Soap
A Soap or Soap opera is an ongoing TV Series shown once or more a week, usually cheaply produced, with several authors collaborating on the script. In contrast to a sitcom, the Soap relates several stories running in parallel, there are connected episodes and so-called cliff hangers in which the individual episodes end at the moment of greatest tension (e.g. The Bold and the Beautiful).
