TV Soap - - Star News -

Ac­tor John Sta­mos is go­ing back to his soap roots, de­vel­op­ing a drama in­spired by his ex­pe­ri­ences as a young star on Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal in the 1980s. The se­ries, from Ama­zon, is co-pro­duced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. Sta­mos, who cur­rently pro­duces and stars on Fuller House, took to In­sta­gram to share his en­thu­si­asm for the project. He posted “So ex­cited to bring you a story I’ve been try­ing to tell for over a decade. The story of an 18-year-old Or­ange County kid, thrust into the lime­light of Los An­ge­les in the early 80s, as I was anointed the Next Big Thing on Amer­ica’s most pop­u­lar soap. As a newly-minted teen idol, I had to nav­i­gate the al­lur­ing but un­scrupu­lous ter­rain of my new ca­reer while strug­gling to re­main a down-toearth kid who still lives at home and works at his Repub­li­can dad’s Greek diner. Hold on, this one is go­ing to get bumpy.”
