The new Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) hosted online series, General Hospital Now, will finally have its unveiling in January 2015!

The show which ABC is touting as Nancy asking the hard-hitting questions that fans want to know such as ““You are really good looking. Have you had work done?” looks to be a hybrid of late night talk show and sketch comedy! General Hospital Now will feature a panel of celebrity GH fans, soap studs, fun games and an overdose of side-splitting sketch comedy! It will feature many cast members from GH too!

Fans will be able to check it the show via WATCH ABC & ABC.com! And, they can use the hashtag #GHNow when discussing it and more!

Now after the jump, watch the first official teaser for General Hospital Now and then let us know what you think of it?

It’s about time they did something like this. They need to have more online shows. They could even bring back OLTL and AMC in some form and put them on ABC.com.

Looks quite fun…and Monsieur Ian Buchanan aka Duke is so good looking, refined, elegant…love him! I have mixed feelings about these types of shows..even when I watch one of your (Michael Fairman) interviews. I so want to get lost in these shows/characters, that I don’t want anything to break that fourth wall. On the other hand, if it’s a good show and the actors I like seem likeable in “real” life…I might just tune in. Either way, I like Nancy and I trust whatever she’s involved in will be good.

Sorry to b off topic…was that a FAIKEson with Dr. Liesl today…i doubt it was the real Faison…he doesnt love Dr.O…Faison is the Luke with Tracy while Jerry Jax was pretending to be Faison pretending to be the Fluke holding a gun on Julian…there are two Flukes in PC while the real Luke is still missing!!!

I don’t know jimh! when “Luke” first walked in with Alexis during Thanksgiving many of us thought Helena had switched the real Luke with Fluke…because she seemed too calm when Alexis and Julian found out where Luke was being held. I was SURE they had switched them! Then today…I thought maybe it really was Luke…his personality was so much more like the real Luke that I’m wondering if it’s an imposter again…why didn’t they have him acting more Luke-like from the beginning! So…if it is the real Luke…I’m wondering if Lord Larry is Fluke…after he escaped from the Q’s he could have put on the mask and rushed over to Julian’s to kill him. Faison? I think it’s really him…not sure if he’s had a change of heart over Dr. O…but he’s definitely part of the master plan as we know since he and Helena were talking. The story is great for the very fact that they still have us guessing! Kudos to the writers!

Thanks for your explaination…sounds good…i still fear real Luke is being held and we had seen two Flukes in PC and a FAIKEson and maybe even a fake Larry…the Fluke at Julians is Jerry Jax also pretending to be Faison while the real Faison wore a mask pretending to be Larry while at the Q mansion that Fluke is Anthony Z…meanwhile, that Jake may not even be Jason….i think too much…its given me a headache…lol

Actually, maybe it’s really OLTL disguised as GH! And nobody is who they appear to be! 🙂

You could be right…sometimes it does feel like im watching OLTL and not GH…lol

Honestly? You know what I’d love? And I knowwwwww this would create mad chaos and divide amongst fans who feel the canvas is too big as it is. But, in this day and age of dwindling soaps…I think it would be great to bring MORE fan favorites from other bygone soaps…on. For me, it would be Bo and Nora, Vicki, Tea, even in sporadic appearances. Let Tea or Nora go up against Alexis or Diane…or even be called in to work in conjunction with…let Bo be called in to help Anna…just to keep these characters alive in a crossover that would obviously only cross in one direction since the GHers would have no Llandview to visit… Sigh.

Oh. And Vicki…let’s see…Vicki could give the Q’s a run for their money and mansion…or get back to her working in the diner days and open up a new cozy cafe! yay! or not… hmmmmm….

Id like Erika Slezak’s Viki to somehow be related to the Qs…

she’s too different than them…unless they aged her and brought her in as Lila’s sister…the voice of reason and soul of compassion…until of course she became her evil twin, cousin, sister etc in the many faces of Vicki!

I cannot wait! I love seeing a different side of the actors and the behind the scenes stuff will be really cool.

Wow This looks really really good, I will tune in for this. I love Nancy Lee Grahn, she is a terrific actress and looks sexy for 56 years old. Alexis Davis is the boss, love her so much.

The show looks like fun. So, I’ll tune in. But, I hope they also feature some behind-the-scenes GH staff, who people always ask about. GH fans are always asking about Ava’s, Jordan’s, and Duke’s wardrobe. So, it would be nice to have the costume designer on. Maybe even go shopping with one of the assistants!

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  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 as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

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.
