Exactly thirty days from today, fans all across the world (okay, just America…for now!) will be rejoicing as “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” return with brand spanking new episodes. On their Twitter pages, @allmychildren and @onelifetolive, Cady McClain (Dixie Cooney, “AMC”) and Corbin Bleu (Jeffey King, “OLTL”) are the featured stars counting down to 30 days from the launch of their respective soaps on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes. Just in case you hate math like I do, that’s Monday, April 29, 2013!
When “One Life to Live” returns next month, things won’t exactly be going well for at least one longtime Llanview resident. According to “OLTL” Co-Head Writer Thom Racina, technology and tough economic times may have finally caught up with the town’s matriarch Victoria Lord (Erika Slezak) and her family’s newspaper The Banner.
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. However, it isn’t only the regular cast and crew that are spilling secrets and posting photos. Several of the show’s dayplayers and extras have also started talking about their recent set-side experiences.
“One Life to Live’s” longest serving cast member Erika Slezak (Viki) has released a new statement on her official website saying that Prospect Park is “working very hard to get everything right” for the online version of the long-running soap and says that cast and crew are “hoping for our former audience to return and continue to enjoy and for our new audience to get to know us.”
The Llanview teen scene heats up as Australia’s hottest DJs, sisters Mim and Liv Nervo stop by Llanview to spin some records at the fictional town’s trendiest new nightclub and hang out with several of “One Life to Live’s” younger cast members.
‘One Life’ On Set
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!
Earlier this evening Corbin Bleu (Jeffrey King) tweeted to his more than 980,000 followers, “If @onelifetolive gets 5,000 followers today, we’ll tweet out a picture of me on my first day on set!” Soon afterward the series reached its goal and then some (total stands at 5,170 as of this writing). As a result, “One Life to Live” kept its promise when it tweeted out a pic of Bleu with his character holding his cell phone (see image on the right).
As previously reported, singer/actor Corbin Bleu has joined the cast of TOLN’s “One Life to Live” in the contract role of Jeffrey King. The actor released the following statement to his 338,000+ Facebook followers:
“I’m very excited about joining the “One Life to Live’ family and beginning a new chapter in the shows long history. I can’t wait to meet the entire talented cast & crew and begin filming at ‘One Life to Live.”
TOLN’s “One Life to Live” announced today that “High School Musical” star Corbin Bleu (as Chad Danforth) has joined its cast in the contract role of Jeffrey King.
