What If... was a ten-part series of short webisodes that aired on and from July 12 to August 30, 2010. They were all directed by then-One Life to Live, and current General Hospital, executive producer Frank Valentini and took place in either an elevator or on an airplane. The shorts explored what it might be like if various characters from General Hospital, One Life to Live, and All My Children met one another. The webisodes were completely separate from the storylines of the three soap operas, and what occurred in the shorts are not considered actual events in the lives of the characters.
