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!

What do you think of the concept of Hey Day? Sound familiar to you? Comment below!

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.

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… Read more »

OLTL Alum Christopher Cousins Appears on General Hospital as Dante’s Doctor

On Thursday, the very shrewd fans of daytime drama, noticed a very familiar face on General Hospital in scenes with Dominic Zamprogna in Dante’s return storyline.

Playing Dante’s Doctor turned out to be Christopher Cousins, most soap-famous for his role as Cain Rogan on One Life to Live from 1991 to 1994 and later reprising the role of the conman back in 2008.  Cain was romantically involved with Tina Lord (Andrea Evans) while in story in Llanview.

Cousins also made appearance on two other daytime drama: as Greg Houston on Another World in 1986 and as Colin Crowley on As the World Turns in 1990.  More recently Christopher has been appearing in numerous primetime TV shows and films.

So, do you hope Christopher sticks around on General Hospital?  Do you think it’s just a guest stint for him to serve Dante’s story? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Briana Lane Fills-In For Amanda Setton As General Hospital’s Brook Lynn

Since Amanda Setton has taken maternity leave from General Hospital, so Brooke Lynn will looks a little different starting with today’s all-new episode of the ABC daytime drama series. Briana Lane will take over the role temporarily while Setton is on her leave.

Amanda opened up about expecting her third child and her decision to be safe during this time to Soap Opera Digest, stating:  “Despite being really excited and eager to jump back into GH, due to the many unknowns with Covid and expectant mothers, it was advised for us to wait it out.”

Amanda went to say on her temporary exit from playing Brook Lynn: “I will miss her, but only temporarily! Looking forward to stepping back into her shoes soon enough!”

Setton had nothing but good things to say about her replacement: “I can’t wait to see what Briana brings to the character! I’m sure she will do an incredible job and will bring her own interpretations to this fun and complex character! I’ll be watching and rooting for her all the way!”

Meanwhile, Lane took to her Twitter account to express: “Honored to fill some big, wildly talented shoes and step in as the fierce and loving Brook Lynn Quartermaine. Working alongside such gifted actors and a kind=-hearted crew on such a legendary show has been a career milestone… So happy to be on board!!

Lane has appeared in American Horror Story, NCIS, All American, and 9-1-1 to name a few.

So ready to give Briana a chance at her take on Brook Lynn, while we wish Amanda all the best during her maternity leave? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Makes The Heartbreaking Decision About Mike In Episode With Touching Performances

For anyone who has gone through losing a loved one to Alzheimer’s Disease, Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital would bring them right back to the place they found themselves in when faced with the difficult decision of what to do when there is no more hope, when the disease has progressed to its most advance stages, and wanting the person they love to die with what dignity they have left.

Through Sonny’s journey played beautifully by Maurice Benard, we see a son who wants to do what he can to prolong his father’s life, holding on to the moments where there seemed to be some signs of life within his dad, and not wanting the guilt of being the person to make the ultimate decision – in this case to put Mike (Max Gail) on a feeding tube, when he no longer has the desire to eat.

Wanting to move forward with the procedure to have a feeding tube put into Mike, Sonny runs into Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) who tells him about Yvonne, and how she is at GH on a feeding tube and a ventilator and strapped to a bed.

When Sonny sees how Yvonne is hooked to machines, it is a real awakening for him,  That, coupled with one of the most important talks and moments in the Alzheimer’s storyline when Sonny speaks to Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst)  – who tells him how she sees Mike, who is now a shell of himself, who doesn’t smile, doesn’t eat, and so forth – Sonny is aware of what he truly needs to do.  These scenes they were played to perfection by Rebecca Herbst and Maurice Benard, and couple that with Laura Wright and Steve Burton as a concerned and emotional Carly and Jason; seeing how this situation is ripping Sonny apart, and also facing that Mike will die, they too are devastated and delivered hankie-filled moments in their scenes.

The final minutes of the episode featured father and son in a simple, quiet, and powerful scene where Sonny tells his dad, he is not going to have a procedure, and that it’s OK for him to go.   Mike, in tears, hears what Sonny is saying and is relieved.  Sonny has set him free to die, and now Sonny must face his decision – a selfless one that any of us who have been in this position know has to be done for their loved one; so there will be no more suffering and no more pain.  Kudos to GH for today’s scenes in this storyline.

Watch the scene between Sonny and Elizabeth below.

Now let us know via the comment section, how do you think GH handled this major moment in the telling of the Alzheimer’s storyline? What did you think of the performances?
