Morgan Fairchild is known for appearing in many 1980’s soaps beginning with roles on Search For Tomorrow and Dallas. She appeared on Falcon Crest and starred on Flamingo Road, The City, and had iconic moments on Murphy Brown (Emmy nominated), Roseanne, and as Chandler’s mom on Friends. No stranger to the stage she took on the iconic role of Mrs. Robinson in the national tour of The Graduate and has appeared regionally in many productions.
"I am so glad to be back wreaking havoc!” says Morgan Fairchild from her Los Angeles home.
The soapy new series centers round the fight of ownership for a historic gay watering hole, Mélange. After the bar’s founder (played by Guiding Light’s Robert Newman) mysteriously and suddenly dies, his strikingly handsome protégé (One Life to Live’s Scott Evans) and estranged ex-wife (Fairchild) battle for control. As the stakes rise and tensions mount, Mélange becomes infested with betrayal, corruption, and revenge.
Mélange emulates the grand storytelling flair of 80’s primetime decadent dramas that pitted good vs. evil but in a contemporary, fast-paced style. It explores modern themes of sexuality, immigration, addiction, power, and inclusion.
“The world needs a show like Mélange, now more than ever,” says Tom D’Angora. “It is my hope that this delicious cast, led by the iconic Morgan Fairchild reading everyone in her path while plotting a hostile takeover, will allow people to escape reality, if only for a moment or two.”
The pilot episode of Mélange was directed by Emmy Award-winner Gary Donatelli (One Life to Live) and Tony Award-winning producer Tim Kashani (American In Paris, Memphis).
“The pilot show that will air on LOGO this month is a calling card, if you will, a tasty little appetizer,” D’Angora explains. “If viewers like what they see, a full season, with additional exciting characters and stars dropping into Mélange, is very much in the works and will start filming the moment the lockdown is lifted.”
Mélange premiered its pilot episode on LOGO TV’s digital platforms (http://www.logotv.com) on May 20th at 4pm.
