Kimberly McCullough and Brooklyn Rae Silzer Make A Return To GH!

Courtesy/ABC

Looky who was back on the set of General Hospital!

According to a tweet with a photo from executive producer, Frank Valentini, fan favorites Kimberly McCullough (Robin) and Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) were back on set filming new episodes.  Could it be that Emma and Robin are back for the annual Nurses’ Ball?

Valentini tweeted, “Late night shenanigans with these two beauties. #GH #Wrappizza

Hopefully this means that Brooklyn will be performing in a new production number and Kimberly will be making a moving speech for the annual Port Charles gala.

So, glad to hear there will be some Robin and Emma on the way?  No dates yet as to when they will air, but we would expect its sometime in May.

Come on back–anytime! Always lovely to see them both.

Wish they would stay on GH both are great assets. Love ❤️

Indeed great to see them both, but they’re just part of the spinning revolving doors at GH, unfortunately. Hilary B. Smith came on the show, many of us hoping he’d be the new D.A. She played Valentin’s attorney for several days and that was it.

Now Jax it back, but he’s heading out the door again, too. Rather than having some talent and great characters roles like these two could play, ABC is paying the girl from Turkey and Amy the gossipy nurse and…. Good grief. Disappointing.

I look forward to seeing these two beauties. I am sad to lose Jane Elliott, but I am happy her exit story is moving along. I feel that the network serials (all 4) need to speed up their story telling to compete with steaming services I love that I can find so many favorite old shows to stream. I only watch GH and if story drags I can and do not watch for two weeks at times. I read the synopsis and decide what I want to watch.

Wouldn’t it be great if they would stream our serials episodes from years past. Someone run with this idea.

Great post. Would love to stream Port Charles, in particular. The book-format would make it the best candidate to stream

This is good news BUT…GH has been nearly unwatchable lately. I love GH; GH is my soap and I have watched for decades. They have the best cast in daytime. However the current writing team may be the worst in the history of the show. Poor Jane Elliot’s exit story as Tracy is a contrived abomination. The usual reliable casting director has bombed big time with the actress playing the Turkish woman. I have never seen such an abysmal performance on a soap. Practically all stories are re-written on the fly when major inconsistencies are revealed. Follow through on story arcs is willy-nilly. A lot of dialogue is just plain awful. Any time you write a scene where a major talent like Michael Easton talks to a lizard you should be embarrassed. So many painful non-stories are being dragged out that it is a trial to watch and endure. I tune in every day to see these amazing actors and also out of loyalty and habit. Mostly I do not enjoy what I am seeing. Again, I say all this because I am a major fan of the show and want it to thrive and continue into the future. Please somebody, step in and fix this mess!

Yeah, I basically agree. I have watched “GH” off and on since 1980. This current batch of writers just don’t have what it takes. Although there are some good individual moments here and there, overall the show is boring.

Completely agree Mister Media…. THE WRITING IS ATROCIOUS ‼️‼️‼️

Jane’s exit story is awful, unbearable to watch and I am sorry, the Turkish woman creeps me out. I can’t watch it! I don’t care about the woman, her child, etc. I care about the Quartermaine’s. The Q’s could banter and squabble for the next month, all during Jane’s exit, and I would enjoy that, welcome that, instead of this atrocious story arc.

Saaaaameeera has uncanny resemblance to Octomom, the personality of a dead log and only whispers her lines.

I’m all for more Qs. But she’s a Firm No.

“Contrived abomination ” pretty much says it all, Mister Media!!!! And that goes far beyond just Tracy’s swansong story! Quite honestly, watching Michael Easton’s Finn romancing his “service lizard” would be more exciting than most of the hum-drum happenings occurring in Port Charles these days….particularly the arrival of that not-so “Turkish Delight,” Samira, or as I prefer to call her, “Sabs the Second!”

I figured they would be back for the NB. If Kim wanted to return full time they should just recast Patrick. JT will NEVER leave Y&R for GH!

I love Jason Thompson on Y&R, major on-screen chemistry with Gina Tognoni (Phyllis). I only watch the show in anticipation of their scenes, and Eileen Davidson (Ashley).

Jason is fitting in well there. Not a fan of him and Phyllis, though.

Always welcome. Robin is the de facto heart and soul of the show.

This return has to be for the Ball. I have always loved watching that in the years they did it. All the performances are always so good and it brings a change of pace to the show which I also like. Looking forward to this year to see what Lucy puts together!!!

Agreed, any excuse for more Lucy Coe!

Been watching GH for years and I live the show. But I’ve been really disappointed lately. The Nelle kidney story was silly. Why would Jax go to Frank Benson for a kidney?? Crazy!!

Mary SF
Mary SF

And it still doesn’t explain why Jake was taken by Helena-or how- if they thought Jake was the donor all these years, why would Jax’s seek out Frank Benson– unless he sought him out before Jake die, yet when Jake died wouldn’t Jax’s say– hey I already got a kidney–how does Jake fit into the Jax’s buying a kidney story– the two story threads do not mesh– It would have made more sense if Jerry Jack’s was involved- that Jax’s went to him for a kidney– at least Jerry and Helena have a connection — they fake Jake’s death, kidnap him for whatever reason they still haven’t said– and substitute Nelle’s kidney for what everyone thought was Jake’s– but who were these doctors and how was this switch was made, is still unclear— as you said this story line is plain crazy

SO stupid and the whole rewrite of how Carly thought the kidney came from Jake Webber. Just SO stupid.

LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING BOTH OF THEM….GH NEEDS SOME NEW BETTER TALES SO LETS USE THESE TWO….

I’m happy to see that GH characters are being brought back…if not permanently then at least more so than we’ve had in recent years. Jax, Bobby, Scott, Lucy, Robin, Ned, Olivia Jerome…I’d like to see them all on contract but I know that’s not going to happen. So it’s fun and welcome whenever any of these “peeps” pop up in town. It adds to the continuity and just as in life, friends and family come and go. I love “returns”. I’d STILL like to see AJ brought back…I really don’t care what lame excuse they invent. Hmph! 🙂

Agreed, love little Emma Drake. Brooklyn could teach a few of the adult actors a few tricks of the trade; she’s got more talent than some of the adults on the show.

Watching a movie with Tyler Christopher /Nick I absolutely loathe what they have done to long time veterans not interested in this show do not care if our network ever picks abc up again ! FV treats the oldies like crap but we get non stop air time from his buddies who over act on every turn

Glad to hear that they are returning. I think everyone needs to lay off on the criticism of the writers. Great actors cannot just look at the screen and get nominated or even win an Emmy without the words of the writing team. And GH continues to dominate the top Emmy nominations with wins in the past few years. My Emmy picks:
Best Drama: B&B (will win) or GH (should win)
Best Actor: Senior Steal Peter Bergman (Y&R) or Scott Clifton (B&B)
Actress: Nancy Lee Grahn or Laura Wright from GH (toss it up) – Only Gina Tognoni (Y&R) could steal it.
Supporting Actor: Chad Duel (GH)
Supporting Actress: Finola Hughes (GH)
Younger Actor: Bryan Craig (GH)
Younger Actress: Chloe Lanier or Lexi Ainsworth (GH) toss it up
Writing: B&B or GH

All we have left of GH is a few good scenes here and there so I’m sure KMc and Brooklyn will supply us with some of those. The good part is I have lots of time on my hands to do other things besides trying to figure out what the story is that they’re trying to write on this show.

Off topic, but is Michael Fairman okay? There hasn’t been a new news post in six days. I hope he’s alright.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

Newsom has said modifications to regional guidance would be allowed so long as there are attestations at the county level that there are adequate plans in place should a rise in COVID cases be seen again.   As of May 18, when L.A. filed its attestation, the county had a stable or declining number of patients hospitalized for COVID-19.   However, there has been an uptick in cases as of Friday which could effect the production restart in Hollywood as well as the noted uptick in hospitalizations; all of which are measures in the protocol guidelines that need to be on the decline for things to move forward.

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.
