ABC lets ‘Port’ out of ‘Hospital’

NEW YORK — ABC has named its new daytime “General Hospital” spinoff “Port Charles,” and will launch it as a two-hour primetime movie on June 1.

“Port Charles,” formerly known under the working title “GH2,” is named for the fictional town that provides the setting for the long-running “General Hospital,” and will feature several characters from the latter series.

“Port Charles” debuts as a Sunday movie at 9 p.m. June 1 before settling into its regular 11 a.m. timeslot the next day. (In many cities, including New York, it will air at 12:30 p.m.) The new series replaces “The City,” which leaves ABC’s schedule on March 28, to be followed by nine weeks of “classic” episodes from the alphabet web’s soap library.
