I found this on Soap Central. What do you think? I may set my DVR to record it for me and check it out. My husband may flip if I get addicted to another soap opera. LOL Night Shift Cast Announced Posted Wednesday, April 11, 2007 7:54:34 PM Billy Dee Williams has joined the cast of SOAPnet's primetime General Hospital spinoff, General Hospital: Night Shift. The show will also star some of GH's top younger stars. The show starts production this month and will debut in July. The cast of the much anticipated General Hospital primetime spinoff, General Hospital: Night Shift, has now been announced. As expected, the cast will feature some of General Hospital's most popular younger stars - but there are also some new faces amongst the cast as well. The biggest name among the new faces is that of Billy Dee Williams. Williams, a veteranof numerous films and television series, may forever be best known as Lando Calrissian in the Star Wars films The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. This will not be Williams first soap. He starred as Brady Lloyd in the ABC series Dynasty in the mid-1980s and appeared in a handful of episodes of NBC's now-cancelled soap Another World. On General Hospital: Night Shift, Williams will take on the role of a newly created character Toussaint. A show spokesperson described Toussaint as a man with a haunted past. Other cast members include: Adrian Alvarado (Cruz Rodriquez), Bradford Anderson (Damian Spinelli), Julie Marie Berman (Lulu Spencer), Wendy Braun (Ms. Sneed), Steve Burton (Jason Morgan), Derk Cheetwood (Max Giambetti), Josh Duhon (Logan Hayes), Sonya Eddy (Epiphany Johnson), Kiko Ellsworth (Stan Johnson), Richard Gant (Russell Ford), Jason Gerhardt (Coop Barrett), Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Spencer), Kent King (Lainey Winters), Lindze Letherman (Georgie Jones), Natalia Livingston (Emily Quartermaine), Kimberly McCullough (Robin Scorpio), Minae Noji (Kelly Lee), Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake) and Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones). While it was expected that the title of General Hospital: Night Shift would change from its working title, SOAPnet has yet to announce a name change. Production on the one-hour original scripted series begins on Friday, April 20th. The show will premiere in July on SOAPnet.

Well I admit this does sound interesting. I'd love to be able to watch it but we don't have SOAPnet here :( I happen to like Billy Dee Williams andI used to watch General Hospital. I really should check out GH again. It's just something I often miss due to the kid coming home right then. This show though does sound like something I'd like. Maybe if it takes off there they will bring it to regular tv. I can hope right?

You could check the torrent sites and see if they post it and then download it. There are several BBC shows that I do that with. I think the anticipation of waiting fot it to finish makes it better! :)

That is a good idea. I go to t demoniod.com a lot to check on things. That's a good one. I just don't like watching tv shows on my computer if I can help it and to burn it to dvd can be a pain but doable. You know though I think my brother and sister-in-law have the SoapNet. I might be able to get them to tape it for me. Worth asking anyways.

I love General Hospital but i'm not sure about another spin off. Port Charles I felt wasn't all that good. I guess I will have to see how this one goes before I make up my mine for sure.

I love General Hospital, although I have never been a fan of soap stars switching from the soaps like they do no Young & Restless and Bold & Beautiful.

I heard about this. I love General Hospital but I wasn't a fan of Port Charles. So I am a little leery about this one. I will watch it to see what it's like. The cast definitely helps.
