I was trying to find the post by Matt(?) which suggested just such a project! I wanted him to see that someone was on the same wavelength! Not only could I not find the thread, I couldn't manage to put a link up to the Snark Weighs In blog where I read about it! Thank you for posting the news , PIH, and a link to Tom's blog! There's a REASON I named myself "Grandpa" Hughes, although I don't doubt there are MANY seniors more tecnically proficient than this middle aged guy! :unsure:

Oh, geez. JoBeth Williams is playing the exec. producer of the soap in the show? And Karen Harris is the writer?! Was that Arianne Zuker I saw playing an actress, too? Geez!

From writer Karen Harris (General Hospital, All My Children), LIFE IN GENERAL is a soap within a soap - a look at the creative process, the politics of network television, the office romances, the backstabbing, lying, deceit and depravity that can only be found on and off the set. And thatís just behind the scenes. You can also watch the daytime drama itself, GREENVILLE GENERAL.

Lindze Letherman from GH and Bryan Datillo are also in it. Oh, and Brynn Thayer from OLTL.

ETA: John Ingle (GH/DAYS) too!

I'm definitely going to have to keep an eye out for this and watch. This looks like it's going to be fantastic!

This seems intriguing. I think that it seems more of a dark comedy a la Desperate Housewives meets The Office with a little bit of Ugly Betty.

Bryan Dattilo isn't a part of this project, although I'm sure he'd be a great addition.
