John Stamos Developing Drama About Daytime Soaps' 1980s Heyday

Ryan Schwartz

John Stamos is giving us the daytime TV exposé we’ve all been waiting for.

The TV vet has partnered with uber producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron to develop a drama series set in the world of 1980s soap operas, Deadline reports.

Loosely based on Stamos’ early days on General Hospital, the potential series — which will be shopped around to cable — is said to explore how a decade defined by Reaganomics, greed, excess, indulgence and materialism shaped what went on behind-the-scenes of TV’s most popular soap operas. It will be told through the eyes of a young man thrust into stardom as he attempts to navigate temptations of sex, drugs and fame.

As you’ll recall, a then-teenaged Stamos cut his acting teeth playing Blackie Parrish on GH in the early ’80s. He exited the soap in 1984, three years before landing his breakout role as Jesse Katsopolis on Full House.

In addition to his forthcoming role on Scream Queens, Stamos continues to recur on Fuller House, which recently wrapped production on Season 2. He previously collaborated with Zadan and Meron on the 2000 miniseries Beach Boys: An American Family and the 2002 TV-movie Martin and Lewis.

Would you tune in for a drama based on what was going on behind-the-scenes of your favorite soaps?
