Prime time drama has taken something of a back seat in recent years after the rise of the reality TV genre and the continued success of the many different forms of sitcom. Into the void left by the fall of the daytime and prime time soap opera genre the “Queens Of Drama” have stepped in their bid to create a brand new soap opera based upon the needs of the modern viewer; the aim of the all female cast of this scripted reality TV show is to create a pilot for the drama they hope to produce, and complete a deal for the drama to be broadcast by a major U.S. network.
The “Queens Of Drama” offers something of a different view of the reality TV genre through the fact the female cast use much of the personalities of their famous characters in soap opera during their appearances in the show. “Queens Of Drama” offers a glimpse into both the real life of major stars like Crystal Hunt, and the persona of the character of Stacy Morasco she became famous for. Hunt has a long history in the soap opera genre from her youth as Lizzie Spaulding in “Guiding Light”, and her iconic role in “One Life To Live”.
Crystal Hunt is one of the most famous stars of the soap opera genre to have appeared in the 1990s and early 21st century; however, Crystal Hunt has not limited herself to only appearing in soap opera and TV shows, instead she has looked to stretch herself with film roles. In recent years, the work completed by Crystal Hunt as an actress has seen her appear in a number of major movies, including “Magic Mike: XXL”. Hunt has also looked to extend her reach into a number of business opportunities, including her role as owner of a pet boutique in Clearwater, Florida.
The “Queens Of Drama” have revealed the skills of many of the cast both in front of the camera and behind it. One of those who has stepped to the fore is former “Knot’s Landing” star Donna Mills who has taken a leadership role in the newly formed production company. Much like the work of Crystal Hunt on the “Queens Of Drama”, the persona shared by Donna Mills is a version of herself merged with her character from “Knot’s Landing”; the continued success of the “Queens Of Drama” looks assured as more icons of the soap opera genre continue to join the cast of the show.
