They portray "twins" on NBC's "Days of our Lives," although Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady) and Greg Vaughan (Eric Brady) are anything but that in Hallmark Channel's "Second Chances." Premiering Saturday, July 27, the TV movie tells the story of 911 operator Jenny McLean (Sweeney), who along with her two kids, Luke (Benjamin Stockham) and Elsie (Charlotte Labadie), take in firefighter Jeff Sinclair (Vaughan) after he is injured on the job and the family is in desperate need of extra income as a result of Jenny’s work hours having been recently cut.

"For 2 years u posted, tweeted, Facebooked me..I heard you. Starting 7/15, we're having a summer fling w/ the soaps!" read Oprah Winfrey's tweet to her more 19 million Twitter followers shortly after news of OWN picking up both "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" for a limited engagement this summer. Both series begin airing Monday, July 15, with "AMC" airing in its old 1:00 PM ET timeslot and now PT as well, while "OLTL" will air at 3:00 PM ET/PT.
In a tweet by Doug Davidson (Paul Williams), the actor revealed that CBS' "The Young and the Restless" has placed a placard on dressing room 41C, which was the late Jeanne Cooper's (Katherine Chancellor).

On Monday, June 17, in honor of "Days of our Lives" taking home its first Emmy Award in 35 years for Outstanding Drama Series during the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards the night before, the NBC Daytime drama series celebrated its Emmy win in style with cast and crew partaking in champagne. In addition to celebratory words from executive producer Ken Corday, NBC provided the series with a framed congratulatory document that read "Congratulations!! We are so proud.

Prospect Park's The OnLine Network announced earlier today its decision to release all weekly episodes of both "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" on Mondays, instead of the previously scheduled Mondays and Wednesdays for "AMC" and Tuesdays and Thursdays for "OLTL," beginning Monday, July 1. Jeff Kwatinetz, co-founder, Prospect Park, tells Soap Opera Network via email, "The only difference is greater availability," when asked how the change affects upcoming airdates of both soaps. "If [viewers] still want to watch one ep each day, or just an 'AMC' ep every Monday or Wed, there will be a new one there. If they want to watch the full weeks shows at once starting Monday they will all be there. This is completely giving MORE options to viewers. How could that be a bad thing?"
Beginning Monday, July 1, Prospect Park's The OnLine Network will begin releasing brand new episodes of both "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" each week on Mondays. This means that instead of waiting for each Monday and Wednesday for a brand new "AMC" or Tuesday and Thursday for a brand new "OLTL," the weeks worth of shows for both soaps will be made available each week on Mondays.
As previously reported, TVGN has picked up the same-day airing rights of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" beginning with the Monday, July 1 episode. This means that this week is the final week in which fans of the SOAPnet airings will be able to catch the drama series on the never ending defunct cable network.
