A fictional apartment building featuring a set of very eccentric tenants in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California is the backdrop for a new indie comedy sitcom based on the memoirs of the late Dick Van Patten, best known for his role on the ABC series, Eight is Enough.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

According to The Wrap, Caitlyn Jenner will star as Heather a transgender “white trash” woman who sells perfume at the counter of Macy’s.  Others in the cast include: Vince Van Patten’s wife and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex- DAYS and RHOBH), who plays Brenda, a washed-up actress who can’t accept that her career in showbiz is over.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.

So, what do you think of the premise of Duke of the Valley featuring Caitlyn, Eileen and Vincent? Comment below!

As much as I love the first two mentioned people I was excited to watch the program but since Catlin is in it I do not think so. I didn’t care for her before the transition and don’t like him now. I wish the husband and wife team much success.

” i ” truly, hope , this is a vehicle in which Ms. Jenner, can focus, entirely unto. it’s amazing the mystique… from Mr. American Olympian… gorgeous , at that. When Caitlyn covered “Vogue” I was taken, at how lovely, no matter how touched up…. and now… he’s enjoying his womanhood… I wish he would have done this so much earlier… and enjoyed his youth as a woman. I do not like that he’s republican. and since he does have a nest egg… he can go about his world more freely than most.

All the best to one of the hardest working queens in daytime, Eileen. Everything she does is gold. Ash, Kristen , she was the only real chick on housewives too! Rinna brought her down imo… Sidenote, anytime she cameos on y n r, she needs to share a scene with Eric. Ash and Vic are classic, throw in Nikki too. Shes much to precious to waste on silly scenes with Abby. Tracy and Jack aside, Vic and her are priceless. I ‘d love if she ever returns to Genoa more pt if her and the retired Vic team up to… Read more »

This sounds great. Can’t wait. I like my drama and”cop” shows but like a funny one in between. Good luck to them. Was a long time fan of Dick Van Patten and will be interesting to see C.J in a new and different Genre.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
