BREAKING NEWS: Former Y&R Exec Josh Griffith Lands Trial Writing Deal With General Hospital!




 
Ah nothing like the taste of old blood! General Hospital has added a new scribe to its stable of writers. Word is veteran producer/scribe Josh Griffith, who co-created the late Aaron Spelling’s short-lived NBC guilty pleasure soap Sunset Beach with current GH head writer Bob Guza, has been offered a trial script writing deal with the ABC sudser. When we last heard from Griffith, who also wrote for One Life to Live, As The World Turns and my beloved Santa Barbara, he was being bounced from his executive producer gig at The Young and the Restless for allegedly tangling with Auntie Ri Ri (aka Maria Arena Bell). Josh is alright and all I guess, but when is someone gonna hire Sri Rao?

    This is a step in the right direction. I don’t understand why Josh has to share. Just get Guza out of there! Hopefully, this is the beginning of the creative renaissance for GH…

    LOL his trial is not for co-head. It’s just a part of the writing team.

    Its not the scripts or the breakdowns that need work,its the long story that needs help. GUZA needs a co-headwriter to balance him out and Frons’ to stop meddling would also help.

    Yeah I agree w/tori4rmtexas! I think getting Guza a coHW to balance out things would be a start. B/c after starting rewatching again w/new eyes I realize that the pieces are there, but we need ppl to put it together. I think if they do what GL did and divide the HW teams w/ppl like Karen Harris & Michele Val Jean, you know WOMEN!!!!!!!!!, along w/Guza it can go a long way.

    Oh, what the hell?!
    Will those idiots realize that getting people for the writing team don’t mean a damn thing when the problem stems from the head writer. This is show is determined to get canceled.

    Hopefully this is a step in the right direction… As for Sri, I’m assuming he’s got other projects he’s working on and might not want to write for a daytime soap :(

    Whatever happened to that ABC Daytime Writers Development program they used to have (or whatever they called it)?? I would think they’d have plenty of fresh meat to pick from, just from that program alone.

    If Frons is still there, will anything ever really change???

    They need to start pink-slipping from the top & work their way down.

    Sri Rao would be a dream come true!

    Unless he is able to get his ideas to play out in story.

    I don’t see the point the problems are still there Guza as HW and Frons meddling with his vision

    The “vision” isn’t changing just how it is written. Everytime I get hopeful and its just the same ole airhogs eating the screen. Basically the same ole story….a bunch of new meaningless characters that come and go….
