Emmy winner Jane Lynch is taking her skills to the web. The Glee star will take the lead in Dropping The Soap, which will air for ten episodes starting sometime in 2013. Dropping the Soap will feature Lynch as a TV exec who is desperately trying to save her favorite soap from cancellation. This premise is, in some ways, ripped from the headlines, as soaps like One Life To Live have struggled on TV and have turned to the web series format in search of a larger fanbase. A press release notes how " the premise of Dropping the Soap is a microcosm of what’s going on in the web-to-tv and TV-to-web trend we’re seeing today." Lynch also gave her thoughts on the new opportunity: “As the TV soap opera itself circles the drain, I love how our crew of self-centered and desperate actors charge ever forward to save their show from the chopping block. »
