Zealous soap fans will want to head over to YouTube for the new series This Show Sucks: Truth + Consequences. The soapy project, put together by longtime soap photographer Jim Warren, is a series of vignettes that follows the behind-the-scenes happenings of a fictional daytime drama.
The series stars talented veterans like Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott, The Young and the Restless), Ian Buchanan (ex-Duke Lavery, General Hospital; ex-Dr. James Warwick, The Bold and the Beautiful), Kin Shriner (Scotty Baldwin, GH), Wally Kurth (Ned Quartermain, GH; Justin Kiriakis, Days of our Lives), and Kim Zimmer (ex-Reva Shayne, Guiding Light) alongside other über popular daytime favorites like Cameron Mathison (Drew Cain, GH; ex-Ryan Lavery, All My Children), Kristen Alderson (ex-Kiki Jerome, GH; ex-Starr Manning, One Life to Live), Sonya Eddy (Epiphany Johnson, GH), Haley Pullos (Molly Lansing, GH), and Paul Telfer (Xander Kiriakis, DAYS).
Warren reveals to Soap Opera Digest that he is thrilled about the star power that he managed to gather for This Show Sucks, but he jokes that it wasn't a completely smooth journey.
"I only asked actors who I thought would want to do it, who I thought for sure they'd agree. But, I was wrong," Warren says with a laugh. "I did get a few actors who said they were too busy, which was the nicest way possible of saying, 'Not a chance in hell' -- which I totally respect!"
The photographer continues, "The first person I asked, Ian Buchanan, could not have been more supportive and positive. The second person I mentioned it to was Kin Shriner, who could not have said 'no' any faster -- let's just say, he came crawling back!"
