Gloria Monty, the producer-director of ABC TVs' 1970s-1980s daytime serial "General Hospital" is the same person credited as producer-director on the NBC's 1969-1972 daytime serial "Bright Promise." Monty's screen credit for "Bright Promise," as producer, and as director was Gloria Monte. The New York City based Doris and Hank Hurlsey creative-writing team, producing the NBC TV West Coast weekday "Bright Promise" dramatic series, hired Gloria Monte to both develop, produce and direct their project in June, 1969. The Bright Promise series airing on the network in the afternoon at 3:30 P.M. against ABC's One Life to Live and CBS' The Edge of Night. Gloria relocated to the West Coast, establishing a rented residence in West Hollywood. After establishing the NBC drama series, Gloria and her husband Robert O' Byrne purchased property in Palm Springs, finding a million dollar fixer-upper two story hacienda with polished red Spanish 24" square tile floors throughout. The Spanish mansion was built in the early '40s, smack in the heart of the 'old Palm Springs gentry enclave.' Gloria changed her last name spelling from Mont'e' to Mont'y' when she began producing-and-directing ABC's "General Hospital." See more »
