TONIGHT: Coat Of Many Colors Starring Y&R’s Alyvia Alyn Lind, With Ex-GH’s Hannah Nordberg & Written By Pam Long!


Tonight on NBC  presents Dolly Parton’s childhood story pic, Coat Of Many Colors, which premieres at 9PM ET/PT).

Several soap opera notables are part of the production including: Alyvia Alyn Lind (Faith Newman, The Young and the Restless) who stars as 9-year-old Dolly.

Coat of Many Colors also stars Jennifer Nettles as Parton’s mother, Rick Schroder as her father and Gerald McRaney as her grandfather. The movie was written by former soap actor and writer Pamela K. Long (Guiding Light, One Life to Live, and Santa Barbara) She executive produces with Sam Haskell and Dolly Parton.

Also in the production is none other than Hannah Nordberg, the former Josslyn Jacks of General Hospital.  Nordberg plays a new friend of the young Dolly in the TV pic.

In a review by the Los Angeles Times they the relate on the writing of the special: ” Much of Long’s best writing — again, not surprising, given her background — occurs in the scenes between Parton’s parents as they work out their difficulties and differences, and Schroder and Nettles take their measure nicely.”

So, will you be checking out Alyvia and Hannah in Coat of Many Colors written by former soap scribe, Pam Long? Comment below!

    I love seeing soap stars working in different projects! I also LOVED Pam Long’s writing. Her Guiding Light was full of heart, and humour, love, and down home classic storytelling. She would be a good fit for any of the 4 remaining soaps except Bold and Beautiful. The one show that needs writing shake-ups never gets any!!

      She might have been good on Guiding Light but she ruined and destroyed my favourite soap Santa Barbara . I pray she never works on daytime soaps ever again ! It ‘s because of her that Santa Barbara got canceled , there were other reasons too .

      Alyvia was great. This kid is going places. Her affectation of a Tennessee accent was so believable. And, her acting not do shabby, either…LOL. Wow!! Impressive!

    I abbsolutely hated Pam Long’s writing on Santa Barbara . The whole BJ Walker story which was recycled plot from the rape of Christy Duvall storyline in 1985 ( the Christy one was great and Tricia Cast was brilliant as Christy ) , Cruz divorcing Eden and getting involved with kelly ( a Kelly who by then was atrociously recasted with Eileen Davidson , nothing against Eileen but totally wrong for the Kelly part ) , Ted Capwell recasted with actor Michael Brainard and hooking up and marrying Gina’s daughter Lilly . If Cruz and Eden never returned to the show its because of Pamela Long , Paul Rauch who was executive producer and Susan Lee who was head of NBC . Long had Gina marry Lionel instead of bringing back Justin Deas ‘s Keith and having him remarry Gina , Augusta never returned thanks to Long so no Lionel Augusta reunion , Long introduced strings of newbies on Santa Barbara than no one cared about , although she brought Kim Zimmer on the show her character Jodie had no substance or depth at all . Jodie was no Reva . Of course Santa Barbara ‘s ratings went down and it was canceled . With Dolly she has the story already told ( advantage of biographies ) .

    What a wonderful vehicle for two-time Emmy®-winner PAMELA K. LONG!! She will always hold a place in my heart for what she did for GL: not only creating the characters of “Reva”, “Alexandra” and “Harley” (and showcasing three of my favorite actresses Zimmer, McKinsey and Ehlers respectively) but she led GL to dethrone powerhouse (and time-slot competitor) GH for three weeks in the summer of 1984. She also lent her talents to TEX and OLTL, as well as SFT and SB (…which both were cancelled on her watch unfortunately!) Bring her to Genoa City (to reunite her with Phelps) where she is sadly and desperately-needed and send Pratt packing once-and-for-all!!

    Pam Long was a great writer for Guiding Light. Can we bring her back and GL too?

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Part Three: Heartbreak, Revelations, A Surprise Guest!

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, it was the third installment of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018, which featured: three musical performances, a reveal to Jason (Steve Burton) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) that Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is Henrik Faison, Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) water breaking as she is in a car with Peter, and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) trying to cope with overhearing that Finn (Michael Easton) has deep feelings for Anna (Finola Hughes).

During the festivities, Ned (Wally Kurth) and his wife, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), take the stage and perform (What’s So Funny) Bout Peace, Love and Understanding, originally made famous by Elvis Costello. Later, in a tender performance Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Oscar (Garren Stitt) bring down the house performing, “I Never Knew” the most moving moment thus far at this year’s ball as Oscar’s parents, Kim (Tamara Braun) and Drew (Billy Miller) look on with pride.

While the performances are happening onstage, backstage the drama heats up after Finn admits to Anna that he has feelings for her and how he has never stopped thinking about her. Alexis overhears this whole confession to Anna.

Upset, Alexis heads out of the ball and past the stage, even though she was supposed to receive the Pioneer Award. She heads to the bar. Finn finds her, but Alexis would prefer to be alone. He leaves. Enter Julian (William deVry)! Will Julexis finally get back together, or will Alexis push Julian away? Elsewhere, Sam tells Jason about the lighter of Cesar Faison’s she found in Peter’s office and the P.K. Sinclair book. Jason realizes that Peter is Henrik. Meanwhile, Anna has texted Peter again to meet her. But Maxie. who is with Peter, tells him she wants him to take her home, because she isn’t feeling well. Later, her water breaks while driving in the car with Peter, and she urges him to pull over.
