This guy read my mind (one of the posters in the article)

"Pure genius!! And super topical, since in 2011, the hottest, coolest, trendiest, genre on television right now... is daytime soaps? I'm pretty sure somebody said "let's remake soapdish" in a pitch meeting just to get a laugh as an icebreaker, and some executive said "brilliant!"

Do they think this will make money? Better get a good ass cast if so.
