John Stamos may be keeping busy with appearances on Fuller House and his role on Scream Queens, but the actor has other aspirations for the small screen. Uncle Jesse is developing and producing a series that centres around the world
turns of ’80s soap operas, so if Ryan’s Hope, Santa Barbara and Guiding Light (and All My Children, Days of Our Lives and Y&R) were, or are, your jam, then you’re going to love this.
Stamos, who got his start playing Blackie Parrish on General Hospital when he was 18, wants to give us an inside look at the dramatic world of daytime television in the ’80s. He’s teamed up with producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (Smash, Drop Dead Diva) to develop the project, which will be loosely based on his early days on soaps.
According to ET Online, “the drama will be told through the eyes of a young man thrust into sudden stardom, as he deals with the temptations of sex, drugs, and fame in Hollywood.”
Every soap fan’s dream. It’s one thing to know the happenings in and around Genoa City, Salem, Pine Valley and Port Charles but the dark and crazy behind-the-scenes action sounds like a soap within a soap. How has no one done this before? We love an original idea. Now, bring on the love triangles, back-from-the-dead characters and uncomfortably long fades-to-black.
