Jane Lynch wins Creative Arts Emmy for ‘Dropping the Soap’!

Last night, Jane Lynch, won a Creative Arts Emmy Award for Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series for her role in ‘Dropping the Soap‘. The series debuted on Dekkoo earlier this year.

If you haven’t seen this outstanding (and now award winning) series we encourage you binge-watch it as soon as possible. Lynch plays a ruthless Executive Producer who sets out to “re-brand” a long running yet failing soap-opera called “Collided Lives” forcing the cast to fight for their own survival by any means necessary.

Congratulations to Jane Lynch and the entire ‘Dropping The Soap’ creative team!

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!

Bend over daytime, ‘Dropping the Soap’ arrives March 7.

We are proud to announce that on March 7, a truly gut-busting 10-part series starring Paul Witten and Jane Lynch will debut on Dekkoo.

Dropping the Soap‘ goes behind-the-scenes of the long-running (awful) soap-opera “Collided Lives:. As the program struggles to stay afloat, a new Executive Producer named Olivia Vanderstein (played by the always hilarious Jane Lynch) shows up to shake things up. While the cast and crew desperately try to hold things together, Julian Drake (the soap’s leading man of “questionable talent and moral compass”) struggles to keep his personal life private and his cast members employed.

This is a show that we can not wait to share with you. All episodes will be available March 7. In the meantime, click on the link below to check out the trailer.
