WOW, what a treat! Usually you get a 2 minute blip of BTS stuff. Laura was great and the host who was on the split scene, Paula, seemed like she followed the show? Cool.

Good Morning America is such a poor excuse for a television show.It is actually a daily infomercial for ABC and Disney.I love Frank Valentini but this segment,due to the inept interviewers,is embarrassingly lame.

Right timmm..and the delay is in the relay audio. Or whatever it’s called .it happens on all news shows. .LW and FV aren’t use to that on a daily basis. .do got watch CNN or evening news worth audio delay. .I’ve seen it forever and is hard for even me to get used to seeing it

I see how passionate you are about this. I hope things turn around for you. ALL three networks have gone to a format where its like Entertainment Tonight with politics and floods mixed into the show. I see what your saying. It doesnt bother me. I get my serious news in the evenings and look forward to 60 minutes on Sundays.

Laura Wright is so real and genuine. This was a treat. I especially love how she couldn’t even say fast enough “There’s Maura…she won this year’s EMMY!” You can’t fake stuff like that, and it was nice to see these people in their work environment. I wish we could see more stuff like this. It doesn’t ruin the magic of television, for me it enhances it. I just wish, as always, that Laura didn’t play such a loud, obnoxious, misogynistic mob moll character. Under the previous three incarnations, Carly was like nails on a chalkboard for me, but in the… Read more »

You’re so right. The character is often annoying, but Wright is sooooo good.

Could the GMA anchor have been any more annoying? Laura was doing great and then Paula decides to be inquisitive with STUPID questions and a clear communication delay that made it very hard to have a real conversation. A good journalist should know when to keep their mouth shut. Clearly, this anchor is not a good journalist.

Loved this video! Laura did a great job with the tour! Too bad the audio was on delay. Could have done without the GMA host interrupting her!

ABC should capitalize on Laura Wright’s tremendous appeal and make her a View co-host or ongoing soap correspondent for GMA. She’s smart, funny and charming – highly watchable and entertaining! What a smile!! Long live GH!

Why would you want to punish Ms Wright by putting her on that sinking ship called The View?She is too clever for that,I hope.Smart,funny,and charming are not welcome on the View.Stupid,sour and nasty are the currency there.

This is as close to a TV drama set I am sure I am ever going to get. Laura and Frank did great on their commentary. The segment did not seem rushed. I enjoyed it very much. Thank you for sharing.

The most amazing thing was that they went twenty minutes without an insipid commercial break. When does that ever happen? I thought overall it was pretty good, something Katie Couric should have done three years ago when she did an afternoon tribute to GH and a Saturday night special. All they did then was show the hair and make up room. The worst part was the delay between the GMA host on the East Coast and Laura and Frank on the West Coast. They could have done a better job of ironing out that little issue ahead of time. I… Read more »

General Hospital to Incorporate In-Story ‘GMA3: What You Need to Know’ Jackie Templeton & Sasha Gilmore Interview

In a crossover of sorts, on the upcoming, Wednesday, January 27 episode of General Hospital, the daytime drama series will bring the characters of Jackie Templeton (Kim Delaney) and Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) to its true lead-in, GMA3: What You Need to Know, but in a fictitious way for a revealing and explosive interview.

The scene is set in the Metro Court in Port Charles, and Jackie, the ace reporter and journalist has some tough questions for Sasha during their sit-down interview.  The in-story tie-in helps promote both shows in the ABC afternoon line-up.

Soap Opera Digest, who first brought the news of the mash-up in their latest issue, revealed that the moment is “being played as a remote segment for the ABC news and lifestyle program.”

However, there will be no one from GMA3 appearing on the Wednesday episode.

So what do you think will happen during the Jackie/Sasha sit-down? Comment below.

In the real life story, the remains of the women were uncovered accidentally as police searched for Shannan, who went missing after visiting a client, whom she met on Craigslist, in the gated community of Oak Beach on Long Island, and then fleeing the man’s home.   However, police believe that Mari’s unwavering fight to find her daughter which led to finding the other women is not how Shannan ultimately disappeared.

While the case has yet to be solved the film shares, “Though the search for the serial killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon.”

PEOPLE exclusively dropped the trailer over the weekend.  Make sure to check it out.

Once the trailer was released, Delaney shared on her Twitter account: “Amazing director @StanleyMBrooks Thank you so much, Stan!Very special producers, cast and crew. An important story!”

WATCH: The Cast of ‘Studio City’ Talk On the Latest Five Episodes & The Making of the Critically-Acclaimed Digital Drama

It’s one of the most talked about digital dramas out there, with a look and feel all its own, containing smart, witty, and dramatic plots and dialogue, and stellar performances abound.

In Amazon Prime’s Studio City, the story about life on a soap in front of the camera juxtaposed with the often harsh reality of life behind the scenes, will have any fan of the genre getting a kick out of some of the very familiar soap tropes contained within balanced with the five-hankie moments throughout  And now, Studio City has dropped their latest five episodes picking the story back up from where it left off.

Michael Fairman chatted with the cast of Studio City in his latest interview for The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube. Those taking part in this virtual conversation included: Sean Kanan (Sam), Sarah Joy Brown (Laurie), Tristan Rogers (Doc), Carolyn Hennesy (Gloria), Scott Turner Schofield (Max), Anna Maria Horsford (Jolene), and Justin Torkildesn (Jacob).  Ronn Moss, who also appears in the series playing a version of himself, was filming a movie during the scheduling of this chat, but his presence is felt when some hilarious moments featuring him and Sean Kanan were discussed.

Getting a show up and running and then taped during the Covid-19 pandemic is no easy task as Kanan shared in the group interview.  As well, Anna Maria Horsford and Sarah Joy Brown share how they came to their parts and the rapid-fire pace in which their scenes were shot.  Tristan Rogers, who won a Daytime Emmy last year for his performance as Doc, gives another heartbreaking turn, and reveals his thoughts on the work he did, plus shares his remembrances of his late friend and GH co-star, John Reilly.

Scott Turner Schofield talks about how Sean and his wife Michele Kanan, two of the creators of the show, have given him and the transgender community a space with Max’s storyline in Studio City.  GH favorite, Carolyn Hennesy shares how she crafted her role of Gloria, the executive producer, after Jill Farren Phelps, and Daytime Emmy winner Justin Torkildsen shares how he wound up with a part in the digital drama and the scenes he shares with Hennesy.
