She may have her hands full with her new son, Otis, but Kimberly McCullough is not slowing down! Before her baby’s birth, she returned to GENERAL HOSPITAL as Robin for another visit, but now she’s back to pursuing her other love: Directing! But she's not doing it at GH... at least not yet! Nope, this time, McCullough is helming an episode of the Netflix revival of ONE DAY AT A TIME! “Boom!” she captioned an Instagram photo of her parking space at the studio.

Loosely based on the classic sitcom, Netflix’s ONE DAY AT A TIME follows Penelope Alvarez, played by Justina Machado, as she raises her two children with the help of her colorful mother, played by Rita Moreno. The first season premiered in January of 2017, and in March, it was renewed for a second. McCullough was not only thrilled to direct an episode of season two, but to get the chance to work with showbiz legend Moreno. “Year. Made,” the actress-turned-director declared of the photo they took together.

In addition to creating the series HEY DAY, a fictionalized look at a hit daytime soap in the ‘80s, McCullough has also directed episodes of SHAKE IT UP!, K.C. UNDERCOVER, and PRETTY LITTLE LIARS. And while she’s happy to return to GH occasionally to act, directing an episode of the soap on which she grew up is a completely different ball of wax!
“I would do it if I was asked,” McCullough admitted to Soaps In Depth. “But it’s also really hard, what these guys have to do. They move so quickly. I think I could do it, because I actually shadowed one of the directors when I was still working there as an actor, so I know how to do it. It’s just a lot of work! If I was there, I’d rather be acting because it’s what I know. On PRETTY LITTLE LIARS, I get seven days to set. At GH, you get one or two.”
Whether McCullough returns to GH in front of or behind the camera, we’ll look forward to that, and of course, as soon as the second season of ONE DAY AT A TIME has a premiere date on Netflix, we’ll be sure to let you know so you can check it out and watch her episode!
