With just over one month to go until “One Life to Live” makes its online debut, more storyline details and behind-the-scenes pictures are slowly beginning to emerge.

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.”
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 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 David Jakubovic‘s Mad Machine Films (@MadMachineFilms on Twitter) signed on as the masterminds behind the editing of the “Living in America” themed video.
On Wednesday, March 20, Alex Kruglov, Head of Content Acquisition, Hulu, visited the set of the internet hub’s recent acquisition of TOLN’s “One Life to Live.” In a posting on Twitter, Kruglov said, “Holy cow everything looks impressive. Excited to launch it and
#AMC on 4/29.” The tweet was accompanied by a behind the scenes photo that shows actress Florencia Lozano in a scene as Tea Delgado in a beautiful new set presumed to be her characters newly re-designed digs. It was previously feared by many fans that both “OLTL” and “All My Children” would go the route of Peapack, NJ as “Guiding Light” did in its latter years in order to save on production costs.
Dorothy’s ruby red slippers are to movie buffs what “All My Children’s” Cluck Cluck Chicken Shack suit is to soap opera buffs: Memorable, iconic and totally museum worthy. And thanks to a recent partnership between The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and the National Academy of Televisions Arts & Sciences, things like Tad Martin’s (Michael E. Knight) bright yellow suit — along with many other daytime TV artifacts and memorabilia — just may be appearing alongside those “Wizard Of Oz” slippers!
Longtime fans of “All My Children’s” Rebecca Budig would love to see her return as Jackson Montgomery’s (Walt Willey) firecracker daughter, Greenlee Smythe. But will the busy actress make a return appearance to Pine Valley as the character she originated back in 1999?
Earlier today, a fan asked the beloved beauty via Twitter if she’s been approached for the reboot of the classic show. Her response: “Yes and no. Not for the next round of shooting.”
A soap is a soap is a soap. Or is it? That’s the question the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences committee is rumored to be discussing at their next meeting, where the fate of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” will be determined.
“OLTL” is eligible to compete in this year’s Emmy competition because the show aired episodes during calendar year 2012 (the soap aired its ABC finale in January of that year). But what about next year? Now that both soaps will be airing exclusively online, will they be permitted to compete against “General Hospital,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Days of our Lives,” and “The Young and the Restless”?
You’ve heard the buzz about what to expect when The OnLine Network debuts “All My Children” (via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes) on Monday, April 29, and now you can see for yourself what the classic soap is going to look like when it hits its new web home!
