On Facebook, “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” fans/followers were treated to a surprising, but effective, campaign to remind viewers that both soaps return with all new episodes beginning Monday, April 29 via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes.
They say sometimes life imitates art, and “One Life to Live’s” Tuc Watkins‘ (David Vickers) latest reveal sounds a whole lot like his former “Desperate Housewives” stint as Bob Hunter: He’s a gay dad! And in an interview airing on Hallmark’s “Marie,” he’ll be opening up for the very first time about his exciting new journey into parenthood.
CBS’s “The Bold and the Beautiful” has knocked out the competition and come in at an impressive first place at the Monte Carlo Television Festival’s International TV Audience Awards in the “Telenovela/Soap Opera” category for the past seven — count ‘em, SEVEN — years in a row. But will the beloved sudser be able to grab ahold of the organization’s award once more?
As evidenced by the first episode of “One Life to Live,” life in Llanview has continued long after the soap ended its ABC run in January 2012. No, we don’t mean that the soap has jumped ahead five years as sister soap “All My Children” has done in order to progress its storylines, we mean characters didn’t just walk upstairs to the attic and kept silent and still while the millions of fans mourned their reported last breaths. Scheduled to re-launch on Monday, April 29 via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes, the soap is about to take things higher with the opening of Blair’s new night club, Shelter, as the backdrop to getting things moving once more.
