The wait is almost over for the premiere of the new ABC.com original series, “GH Now,” hosted by “General Hospital’s” Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis). The series, which brings fans closer to their favorite Port Charles denizens than ever before, is set to premiere on ABC.com and the WATCH ABC app on Monday, January 12 with the first three of six episodes, reports TVLine.
In a preview clip of the series posted on TVLine‘s website, Grahn is seen on Hollywood Boulevard looking to “discover new daytime talent and hopefully teach them a few tricks.” Said tricks include the art of the soap opera slap, throwing a drink in someone’s face and the soap opera make out, which as demonstrated by Grahn and intern, Graham, resulted in the two falling to the ground for their “knee-buckling kiss.”
One of the most hilarious parts of the clip finds Grahn asking a couple if they were in love, except the male part of the pairing stated, “No, we’re married.”
“GH Now” will also feature sit down interviews with several of Grahn’s “GH” castmates and discussion with a celebrity panel of fans of the soap, including comedians Sarah Colonna (“Chelsea Lately”), Jimmy Pardo (“Comedy Bang! Bang!”) and Jen Kober (“American Reunion”). “Grey’s Anatomy” star Justin Chambers (Alex Karev) is also set to make an appearance on the series.
Some of the “GH” stars set to appear in episodes of the series include Sebastian Roché (ex-Jerry Jacks), Lisa LoCicero (Olivia Falconeri), Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake), Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones), Emme Rylan (Lulu Falconeri, Tyler Christopher (Nikolas Cassadine), Michelle Stafford (Nina Clay), William deVry (Julian Jerome), Kristen Alderson (Kiki Jerome), Vinessa Antoine (Jordan Ashford), Sean Blakemore (Shawn Butler), Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos), Ian Buchanan (Duke Lavery), Ryan Paevey (Nathan West) and Ryan Carnes (Lucas Jones), among several others.
The remaining batch of episodes of “GH Now” will release on Monday, February 2.
