Daytime soap opera airing on Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet.
Fans of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” have known for a while now that The OnLine Network planned to include weekly recap episodes of both shows once they began airing on iTunes, Hulu and Hulu Plus on Monday, April 29, and now the web network has officially announced it. Beginning Friday, May 3, and continuing every Friday following episodes thereafter, TOLN will be offering original weekly recap shows, “MORE One Life to Live” and “MORE All My Children.”
Fans of “All My Children” will get a blast from the past when opening the May issue of Marie Claire, which features a spread on Jordana Brewster, who formerly played Maria Santos and Mateo Santos’ younger sister, Anita, and now plays Elena Ramos on the primetime soap “Dallas.” And believe it or not, the actress opens up about how she’s dead set on never allowing her children to go into the acting business!
The OnLine Network’s “All My Children” has a new logo, a new home, new actors and of course, a new theme song. Fans have already been privy to details on the first three fresh and shiny elements on that list, and low and behold, it looks like we may have all been subtly introduced to the last one, as well!
As it gears up to launch “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” on Monday, April 29, Hulu has created an exclusive Twitter account just for soap operas as well as a new Tumblr account to keep fans in the loop of all things Pine Valley and Llanview. The website has also posted videos on the various ways fans can utilize Hulu for the viewing pleasure with an entire portfolio of programming from ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, The CW, Nickelodeon, MTV and much more.
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).
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.
