I am really looking forward to how this is going to work! The titles give Phoenix Street (Based on the assumption that the soap is focused around a street name) the impression that it's generally, or rather, perceived as a serene, nice place to live. I can't wait to see who the characters are going to be...
How often will a new episode air, BTW?

Thanks so much Zozo, I'm very much loving my residents of the show. I hope everybody else does too! There's twelve main characters so it'll be very easy for people.

For the first week episodes air everyday from Monday October 25th to Sunday October 31st (Halloween), the reason for it is for everyone to get used to the main cast and then for a big explosive episode on Halloween to really give the soap a great start. But after the first week episodes will air twice a week on Monday and Friday. There may be extra episodes during the week on special occasions (Christmas etc) or if there's a really gripping storyline going on.

Sounds awesome! Thought it might be a bit more regular as it's a soap opera, which is definitely cool. Less of a wait. I can't imagine how much work you have been putting in to write all the episodes though!

Thanks Nathan and Zoe for your comments!

Episodes are fairly short so it doesn't take that long to write and shoot, and because it's a soap rather than a series things can be spaced out more and there's no rush to plant things into a certain amount of episodes. The only episodes which will take a while are big events like the Halloween one, but I put in the work lol.

I Love Maggie, Beatrice & Iris as well as The Johnsons. Those Last Couple of Scenes Were Quite Intriguing. I'm hooked. Can't Wait for More.

I enjoyed the first episode Sam :). It doesn't feel like a soap opera just yet, but I think that the halloween episode will scream "SOAP"a at me so i'm waiting for that one :). I liked the sets and the characters seem pretty impressive :).
Look forward to more :D :D. When's the next episode gonna be out? (how demanding :P :mrgreen:)

Why cause nobody had a fight or died yet? :P It'll happen.

Thanks a lot Nathan! Tonight was the starter episode so it's just about getting the viewers to remember the characters and their personalities before the storylines get deep. I watched the first ever episode of EastEnders to see what they did. :P

Great first episode, Sam, looking forward to more :) The characters are all intriguing, and the old ladies are so realistic when they're like "ooh see they're going to close down, ooh no this is bad" (reminds me of my nan lmao)

Good luck for the rest of the series :)
