Texas!

Nope. She was still on. She left around November 1981. This was likely the spring of 1981. Ryan and Ginny were in love but their relationship was complicated by Barrett's return. Barrett was psychologically unstable. I think Barrett was written out in June 1981 though resurfaced briefly a few months later. Interestingly, Stephen Newman also played Mike Marshall, the father of the Marshall kids when Texas was introduced on Another World in the summer of 1980. Mike committed suicide.

OK, thanks for correcting me and identifying who was in the promo. I could've sworn that was Beverlee, but had she left by this point?

Gail Kobe was producer. I think Dorothy Ann Purser and Samuel Ratcliffe were head writers. Pam Long took over as head writer in the last months of the series in 1982.

Thanks again!! Were Pam Long and Gail Kobe at the helm by this time?

When TBS started airing the show in half hour segments in 1983 at 11.35 am following The Catlins, there was talk that if it proved to be a success, the show might go back into production.

Did that run start with the first episode? If deemed a success, how would the reruns mesh with new episodes?

The Catlins was reported as rating a 1.2 and P&G were looking for similar numbers for Texas.

Probably, a lot of the old Who's Who on Soaps[an annual magazine] in the 80s would say actors appeared on other soaps without character names. I think a lot of them may have been under fives.

Does anyone know if these actors really appeared on Texas on the Stella Stanton [Virginia Graham] show:

Kaye Ballard

Katherine Helmond

Willard Scott

Rip Taylor

Phyllis Diller

and...Dick Cavett

I read an article that they were scheduled to appear, but I had never known about the show within a show having a guest panel.

Thanks in advance to anyone with info!

I don't recall them appearing on Texas. I did a The Google search and came across a number of articles about their appearances. So maybe it did happen.
