ALL THINGS RELATED

Prospect Park today announced an initial listing of writers, producers and cast members who have signed on for the online reboots of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." The company has formally announced Susie Bedsow Horgan and Thom Racina as head writers of "OLTL." Thorsten Kaye and Jill Larson bring the "AMC" cast count to 7 stars signed. "OLTL" adds Erika Slezak, Tuc Watkins, Kassie DePaiva, Florencia Lozano, Melissa Archer, Hillary B. Smith, Kelley Missal, Josh Kelly and Andrew Trischitta, who join previously signed Robert S. Woods, Robin Strasser and Jerry verDorn. With the exception of Strasser, Woods, Smith and Watkins, Prospect Park has secured most of the actors signed on during the first round of plans to reboot the soaps back in 2011.
"One Life to Live" may be only weeks away from ending production on its ABC Daytime run, but that isn't stopping the show from introducing a new character. Beginning early next month, Teresa Patel joins the cast in the recurring role of Vimal's (Nick Choksi) younger sister Neela.
Saundra Santiago becomes the latest "One Life to Live" seldom used recurring cast member to finally getting some much needed screen time when her onscreen persona, Carlotta Vega, interacts with a familiar face at the family diner, and a few other new and familiar faces pop up in Llanview.
