ABC Daytime Sets Fourth of July Schedule

Monday, June 20, 2011 4:02 PM EDT
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- On July 4th, 2011, the United State of America will celebrate the 235th Anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in which the United States officially declared its independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Like on Memorial Day, to deflect bad ratings due to the thousands of people out enjoying the federal holiday, ABC Daytime has chosen to air encore presentations. This is despite the fact "All My Children" is going off the air on ABC in September, and "One Life to Live" is going off the air on ABC in January 2012. Fittingly, ABC Daytime will use this particular day of celebration better known as "Independence Day" to reflect back on some major ABC Daytime characters declaring themselves free from certain constraints. The following is a list of the encore presentations chosen to...

    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- On May 19, 2011, Dena Higley was fired as head writer of "Days of our Lives" and was replaced by Darrell Ray Thomas, Jr. and Marlene McPherson.   So in June's edition of "Inside The Writers Room," I have a few items to report.  Jeanne Marie Ford moves from the breakdown writer to script editor replacing Fran Myers.   Breakdown writer Lisa Seidman was also let go from the show.  So taking Ford and Seidman's spot on the breakdown writing team are Nancy Williams Watt and Elizabeth Snyder.  Lastly, David A. Levinson joins as a script writer. Note: These changes were made before Gary Tomlin's firing.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Jason Tam reveals on Twitter that both he and Brittany Underwood may be returning to "One Life to Live" as former lovebirds Markko Rivera and Langston Wilde before the show is scheduled to wrap production in November. Tam was asked by a fan if there "Is any chance that Markko and Langston will make a return to Llanview BEFORE 'OLTL' ends?!?," to which the actor responded simply "You bet!" The response was short, but enough to give fans of both actors reason to hope that they may step foot in Llanview at least once more before the fictional soap town fades into daytime history. Underwood, meanwhile, has remained silent on the possible return to "One Life" on her Twitter page. Brittany Underwood originated the role of Langston in in 2006. She exited the role on April 12 of this year after the show chose not to renew her contract....

‘OLTL’ June Minor Casting Notes

Sunday, June 19, 2011 4:19 PM EDT
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Some Llanview casting odd and ends and comings and goings for the month of June. With David Fumero (Cristian Vega) on his way out of Llanview, rumors are swirling that his former onscreen co-star and reel life brother Kamar de los Reyes (Antonio Vega) and niece Jamie Vega (Saoirse Scott) may return for a brief visit. The speculation was fueled in part due to this picture of the 10-year-old Scott posing "on the set of 'OLTL'" with Shenell Edmonds (Destiny). However, according to Scott's official website, she attended a couple of fan events last fall with Edmonds and several of her former "One Life" co-stars (and apparently also visited with some of them at the studio), which might help explain the photo, especially since both Scott and Edmonds are wearing coats in the image. Furthermore, de los Reyes has remained silent on the issue on his Twitter page. Speaking...
