Before landing “Castle,” Nathan Fillion did a lot of whacky stuff as “One Life to Live’s” Joey Buchanan (including losing his characters virginity to Robin Strasser’s Dorian Lord!), but his latest gig just may take the cake: According to Entertainment Weekly, he’ll be voicing an animated character in Pixar’s “Monsters University,” a prequel to the popular “Monsters, Inc.”!
Gun shots, punches, returning sons and frightened daughters, “this is not some one way mirror looking at the world we’re in,” but it is “All My Children.”
More than three months have gone by since Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network made things official when it announced plans to resume production of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live.” On Friday, January 25, it was announced that Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes would carry both programs for an unheard of online only distribution in America. Unfortunately, Canadians seemed like they would be missing out on the action when the soaps premiered on Monday, April 29. Today, FX Canada announced it would be the only television channel in North America to broadcast both soaps.
Florencia Lozano‘s Tea Delgado is given the honor of saying the first curse word in the newly released “First Day of School” behind the scenes video by The OnLine Network, set to music by Raphael Lake/Ben Fisher with their song “Light It Up,” which was recently uploaded as an iTunes exclusive. In character, Lozano yells at Robert Gorrie‘s Matthew Buchanan on why he let her daughter do…
“Seeing my cast come in one-by-one. Seeing David Canary, seeing Cady McClain, seeing Jill Larson, Debbi Morgan…it just made it all the more real,” says Ginger Smith, executive producer, “All My Children,” in the newly released “First Day of School” video by iTunes set to music by Raphael Lake/Ben Fisher with their song “Light It Up.” The EP and her cast members comment on the show returning to production nearly six weeks after it was first announced by Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network that the soap along with “One Life to Live” would be returning to the airwaves in more than one shape or form once again this spring (later revealed to be April 29, 2013 via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes).
After 45 years on Australian television, The Nine Network has announced that on Friday, April 26 it will broadcast the American daytime soap opera “Days of our Lives” (currently in its 48th year of production) for the final time. In a statement released to TV Tonight, a representive for the network said, “We made a commercial decision not to renew ‘Days of our Lives,’” without revealing which program it will replace the drama series with.
On April 14, 2011, ABC sent shockwaves throughout the daytime industry when it announced it had decided to cancel both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” after 41 and 43 years on the air, respectively. Now two years to the day since that announcement, both soaps are in the process of not only returning to television but also to the world wide web courtesy of Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network. With just two weeks to go before launch, we hope you’re ready for a new kind of soap and a new way to watch soaps.

Aaron D. Spears returns as Justin on Friday, April 19. He was last seen on January 7.
Zack Conroy and Todd McKee are back as Oliver and Jake on Wednesday, April 17. They were both last seen on March 15. Look for Conroy and his character to also crossover to Genoa City this May.
Drea de Matteo may be best known for her roles as “Sons of Anarchy’s” Wendy Teller and “The Soprano’s” Adriana La Cerva, but soap opera fans probably recognize her as “Desperate Housewives’” tough-as-nails neighbor, Angie Bolen. And now, the Queens-born actress is set to play in yet another drama-filled adventure: Lifetime’s upcoming film, “Stalkers.”
