GENERAL HOSPITAL fans, are you ready to get your funny bone tickled? Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) has something up her sleeve that is sure to do the trick! She will be launching a six-part original digital series on ABC.com called GENERAL HOSPITAL NOW! Part talk show, part sketch comedy show, part man-on-the-street interviews, part quiz show, it's got a little something for every soap fan who likes to chuckle about the genre they love the most!
"We have so much appreciation for the fans and this industry," Grahn says. "A friend of mine and I have this saying, 'I know that you know that I know that you know.' And that is kind of what I'm saying to the fans with GH NOW! It's a wink to them about soap operas. They are a good, wonderful form of entertainment and we are so lucky to be doing it and so lucky to be a part of it and so lucky to have this loyal audience. It's a celebration!"
Among the fun antics are behind-the-scenes fun, crazy outtakes, comedy sketches, quizzes and guests that include Jason Thompson (Patrick), Tyler Christopher (Nikolas), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Lisa LoCicero (Olivia), Ian Buchanan (Duke) and Sebastian Roche (ex-Jerry)!
"I wanted to do this show because I wanted to have fun, and," Grahn says, "if I'm having fun, hopefully, that laughter, fun and good, positive energy translates!" You can count on it!
GH NOW! can be found on ABC.com and WATCH ABC, which is accessible from ABC.com or via the WATCH ABC app, which is free on select Android and iOS devices via Google Play and the App Store. Its first three episodes debut on Monday, January 12, followed by another three on Monday, February 2. And you can watch a preview below!
