    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — After a seven year absence, actress Sarah Brown is set to make her long awaited return to “General Hospital.”

    Sarah Brown

    On Friday, November 30, rumors began floating around the net after Brown’s official website stated “Sarah is returning to ‘General Hospital.’ More details to come…”. With those few words written, Sarah was said to be returning as Carly Corinthos, the role she originated in 1996, to playing a new character with ties to the mob, and lastly the real Carly Roberts (last played by Kari Wuhrer).

    An ABC rep was able to confirm that Sarah is returning to “General Hospital” in early 2008, but was unable to say who she will be playing or provide a set airdate.

    Although Brown originated the role of Carly Corinthos in 1996, she isn’t the only actress to have played her. Tamara Braun (Carly #2, 2001-2005), Jennifer Bransford (Carly #3, 2005) and currently Laura Wright (Carly #4, 2005-present) have brought their own personal touches to the character.

    Brown’s other credits include a starring role in the children series “VR Troopers” and a stint on CBS’ “As The World Turns” as Julia Larrabee Jackson. Her more recent credits include a part on the big screen in “Big Momma’s House 2″ and tonight she will appear in an episode of FOX’s “K-Ville,” where she will play an Eileen McGillis.

        (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — DirecTV is gearing up for its debut of “Passions” after the daytime soap leaves its broadcast network roots behind for a more limited subscriber base.

        Lindsay Hartley

        Beginning Monday, September 17, “Passions” will make DirecTV’s Channel 101 (aka: The 101) its network home for its daily dose of drama, passion and mythical creatures. The soap will continue to air at 2pm, EST as it did on NBC for eight years. However, “Passions” will now air on a Monday through Thursday schedule instead of the typical Monday through Friday schedule it had become accustomed. Encore episodes will air each day at 7pm, EST with a weekend marathon of the weeks episodes airing Saturdays beginning at 10am, EST.

        In January, after NBC announced plans to extend its “Today” franchise to four hours, it quickly became clear that the additional hour would come at the expense of “Passions.” Affiliates balked at the idea of giving the network back an hour for its daytime lineup, so the network had no choice but to cave by giving affiliates the “Passions” hour.

        DirecTV is currently the multi-channel provider to 16.3 million subscribers.

        “Passions” lasts airs on NBC on Friday, September 7, 2007.
