DAYS OF OUR LIVES 45: A Celebration in Pictures
A Celebration in Photos is a beautiful hardcover coffee table book that traces the history of the show and its wonderfully rich families from the inception of the series to the present… and beyond. It is a rare glimpse of over 500 behind-the-scenes photos of one of America's most beloved television shows. Using never-before-seen images of cast, crew, sets, and styling, the proverbial “fourth wall” is broken for an extraordinary look inside the studio and into the lives of the stars of the longest-running scripted program in NBC’s history.

Simultaneous with the book’s launch is the increased focus on their new social media platform, which includes interactive video chats with cast members, never-before-seen photos and footage, promotions, and contests. This will become a place for fans to connect to their favorite cast members through mediums like Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook. The site will stream events live, such as signings for the new book, fan events, and other promotional events. It will also offer interactive polls and events to allow fans to get insider view, express comments and feel connected to the show and its cast. Fans can log into and immediately connect to the Facebook, Twitter, Ustream and Youtube channels!

The fifth and final season of FNL kicks off next Wednesday on DirecTV.

  1. Roger & Damon,

    Do you plan to cover the new horror serial, "The Walking Dead" on AMC?

    I know this is off topic but the show is a new serial.

    Also, I haven't seen much coverage of the Good Wife or Caprica. Both are excellent night time soaps. I'd encourage viewers to catch up on Caprica on Hulu. The writing, acting, and cinematography are incredible, providing a film-like experience.
