Soap Opera Digest is reporting that soap alum Kale Browne will be heard in upcoming episodes of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" as he portrays the role of a radio DJ on the soap.The magazine reports that Browne's voice will be heard on the Tuesday, February 12 and Wednesday, February 13 episodes of the drama series. The actor isn't expected to appear in the actual episodes.
Soap Opera Socialite Productions posted a video on their YouTube page from "All My Children's" Jill Larson (Opal Cortlandt), who shared her excitement in returning to the world of Pine Valley after nearly a two year absence. "We're all very excited about the possibilites that await all of us, and getting together again and dusting off our old beloved characters and telling new stories that Agnes has been dreaming up since we've been off the air," said the actress.
In a report outlining the tremendous turnaround daytime soap operas have experienced in recent months, following five years of consistent cancellations, which found numerous soaps ending their runs starting with "Passions" in 2008, "Guiding Light" in 2009, "As The World Turns" in 2010, "All My Children" in 2011 and "One Life to Live" in 2012, Deadline is reporting that CBS and ABC are about to forgo another year of fan heartbreak. According to the sites sources, the networks are expected to continue production of "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "General Hospital" for the foreseeable future. This news would follow in line with NBC's recent announcement that it had renewed "Days of our Lives" through the next television season (2013-2014).
Earlier today we reported on word that Prospect Park would not be airing online episodes of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" on TOLN/The OnLine Network, as had originally been expected, following today's announcement by the company that Hulu, the green internet hub owned by The Walt Disney Company, Comcast and News Corp., had acquired digital distribution rights to both series via Hulu's subscription and free-to-view platforms. In a blog posting on its website, Hulu clarified that news report.
As previously reported, actor Jimmy Deshler has joined the cast of "General Hospital" in the role of Rafe, who is believed to be the son of Alison Barrington and Caleb Morley as a result of their sexual encounter occurring towards the end of ABC's long canceled “Port Charles.”
Per recent comments made by TV Line's Matt Webb Mitovich, it looks like Prospect Park's plans to air new episodes of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" via its pending TOLN.com and TheOnLineNetwork.com web portal may not be happening after all. This is apparently as a result of today's announcement that Hulu and its Hulu Plus subdivision, along with Apple's iTunes, will be the digital places to be plugged (or unplugged if you have wireless capabilities) into for fans of the soap operas. It was initially expected that with the Hulu and Apple deals in place, TOLN.com and TheOnLineNetwork.com would be used for additional viewing opportunities as was done with the shows when they aired on ABC.com and Hulu.com.
