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

Photo: IMDB/ABC

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.

I guess it’s a way to do a PSA, but I really couldn’t care about the GMA3 promo. These “news” and talk shows bore me terrifically stiff.

Well if i am the only who now wants more than anything for Sacha to be Jackie’s daughter…

That doesn’t seem likely, since Sasha would have to be older than Chase for that story to work. And that wouldn’t appear to be the case.

Presumably Robert would be Sasha’s father in this scenario, but I’m not really seeing that either.

I agree—not Robert’s daughter. But, it’s a soap—I’m sure ‘ye gods’ could think of something to accomodate the story, if they chose to go that way. How about Cyrus’ daughter? Oh, the irony….
There are many possibilities. Way back when, I had intimated Chase ( sp?) could be Finn’s son. Now, we know Jackie and Finn had a “one-night-stand”? What if they ‘met up’ several years later and “danced” again—another procreation? Vicious circle. Repetitive plots are the heartbeat of soaps.

Considering Cyrus seemed to have some sexual interest in Sasha when he was supplying her with drugs, I would certainly hope he’s not her father! It would only be slightly less creepy if he was her uncle, so that lets out Martin as well, I would suppose. If she had to be related to any existing families in Port Charles, I’d guess she’s a Quartermaine, from either the Celia or Jimmy Lee branches of the family tree. She actually has a resemblance to Celia (for those who can remember back that far). And at least that way, she and Mikey… Read more »

OK, Iam lost here. Where does this idea come from? Why would Jackie and Sasha be related? Help!

You are not—-I thought about it, myself, Bruni. However, my “farout” notions are mainly just that. So, it’s refreshing to see someone else think the same thought —at least, in this instance.

I love the creativity & cross promotion! GH is best soap going right now.

I can not get over Carly’s over the top interest in Nina’s finding out her daughter was Nel, other than the fact that she actually had something to do with Nel’s demise.
She used to accuse Nel with being obcessed with her, but it looks like the other way around now. If she had just told the truth from the beginning, it would not have blown over.

You know, Violet, whenever a movie becomes a hit, they say that executives then get together and try to mold every subsequent film the same way. I read that way back in 1970, any new ideas for plots were met with the question, “How can it be like “Love Story?”, the biggest movie back then. I think GH execs do something similar. They sit around thinking, “How can this storyline involve Carly and/or Sonny?”

You are so right! I forgot, this IS the Carly and Sonny show but try as hard as they can, somehow there is always some other characters that make it more interesting at least to me.

I watched before I read this and frankly, I had no idea it was a “cross-over” bit. So, I guess it wasn’t made very prominent.

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the 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. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.
