You’re Going Places, Kid Kudos to Davide Barillari, the creator of The Gates, the borderline salacious student-produced soap opera that we all love to hate (or hate to love). His opus is a finalist in ABC’s SoapU contest, the winner of which gets $20,000 to make a real soap opera. Make sure to vote on the website, too- as of […]
