Kimberly McCullough & Tyler Christopher Create New Soap Project HEY DAY: TV Pilot Reading To Feature Many GH Soap Stars!

Now this sounds like fun! That clever gal, GH’s Kimberly McCullough (Robin) has new project that she has written, and has joined forces with none other than Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) as the producer!  Kimberly and Tyler have created a new television pilot that soap fans should love called Hey Day!

As they tease about the story of Hey Day: “In the hey day of soaps a naive ingenue is thrust into the debaucherous on-screen/off-screen world of the daytime series ‘Doctors of Romance’.  With guidance of her stage-mom will Angel be able to maintain her innocence in the cut-throat world of superstardom.”

To bring the TV pilot to life, Kimberly and Tyler are having a live staged reading of it on Thursday night, October 30th at Theatre 68 (NoHo Arts Center, 11136 Magnolia Blvd., North Hollywood, CA) starting at 7:30 p.m.

In the cast performing the pilot that night from General Hospital are: Finola Hughes (Anna), Ian Buchanan (Duke), Linda Elena Tover (Rosalie), Lexi Ainsworth (Ex-Kristina), Minae Noji (Ex-Kelly), Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer), Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) and Ronnie Marmo (Ex-Ronnie).  In addition, One Life to Live favorite Bree Williamson (Ex-Jessica) will also take part in it.

For ticket information and how you can be part of this one of a kind experience as Kimberly McCullough says on her Twitter: “A soap star event about soaps starring soap stars written by a soap star” click here!

Why did I ever move out of LA? Break a leg guys!!!

This sounds like so much fun. I like the concept. Wish them all the best for success!

That would be awesome especially if they could help us get these vets back on GH. The one we really want back is Genie Francis.

That seems like fun but-
I am nowhere near North Hollywood, CA ..

I wish I lived in California I would so go to this!!!! I love all the GH stard & Bree Williamson is an added bonus!!!! Hope this project comes to b!!! Way to go Kimberly!!!! 🙂

sounds interesting: is it a stage show or a real pilot for a possible tv series???

It is a working script for a possible pilot– a reading is when a group of performers read the script out loud in a similar way as old radio plays– I imagine they are inviting the public to the reading to see what elements in the script work and don’t work with an audience. I mean you don’t want people laughing when they are supposed to be crying or crying when they should be laughing.

However they are long ways off from actually making a pilot and then trying to sell it to networks or cable channels — it might end up being a web series. But for those live in the area, it sounds like a fun way to be apart of the process of developing a show— but there are lot steps to go before it might be a reality.

I wish i lived in the area…sounds fun!!!

Great!! Good Luck!!!

With all the soap stars Hey Day should be a success!!

Love the idea..I just wish they wouldn’t include Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer) ….I fast forward all his scenes..I can’t take him.

Awww I love Spencer.. one of my favorites. 🙂

LOVE Nicolas (Spencer)! One of the cutest lil boy actors ever…

It would be great for all of us fans not in Hollywood area or California to be able to see it. Put it on You tube and publish the link.

I REALLY WISH THAT I ALSO WOULD BE ABLE TO LISTEN TO TYLER AND KIMBERLY AND ALL THE OTHERS. BUT, TOO FAR FOR ME. I WISH THEM GOOD LUCK, THE TWO OF THEM ARE SMART AND A GREAT ACTOR AND ACTRESS TO BOOT. PLEAE KEEP US UP-TO-DATE, AND I THROW IN A PRAYER FOR THEM. HOPING IT CAN BE PICKED UP, AND THEN THE FUN BEGINS. MARY D. P..

I love this idea, it sounds like too much fun!! I hope it gets picked up by one of the networks (hopefully ABC 🙂 ) .. Have to add I’m love reading that Ronnie Marmo is there, I absolutely loved Ronnie Domestico, wish they didn’t kill him.

Good Luck,my old friends (Kimberly) and Tyler for great success on new soap show will be great!!!

I would go to this but Massachusetts is not exactly around the corner Break a leg guys.. I hope it all goes well for you. Who ever goes tell us how it went, M. Fairman I am talking to you. ok.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Finn Tells Violet That Gregory Passed, While Elizabeth Sees He Has Been Drinking

The raw emotions continued on the Wednesday, May 22nd episode of General Hospital as Finn (Michael Easton) and Chase (Josh Swickard) try to come to grips with the death of their father, Gregory (Gregory Harrison).

In story, Gregory passed away in his sleep and his battle with ALS came to its conclusion. In the pick-up, Finn now has to tell his daughter, Violet (Jophielle Love) that her grandfather had passed when she returned home from school.

Gingerly, Finn does his best to explain to Violet what happened. Finn tells her that her grandfather’s heart stopped beating, and he wasn’t in pain. Violet bursts into tears saying that she wants Grandpa to still be here and runs into his room calling out for him. Then, in very touching scenes, Finn follows Violet. She asks her dad where her Grandpa is. Finn explains the paramedics took him away. She cries that she didn’t get the chance to even say goodbye.

Next, Finn hugs Violet and tells his little girl that life is so beautiful, but sometimes it’s unfair. He carries Violet back to the living room, but passes by the bottle of booze. He sits her down on the couch and tells her there will be a funeral in a few days so they will get to say goodbye to Grandpa together. When Violet asks where her Grandpa is now, Finn says he is in heaven.

Later, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) shows up and hugs Violet and Finn. She can see right away that Finn has been drinking, especially after eyeing the glass, and the bottle on the counter. Getting Violet out of the room for a moment, Liz tells Finn she can’t even imagine the pain he must be in right now. So, he should go to a meeting and Violet will come home with her for the night.

Finn puts his foot down that Violet will stay with him. He just watched two total stranger, the paramedics, take his dad away. He says he took one drink to ease his pain. Finn stands up to Liz and says he thinks given the circumstances he has a right to do whatever it takes to get through the day. Next, Liz says she can’t stop him, but she will not have him get drunk with his daughter in the apartment, and so, she is taking Violet with her.

Elsewhere, Chase (Josh Swickard) and Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) decide at the airport to head back to the Quartermaines, and not take off for their honeymoon, since Gregory died. When they show up at the Q’s, Chase says he wants to be with his brother, but he is giving him time to tell Violet. Next, the newlyweds are greeted by Ned (Wally Kurth) and Lois (Rena Sofer). They tell the two the truth, leaving everyone stunned or in tears. Chase heads out to find Tracy.

Meanwhile, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is holding on to her good luck charm from Gregory as her reinstatement hearing begins. Little does she know, he has passed away. Alexis finds out she is in a court battle with Fergus Byrne (Lane Davies), the brother of the late Neil Byrne.

So, what did you think of the performances of Jophielle Love and Michael Easton in the touching scenes between Violet and Finn? Will Finn end up on a complete bender? Will his brother Chase show up in time to help him? Comment below.

Following the on-screen death of his on-screen father, Gregory Chase played by Gregory Harrison, longtime soap vet, Michael Easton (Finn, GH) shared his feelings on a touching Instagram post.

Sharing several photos of himself with Harrison. Easton expressed, “Gregory Harrison. One of the finest actors I’ve ever had the privilege of working with and an even better human being. I learned so much from you, my friend, and it was an absolute honor to get to share a stage with you these past three years. Your talent, grace and powerful presence will be greatly missed around the studio. @gnhsurf @generalhospitalabc #gh #fathersandsons”

In addition, Josh Swickard (Chase), Harrison’s other on-screen son told Soap Opera Digest on Gregory’s exit, “Sometimes when you’re working on a show like this and someone plays your dad, it spills over. He really felt like a father figure to me in so many ways. Still does. He’s such a good human being. He’s been around the block in life, in Hollywood, and then some, and he’s just a wealth of knowledge. And he’s a humble human being.”

Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis, GH) also took to X and shared her sentiments on her time working with Harrison. Grahn said, “Was hard to say good bye to working with my friend, Gregory Harrison. What a treat to share the stage with this guy, and getting to know him was a gift. I truly love & respect everything about him. And I know he’s seeing this. He doesn’t post, but likes to read mine.”
