”What do you think about the premise of Heart Matters? ”

I think it will be a snore and pale in comparison to the other primetime soaps..
I say– a snore …

Roma Downey is producing another series for NBC. She’s not involved in the HEART MATTERS pilot.

May watch GH but it’s way more than a medical show. Not interested in a med show during prime time. Plus any of the trailers for prime time med shows have made them seem way to dramatic and serious for me, especially at night. As it is I spend enough time muting, or switching channels, when all of the depressing pharmaceutical ads come on.

LOL..and they’re bringing back NigthWatch which is supposed to be in the U.S.A. but the sets look like they’re in another country doing Doctors without borders…so off putting…I do like the new show on A&E NightWatch about the Police/EMT/FireFighters in New Orleans…not bad.

I’m open to who plays the female lead. All I want is another devilicious doctor role for Vincent Irizarry! 🙂

I am looking forward to giving it a shot. I watch Days but at this point I am not very happy with the storyline. The writers need to rethink what they are doing to the show.

Way too early in the process to care– prime time dramas a dime a dozen when in comes to ordering pilots, most never get a shot. But the day any network announces a new daytime drama that I would love to see, but I ain’t holding my breath on that one ever happening.

In 10 years daytime tv will be junk programming and infomercials..
There will no longer be investing in daytime, it is dying ..

the soaps need to find a home on cable, the sooner the better..

I have not watched a medical series on a regular basis since EMERGENCY! was on reruns after school. Not even ST. ELSEWHERE or ER. So, no…this show won’t be for me. As for nighttime soaps, this sounds rather provincial for NBC. I thought they were looking to attract a younger audience with edgier fare (GRIMM, THE BLACKLIST, CONSTANTINE). This sounds too boring even for CBS. Medical-based dramas are passe since HOUSE ended.

Gee, Heart Matters….as if we need another medical themed evening tv show…..not interested at all.
Bring back ALL MY CHILDREN combined with One Life to Live….call it LANDVIEW and air it at night. That I would watch.

Why not focus their attention on DAYS instead of creating new shows, other than the gay story, that soap is in need of repair.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.
