It's Time to Take a Stand!!

October 26, 2007 - the one year anniversary of Genie Francis' first air date in her 2006 return. She spent 4 weeks giving an Emmy Winning performance that brought the entire cast of General Hospital to a better place in her short time back as Laura Spencer. For those few weeks, General Hospital had heart, soul, passion, love and compassion. In the wake of her departure and subsequent Emmy win, ABC could not even be bothered to give her a much deserved congratulations, nor return her on a permanent basis to the role she made hers, now 31 years ago. The role for which she and her acting partner, Anthony Geary, were inducted into the Soap Opera Hall of Fame 11 years ago. She and Tony changed the face of General Hospital 30 years ago and today that face has taken on a very dark and disastrous front. On this day, I propose an all out blackout for the upcoming sweeps beginning the week of October 29, 2007. This blackout is called in the name of Genie Francis, for the unbelievabley revolting way she has been treated over her 31 years on set and for the incredibley disgusting way she has been treated by ABC regarding a return to her home. It is also called in the name of the fans who grew up with General Hospital and have watched it disintegrate into the cesspool of today. No longer do we see family core values, romance, true love, truth, integrity, compassion, and basic family structure. General Hospital of today is centered around mass destruction, the darkness of the mob, criminal activity, one night stands, lies and lack of morals. It's time for us to take a stand and not allow this face of General Hospital to pollute our air waves any further. Their ratings are diving daily to new lows. We don't have to take part in the destruction of OUR General Hospital any longer. Don't give ABC the satisfaction of watching the filth they are giving us. Don't accept this cut-rate garbage when we know what General Hospital is capable of and has given us in the past. Bring them DOWN so they have to rebuild to OUR standards! BLACKOUT their Sweeps!

Hallmark Channel's Press Release


Ted McGinley (“Hope & Faith”) and Rick Roberts (“Man of the Year”)
Join the “General Hospital” Icon in the Inspirational Drama

A small scrap of paper carrying a message of love and forgiveness survives a fiery plane crash, and leads a journalist struggling with her own past to embark on an inspirational journey in “The Note,” a Hallmark Original Movie premiering Saturday, December 8 (9pm/8c). Emmy® winner Genie Francis – who helped make ‘Luke and Laura’ a worldwide phenomenon on “General Hospital” – stars, and is joined by veteran comedic actor Ted McGinley (“Hope & Faith”) and Rick Roberts (“Man of the Year”).

Francis stars as Peyton MacGruder, a struggling human interest columnist whose editor warns her to bring her numbers up, or else. Dejected, her only moral support is from her longtime colleague, King Danville (McGinley), who she shares a flirtatious-but-professional relationship with. When a horrific plane crash kills all aboard in the waters near her office, Peyton suddenly finds herself in possession of a scrap of paper containing a hastily written but heartfelt message from one of the passengers to his child. Inspired by the power of the words, Peyton pledges to discover the note’s intended recipient and deliver it by Christmas. Taking her readers along for the journey while trying to stay one step ahead of a TV tabloid reporter (Roberts), Peyton sets out across the country in her search, and unexpectedly confronts her own personal demons in the process.

“The Note” shows how dramatically life can change in an instant, and how it takes mere moments to make a connection: to reach out to someone you care about, to offer words of reconciliation, to express love or regret or admiration. To exhibit the power a few words can have on the lives of others, Hallmark Channel is launching on Monday, October 22 as an outlet for viewers to submit their own notes and answer the question ‘who would you reach out to if you only had a minute?’ The network is asking TV writers to become the first contributors to this unique experiment, which is sure to result in a range of emotions and unexpected results.

“The Note” is a co-production of Hallmark Channel and Lightworks Pictures in association with WildRice Productions. Joel S. Rice (“Shredderman Rules”) and William Spencer Riley are executive producers. Maura Dunbar is the executive in charge of production for Lightworks Pictures. Doug Barr (“To Be Fat Like Me”) is the director. Paul W. Cooper wrote the screenplay based on the novel by Angela Hunt.

Hallmark Channel, owned and operated by Crown Media Holdings, Inc., is a 24-hour basic cable network that provides a diverse slate of high-quality entertainment programming to a national audience of nearly 85 million subscribers. The top tier program service is distributed through more than 5,300 cable systems and communities as well as direct-to-home satellite services across the country. Hallmark Channel consistently ranks among the top 10 ad-supported cable networks in Prime Time and Total Day household ratings and is the nation’s leading network in providing quality family programming. Crown Media also operates a second 24-hour linear channel, Hallmark Movie Channel, and will launch Hallmark Movie Channel HD in first quarter 2008.

Silence Can Sometimes be Golden

While Operation: Genie's Angels continues the fight to bring Genie Francis back to her General Hospital home, things have become quiet on any news of her.  However, that silence can be golden as Genie is now filming the lead role in an original Hallmark movie, 'The Note', to be aired December 8th.  So, while we still await her return to us in Port Charles, Genie has the spotlight through other ventures.

"While General Hospital continues to leave coal in Genie Francis' stocking, the daytime icon has been gifted with a lead role in a Hallmark Channel movie. According to Variety, The Note — premiering Dec. 8 and also starring Ted McGinley — concerns a "lonely hearts" columnist who comes across a letter written to an unidentified child by an ill-fated airline passenger. Francis' editor puts her in charge of tracking down the tot before Christmas, all the while chronicling her (sure-to-be-emotional) quest.

As for McGinley's part in all of this, it would seem that maybe he got cast in a TV series with the aforementioned airplane"

Hallmark writes original 'Note'

Holiday TV movie to star Genie Francis

The Hallmark Channel has commissioned "The Note," a holiday-themed TV movie to star Genie Francis and Ted McGinley and premiere on Dec. 8.

I hope all you Angels are still flying high!! We have not given up the fight nor the flight for Genie!!  We are currently in discussions regarding an online petition for the release of Phelps, as well as one to return Genie to us.  While Operation: Genie's Angels has been wildy successful, we are in the hopes that an online petition may give those of you out there a chance to help when you might have been unable to do so previously.  Perhaps Ms. Francis will not grace our screens on GH again in 2007, but we are still holding out hopes that early 2008 will bring our Angel home to us!!

Also, please check the Mvid page as new videos have been added!

 Keep flying for Genie!!!!

Sorry it's been a few days folks.. life is intervening..

Operation: Genie's Angels is doing a mass mailing to Anne Sweeney and Robert Iger again..not JUST for Genie, but for the state of GH as it is today.. expressing distaste for the Jax storyline, the bed hopping, the disregard for AIDS with all the switching of sexual partners (ie. Maxie-Logan-LuLu), the mob taking over the forefront of GH, the constant day in day out usage of Sonny/Carly/Jason/Liz/Lucky storylines, the LACK of the use of vets on this show (see previous post for number of appearances in the month of August) any and all things about GH of today that you find distasteful, up to and including the blatent disrespect of Genie Francis. If these things don't change, then the plan is a total blackout of GH during sweeps.. The addresses to mail these letters are:

Write to:

Anne Sweeney
Pres. ABC. Disney
500 S. Buena Vista St.
Burbank, CA. 91521

Robert Iger
CEO Walt Disney Co.
500 S. Buena Vista St.
Burbank, CA. 91521

Also, a mass emailing to Daniel Coleridge at SOAPNET - he's always been an open supporter for Genie.. so the emails to him are strictly Genie related.. Operation Genie's Angels to bring Genie home!!


Let's Fly Angels!!! For Genie and for the GH of old!!

What's really going on at GH??

At this point I, personally, am one month GH free..and not missing it! I am, however, annoyed as all get out after reading a post that shows the number of air dates each actor/actress had during the month of August.. now, Tony we know is on vacation, so his absence is excused.. but to see that Jason, Liz, Carly, Sonny etc. have had days numbering in the 20's and to see THIS (the number behind each name indicating how many air dates they had in Aug.):

* George Juarez (Morgan Corinthos) - 6
* Braden Walkes (Cameron Webber) - 4
* Unknown actor playing Jake - 4

* John J. York (Mac Scopio) - 4
* Finola Hughes (ex-Anna Devane) - 4 LAST AIRED 08/24
* Leslie Charleson (Monica Quatermaine) - 2
* Robin Christopher (Skye Quartermaine) - 2
* Stuart Damon (Alan Quartermaine) - 2
* Jane Elliot (Tracy Quartermaine) - 2
* Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis) - 2
* John Ingle (Edward Quartermaine) - 2
* Kin Shriner (Scott Baldwin) - 1
* Jacklyn Zeman (Bobbie Spencer) - 1

The actor who plays Morgan Corinthos, never says a word, the little cutie who plays Cameron, and the BABY who plays Jake get more air dates than Leslie Charleson, Stuart Damon, Jane Elliot, John Ingle, Kin Shriner, Jackie Zeman, Nancy Lee Grahn, Robin Christopher, John J. York, Finola Hughes.. WHAT THE HELL???!!! My gosh people, Leslie, Stuart, Jane, John I., Kin, Jackie and Finola are icons on GH, right up under Tony and Genie!! Robin, Nancy and John J. York are not too far beneath..what is going on over there?

 I will be posting an updated plan for the newest wave to be sent out, hopefully for Friday Sept. 7th. It will not be just a plea for Genie's return, but rather a plea for an entire change of what GH is about. The r*pe storyline with Jax has become quite the uproar, understandabley so, along with everything else that is going on these days on our plan is now to hit Sweeney and Iger again, but with a complete overhaul of GH AND the return of Genie

We've Done It Again, Angels!!!

Once again, Operation: Genie's Angels has graced the Soap Opera Digest's Fan Campaign of the Week! (We last made the July 24th issue)  September 4th issue:

"Genie Francis (ex-Laura, GH) is the inspiration for the campaign spotlighted at .  "Bring Luke's Angel Home," they plead, referring to his pet name for Laura.  It says Operation Genie's Angels has flooded the ABC-Disney Studios in Los Angeles, CA, with thousands of angel-themed items."

The link that SOD posted directs readers to the Press Release sent out by one of our very own Angels, Jhill.  We are still making noise, and still being heard!!  We cannot let up on our mailing and calling!!!!

Keep soaring for Genie!!

Time to Fly Again, Angels!!

From the desk of a fellow Angel:

OK. The CEO of Disney is Bob Iger. Anne Sweeney, Dept. Chairman of ABC , is below him, then comes Brian Frons, head of ABC daytime. If we want to move up the chain of command, then Bob Iger is our man. I suggest that we do a mass mailing on Wed. to Anne Sweeney and Bob Iger. I would suggest that we tell him that we are trying to save a troubled daytime show, GH, that is no longer representative of calling itself a Disney product. It is a show that twists morality, celebrates the mob, and is filled with gratuitous sex and violence. The ratings have dropped to a dangerously low level as the audience expresses its displeasure with this version of this most beloved of daytime dramas. Here is what we want. We want romantic love stories, relevant stories about families, better balance in the use of the ensemble cast, and greater use of veteran talent. We want Genie Francis back on this show immediately. We want the show to correct the immorality it champions so that it will have a broader appeal. In short, we want a new vision for this show. Give us back the "General Hospital" that we want to see. Ask him to give the little world of "GH" some personal attention. We have been writing to Brian Frons and Anne Sweeney all summer with no success. He can make all the difference. Please don't let us down, Mr. Iger!

Write to:

Anne Sweeney
Pres. ABC. Disney
500 S. Buena Vista St.
Burbank, CA. 91521

Robert Iger
CEO Walt Disney Co.
500 S. Buena Vista St.
Burbank, CA. 91521

Both of these people have the same address. That will give us even more impact as we swamp the mailroom. Are we ready to fly once again for Genie, for LnL and for GH?!!! ARE YOU WITH ME? WED. IS D-DAY!!!!!

Angels, it's time to make some noise to drown out the silence!!

The goal is for Wednesday, Aug. 22, but if that's too soon to get it together, then Friday, the 24th.. send your angels, your notes, your letters to Cindi Rinehart.. let her know we want Genie back! She made it very clear that she would pass on sentiments for Genie to TPTB when she interviewed Genie before the Emmy's. We can use that to our advantage, let TPTB know that we are branching out beyond just them!! We are Operation: Genie's Angels and we will be heard!! Also, while sending to Cindi, send to the ABC studios in Genie's name.. on the outside of each envelope make it clear that we want Genie to return to GH! It's a new week, and it's time for a new flight of Angels to be heard!! The silence is indeed deafening, it's time to make some noise of our own!!!

Genie Francis
c/o General Hospital
4151 Prospect Ave
Hollywood CA 90027

Cindi Rinehart
100 4th Ave N.
Seattle, Wash. 98109

Are you ready to fly again, Angels???!!
