New Nelson Aspen, Janet Iacobuzio Projects in the Works

Nelson Aspen tweeted a photo of Janet Iacobuzio
on Wednesday captioned, "Toasting a new TV project."
It looks like entertainment reporter and We Love Soaps contributor Nelson Aspen has a new mysterious, top secret series in the works with writer Janet Iacobuzio, recently the subject of our "Catching Up" interview series. Aspen and Iacobuzio go way back to the glory days of Procter & Gamble soap operas so I asked him if this upcoming project has a soapie edge. He would only say, in true continuing drama style, to "STAY TUNED!"

With their history, and based on the recent fascinating interview, there may not be a better team around to breathe new life into the genre.

"We not only know where all the bodies are buried," Aspen teased, "we have their phone numbers!"
