“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.
After more than a year since the launch of its official website, The OnLine Network/TOLN has finally revealed a website geared towards an audience! As of today, the newly re-designed website features information and links on how to view both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” as well as links to each shows social network site via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr in the case of “OLTL.”
News of Jenni “JWOWW” Farley heading to TOLN’s “One Life to Live” had been brewing all day today as fans of the soap began noticing interesting messages posted on Twitter including one from “JWOWW” herself when she tweeted, “Heading out to the set of one hot new show! Can you guess where I’ll be making an appearance this week?” The tweet was accompanied by an image that showed her in the “OLTL” hair and makeup room getting prepared for her scenes.
Fans have long wondered how they could watch their favorite returning serial dramas “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” since it was revealed in late January that both series would be available for viewing online via Hulu.com, Hulu Plus and iTunes. The OnLine Network released today banner images that summarizes how things will work, but will it be enough to help viewers tune in? We’ll soon find out as “AMC” and “OLTL” premiere Monday, April 29 via the aforementioned video platforms.
With the characters of Matthew Buchanan and Destiny Evans already recast with Robert Gorrie and Laura Harrier, it was only a matter of time before their on-screen love child Drew was recast as well. On Wednesday, Gorrie tweeted a picture of he and his reel-life baby momma holding twin infants Elijah and Isaiah Ford, who are taking over the role on “One Life to Live.”
The babies take over the role from baby Ezra Giovanni-Scott, who played Drew in “OLTL’s” final episodes on ABC.
May sweeps are a month away, but it looks like the upcoming onscreen drama won’t be able to hold a candle to the real-life drama brewing between Prospect Park’s “One Life to Live” and ABC’s “General Hospital.”
After Prospect Park’s plans to reboot both “OLTL” and “All My Children” for the web fell through in November 2011, the company was approached by ABC who was interested in transplanting the characters of Todd Manning, Starr Manning and John McBain to Port Charles as portrayed by their originators Roger Howarth, Kristen Alderson and Michael Easton. The understanding at the time between ABC and Prospect Park was that the characters would be utilized on “GH” until plans to reboot “OLTL” came back into play as Prospect Park didn’t want to hold the Llanview 3 from working. Since their debuts in Port Charles in early 2012, the characters have tested very high with both viewers and focus groups and have played a large role in the overall audience growth for “GH” compared to its 2011 performance in the Nielsen ratings. Unfortunately, things behind the scenes weren’t looking as good.
Just a week after Soap Opera Network reported that The OnLine Network (TOLN) had revealed a second set of new logos for both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” the production company has now revealed even more new logos for each show!
In a new interview with Carolyn Hinsey‘s “Tainted Dreams” blog, Kassie DePavia reveals her excitement on the return of “One Life to Live” and previews fans on what they can expect from the show now that it is being produced by Prospect Park.
“My whole body just shook with happiness. I am so glad to be doing this again. There is a really good energy there. So many of the people that I had grown to love at ‘One Life to Live’ are there, and I had a complete flashback to P&G [Procter & Gamble] with all the people working there that I know from ‘Guiding Light,’” says DePavia, who began her daytime career on “GL” as Chelsea Reardon from 1986-1991 before taking over the role of Blair on “One Life” in 1993.
With just over one month to go until “One Life to Live” makes its online debut, more storyline details and behind-the-scenes pictures are slowly beginning to emerge. However, it isn’t only the regular cast and crew that are spilling secrets and posting photos. Several of the show’s dayplayers and extras have also started talking about their recent set-side experiences.
TNA Impact Wrestling Superstars Jessie Godderz (“Big Brother”) and Lisa Marie Varon have joined the ever growing cast of the NYC Brand Productions online series “Tainted Dreams,” created by “All My Children” Supervising Producer Sonia Blangiardo. Godderz, whose wrestling stage name is Mr. PEC-Tacular, is probably best known for his time on CBS’ “Big Brother.” Varon appears in TNA programming with the stage name Tara (aka Tarantula).
