Article by Tina Sloane (Lillian) about missing Guiding Light!

P&G Productions said they're still trying to figure out a feasible way to bring Guiding Light back, but then they said they're working on bringing GL back as a web series! So it's unlikely that GL will be coming back to TV, but there is no reason why GL couldn't come back as a web series! We just need to let P&G know we'd watch! They could begin production right now using the cast members who are available, and then other cast members could return later.
Everyone please send e-mails asking for GL as a web series to: 
Jeannie Tharrington, Procter & Gamble Productions External Relations:  tharrington.jm@pg.com
Lucas Watson, Global Team Leader, Digital Business Strategy at P&G:  watson.l@pg.com
Dave Knox, Brand Manager, Digital Innovation at P&G Productions:  knox.d@pg.com
Write your own e-mail if you'd like, or if you'd prefer to just copy, paste, and send a pre-written e-mail (which you may edit as you see fit), you can find one here.
Please be sure to include your age in your email because we need to let P&G know that people of all ages love GL!
LET'S GET GL BACK AS A WEB SERIES!
If you'd like to read the whole story about what the P&G executives have said, click here!
