DC #733: Kate Atkinson and Karen Harris Dish Dan Fogelberg Musical, Film Projects and General HospitalBy Daytime Confidential on August 30, 2013
The whimsical, haunting lyrics of late singer/songwriter Dan Fogelberg have been "part of the plan" for legions of "DanFans" since the 1970's. Now, two amazingly-talented people are working to bring Part of the Plan: A New American Musical to the Broadway stage. On today's Daytime Confidential podcast, Luke and Jamey welcome Kate Atkinson and Karen Harris to talk about their new passion project.
Atkinson, a prolific indie filmmaker, shares what inspired her to embark on bringing a jukebox musical, set to Fogelberg's music, to the stage. She also reveals what lead her to partner with veteran daytime and primetime drama scribe Karen Harris (The Incredible Hulk, Night Rider, General Hospital, All My Children, Port Charles) on the project. Speaking of daytime, Harris reveals she's running for the board of the Writers Guild of America (WGA) again and dishes her thoughts on the genre's resurgence. She also talks about her new gig as an adjunct professor at Loyola Marymount University.
A major supporter of the "Scrubs" pairing when she wrote for GH, Harris also shares her thoughts on Kimberly McCullough's upcoming return as Dr. Robin Scorpio and weighs in on news of Brandon Barash and Kirsten Storms' marriage and baby news. All this and much more in this fun, inspiring podcast.

No. 10: Wyatt and Hope, The Bold and the Beautiful
Wyatt Fuller (Darin Brooks) is definitely his father's son. Like Dollar Bill Spencer (Don Diamont), when he sets his sights on something (or someone) he wants, he goes for it! Even if it means going after his newly-discovered half-brother's fiancé.
The Bold and the Beautiful was starting to induce comas with the never-ending saga of Liam (Scott Clifton), Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Hope (Kim Matula). When Ms. Logan discovered Wyatt—and his naked sword—in the woods, we definitely starting having a bit more hope for the future of this storyline. READ MORE
