The drama behind the drama. The show follows the cast & crew of the fictitious soap opera, "Painted Dreams." When the director yells cut, the drama on camera doesn't come close to the fireworks that happen behind-the-scenes. Loosely based on experiences of show creator, Sonia Blangiardo's 20+yrs experience working as director/producer on daytime dramas; AMC, OLTL, ATWT, GH, & currently DOOL.
Behind the scenes at "Painted Dreams", senior producer, Angelica's sexy rumination is interrupted as she must do damage control when leading man Gregory sleeps with his on-screen daughter, Liza, as his on & off screen wife, Veronica walks in. Elsewhere, commitment phoebe Adam, the show's exec producer is feeling no pain as he marries the show's ingenue, Peyton at a Vegas chapel.
Veronica uses her pull to get Dylan the handyman job at the studio, much to Angelica's dismay, before heading off to couples' counseling with Gregory where a mystery is unveiled. As Angelica & Jordan wait for their significant others, Max & Kassandra to join them for dinner, it's clear there is more to their relationship than meets the eye. Adam & Peyton return for first time as husband & wife.
Angelica is reminded her time to have a baby is running out and confides in Anthony her plan to get pregnant.

A jealous Max makes a rash decision about Angelica.
Pasts are revealed as Veronica commits the ultimate betrayal against once best friend Courtney, while the truth of why Adam & Liza's fairy tale love abruptly ended is finally exposed. Jordan pretends not to be affected by Max & Angelica's news, yet it seems to matter when moving in with Kassandra is on the table. Angelica thinks back to a night not too long ago that bonded Jordan & her forever.
Dylan gives Peyton an "inappropriate" gift that gets him in hot water with Angelica. Liza confesses her plan to rectify a past mistake. Although Anthony still disapproves of Angelica's decision about Max, he can't help but put his feelings aside to dish with her when Adam sticks her with his airhead niece as an assistant. When Anthony's mother sweeps into town, life as he knows it is over.
Kassandra & Max try to guilt Jordan & Angelica into going to a celeb studded party but they want no part of it. So the two decide to go together. Peyton discovers she and her new husband don't share the same dreams. Anthony's plan to escape his mom by going to a speed dating event goes awry.

All hell breaks lose when Veronica discovers Greg at Liza's apt. She goes to a bar for comfort and her drunken tirade carries into the next day when she shows up to work intoxicated and attacks her director Henry as the cast & crew watches.
The season comes crashing to an end as Courtney throws a party for Eddy's birthday, while Veronica faces the consequences of her drunken rage. Waiting for Adam, Peyton finds herself bonding with Dylan at the bar. Liza gets closer to finding her daughter while Greg feels guilty about his actions. With Angelica stuck at work, Max flirts with a girl at the party and is confronted by Jordan.

If you love Soap Operas like I do and miss all your favorite stars from AMC, OLTL, GL, and ATWT, chances are you'll wind up seeing them in this series. I am a huge fan of Alicia Minshew and she's wonderful in this! Kelley Menighan Hensley also gives a brilliant performance. Sure the storylines are a bit camp and the sets cannot even begin to compare with any of the soaps on network tv, but the cast is quality and I easily indulged in this series from beginning to end and gobbled it up like a goey chocolate chip cookie!!!
After waiting for a very long time after first hearing about this show, I was so glad I could finally watch it for free, streaming on Amazon Video. ***TO AMAZON: Thank you SO MUCH for offering Tainted Dreams! ***PLEASE make future episodes/seasons available the same way as you did this first one!!!*** Thanks!
Tainted Dreams, is a behind the scene look at the "fictional" soap Painted Dreams. One gets to see what it takes to put a soap on the air. I hope there isn't that much drama happening behind my favorite television shows. Tainted Dreams is what I consider and old-fashioned soap opera. All the standard cheating, lying and conniving is fully on display, without being so unrealistic to be unbelievable. I look forward to the second season and hope that Amazon will continue to make it part of its Prime line up.
