Team From OLTL Coming To General Hospital



It's official. Here's Brian Frons:


"Frank and Ron's creativity, passion and outstanding leadership will be a welcome addition to the cast and crew, as well as viewers and longtime fans," says ABC Daytime president Brian Frons in the statement. "As creative leaders in the industry, I am very excited for their arrival to GH and their dedication to the genre will certainly invigorate the daytime drama that has been part of the pop culture and the TV landscape for many years."

So there you have it! The EP and Headwriter from One Life to Live is coming to GH. When will we see the changes? Probably at least 2 months. Here's hoping it turns around.

OLTL is amazing but they have the cast and history. GH is a shell what can the team do? They're about to kill off Robin and so the only "stable" couple on the whole show will be gone - well except JaSam.... But SCRUBS is traditional old-school couple not GH mob-centric.

Perhaps something CAN be done. Let's cross our fingers and keep watching (I admit, that's what I do. ) I love the show so, and am not looking forward to the end, even after some truly horrible story lines.

I hate those prepared statements by Frons. If he cared about Daytime dramas, he would have helped save them, not kill them off. He doesn't want GH to succeed. I would love to be a fly on the wall of the conference/office about how this really went down.

Now if we could just get Clint and Viki and Blaire and Tomas and Todd and Tea and Nora and Bo--to come to GH so I won't have to miss them so much...
Because I WILL miss them every day. They are like good friends now and to lose them is so painful.

I just hope Frons doesn't decide to micro-manage when Frank and Ron arrive. That could kill it right there.

I will believe that GH is safe when I hear it. I don't believe anything Frons says. He could say that the sky is blue and I would triple check. LOL!

The show will end. They are lying to fans to appease them. This is similar to moving a whole cast of soap actors to a new city only to have it be cancelled. I'm not saying this to be gloomy but disney decided to get out of the soap genre long ago and nothing has changed. PP isn't picking up any of these soaps. The only hope is for some other network or web company to try.

DITTO Amy!!!!! F**K Frons!!

Lisa, I agree, the show is over.
However, at least tptb care enough to give us long time viewers a descent farewell story.
