Title – ‘Dropping the Soap‘
Director – Ellie Kanner

Release Date – March 7, 2017
Today, Dekkoo presents ‘Dropping the Soap‘. A hilarious 10 episode TV series that presents a highly satirical view of what goes on behind the scenes of filming the ‘hit’ soap opera Collided Lives.
I literally could not stop watching episode after episode of this series once I started. Talk about a binge! The episodes leave you hungry for more of what hi-jinks the main character Julian Draker (Paul Witten – also a co-writer of the show) will get himself into.
After ratings begin to plummet on the long-running soap, Olivia Vanderstein (played with surgical precision by the always formidable Jane Lynch) steps in to take over the management of the show. At the beginning of each episode we get a taste of what audiences see watching the TV show and then immediately get thrown into the chaos of the lives of the cast and crew. Now we don’t really want to give anything away, but this is a gay channel and so let’s just throw it out there that the show does get quite gay as it goes along.
There are so many fantastic cameos that kept me jumping on my couch with joy. John Michael Higgins (Best in Show) plays a depressed commercial director, Diedrich Bader (Veep) plays an old flame of Julian’s, and even Ben Bauer (Hunting Season, Shirtless Dudes Book Club) gets a fun role as one of Olivia’s incredibly disposable personal assistants. Throw that in with hilariously offensive jokes that poke fun at everything and everyone and more than a few bare-chested hotties and I was hooked!
Guys, you really need to drop what your doing and binge ‘Dropping the Soap‘ right now!
