Tainted Dreams has everything one would want in an online soap or any soap for that matter. The sudsy webseries is full of sex, scandal, mystery, and intrigue. The brainchild of Emmy-winning producer/director Sonia Blangiardo is all about the sexy outlandish happenings behind the cameras of the fictional New York soap Painted Dreams.
Not only does it include some of the genre’s favorite actors but it provides its audience with a nice tongue in cheek peek at what it may or may not be like on the set of a soap opera. The concept of a soap about a soap works because of the knowledgeable writing and acting. Blangiardo’s creation doesn’t over indulge in pretense. While there are several nods to the real soap industry, Blangiardo clearly understands that the soap fans are her target audience.

It has been nearly a year since Hurricane Sandy ravaged the Jersey Shore, and this production reinforces that Asbury Park and the Jersey Shore are back in business and ‘Jersey Strong,’” explains Candace Straight, lifelong New Jersey resident and NYC Brand Productions’ partner. The Stone Pony, internationally famous for its rich rock-n-roll history, has been a Jersey Shore institution for nearly four decades.

The show will air on ESPNU and ESPN2 beginning in 2014.
