Get ready to see some changes at ABC Family, the network that brings you “Baby Daddy,” “Pretty Little Liars,” “The Fosters,” “Melissa and Joey,” “Switched at Birth,” “Twisted,” “Young & Hungry” and more: The cable network has just named former NBC exec Karey Burke as the exec vp programming and development.
What do you get when you mix some of televisions hottest stars with instruments? Band From TV, of course! And the musical group, which includes former “All My Children” star Eddie Matos (ex-Ricky Torres; ex-Peter Marquez, “General Hospital”), is slated to rock at yet another charity fundraiser event.
ABC has consistently brought soap-worthy programming to primetime (“Desperate Housewives” and “Revenge,” to name but two), and the schedule for this fall is no different: Intermixing with popular mainstay shows like “The Middle,” “Modern Family,” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” come thirteen brand new shows, a few of which may spur “General Hospital” and other daytime soaps to come to mind! And Wendy Moniz (ex-Mayor Finn, “One Life to Live,” ex-Dinah Marler, “Guiding Light”) strengthens the soap/primetime connection with a role in the new drama, “Betrayal.” Read on to get the exciting details!
Former "All My Children" star T.C. Warner (ex-Kelsey Jefferson) has joined the cast of the NBC pilot "After Hours," which centers on a group of Army doctors who work the night shift in the emergency room at San Antonio Medical Center. The series is described as a cross between "ER" and "Mash," with storylines loosely based on true incidents that have occurred at a real-life hospital in San Antonio, Texas. Warner will portray Amy Budden, a nurse at the hospital.
In the last couple of years ABC Daytime has had a nack of hiring actors and actresses with Broadway backgrounds, most noteably Renee Elise Goldsberry ("The Color Purple"), as Evangeline Williams and Kathy Brier ("Hairspray") as Marcie Walsh on ABC's "One Life To Live." Now the network has hired Broadway star Christian Hoff for a recurring role on "All My Children."
