In a clip that aired during the Monday, August 18 broadcast of KABC’s “Eyewitness News” at 4:00 PM, reporter George Pennacchio noted time slot changes taking place on the ABC Owned Television (OTV) station beginning Monday, September 8, which finds “General Hospital” returning to its original 25+ year time period of 2:00 PM on the station.

In honor of the change, Pennacchio visited the set of the ABC Daytime drama series to speak with several cast members about what viewers can expect to see in the coming months on the soap. Featured in the report were Dominic Zamprogna (Dante), Sean Blakemore (Shawn), Jason Thompson (Patrick), Laura Wright (Carly), Ryan Paevey (Nathan) and “GH” executive producer Frank Valentini.

“There’s lots going on. Lots of new things happening on the show,” said Zamprogna when asked to share any particulars about what to expect from the soap in the coming weeks and months. Sadly, because the stars have been taught to not say too much when talking about future storylines, Zamprogna could only say, “There’s a lot of twists that you think someone’s got the upperhand and then they don’t. I think it’s going to capture a lot of people.”

In late January, MTV gave a series order to its pilot “Finding Carter,” which follows a teenage girl named Carter (Kathryn Prescott) who discovers that the woman who has been raising her isn’t actually her mother at all. With the pick up, actress Cynthia Watros was forced to vacate the role of “The Young and the Restless’” Kelly Andrews, a role currently portrayed by Cady McClain (ex-Dixie Martin, “All My Children”), as the filming schedule would have conflicted with that of the CBS daytime drama series – “Carter” films in Georgia while “Y&R” films in California. Thankfully, Watros’ decision has paid off. The network announced today that it has picked up the series for a second season that will consist of 12 all-new episodes like it did during its first season. In the series, Watros portrays Carter’s biological mother who seeks to reacquaint herself with her daughter.
