Everyone loved All My Children’s Jenny Gardner played by then soap opera newcomer, Kim Delaney.  And after Kim left the world of soaps, she went on to a career on primetime television most notably on NYPD Blue as Diane Russell.

Well, in news this week, Delaney has signed on to reprise the character in the revival of the series in development over at ABC.  This is the role that Kin won a Primetime Emmy for her work back in 1997 for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

According to TV Line, what we do know about the pilot; it will center on the son of Detective Sipowicz, who is working in the 15th squad and trying to earn his detective shield while investigating the murder of his father. However Emmy winner, Dennis Franz, who played the Sipowicz, will not be joining on to the reboot.

The pilot will be helmed by notable executive producers: Matt Olmstead (Chicago Fire), Nick Wootton (Scorpion), and Jesse Bochco (Murder in the First), who is the son of the late NYPD Blue co-creator, Steven Bochco.

Jesse Bochco, will direct the pilot, which is being considered for a potential fall season 2019 launch or possible next year midseason. NYPD Blue aired originally for a 12-year-run from 1993 to 2005 on ABC.

On her instagram account, Delaney wrote: “Diane Russell is back! So excited! Let’s go!”

I think I’ll do a wait and see on this one. I did like her on NYPD and for the short time she was on CSI Miami. I’m happy to see Bill Bochtrup has also signed on but my overall favourites were the ever unpopular David Caruso and the wonderful Dennis Franz.

I agree about David Caruso. I loved him. Dennis Franz too. I liked Ricky Schroeder but the writers ruined his character.

As a fan of NYPD Blue, this discussion caught my eye and I am thrilled to learn about it! I thought I’d make my comments in reply to you, Celia, as I know we’ve been out of touch for a while — I’m the one with very sporadic visits… Glad to see that you were also a fan of this show! I did watch every episode. Like @GramS, I am disappointed that Dennis Franz won’t be a part of this. Same apparently goes for David Caruso. But I liked the entire cast, and I am hopeful to see many others… Read more »

Hi, James,
Good to hear from you….I’ve missed all of you….I’ve missed our chats–life happens….Ive been subbing more oft than not—no school today, though!!
I can’t say I don’t enjoy it, because I do—I try to work around my daughter’s schedule ( pre-school).
She’ll be in school full-time come fall….so, I will, most likely, teach full-time again–
Agreed, my friend—-I’ve always loved Kim Delaney —-I remember watching in my dorm room —the care-free days, James, LOL.
I wish you the best 2019, as well, my friend.❤️

Thanks for your warm reply, Celia! 🙂

Regarding NYPD Blue, I hope to see unsung hero, Medavoy (Gordon Clapp), in this reboot. And Kim Delaney has always been a fan favorite.

So glad to hear that all is going well with you! And that you’re enjoying teaching. I also fondly remember “care-free days,” Celia, and I try to recapture them whenever I can, and I will try to stop by here on occasion, too. Again, best to you and your family! Take care, Friend!

I’m wondering what position Diane Russel will be playing. She should be the captain

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.

The series will stream on Apple TV+, and no word yet as to when it will have its debut following its filming.

 

Since his time on All My Children, Smith has appeared on ABC’s Scandal, and had recurring roles on God Friended MeSelf Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker and Manhunt.

Deadline broke the casting news.

So, looking forward to seeing Cornelius back on our screens? Do you remember his work as Dr. Frankie Hubbard on All My Children? Comment below.
