“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).
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.
Susan Lucci’s Erica Kane was generally the glue that held “All My Children’s” Kendall Hart Slater (Alicia Minshew) and Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey) together, but this time, the two are teaming up solo! And if you’re a fan of either of the actors, who are known for their real-life silliness and humor that they rarely had the chance to show onscreen in Pine Valley, then you definitely don’t want to miss it.
Ever since word broke that “Desperate Housewives” creator, Marc Cherry, was working on “Devious Maids,” a series that stars “All My Children’s” Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane), fans have been chomping at the bit for more information and an airdate. Well wait no longer: The full cast, synopsis and premiere date for the Lifetime series has officially been released!
Premiering Sunday, June 23, on Lifetime, the drama series follows Ana Ortiz (“Ugly Betty”), Dania Ramirez (“Entourage”), Roselyn Sanchez (“Without a Trace”), Edy Ganem (“Livin’ Loud”) and Judy Reyes (“Scrubs”) as five ambitious maids who, while working for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills (including Lucci as Genevieve Delatour), dream of wealthy lives of their own. This makes for one heck of an upstairs-downstairs scenario, which is complicated by murder and mayhem — just like on “Desperate Housewives,” and just like on daytime soaps!
The OnLine Network has released teasers for the premiere week of “All My Children,” which premieres Monday, April 29 on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes, and things are going to be very juicy!
The anticipation for the online launch of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” has been building for months, and with mere weeks left before the shows’ Monday, April 29 debut on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes, it’s tough for fans to keep a lid on all of that excitement. And it’s about to get even harder to contain the joyous feelings, because several actors from both shows have given some pretty nice hints as to what you can expect once their alter egos reappear in Pine Valley and Llanview!
Z100, New York’s #1 Hit Music Station, is giving soap fans a chance to see the premiere episodes of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” but only if you are a ZVIP member (register here, if you haven’t already).
The casts of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” began their reunions (and for some introductions) on Monday, February 25, when “AMC” began filming scenes for the first time since August 2011, again on Wednesday, February 27 during the Sleepy Hollow Photo Shoot and once more on Monday, March 18 as “OLTL” stepped in front of their cameras for the first time since November 2011. Now The OnLine Network, via Hulu, has released its latest video called “We Are A Family” as the cast and crew discuss the return of the soaps in newly released footage.
For more than 41 years ABC’s “All My Children” entertained millions of viewers each and every weekday, week after week, year after year. Sadly, the network canceled the soap in 2011 and the series aired its then final episode in September of that year. Now, in anticipation of its return on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes on Monday, April 29, The OnLine Network has released a recap of the series as narrated by Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard).
On Wednesday, April 3, the Backstreet Boys gave a shout out to TOLN’s “All My Children” when they tweeted a video of the cast of the soap doing the “Harlem Shake.”
