What is the difference between "open" soap opera and "closed" soap opera?
#61956. Asked by UT-7. (Jan 24 06 7:07 AM)
An open soap is one in which the writers do not have a specific time-frame in mind when they write it (e.g. "Days of Our Lives"), and can easily go on for decades if its popular enough. A closed soap has a specific time-frame and a number of episodes (which isn't to say it is short-run), and is sometimes referred to as a "telenovela".
