Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Insecure}}'' has ''Due North'', a parody of {{prime time soap}}s like ''Series/{{Empire}}'', about a black slave involved in a clandestine romance with her master. This one is so elaborate that the writers actually wrote 13 episodes, along with creating a set and casting Regina Hall and [[Series/{{Scandal}} Scott Foley.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', Roger watches what's supposed to be ''{{Dynasty}}'', but the only scene we ever see is the two main women slapping each other and calling each other "bitch" in turn. The scenery changes sometimes, but they are always doing the same thing.

* One ''AsTheWorldTurns'' fanfic has Luke and Reid as fans of a soap which is [[{{Expy}} pretty much]] ''As The World Turns'' with the names changed. The two originally meet on a message board that is definitely not Soap Central and argued over their preferred pairings: Luke wants the expy Luke/Noah pairing, while Reid is an expy Luke/Reid shipper. The story pokes a lot of fun at the ShipToShipCombat / DieForOurShip and FanDumb seen on the ''[=ATWT=]'' message boards.
