Faith Ford (Corky Sherwood, Murphy Brown) Signs as Hope

Kelly Ripa (Hayley, AMC) and co-host of Live with Regis and Kelly, now has a new gig.  It's a pilot for ABC produced by Disney's Touchstone Televison called "Hope and Faith."

Producers for the pilot have just signed 5-time Emmy nominated and 2-time Golden Globe nominated, Faith Ford (Corky Sherwood, Murphy Brown) to star alongside Ripa.Faith Ford

Ford will play Hope, a wife and mother whose world is turned upside down when her sister Faith, played by Ripa, a soap opera diva, comes to stay with Hope and her family after being fired from the cast of a soap opera.

Not quite art imitating life, but really, really close!  We won't know if the pilot is picked up for another few weeks to months, but it certainly sounds like a fun one for soap fans.

Past Blast

Soapers ~ a movement, a philosophy, a new book

When ABC announced the cancellation of long time fan favorite soap operas All My Children and One Life to Live in the spring of 2011, all havoc broke loose. Passionate fans took to the internet, boycotted ABC's advertisers, called for the firing of then ABC Daytime head, Brian Frons (who spearheaded the cancellations), picketed the studio, did anything and everything they possibly could to let the network know just how unhappy they were with the network's decision to dump their continuing stories for the more cost efficient lifestyle and talk shows that were to replace the soaps.

One such loyal fan, Flo DiBona, has chronicled the events of this tumultuous time in her new book, Soapers.
