General Hospital
ALL THINGS RELATED

On Wednesday, January 30, "General Hospital's" Sean Kanan (AJ Quartermaine) will be putting his comedic chops on display for Mavrick Artists Agency's Comedy Showcase being held in Los Angeles, CA. The event is being hosted by Lorenzo Lamas, who co-starred with Kanan back in the early 2000's on "The Bold and the Beautiful." Lamas portrayed Hector Ramirez on the CBS daytime soap.
Prospect Park first announced plans to move "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" to the web back in July 2011 after striking a license holding deal with Disney/ABC Domestic Television. Sadly, plans fell through by November 2011 after apparent financing and union discussions fell through. Since that dreadful time period, Prospect Park has resumed work on returning the soaps to your [computer] screens, only this time with financing said to be in place and union deals already signed with the DGA (directors), SAG-AFTRA (actors) and the WGA (writers). With more than a year gone by since "One Life to Live" last aired, we thought it would be a great opportunity to see which stars have (so far) signed on to return to "AMC" and "OLTL" compared to the list circling back in 2011.
On Sunday, February 10, SOAPnet will air a five-hour special marathon honoring five of the most popular "super couples" from "General Hospital's" 50 years on television. With voting taking place from January 11 through January 16 on SOAPnet's Facebook page, nearly 37,000 of you helped whittle down the list of couples that encompassed the likes of Alan & Monica, Dante & Lulu, Duke & Anna, Edward & Lila, Frisco & Felicia, Jason & Elizabeth, Jason & Sam, Jax & Brenda, Lucky & Elizabeth, Luke & Laura, Nikolas & Emily, Patrick & Robin, Sonny & Brenda, Sonny & Carly, Steve & Audrey and Stone & Robin. Which couples will be featured? You'll have to tune into the "GH Valentine's Day Supercouple Marathon" beginning Sunday, February 10 at 7:00 PM ET/PT only on SOAPnet.

Jack Wagner Has Returned to ‘General Hospital’

Tuesday, January 22, 2013 10:49 PM EDT
As Soap Opera Network first noted last week, actor Jack Wagner has quietly returned to the set of ABC's "General Hospital" as he reprises the role of Frisco Jones on the daytime soap. According to set side sources and a recent report by TV Guide's Michael Logan, Wagner's return will coincide with "GH's" 50th Anniversary celebration. While details are scarce, sources tell Soap Opera Network that the network will kick off a week long celebration beginning with the Monday, April 1 broadcast that also happens to be the same day "General Hospital" aired its first episode 50 years prior.
On Monday, January 21, if you are wondering what happened to your favorite daytime dramas ("The Bold and the Beautiful," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital," and "The Young and the Restless") or looking for someone to blame for their not airing, you can thank none other than President Barack H. Obama. On this day, President Obama will be publicly inaugurated for the second and final time after winning against former Governor Mitt Romney in last November's hotly debated presidential election.
As expected, ABC has issued an official statement on the matter of Starr Manning, Todd Manning and John McBain, characters currently being seen on the network's "General Hospital," as it pertains to the license of the characters originally from the soon to be rebooted "One Life to Live."
