Queens of Daytime – Jen Ponton Interview!
Hooray for more Jen Ponton!
She’ll be joining us tonight (April 10th) at 9/8c on TV Talk Radio to discuss her newest endeavor: Queens of Daytime!
What is Queens of Daytime?
Direct from the official press release:
Actress Jen Ponton (Dietland, 30 Rock) and Emmy-winner Louise Shaffer (Ryan’s Hope, Search For Tomorrow) have teamed up to pen Queens of Daytime, a newly-released short film that serves as showcase for their proposed television series.
Queens of Daytime takes place in 1958, in the shiny-new world of television. While men like Milton Berle and Sid Caesar dominated primetime programming, live soap operas filled the airwaves during the daytime. Soaps were then owned and operated by detergent companies, who hired their own writers, directors and producers. As detergent companies worked to increase their profit margins, they saved money by hiring women to write and produce their shows. This created a little-known professional oasis for women at a time when keeping house was the rule.
