GH Takes on Real-Time Format

Well, the cat is out of the bag. The "innovative storytelling technique" that "GH" will be employing for February Sweeps is real-time format. "GH" will tell its story in 16 one-hour-long episodes -- one for every weekday in Sweeps plus the episode that kicked off the story on January 26th.

"This story is an exciting, emotional roller-coaster told like never before in daytime history," said Brian Frons, president, Daytime, Disney-ABC Television Group.

"This is a very exciting time for General Hospital, as we are continually looking for ways to raise the bar in how we produce a daily drama," added executive producer Jill Farren Phelps. "This is an interesting and captivating way to tell a story that will expertly intertwine all of the show's characters together."

So don't miss a moment of it. Or should I say, a real-time hour of it!
