On Monday, April 1, ABC’s “General Hospital” turns 50! In honor of the event, fans have been anticipating the return of one of the shows grandest events…the Nurses Ball. While things don’t kick into high gear for the event until the Friday, April 5 episode, we at Soap Opera Network wanted to make sure you got a glimpse of some of your favorite actors before their characters start singing, dancing, and throwing punches.
According to Entertainment Tonight, which has your exclusive first look, the Monday, April 1 and Tuesday, April 2 airings of ABC’s “General Hospital” will have fans receiving a special treat as the soap has mixed together several of its iconic opening sequences into a 35 second mash-up that honors the history and legacy of television’s longest-running current dramatic series.
“We’re not in the condo anymore,” says Debbi Morgan (Dr. Angela Hubbard) on the new set of “All My Children.” The actress is part of a behind the scenes video recently uploaded by Hulu to Hulu.com, and also available to subscribers of Hulu Plus for HD viewing, in anticipation of The OnLine Network premiere of “AMC” and sister soap “One Life to Live” scheduled for Monday, April 29 via the aforementioned Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes.
Although “General Hospital” the TV show will turn the golden age of 50 on Monday, April 1, the General Hospital within the show has been preparing for the return of its annual Nurses Ball charity event, which has been inactive since June 2001, and Frank Valentini, Executive Producer, speaks on the return of the Nurses Ball and celebrating fifty years of a television icon.
Cops and doctors will make their presence known on “The Bold and the Beautiful” next week:
Daniel Steven Gonzalez will portray Officer Morales on Monday, April 1.
Dan Martin is back as Lt. Baker on Monday, April 1 and Tuesday, April 2. He was last seen on August 3, 2012.
Jon Hensley will return as Dr. Mead for four episodes starting on Friday, April 5. He was last seen on November 21, 2012.
When word broke that Brandon Barash would be departing ABC’s “General Hospital” after five years portraying the contract role of Johnny Zacchara on the daytime drama series, many fans began to wonder if we had already seen the last of the actor on screen as the character hadn’t appeared on the canvas in some time. Turns out we haven’t seen the last of Barash on “GH” just yet, but we will soon.
After more than a year since the launch of its official website, The OnLine Network/TOLN has finally revealed a website geared towards an audience! As of today, the newly re-designed website features information and links on how to view both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” as well as links to each shows social network site via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr in the case of “OLTL.”
News of Jenni “JWOWW” Farley heading to TOLN’s “One Life to Live” had been brewing all day today as fans of the soap began noticing interesting messages posted on Twitter including one from “JWOWW” herself when she tweeted, “Heading out to the set of one hot new show! Can you guess where I’ll be making an appearance this week?” The tweet was accompanied by an image that showed her in the “OLTL” hair and makeup room getting prepared for her scenes.
Fans have long wondered how they could watch their favorite returning serial dramas “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” since it was revealed in late January that both series would be available for viewing online via Hulu.com, Hulu Plus and iTunes. The OnLine Network released today banner images that summarizes how things will work, but will it be enough to help viewers tune in? We’ll soon find out as “AMC” and “OLTL” premiere Monday, April 29 via the aforementioned video platforms.
With the characters of Matthew Buchanan and Destiny Evans already recast with Robert Gorrie and Laura Harrier, it was only a matter of time before their on-screen love child Drew was recast as well. On Wednesday, Gorrie tweeted a picture of he and his reel-life baby momma holding twin infants Elijah and Isaiah Ford, who are taking over the role on “One Life to Live.”
The babies take over the role from baby Ezra Giovanni-Scott, who played Drew in “OLTL’s” final episodes on ABC.
