“I heard you! You posted, you tweeted, you Facebook’d, and I listened and now they’re here!” exclaims Oprah Winfrey in a new promo released by The OnLine Network and OWN promoting the launch of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” which will have a summer fling with the cable network beginning Monday, July 15. “Pine Valley, Llanview, Victoria Lord, Adam Chandler, Angie and Jesse…ALL of your favorites. We’re having a summer fling with the soaps,” she continued.
While both soaps will be launching on OWN beginning Monday, July 15, the network will not air them in their regularly scheduled timeslots upon launch. OWN has scheduled back-to-back half-hour episodes starting with the first three episodes of “AMC,” which will air from 12:00-1:30 PM ET/PT, with the third episode repeating at 1:30 PM ET/PT. From 2:00 PM-3:30 PM, “OLTL” will air its first three episodes with the third episode repeating at 3:30 PM ET/PT.
Episodes of “AMC” will then begin airing in its regularly scheduled timeslot at 1:00 PM ET/PT beginning Tuesday, July 16. “OLTL” will begin its regularly scheduled run at 3:00 PM ET/PT on that day as well. Both soaps will air Mondays through Thursdays for 10 weeks (40 episodes), but it is expected that if the runs are successful the network might pick them up for a longer term. Currently only episodes that have already aired via Hulu, Hulu Plus, iTunes and iTunes Canada are scheduled to air on OWN. Brand new episodes of “AMC,” “OLTL” and “MORE” will continue being distributed every Monday via the online platforms.
