If you think you’re excited about the return of “One Life to Live,” which debuts on iTunes, Hulu and Hulu Plus on Monday, April 29, wait until you hear how excited these goats are! Uhhhh… Nope, that’s not a typo, folks. In The OnLine Network’s latest teaser for the sudser, goats are front and center.
UPDATE 4:35 PM ET: In a statement released to Soap Opera Network, Prospect Park said, “We want to thank Susie for her contribution to One Life to Live. She is moving on and we wish her well. We have an extraordinary writer’s room at the show and we are looking forward to fans seeing what they’ve been up to when we launch on April 29th.”
PREVIOUS: Soap Opera Network has learned exclusively that Susie Bedsow Horgan has decided to depart TOLN’s “One Life to Live” as Co-Head Writer. It is understood that Bedsow Horgan has opted to leave the soap for personal reasons and informed Prospect Park of her decision late last week.
Z100, New York’s #1 Hit Music Station, is giving soap fans a chance to see the premiere episodes of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” but only if you are a ZVIP member (register here, if you haven’t already).
The casts of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” began their reunions (and for some introductions) on Monday, February 25, when “AMC” began filming scenes for the first time since August 2011, again on Wednesday, February 27 during the Sleepy Hollow Photo Shoot and once more on Monday, March 18 as “OLTL” stepped in front of their cameras for the first time since November 2011. Now The OnLine Network, via Hulu, has released its latest video called “We Are A Family” as the cast and crew discuss the return of the soaps in newly released footage.
Production on the new ABC Family drama series, “The Fosters” starts today, meaning Sherri Saum (ex-Keri Reynolds, “One Life to Live;” ex-Vanessa Hart, “Sunset Beach”) is back to work! But just what will the actress be doing under executive producer Jennifer Lopez’ command?
Turns out, the actress is playing opposite Teri Polo, and both women play gay mothers raising a mix of multi-ethnic foster and biological children. Since the show takes a hard look at gay marriage and parenting within a groundbreaking premise that addresses the foster care system, mixed racial families and teen issues, it’s sure to be a topic of discussion as the Supreme Court rules on the legalities of the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8 ban on gay marriage next month.
“One Life to Live’s” Kamar de los Reyes (ex-Antonio Vega) has done a slew of gigs since leaving Llanview in 2009, including guest stints on “CSI: Miami,” “Law and Order: Criminal Intent,” and “The Mentalist.” And now he’s adding one more show to his resume: CBS’s procedural drama series, “Blue Bloods”!
Hot on the heels of the news that “Jersey Shore’s” Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Jessie Malakouti of Jessie and the Toy Boys, and the popular Aussie DJ sisters Nervo were all making stops in TOLN’s reboot of “One Life to Live,” fans can look for yet another familiar voice to drop by for a visit.
Bethany Watson, co-host of the New York City-based syndicated radio program “Elvis Duran and the Morning Show,” announced earlier this week that she too would be appearing in an upcoming episode of “OLTL.”
Soap Opera Network has learned exclusively that “One Life to Live’s” Kassie DePaiva (Blair Manning) took to song yesterday during scenes filmed on the Stamford, CT set of the drama series as cast members were left in awe of the power in her voice. DePaiva sang her hit single, “No Regrets,” from her 2004 CD of the same name.
In the emotional scene, Blair takes to song in her new nightclub, Shelter, after things hit a snag for the new establishment. Todd Manning (Roger Howarth) insists Blair entertain the crowd until things can be returned to normal. “No Regrets” features lyrics that are a subtle hint to Todd that Blair’s not over him.
As noted yesterday for “All My Children,” Hulu and TOLN have also released a billboard for “One Life to Live.” With the tag, “Who Says You’ve Only Got One Life to Live?” fans out of the loop will surely be in for a surprise when they see their favorite characters from Llanview have returned.
On Thursday, March 28, when news first broke on the hiring of Jenni ‘JWOWW’ Farley (“Jersey Shore” and “Snooki & JWOWW”) on “One Life to Live” in the recurring role of Nikki, Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network noted, “JWOWW got some acting tips from Josh Kelly, who plays con man Cutter Wentworth. Things got out of control after Kelly showed JWOWW how to do a ‘pretend’ slap. After a brief demonstration, Kelly asked JWOWW to slap, and she really did!” That slap is now available for viewing as MTV takes you being the scenes of JWOWW’s first day on the set of the iconic soap. Also included in the video is Kelly discussing “showmances,” where co-stars find romance off-screen.
