ABC Drops Alyssa Milano Sitcom, Will General Hospital Buzz Resume?



ABC Studios has pulled the plug on the highly-anticipated Alyssa Milano sitcom Single With Parents due to "creative differences" among the show's producers, says The Hollywood Reporter. Rumors had the Who's The Boss? and Melrose Place alum atop the list to recreate the role of General Hospital's Brenda Barrett just prior to her booking the sitcom deal, on the strength of her career-reviving turn in the Lifetime TV movie Wisegal.

Since it doesn't look like Vanessa Marcil is returning anytime soon and GH is currently in a ratings free fall, I say ABC daytime honcho Brian Frons should offer Milano the sun, moon and even an uncontested spot on Dancing With the Stars in order to get her on GH before VH1 can attempt to help her find love. Milano is one of a select few actresses who could fully embody the character of Brenda Barrett with the same spunk and spirit of Marcil's original interpretation. Recast Brenda already! I love Marcil, but the show, er soap must go on!
