Tonight on NBC  presents Dolly Parton’s childhood story pic, Coat Of Many Colors, which premieres at 9PM ET/PT).

Several soap opera notables are part of the production including: Alyvia Alyn Lind (Faith Newman, The Young and the Restless) who stars as 9-year-old Dolly.

Coat of Many Colors also stars Jennifer Nettles as Parton’s mother, Rick Schroder as her father and Gerald McRaney as her grandfather. The movie was written by former soap actor and writer Pamela K. Long (Guiding Light, One Life to Live, and Santa Barbara) She executive produces with Sam Haskell and Dolly Parton.

Also in the production is none other than Hannah Nordberg, the former Josslyn Jacks of General Hospital.  Nordberg plays a new friend of the young Dolly in the TV pic.

In a review by the Los Angeles Times they the relate on the writing of the special: ” Much of Long’s best writing — again, not surprising, given her background — occurs in the scenes between Parton’s parents as they work out their difficulties and differences, and Schroder and Nettles take their measure nicely.”

So, will you be checking out Alyvia and Hannah in Coat of Many Colors written by former soap scribe, Pam Long? Comment below!

I love seeing soap stars working in different projects! I also LOVED Pam Long’s writing. Her Guiding Light was full of heart, and humour, love, and down home classic storytelling. She would be a good fit for any of the 4 remaining soaps except Bold and Beautiful. The one show that needs writing shake-ups never gets any!!

She might have been good on Guiding Light but she ruined and destroyed my favourite soap Santa Barbara . I pray she never works on daytime soaps ever again ! It ‘s because of her that Santa Barbara got canceled , there were other reasons too .

I abbsolutely hated Pam Long’s writing on Santa Barbara . The whole BJ Walker story which was recycled plot from the rape of Christy Duvall storyline in 1985 ( the Christy one was great and Tricia Cast was brilliant as Christy ) , Cruz divorcing Eden and getting involved with kelly ( a Kelly who by then was atrociously recasted with Eileen Davidson , nothing against Eileen but totally wrong for the Kelly part ) , Ted Capwell recasted with actor Michael Brainard and hooking up and marrying Gina’s daughter Lilly . If Cruz and Eden never returned to the… Read more »

What a wonderful vehicle for two-time Emmy®-winner PAMELA K. LONG!! She will always hold a place in my heart for what she did for GL: not only creating the characters of “Reva”, “Alexandra” and “Harley” (and showcasing three of my favorite actresses Zimmer, McKinsey and Ehlers respectively) but she led GL to dethrone powerhouse (and time-slot competitor) GH for three weeks in the summer of 1984. She also lent her talents to TEX and OLTL, as well as SFT and SB (…which both were cancelled on her watch unfortunately!) Bring her to Genoa City (to reunite her with Phelps) where… Read more »

Pam Long was a great writer for Guiding Light. Can we bring her back and GL too?

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
