Days of our Lives



It was on Friday, January 25, when Soap Opera Network first reported that Prospect Park's "All My Children" was looking to recast the role of Cassandra Foster, the adopted daughter of Angela Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), who the good doctor found abandoned in a dumpster during her run on ABC’s “The City” back in the mid-1990′s. The character returned as an 18 year-old seeking comfort from mommy dearest in 2008 as played by actress YaYa DaCosta. Since then, the production company has now officially issued a casting call for the role. According to the casting call, the role is for an African-American in her early-mid 20's, "gorgeous with an air of sophistication." The character spent the majority of her time in Paris, France, which has helped her become "worldly, independent and a force to be reckoned with." The role is contract.

In a report outlining the tremendous turnaround daytime soap operas have experienced in recent months, following five years of consistent cancellations, which found numerous soaps ending their runs starting with "Passions" in 2008, "Guiding Light" in 2009, "As The World Turns" in 2010, "All My Children" in 2011 and "One Life to Live" in 2012, Deadline is reporting that CBS and ABC are about to forgo another year of fan heartbreak. According to the sites sources, the networks are expected to continue production of "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "General Hospital" for the foreseeable future. This news would follow in line with NBC's recent announcement that it had renewed "Days of our Lives" through the next television season (2013-2014).
NBC's "Days of our Lives" is continuing its nationwide fan event tour this February when cast members of the series gather throughout Universal Orlando Restort in Florida, including a meet and greet with fans at the parks Universal CityWalk. Cast members scheduled to attend are John Aniston, Camila Banus, Shawn Christian, Casey Deidrick, Galen Gering, Kate Mansi, Eric Martsolf, Peggy McCay, James Scott and Arianne Zucker. The event will be held on Saturday, February 23.
On its Facebook page today, NBC's "Days of our Lives" uploaded a congratulatory card for Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) and William Horton (Chandler Massey), and Nick Fallon (Blake Berris), which revealed the sex of the baby that the town of Salem is currently fighting over.
On Tuesday, January 22, Prospect Park provided soap fans with casting, writing and production updates for its soaps "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." While the company officially confirmed that Susie Bedsow Horgan and Thom Racina would be helming "OLTL," the status of who'd be leading "AMC" remained unclear. Today, Soap Opera Network can confirm that former "Days of our Lives" Head Writer Marlene McPherson has been named Head Writer of Prospect Park's online version of "All My Children."
According to a posting on his facebook page, "One Life to Live" co-head writer Thom Racina let it slip that the online reboot of the series may hit the web as soon as April. "I sincerely hope you will support us and tell your friends and start watching One Life To Live come April!" the writer stated in his message to his followers.
Ratings Report for the Week of January 7-11, 2013
On Monday, January 21, if you are wondering what happened to your favorite daytime dramas ("The Bold and the Beautiful," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital," and "The Young and the Restless") or looking for someone to blame for their not airing, you can thank none other than President Barack H. Obama. On this day, President Obama will be publicly inaugurated for the second and final time after winning against former Governor Mitt Romney in last November's hotly debated presidential election.
With Prospect Park now signing agreements with key unions SAG-AFTRA (actors), the DGA (directors), and the WGA (writers), with an expectation to begin filming episodes of "All My Children" as soon as next month, we wondered who you wanted to see act on the soap when it moves to the web. Your choices can include past actors as well as wishful casting (recast and new characters are welcomed). We also wondered who you want to join the writing team now that thousands of writers are at Prospect Park's disposal courtesy of their agreement with the WGA, as well as who you want to direct episodes of the series. Keep in mind that Agnes Nixon, who created both "AMC" and "One Life to Live," is currently working as a consultant for Prospect Park, according to Foz McDermott, head of production for TOLN (Prospect Park's The Online Network). Also note that actors Jordi Vilasuso (Dr. Griffin Castillo), Darnell Williams (Jesse Hubbard), Debbi Morgan (Dr. Angela Hubbard), Vincent Irizarry (Dr. David Hayward) and Lindsay Hartley (Dr. Cara Castillo) are all confirmed as signing on to return to "AMC" when it moves to the web. Alicia Minshew (ex-Kendall Hart) has reported that she's been approached, while Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery) hope's he can be involved. There's no word yet on the status of Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane), who was the only original cast member from the first season of “AMC” that had remained with the show without interruption from its debut on January 5, 1970 through its final ABC broadcast on September 23, 2011.
Nominees for the 65th Annual DGA Awards were announced earlier this week with "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "One Life to Live" representing the category of Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Daytime Serials for calendar year 2012. CBS soaps "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "The Young and the Restless" were the only daytime dramas without a nomination in the category. "General Hospital" dominated with nominations for directors Larry Carpenter, Scott McKinsey and William Ludel all getting recognition. Jill Mitwell received her ninth directing nomination for the "One Life to Live" episode entitled "Between Heaven and Hell," which aired during the soaps final week on television. Coincidently, the title of the episode is based on the fact that prior to its 43-year run began in 1968, "One Life to Live" was initially titled "Between Heaven and Hell." Albert Alarr was nominated for episode #11,895, which was the episode following the aftermath of explosions that found several of Salem's citizens in life-threatening situations. It was also the episode that found the drama series returning from a 2-week break while NBC broadcast the Summer Olympic games from London.
