Soap Operas


School (2013) - An unprecedented and astounding event in the history of daytime drama. Manka Bros. Daytime Television is proud to present this epic soap opera based (slightly) on 'War and Peace' by Tolstoy. The show follows children as they start Kindergarten and will follow them until they graduate college.


Sequestered (2008) - Steamy drama about sequestered juries and the regular hotel employees that 'service' them. There are worse places to be on a Wednesday afternoon than poolside at the Hilton Garden Inn.


Aspen Sex Stories (1999) - Night-time drama. Stories of wild sex and adventures amongst the rich and famous in Aspen.


Manhattan Beach (1989) - A cosmopolitan city right on the beach. Feature the cut-throat world of a declining publishing empire. It's high-culture, mini-skirts and barely-there bikinis.

Throngs Of Ecstasy (1983) - Famous novel about land baron witches in Hollywood turned into a daytime drama. [Considered too racy for the time - and, unfortunately, even too racy for home video.]


Water + Still + Run + Deep (1973) - The O'Reillys and the Billingtons don't get along. Never have. Never will.


67th and Park Avenue (1962) - The only soap opera that dared to show wealthy New Yorkers sipping martinis, shopping and going to the latest Broadway show openings.


Ivory Tower (1958) - Sponsored by Ivory Soap. Story of the Callahans and their struggles to save their publishing empire while still maintaining clean, fresh smelling skin.
