Soon after Soap Opera Network reported that TOLN had revealed new logos for both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” the production company has now revealed more new logos. As seen on their social media sites, Twitter and Facebook, “AMC’s” initial logo now has life put into it instead of a plain white background, while “OLTL” is now at the center between heaven (black) and hell (red). The theme for “One Life” looks to play off of the fact that the series was originally supposed to be titled “Between Heaven and Hell” before ABC settled on the finished product way back when.
With six Outstanding Lead Actress Daytime Emmy Awards under her belt — or rather, on her shelf — “One Life to Live’s” Erika Slezak (Victoria Lord) is one woman to be respected. So when she says TOLN’s version of the iconic show she’s been a part of for more than 40 years is going to be stellar, you’d damn well better believe her!
The cast of “All My Children” shot their first Prospect Park episodes the week of February 25 and the week of March 4, and now it’s “One Life To Live’s” turn: The show begins taping in the home it shares with “AMC” on Monday, March 22. Filled with excitement, the soaps’ stars have taken to Twitter to share everything from their thoughts on the new execs to sneak peeks at the very first scripts!
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.”
As expected, The OnLine Network (TOLN) has released new logos for “All My Children” and “One Life to Live.” New opening sequences (length TBD) are also expected to be released when the shows debut on Monday, April 29 at 12:00 PM ET on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes.
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. The character is described as a ” brilliant young reporter who moves to Llanview to work for publisher, Victoria Lord (Erica Slezak) at Llanview’s newspaper, The Banner.” Soap Opera Network first brought you word on the character being part of the Banner family back on February 19. According to TOLN, the character is a friend of Matthew Buchanan (Robert Gorrie) and Danielle Manning (Kelley Missal).
Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network (aka TOLN) formally revealed its new re-designed logo. The logo is a step up from the original one Soap Opera Network first revealed back on February 18. Styled in a manner in which viewers will always know that TOLN is online and ready for network quality viewing of its programming, the Prospect Park created network will make its mark when it premieres “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” on Monday, April 29 at 12:00 PM ET on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes.
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).
With “All My Children” already under production and “One Life to Live” set to begin next week, soap fans have been anxiously awaiting their much anticipated online debuts. After months of speculating, Prospect Park finally reveals the date both shows will debut on Hulu and iTunes. Starting Monday, April 29 at noon ET, fans will get their first glimpse of Pine Valley and Llanview 2.0.
“All My Children” makes its online debut this spring, and Prospect Park is pulling out all of the stops to make sure it’s a success. Several actors have tweeted that the new writing for the show is outstanding, and fans were happy to hear that some of their beloved actors — Eden Riegel (Bianca Montgomery), Alicia Minshew (Kendall Hart Slater) and Cady McClain (Dixie Cooney) — were headed back to the show. But could Josh Duhamel (Leo DuPres) be another familiar face headed back to Pine Valley?
