( — SOAPnet launches a new feature called “More Life to Live,” giving fans of the soap “One Life to Live” the opportunity to view deleted scenes from recent episodes. 

Sometimes the best scenes end up on the cutting room floor, never to be seen by again.  Fortunately for fans of “One Life to Live” that is no longer the case.  SOAPnet, the self-proclaimed network for soaps, has launched a new weekly online video clip highlighting selected scenes from previous week’s episodes which failed to make it to our television screens.  The videos are hosted by a member of the cast, include a snazzy new logo (at right), and a slightly revamped rendition of the “One Life to Live” theme music. 

John-Paul Lavoisier (Rex Balsom) hosts the premiere edition of “More Life to Live,” which features three bonus scenes from episodes aired earlier this month.  Included are Starr and Cole discussing why she hasn’t signed the adoption papers, Michael and Marcie proclaiming their love for one another and discussing what baby Hope’s arrival will mean for their lives, and Stacy attempting to teach Rex how to dance.

“One Life to Live” airs weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Check local listings.
