GSN's Documentary Series 'ANYTHING TO WIN' Features the Fiercely Competitive World of the Daytime Soap Operas
SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 10 -- On Sunday, April 16,
GSN, the network for games presents ANYTHING TO WIN: SOAP OPERAS WARS. The
signature documentary series, which looks at some of the most interesting
competitions of all time, airs weekly on Sundays from 8:00 - 9:00 PM, EST.
Soap operas are legendary for going to extremes and creating the most
outlandish storylines with their characters, doing anything from afflicting
them with amnesia to bringing them back from the dead. This is never more
evident than during "Sweeps" when, in an effort to boost ratings, soap
producers pull out all the stops. ANYTHING TO WIN gives viewers a glimpse
into this competitive world, focusing specifically on a ground breaking
stunt orchestrated by the producers and writers of "Days of Our Lives"
where they unleashed a serial killer on to the town of Salem and, when it
was all over, half of the beloved cast was dead.
"Soap operas are misunderstood and underappreciated. As any actor who
has joined a soap after doing prime time or films will tell you, there
isn't a more demanding job in the business. Daytime is filled with talented
performers whose fans are fiercely loyal, and storylines that are
complicated and compelling. It's no wonder so many prime time shows draw
talent and plots from the genre," said Stephanie Sloane, Editor of Soap
ANYTHING TO WIN is produced by Creative Differences and Asylum
Entertainment. Erik Nelson, Dave Harding and Frank Sinton serve as
executive producers. Nelson and Harding, the team behind BIG BUCKS: THE
PRESS YOUR LUCK SCANDAL, GSN's first and highly successful documentary
special, have produced more than 400 hours of programming for 12 different
networks. Recently, Nelson also produced his first theatrical documentary:
Werner Herzog's critically acclaimed "Grizzly Man." Asylum Entertainment,
founded in 2000, created the 10-time Emmy nominated series "Beyond the
Glory" and the Emmy nominated series "Fearless."
