Great news for The Bay and daytime fans who have missed the work of former General Hospital executive producer, Wendy Riche.  The talented lady responsible for many of GH’s most powerful and emotional storylines has joined forces with The Bay’s creator Gregori J. Martin as the digital series executive consultant!

In her role, Riche will work closely with Martin fleshing out stories for new episodes, and enhancing the production in all areas.  Riche had already started working on The Bay.   Look for Riche’s contributions to first show up in new content shooting in May that will air on Amazon Prime in the fall.

Martin said of the Riche addition:  “I was first introduced to Wendy’s work when she joined General Hospital in the early 9o’s and have been a big fan of hers ever since.  Wendy is a master at pulling on the heart strings and fleshing out characters so she’s going to help bring a lot of those elements to The Bay.  We’re all very excited to have her on board.”

So, what do you think of Wendy Riche joining The Bay? Comment below!

I wish that Wendy Riche would come back to General Hospital. I loved the Claire Labine and Wendy Riche era-Sonny and Brenda, Ned and Lois, the Q’s, Luke’s night club, the hospital stories. Such great storytelling!

Wouldn’t it be great if Wendy came back and GH had an EP who actually cared about GH and wanted to produce a show for GH fans? First order of business, take out the trash; Franco, Nina, Julian, Ava…

This is amazing. Wendy Riche is brilliant. I would give anything to have her back at GH but am glad she will be working on The Bay now. This show is about to take off in a really big way and I couldn’t be more excited. Amazon Prime will be happening this summer, no doubt.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Has a Feeling She Has ‘A Daughter Out There’

The latest promo for this week’s episodes of General Hospital has been released and from the looks of it – and a key episode set to air on Wednesday April 8th – the mystery surrounding if Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) biological daughter is alive, and if so who is it, looks to be kicking into high gear.

There is that necklace that Nina is looking at in the promo, Nelle (Chloe Lanier) who seemingly now is being given an opportunity to work with Nina thus getting closer to her who notices the necklace, and then there is Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), who many have thought could actually be Nina’s daughter given their original tense relationship.

And coming up on Wednesday, look for a special episode where the show looks at Carly’s (Laura Wright) past with her adoptive parents Frank and Virginia Benson before she came to Port Charles in 1996.

Look for Eden McCoy (Josslyn) to play a young Carly, Cynthia Watros to play Virginia, James Patrick Stuart to play Valentin, and Willa Rose to play a young Nelle.  What will we learn from that episode?

Now below watch the latest teaser from GH, and let us know if you think Nina will finally figure out who her real bio-daughter is via the comment section below.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.
