As part of their partnership with Universal Music Group, which allows The OnLine Network (TOLN) to "provide compelling recorded music and songs, and artist cross-promotion and integration, to a powerful new audience," Prospect Park has cast Jessica "Jessie" Malkouti from Jessie and the Toy Boys in a role on "One Life to Live" as, what else, an aspiring musician.
CBS’ acclaimed daytime show, “The Talk,” joined the long list of outlets celebrating “The Young and the Restless’” 40th anniversary with a special episode featuring some of the sudser’s most popular stars — and it was definitely a not-to-be missed event for fans of the long-running show.
Ok, all you Roger Howarth (Todd Manning) fans: There may be a lot of brouhaha surrounding the beloved soap star’s status with “General Hospital” at the moment, but you can breath a sigh of relief when it comes to “One Life to Live”: He’s definitely making an appearance in Llanview, and here are the new photos to prove it!

Soap Opera Network has learned that television newcomer Caitlainne Rose Gurreri has landed the heavily recurring role of Eileen on TOLN's "All My Children." The actress is understood to be featured alongside Sal Stowers (Cassandra Foster) in a ripped from the headlines like storyline that sources say finds the characters of Jesse Hubbard (Darnell Williams) and Zach Slater (Thorsten Kaye) working together to bring down Vlad and Yuri, who are involved in a sex trafficking ring.
As previously reported, beginning Friday, March 29 at 10:00 PM ET/PT and running through Monday, April 1 at 12:00 AM ET/PT (Sunday night/Monday morning), SOAPnet will be airing a 50-hour marathon of 50 classic episodes from the 50 years of ABC’s “General Hospital.”
As the old saying goes, a happy employee is a productive employee. And that must be a mantra Prospect Park believes in. According to the actors who have signed on to the serial dramas, “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” the production company — headed by Jeff Kwatinetz and Richard Frank — has batted a thousand when it comes to being respectfully in charge. And the end result, as the performers preview, is pure magic.
On Monday, March 18, Soap Opera Network was the first to report that Hulu had released a new premiere trailer for TOLN's "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." We've now since learned that Prospect Park hired Catalano Productions (@TorreCatalano) to produce the pre-launch material with Mad Machine Films (@MadMachineFilms on Twitter) signed on as the masterminds behind the editing of the "Living in America" themed video.
