Those fans who were a little concerned with the news that Prospect Park’s “All My Children” will be racier, edgier and filled with profanity when it debuts on iTunes, Hulu and Hulu Plus on Monday, April 29 may be able to breathe a slight sigh of relief: According to Darnell Williams (Jesse Hubbard) and Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard), the risqué language started strong, but has since taken a bit of a backseat!
“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).
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).
“We’re not in the condo anymore,” says Debbi Morgan (Dr. Angela Hubbard) on the new set of “All My Children.” The actress is part of a behind the scenes video recently uploaded by Hulu to Hulu.com, and also available to subscribers of Hulu Plus for HD viewing, in anticipation of The OnLine Network premiere of “AMC” and sister soap “One Life to Live” scheduled for Monday, April 29 via the aforementioned Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes.
If you haven’t yet had a chance to meet some of your favorite “All My Children” stars via the very popular A Tribute to Pine Valley tour, then you’re in luck: Three more dates and locations have been added to the successful tour!
You can catch Walt Willey (Jackson Montgomery), Alicia Minshew (Kendall Hart Slater), Vincent Irizarry (David Hayward), Darnell Williams (Jesse Hubbard), Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard) and Jacob Young (ex-JR Chandler, now “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Rick Forrester) on Saturday, May 4, at the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts in Jacksonville, Florida, then again on Sunday, May 5, at the Studio Gallery at Fontanel in Nashville, Tennessee, and yet again on Sunday, May 19, at the House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio!
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.
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!
When “All My Children” stars originally signed on to the A Tribute to Pine Valley tour, they viewed it as their last opportunity to say heartfelt, personal goodbyes to their most loyal fans. But now, with the show set to debut on TOLN on Monday, April 29, they’re looking at the tour dates as chances to party! And guess what? Two more celebratory Tribute dates have been added!
You can catch Walt Willey (Jackson Montgomery), Alicia Minshew (Kendall Hart Slater), Vincent Irizarry (David Hayward), Darnell Williams (Jesse Hubbard), Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard) and Jacob Young (ex-JR, now “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Rick Forrester) on Saturday, April 27, at the Sarasota Opera House in Sarasota, Florida, as well as on Sunday, April 28, at the Seminole Casino in Coconut Creek, Florida.
There are lots of questions surrounding the Monday, April 29 launch of “All My Children” on The OnLine Network (TOLN), the main one being, “What can we expect?” Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard), Darnell Williams (Jesse Hubbard) and David Canary (Adam Chandler) took that question by storm during the show’s first official photo shoot in February, and while they couldn’t reveal storyline details, the three stars did open up about the high number of new and young faces on the show, how the shorter 30-minute time slot will affect their acting and how they feel about the women who hold Pine Valley’s future in their hands.
Amongst the news of TOLN setting a premiere date for both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” the network also formally announced that Roger Howarth had joined the cast of the online reboot of “OLTL” as his character Todd Manning. Previously, Soap Opera Network had reported the news through official word by representatives for the actor and via “OLTL” co-star Erika Slezak (Victoria Lord Buchanan).
Howarth will begin filming at the Stamford, CT studio of the soap on Monday, March 18. He will join the full cast of the soap for four weeks before returning to ABC’s “General Hospital.” It is understood that “OLTL” will complete filming its first batch of episodes (reportedly 40) on Friday, April 12. “AMC” will resume production on Monday, April 15, according to “AMC’s” Debbi Morgan (Angela Hubbard).
