Kimberly McCullough has launched a new video to promote “Hey Day,” a project close to her heart that she’s been working on for several years now. The project, and pilot, is about a young girl growing up on television and in soaps during the 1980s, the hey day of soaps. It is loosely based on her own life. Her friends and co-stars Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) and Bree Williamson (Claudette Bowen) appear in the pilot. Former “GH” actress and “Pitch Perfect 2” star Chrissie Fit (Mercedes Juarez) plays the central character Angel.

McCullough has been promoting the project through social media, and asks fans to share her video and enthusiasm for the show using the hashtag #80sheydaysoap.

“General Hospital’s” Kimberly McCullough (Port Charles’ Robin Scorpio-Drake) has written a script for a television pilot. The pilot is called “Hey Day” and is based on the soap opera genre. It is also being produced by Tyler Christopher (Nikolas Cassadine). The show is being described as taking place in the hey day of soaps, where a naive newcomer Angel is thrust into the on-screen and off-screen world of the daytime series “Doctors of Romance.”

A special reading of the pilot will take place at 7:30 PM on October 30 at Theatre 68 in North Hollywood, CA. The cast for the reading will include many current and former stars of “General Hospital,” including Lexi Ainsworth (ex-Kristina Davis), Finola Hughes (Anna Devane), Ian Buchanan (Duke Avery), Linda Elena Tovar (Rosalie) and Minae Noji (ex-Kelly Lee).
