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

Days of our Lives blows into the Windy City

Days of our Lives stars put their hands (literally) in the dirt at the annual Flower and Garden Show at Chicago's famous Navy Pier.

Bryan Dattilo (Lucas) and Matthew Ashford (Jack) were potting flowers. Deidre Hall (Marlena) was talking about her heirloom tomatoes, and then came the meet and greet with the fans, who were lined up by the hundreds on a beautiful sunny day in the Windy City.

Each purchased the sensational book "Days of our Lives:45 years- A Celebration in Photos," which the stars autographed. The book is often referred to as the "coffee table book."
