The witchcraft-filled soap opera 'Passions' was supposed to end this fall on NBC, but now it looks like it will get a second life. However, in a deal that the Peacock is working on, life in the town of Harmony will only be seen on DirecTV
It won't be "same as it ever was", though. It's expected that the budget will be greatly decreased to accommodate the new format. As such, it will probably only air four times a week and there will probably be a reduction in the cast.
But think of the blipvert they could make to promote the fact that 'Passions' is now on DirecTV, following in the footsteps of the ads using 'Entourage', the 'Star Trek' films, 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' and 'Back To The Future' (which both have a Toobworld existence).
Just so long as they kept Tabitha Lennox in Harmony. Not that I watch the soap, but it really isn't even worth the effort if that witch isn't on board the project!
Just sayin', is all....
