Passions is an American television soap opera which aired on NBC from July 5, 1999 to September 7, 2007. Created by writer James E. Reilly and produced by NBC Studios, the series was subsequently picked up by direct broadcast satellite service DirecTV, which broadcast new episodes airing on its exclusive channel The 101 starting September 17, 2007.[2] In December 2007, DirecTV decided not to renew its contract for the series,[3][4][5] and the studio was unable to sell the show elsewhere.[6] The final episode aired on DirecTV on August 7, 2008.[7][8]

Passions follows the various romantic and paranormal adventures of the residents of Harmony, a fictional New England hamlet. Storylines center around the interactions among members of its multi-racial core families — the African American Russells, Caucasian Cranes and Bennetts, and half-Mexican half-Irish Lopez-Fitzgeralds — as well as the supernatural including town witch Tabitha Lenox.

During its NBC run, Passions ran for 60 minutes every weekday (excluding some holidays). After the move to DirecTV, the schedule was shortened to four days a week (Monday through Thursday) plus weekend marathon encores, then later three days a week (Monday through Wednesday) starting in January 2008 until the finale. The series was also available via online paid subscription from NBC within the United States[9] and on the paid cable Super Channel in Canada.[10]
