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!

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.

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.
