Kimberly McCullough
General Hospital star Kimberly McCullough creates pitch for new series, Hey Day
In her pitch video, McCullough (Robin on GH) recounts General Hospital's rise to fame in the ‘80s and how as a child, she was brought in to play the daughter of international super-spies Anna Devane and Robert Scorpio. There’s tons of classic clips from the soap as well as interviews with Jay Leno, Regis Philbin, and Oprah Winfrey.

Growing up on camera and having to hide her family’s Mexican heritage because an agent once told her as a child that she looked “too ethnic” inspired McCullough to write Hey Day, a fictionalized look at a daytime soap in the '80s.

"The Oral History of Harley Quinn" includes Days of our Lives connection
Said co-creator Paul Dini: "Harley Quinn [from “harlequin”], even though that technically is more of a male character in Commedia dell'arte, I thought it sounded very cute. So I started making her this snappy, fun, almost 1940s sassy character. Around that time, I had seen my friend, [actor] Arleen Sorkin, playing a jester (Calliope) in a fantasy sequence in Days of our Lives where she was making jokes. I used a little bit of that: What if Harley’s got a little bit of that jester feel to her? What if she’s like the Joker’s court jester?"

Stacey Dash and General Hospital alum Antonio Sabato Jr. believe stumping for Trump got them blacklisted from Hollywood
