ABC Soaps in Depth is reporting today that General Hospital’s Leslie Charleson (Monica Quartermaine), who has been nominated for four Daytime Emmy Awards, but who has been relegated to back burner for the last several years has been taken off contract.  This means, however, that Charleson has been bumped to recurring status by the series.  An ABC rep could not comment on the contract status as that is their policy.

Charleson has been on the ABC sudser for over three decades.  Monica’s on-screen husband, Alan Quartermaine, played by Stuart Damon, was killed off the series back in 2007, and since then her air time has dwindled.

They should be ashamed of themselves. There is so much potential with Monica. There is a REASON she was front burner on GH for over 20 years…FANS love her. Guza needs to get over himself, and he needs to realize that fans WANT to see veterans, and that we are over stupid Sonny and Jason. I hope Leslie Charleson doesn’t take this bullshit, and walks out with her head held high. I think DAYs should cast her as NuLaura Horton, or maybe she could go to Y&R and interact with Jill and Kathering. Maybe she could be Katherine’s REAL long… Read more »

Oh pleezzz let Catherine Chancellor’s long lost daughter be Crystal Chappell. She would be a great antagonist for Jill or love interest for Jack. I agree that Tucker McCall has not made a significant impact. Crystal Chappell was born to make trouble on soap operas or primetime.

The greatest actress to ever grace “General Hospital” is now off contract. Way to go you idiots at ABC. I am so sick of this serial being the “Sonny Corinthos” show. Haven’t watched it in several years, and to know Monica has been reduced to recurring status is another reason I will not watch this mob trash ever again. This is yet another nail in the demise of this once great serial. A sad day.

Are they crazy? What a complete and utter shame this is. I agree with RJ that these is so much potential for Monica. However, there will never be enough of Jason for me and with them being mother and son there is so much potential for them as well, especially since Jason and Sam are back together and Monica always liked Sam with Jason. This could be a great way to bring Monica and Jason much closer. I sure hope she stays at GH and they see that this was a big mistake.

I stopped watching GH when they first took off Denise Alexander, tuned back in briefly when she was brought back. All of the “orginals” are all most gone now. It’s been “One Life To Live” all the way ever since for me. It is the only one I have watched for about the last 15 years.
Maybe ABC should have Leslie appear on OLTO. The hospital still play a big role over there.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.

When Martin Met Jackie (AKA All My Children’s Tad and Jenny) on General Hospital

If you caught Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama snuck in a ‘wink-wink nudge-nudge’ to viewers of the once dominant ABC daytime soap opera line-up.

Since Kim Delaney was announced as coming to GH to take on the role of ace investigative journalist, Jackie Templeton, longtime All My Children viewers noted that she at some point could be reunited with her former All My Children TV brother, Michael E. Knight, because they are both now in Port Charles.

The one time Tad and Jenny Gardner of Pine Valley got re-acquainted on yesterday’s episode when Martin interrupted a conversation between Jackie and her son, Chase (Josh Swickard).  When he did, Jackie looks at Martin and says, “Do I know you?”   She looks as though she is trying to place exactly where she knows that face from, and from there the two eventually share their first one-on-one scenes as their new soap alter-egos.

In the moment, Martin wants Jackie to investigate what happened to his mother, Florence, and reveals to Jackie that his bio-brother is Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), which perks up Jackie to probably do some digging.

For many, it was great to see Michael and Kim together again, and here’s hoping GH can capitalize on it in future scenes.

So did you enjoy the nod to All My Children history on yesterday’s GH between Jackie and Martin aka Jenny and Tad? Comment below.
