Set in Genoa City, Wisconsin, The Young And The Restless involves the saga between two wealthy families (the Newmans and the Abbotts) in the cosmetics industry. Head of the Newman clan is Victor Newman, the arrogant, cavorting billionaire and his wife Nikki; and Jack Abbott is the Patriarch of the Abbott family.
'The Young And The Restless' Casts Gina Tognoni As Phylis Summers
Soap opera vet and two-time Daytime Emmy winner Gina Tognoni is the new Phyllis Summers on CBS' The Young and the Restless, replacing fellow Emmy winner Michelle Stafford. This is pretty big news for fans of daytime's No. 1 soap, since Phyllis has been in a coma for a year, so with Tognoni's casting, it looks like she's waking up. Tognoni will make her first apperance on the soap in late summer.
