Doubt on CBS

I have been watching the television drama Doubt this summer on CBS.

The cast has included these soap opera performers:

Lawrence Pressman (The Edge of Night; the show set in Pine Valley)

Tom Wright (the show set in Pine Valley; Search for Tomorrow)

Judith Light (the show set in Llanview)

Christina Pickles (The Guiding Light; Another World)

Stephen Macht (the show set in Llanview)

The first episode that I saw was directed by the daughter of Sasha von Schuller (Love Is a Many Splendored Thing; the show set in Pine Valley) and Paul Avilla Mayer (co-creator of Ryan's Hope; co-writer of Love of Life, Where the Heart Is, Search for Tomorrow).

I think that the creators of this show, Tony Phelan and Joan Rater, would be wonderful creators of a daytime serial. Hopefully, they may work on a serial sometime in the future!
