Wow! Tristan Rogers and Crystal Chappell together in a web series!  Very intriguing!  That is the latest casting news from Cedar Box Productions new web series, The Team, which is scheduled to shoot this June in Shreveport, Louisiana!

General Hospital, The Bay and The Young and the Restless fan favorite Tristan Rogers has been cast in the series as Seneca Levine, a retired CIA agent and ex-military officer that inherited a very large sum of money from his brother.

We also learned more of the character lowdown from The Team’s writer and producer, Emily Hummel. “Seneca used this money to form the Levine Foundation.  The Levine Foundation is composed of an unlikely team of agents with various skills that solve crimes and provide protection for the friends and families of whose who protect the US.  Seneca selected Payton, played by Crystal Chappell, to head up his team in the field.  Of note: Seneca was good friends with Payton’s father and served as a father figure to her once her ties with her family were severed.”

So, are you excited about The Team? Who else from daytime would you love to see in this web series playing alongside of Chappell and Rogers?  Let us know!

TV as we know it is certainly changing. I have been watching the Webseries episodes that I can find. They need to more effectively advertise. Most I have run across by accident.

I’d love to see Peter Reckell play opposite Crystal again. Loved Bo and Carly on Days. Seems Payton has a father figure, maybe she needs a romantic partner 🙂

I’m thinking of giving these soap web series a try. I watched soaps on ABC.com for at least a couple years. I was looking forward to watching OLTL online. Was disappointed when it didn’t happen.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
