DC #878: #GenieIsGH



On this special Daytime Confidential episode Luke Kerr, Jamey Giddens, Mike Jubinville and Jillian Bowe dive into the news that General Hospital executive producer Frank Valentini has bumped soap opera legend Genie Francis to recurring.

The DC gang explores the importance of Francis on GH and her character Laura's presence in Port Charles.

#TimesUp and industry pay disparities are a hot topic, so why are GH's actresses paid so much less than their male counterparts?

Valentini's timeline of decisions, and the negative impact of his "Friends of Frank" casting style are explored. His hand has guided GH through casting highs with several popular actors playing fan favorites. However, casting wars with other shows and the addition brand new characters with no ties to Port Charles have tarnished his run.

Should Valentini be fired if Genie Francis' contract situation is not rectified?
