Over the last few days, social media has been abuzz when the news was announced that John Stamos (Ex-Blackie, GH) has a new dramatic television series in the works alongside his producing partners, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. The concept is said to be loosely based on Stamos’ early days on General Hospital, when he was just 18 years old, and said to be told through the eyes of a young man thrust into sudden stardom, as he deals with the temptations of sex, drugs, and fame in Hollywood in the decadent 80′s.
When news of this item hit Twitter, fans of GH favorite Kimberly McCullough (Robin), and a few of her former co-stars became outraged, because this concept for the Stamos’ series sounds exactly like the “Hey Day” project McCullough has been working on bringing to life, which is based on her days as a young actress working on a network soap in the decadent 80′s.
In fact, On-Air On-Soaps even attended a reading of the script sometime ago that was produced in conjunction with former GH star, Tyler Christopher (Ex-Nikolas). Both Christopher and Jason Thompson (Billy, Y&R and ex-Patrick, GH) played parts in the reading as well, so they are very familiar with McCullough’s material and vision.
On Friday, Vanessa Marcil (Ex-Brenda) took a different tact, asking Stamos to reach out to McCullough: “I know John will be happy to chat about this!!!!!
@JohnStamos holla at your girl @whitewatercrew #Daytimeroyalty”
Former AMC and Y&R star Cady McClain, even joined in on Twitter on Saturday adding, “I saw
#HeyDay pitch pilot and it’s SO awesome. @JohnStamos Holla at your girl! #daytimeroyalty #teamup #powerhouse @whitewatercrew”
Awhile back, McCullough shared with her followers and friends this video of her “Hey Day” passion project as well. Check it out again after the jump. Then share your thoughts and the show of support witnessed on social media for Kimberly in the comment section below.
