’ of daytime television - Kelly Monaco (Sam, General Hospital), Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe, Days of Our Lives), Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital), Farah Fath (Gigi, One Life To Live), JP Lavoisier (Rex, One Life To Live), and Galen Gering (Rafe, Days of Our Lives) - “Dirty Soap” is a titillating

look at these stunning thespians as they navigate high-profile careers during pivotal moments in the industry and deal with their own real-life drama, which often rivals that of their daytime counterparts. Executive produced by Amber Mazzola's Machete Productions and Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’ Milojo Productions (former soap stars themselves, playing Halley and Mateo on All My Chidren where they met and married), the eight-episode, hour-long series, “Dirty Soap,” premieres September 25 at 10:00PM ET/PT only on E!

The “soap bubble” is a small and intimate world and this cast of characters has played extremely significant roles in each others lives for years. They've been co-stars, best friends, worst enemies, boyfriends, girlfriends, and everything in between. Working together on set and spending time with each other in their down-time, they have formed substantial bonds and created a pseudo "soap family." In the series we see them all begin a new chapter in their lives – some have left the soap world, some are doing film, some are focusing on family, and others are simply trying to determine what would be the best next move. Romantic relationships are tested when one person’s career rockets forward and the others is stuck at “go.” Jealousies arise as actors attempt to jump from one soap to another, and arch rivals must find a way to coexist in this sudsy microcosm without ripping each other to shreds. The softer side of these heartthrobs is also exposed as they interact with their families – one beauty meets her biological father for the very first time and another tearfully sends her brother off to the United States Army flight school. All the while their goals are clear - to grow their careers and to keep their hearts and heads above water in Tinseltown - where it’s so very easy to drown.

“The soap industry is at a defining moment and the time is ripe for a series that goes inside this iconic world and explores the unique bond that these actors share,” said Lisa Berger, President, Entertainment Programming, E! “No one knows the inner-workings of the soap community better than Kelly and Mark, and it is exciting for us to work with them, in addition to some of the reigning kings and queens of soap featured in the series."

"We're very excited to be behind this show for E!, and having met on the soaps we know all too well how much work and dedication it takes," adds Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos.
