Tainted Dreams is a web series about the "behind the scenes" drama of the fictitious soap Painted Dreams. Recently finishing up their premiere season on Amazon follows the often funny, often painful, twists and turns in the lives of fictional soap actors on and off-screen.
Creator and Executive Producer, Sonia Blangiardo calls it "a soap within a soap...it's like Grey's Anatomy set in a soap production studio instead of a hospital." Blangiardo has served as a producer/director on five iconic soaps, including All My Children, One Life to Live, As the World Turns, General Hospital, and currently Days of Our Lives so she has lived more than 25 years of soapy dramedy both onscreen and off and knows her subject when it comes to Tainted Dreams.
Tainted Dreams is filled with huge talent, including Alicia Minshew (Angelica), Michael Lowry (Jordan), Austin Peck (Max), Terri Ivens (Kassandra), Walt Willey (Gregory), Kelley Menighan Hensley (Veronica), Grant Aleksander (Adam), Bobbie Eakes (Courtney), Natalia Livingston (Liza), Marnie Schulenburg (Peyton), Nathan Purdee (Ethan), Colleen Zenk (Sofia), James DePaiva (Eddy) and the late Larkin Malloy (Henry). It also taps into the Reality TV world with stars Jessie Godderz (Dylan) of Impact Wrestling and Big Brother fame and Dina Manzo (Alessandra) of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, as well as a very talented Off-Broadway supporting cast, including Anthony Wilkinson (Anthony) of the My Big Gay Italian franchise. Renowned Soap Opera Digest columnist Carolyn Hinsey portrays herself. Lindsay Harrison is the writer.
