New On-Line Soap Network Coming Soon!

SudsvilleLogo.jpg

Later this fall, there will be a new Web site completely dedicated to daytime fans! Veteran soap scribe Meg Kelly (who has written for AS THE WORLD TURNS and DAYS OF OUR LIVES) and entertainment marketing pro Joseph Craig have partnered with Conklin-Intracom to create SudsvilleTV.com.

Kelly tells Soaps In Depth that both she and Craig believe "that you can deliver a strong production for not a ton of money. If it's well-written, well-acted and smartly produced, you can deliver high-end entertainment."

To that end, SudsvilleTV plans to offer more than a dozen shows when the channel launches in late October. "I've created 16 shows for our new network, all 10 episodes each and a lot of fun," shares Craig, who has experience as both a movie and Broadway producer. "We have two game shows, a talk show called A.M. SUDSVILLE that will be three times a week, and then a mix of reality and improv shows. They are all themed around things that our soap audience really loves."

Craig adds that they are in the midst of casting all of the shows now, including a 40-episode series that Kelly is penning. Starting today, fans can sign up at www.sudsvilletv.com to get alerts about the upcoming programs -- including exclusive casting news and previews! "We're very excited about it," says Kelly, promising that there will be some familiar faces from the world of daytime attached to the SudsvilleTV shows, like GUIDING LIGHT fan favorite Michael O'Leary (Rick), who will be hosting THE AMAZING SOAP TRIVIA CHALLENGE game show! "We want to take soap operas to the next place."

Once fans have signed up, they will get alerts to all new Sudsville developments, as they happen: casting, special previews, interviews from the sets, behind the scenes footage. And fans will also be able to enter contests to win great prizes! You can also follow SudsvilleTV on Facebook and Twitter.

Who Is Dillon?

DillonTracy.jpg

Tracy's son, Dillon, returned to GENERAL HOSPITAL today! Need a refresher course on the character's history? Read on.

Dillon's childhood was anything but ordinary. He spent a large chunk of those early years gallivanting the globe with his mom. Tracy's relationship with her wealthy family was never warm and fuzzy, so Dillon became her mischievous travelling companion. Many years later, when he was a teenager, she dropped him off at the Quartermaine's door and let him fend for himself!

Dillon's devil-may-care attitude and zany sense of humor was endearing to some (like Georgie) and annoying to others, like his grandfather Edward, who threatened to ship him off to military school if he didn't shape up! Dillon and Georgie quickly became a couple, a notion that his mother Tracy and her Uncle Mac abhorred. It didn't help much when the teen started doing odd jobs for one of PC's known mobsters, Lorenzo Alcazar. Tracy found a way to kill two birds with one stone -- she'd see to it that Dillon quit his job if (and only if) Georgie broke up with him.

Heartbroken by Georgie's rejection, Dillon lost his virginity to Alcazar's niece, Sage... which Georgie, naturally, walked in on! Eventually, the young lovers reunited and, after a series of humorous mishaps, Dillon and Georgie finally consummated their relationship.

Together, they survived Georgie's near-fatal fall, a campus stalker and a deadly virus that came very close to taking Dillon's life. As he lay weak and presumably dying in a hospital bed, he and Georgie were married. Their love led to his recovery. But there was still the threat of Tracy. She was not thrilled with her son's choice of brides, so she cut him off financially. The newlyweds were forced to move into a cheap room above Kelly's... next door to the town thug, Diego Alcazar.

Meanwhile, Lulu had developed feelings for her stepbrother and made it her mission to break up his marriage. She told Dillon that she had seen Georgie and Diego having sex in the Quartermaine boathouse. (Shocker: Lulu lied!) Acting out, Dillon impulsively slept with Lulu. Although Dillon and Georgie were still madly in love and married, they were both so badly hurt and angry that they divorced. Just as they began to find their way back to each other, Lulu found out she was pregnant with Dillon's child. Lulu was ecstatic; Dillon, not so much. She ended up having an abortion.

Dillon confessed his feelings for Lulu, but he wasn't the only young gentleman after her affection. Among her suitors were Spinelli, Milo, and Scotty's son, Logan. Around that time, Ned told his kid brother that he had arranged for him to assist his favorite director on a movie shooting in Hollywood. It was Dillon's dream job, but he didn't want to leave behind his mother or Lulu. Dillon's heart was again left broke when Lulu said that she and Logan were dating. With that, Dillon packed up and headed for Tinseltown. When he later returned, he learned that Georgie had been murdered at the hands of the Text Message Killer, the man both he and Georgie knew as Diego.

GH's Ainsworth Goes Back To School!

LexiAinsworthHS.jpg

GENERAL HOSPITAL's Lexi Ainsworth (ex-Kristina) is headed back to high school for her appearance in The CW's drama, iZOMBIE. "I play this girl named Tate," Ainsworth says of the Tuesday, June 2, episode titled "Dead Rat Live Rat Brown Rat White Rat." "My friend gets eaten by a zombie, but I don't really know what happened."

Look for the actress to share scenes with the lead character, Liv Moore (Rose McIver), a medical resident who's hiding that she's become a zombie by working in the coroner's office and solving murders. "I'm this ditzy cheerleader, and she interviews me and asks questions about my friend," Ainsworth reveals. "It's supposed to be that I'm serious, but it comes across as being funny."

The actress had such a great time on the set that she's eager to find out whether her character can return. "That's what they are discussing," Ainsworth confides. "The show definitely wants to bring me back, so they just have to figure out how and when."

Hello Again, Holly!

Emma_Samms2940.jpg

GENERAL HOSPITAL is pulling out all the stops for Anthony Geary's (Luke) exit storyline! In addition to Genie Francis returning as Laura this coming Friday, June 5 -- and a couple of other rumored comebacks -- executive producer Frank Valentini today revealed that Emma Samms would be reprising Holly!

Holly was part of one of GH's biggest love triangles of the '80s as she found herself caught between Luke and Robert. Samms returned to GH in 2009 to settle the matter of Ethan's paternity, wading through a sea of lies to ultimately confess that the young man is in fact Luke's son.

The last time Holly was seen was in 2013, wrapped up in the search for Jerry Jax and his cure for Polonium poisoning. What will bring her back to Port Charles this time around? And might she have son Ethan in tow? Share your predictions in the comments and stay tuned to see if you were right!

GH Friday Recap: DNA Proves Denise Is Not Ava!

DanteAlexisDenise.jpg

The clock was ticking and it looked as if Ava's ruse was about to be found out. That is, IF Denise was, indeed, Ava!

Sonny, Dante, Morgan, Kiki, Alexis and Julian were gathered around Denise in the PCPD, anxiously awaiting the DNA results that they were certain would prove she was just Ava in disguise. Lucas opened the envelope and looked over its contents. "According to this test, this woman is not Ava Jerome," he announced. There were marker similarities, but it wasn't a perfect match, meaning, she was within Ava's immediate family. Everyone was stunned, and Julian wondered how that was even possible. With that, a gravely voice said, "I think I can clear all of this up." They all turned as Delia stepped into their circle!

Maxie and Nathan were asleep in bed when they were awoken by a whistle. They both jumped and saw that Franco was sitting nearby, staring at them, filing his nails! Nathan muscled him against the wall and demanded to know why he broke into his room. Franco was sure to get in the little tidbit that he and Maxie had once slept together, which she was quick to explain. Franco finally told them of Nina's marriage to Ric and his certainty that he was after her money. He told Ric wanted to be custodian of Nina's finances now that they were married and begged Nathan to help enlighten his sister. Nathan agreed to look into it.

Meanwhile, Nina thought long and hard about Franco telling her of Ric's motive for marrying her that had absolutely nothing to do with love. Olivia interrupted Nina's train of thought and said that her and Franco were done extorting her. Without missing a beat, Olivia booted her out of the hotel! Ric's timing couldn't have been more perfect. He saved Nina's skin by telling Olivia that he and Nina were married and her outstanding bill could be transferred to him. That opened a dialogue between the new mister and missus about money, which raised Nina's suspicions about him even further. Shortly thereafter, Ric paid a visit to his partner in crime at Pentonville... Madeline!

Michael filled in Rosalie about how the Quartermaines were dangerously close to losing the majority of ELQ stockholdings, and the only way to stop the speeding train was to convince Franco to sell the shares back to the company. That's where he wanted Rosalie to step in. He thought that maybe her history with Nina could help the process along. What Michael didn't know was that Rosalie was also working for Nikolas, the man who was determined to take over ELQ!

Sloane told Anna that Mayor Lomax fired him, but he wasn't going to take it lying down! He had evidence that the mayoral election was rigged and that Felicia was rightfully voted into office. Anna pointed out that Sloane couldn't bring down Lomax without incriminating himself. Besides, it was his word against Lomax's. Not so, Sloane corrected her. Nikolas Cassadine was also involved!

Monday on GH, Ric and Madeline conspire against Nina, Delia shares surprising news, and Luke returns! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Okay GENERAL HOSPITAL fans, Friday, June 5, is the date you're going to want to mark on your calendar, because that's when Genie Francis brings Laura back to Port Charles!

Entertainment Weekly broke the news of her first airdate, though at this time there's no details as to how long this stint will be. However, with Anthony Geary (Luke) exiting later this summer, it's more than likely Laura will usher him off the canvas when the time comes.
