SoapNet Spices Up Scripted Lineup With ‘Secret Lives’

Apr 2, 2008  •  Post A Comment

SoapNet will debut an original scripted series, “MVP: The Secret Lives of Hockey Wives,” about ice hockey players on the Canadian Mustangs team and their wives.
The first 10 hourlong episodes of the series will begin airing June 19 at 11pm.
“‘MVP’ is an intense drama with a great cast and interesting stories,” said Brian Frons, Disney-ABC Television group president of daytime. “Our record-breaking success with ‘General Hospital: Night Shift’ last year reinforces that our viewers have an insatiable appetite for serialized drama.”
The series is produced by Toronto-based Screen Door. Mary Young Leckie and Heather Haldane serve as executive producers. “MVP: The Secret Lives of Hockey Wives” is the show’s working title.


  1. I thought they were going to do more spinoffs of regular soaps-they had said Y & R and One Life would be spun off. There have already been seris about football players’ wives and girlfriends.
    Also, how about putting the remaining soaps As the World Turns, Guiding Light and Bold and Beautiful on Soap Net? they are getting far afield, especially with this Sunday night movie thing-there are movie channels all over the dial already, and even TV Land is now showing too many movies instead of series.

  2. I had the opportunity to view the show in Canada as it was a CBC production and I have to say it is well written, if you love drama it is infused with numerous interesting storylines. For those that love soaps with an extra twist, humorous, soul-searching, spiced with some rauncy clips that lend credibity to the behind the scenes prospective of hockey players,the game and passions that rule their lives and spiral out ot their wives and families. Great Entertainment. View one episode and you’re hooked. Enjoy!

  4. I love this show MVP, I’m actually obsessed with it. I couldn’t wait,so I orderd the dvd, I sware I watch the episodes over and over. I’m so hooked on this show. I really hope they bring it back for season 2 and keeping all of the same characters. Way to go Mary Young Leckie. I say if Cananda doesn’t want it, keep it coming to the US. We love it, and I hope they keep the show going. P.S. even though I have the DVD, I still watch the show on Thursdays to keep the ratings up. I hope they make another season, the cliffhanger at the end, well……you will want more!
