The talented Michael O’Leary (Ex-Rick, Guiding Light), who spearheaded the hilarious soap spoof web series, Steamboat, posted news of a new web project featuring several familiar faces from daytime dramas on his facebook page this weekend!

Leary stated:  “Just shot a pilot called Harbors in West Hampton two weeks ago. The 30 minute soap was written by Meg Kelly of ATWT and DOOL.  It features Daytime stars Beth Chamberlin, Liz Keifer, Danny Cosgrove and Orlagh Cassidy among others.  There have been executives from ‘other places’ that teamed up with us that made this happen. They have devised a financial/Production model that makes doing a daytime show that looks like nighttime feasible. We will be shopping this to the web/cable next week! We’ll see!”

So soapers, what do you think of this news? Would you be interested to see Harbors given the talent O’Leary noted?  Let us know!

This is fantastic news! I love that it was shot in New York. I wish them the best of luck and I definitely would watch this show!

If they’ve truly come up with a financial/production model that will work, congratulations. Obviously, the Prospect Park people should have talked to some of these folks before raising hopes of soap fans and dashing them so cruelly when they were unable to deliver on what they promised.

I don’t know. I hated Steamboat, so I’m skeptical of his projects now. I hope this one’s better. GL stars may lure me to at least check it out.

Oh, yes I would watch it! I still miss GL & ATWT terribly. These shows always had the most solid casts, and I would love to see some of them again every day.

let’s not compare apples and oranges – a webseries with occasional episodes or finite seasons is not comparable to the monster all-year-round production machine that is a soap worthy its salt

It sounds stupid, but when GL & ATWT went off the air, I cried for days. I had gotten to “know” these people that I had watched everyday for years. My Mom ( she has passed) did too. You escape into their world…feel their pain & happiness. Seeing them in another soap would be great. I would definitely watch!

General Hospital

WATCH: Nancy Lee Grahn, Jane Elliot & Kim Zimmer in ‘Covid Support Group’ Episode Two

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) along with her creative partner. comedian, Kaore Bonell released episode two of the hilarious send-up ‘Covid Support Group” which features Grahn, and two other powerhouses known for their performances on daytime drama: Jane Elliot (Tracy, General Hospital) and Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva, Guiding Light).

In episode two, Bonell and the three women are joined by a very special guest; when none other than former Los Angeles District Attorney, who tried the OJ Simpson Murder Trial, Marcia Clark, shows up!  We won’t tell you what happens, you’ll have to check it out to see.

Watching Zimmer as a boozy version of herself, Grahn with her brilliant comedic timing, and Elliot who is also perfection in this, is just too fun that every soap fan will get a kick-of, and even if you don’t watch daytime, think about how everyone is going stir-crazy during the coronavirus pandemic, and amp it up a bit and you have the genesis of this oh-so-timely series.

Best line of episode 2 was from Grahn:  During confessions during Covid, she says to the support group, “I bitch-slapped a guy who was hoarding toilet paper at CVS, does that count? Or does Erika Slezak get my Emmy for that, too?”
