TV Show Plot For Soap
Soap was unique in its format: a prime time sitcom making fun of daytime TV soap operas. Each episode followed in a serial manner, just like daytime soaps, and dealt with such melodramatic plots as amnesia, kidnapping, alien abduction, murder, and demonic possession. Heightening the show’s authenticity was the fact that many former soap opera actors comprised the cast. These included Robert Mandan, formerly of Search for Tomorrow, who played Chester Tate; and Donnelly Rhodes, formerly of The Young and the Restless, who played Dutch Leitner.
