Yesterday the Lifetime Network announced a premiere date and cast for the sequel to its successful adaptation of V.C. Andrews' iconic (and controversial!) book "The Flowers in the Attic."
It's not often that you'll see the big four networks - ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox - working together, but this past Thursday, representatives from each network put the competition aside for a good cause.
Sonny Corinthos may have his hands full on "General Hospital" lately, but his portrayer, Maurice Benard, managed to find the time to film a movie last year!

Actor James Rebhorn, perhaps best known to soap fans as as the abusive stepfather of Beth Raines on "Guiding Light," passed away in his home this past Friday afternoon at the age of 65.
Former "Guiding Light" and "All My Children" alum Paige Turco (ex-Dinah Marler, "GL"; ex-Lanie Cortlandt Rampal, "AMC") may have not one, but two big hits on her hands! In addition to recently being cast on the upcoming "NCIS" spin-off, Turco also stars on the post-apocalyptic drama "The 100", which just debuted on the CW last night.
Former "One Life to Live" and "Who's the Boss?" star Judith Light has played the love interest of some pretty famous actors before, but it looks like she's about to share the screen with her biggest co-star yet. Light has just signed on to play Henry Winkler's wife in the ABC comedy pilot "The Winklers," based on Winkler's real-life relationship with his son-in-law.According to Deadline.com, Light will play Tita Winkler, the "fabulous, fierce momma bear of the family."
