The ATWT alum (ex-Dusty) has been cast as Dr. Don Masters in the forthcoming, teen-oriented Nick At Night series executive produced by Jill Farren Phelps and starring OLTL alum Brittany Underwood (ex-Langston) and James Franco (ex-Franco, GH). "I get to be a surgeon and he's a player so I’m right in my element!" McCouch laughs. The actor has temporarily relocated to Los Angeles from his farm in upstate New York to film the series, which is the first of its kind and modeled on the Spanish-language telenovelas. "This project is special; it's the first of its kind!" he enthuses. "My first day was around the 24th [of March] and it was spectacular. It's [taped in] the old ALL MY CHILDREN studio!" HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS is set for a June premiere.
