One Life to Live

Both the "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" official Facebook pages are seeking questions from fans to ask Agnes Nixon, creator of both legendary soap operas. Out of the all the questions submitted, 10 will be sent over to Nixon to answer next week just as each series goes into production in Stamford, CT. It is understood that 10 questions will be sent over for "AMC" and another 10 for "OLTL."
On Wednesday, Soap Opera Network reported that actress Laura Harrier had been cast in the contract role of Destiny Evans on "One Life to Live." Now the characters originator, Shenell Edmonds, has taken to Facebook to make clear that she had been in talks with Prospect Park about a possibility of returning to the soap, but the company was unable to come to an agreement with her that would have accommodated her school schedule.
We're just days away from "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" resuming production with Prospect Park, after more than a year having gone by since airing their final ABC episodes, but "AMC's" Jill Larson (Opal Cortlandt) is helping build anticipation for eager fans as the actress has posted a behind the scenes video of sets being built at the Stamford, CT studio for both series as well as a photo of herself alongside David Canary (Adam/Stuart Chandler), who reportedly has returned to the series now that filming is essentially in his back yard (Canary reportedly lives in CT).
Soap Opera Network has learned exclusively that Laura Harrier has been cast in the contract role of Destiny Evans on "One Life to Live." She replaces Shenell Edmonds, who portrayed the character on the ABC version of the series from 2009-2012. No word yet on who will be portraying the recast version of Matthew Buchanan, last played by Eddie Alderson.
On Thursday, February 14, Soap Opera Network was first to report on Roger Howarth returning to "One Life to Live." In our initial reporting it appeared that the actor would be returning to the soap full-time, but as the day progressed we soon learned that it would only be for four weeks with Howarth scheduled to begin filming on Monday, March 18, at the Stamford, CT studios for the online reboot of the series, per the actors management. Why the initial confusion? It looks as though Roger's deal to return to "OLTL" was just being signed as Soap Opera Network went to press, per Howarth's management, so word of his return to "OLTL" was correct, but length was unclear.
As Prospect Park continues casting for the upcoming online rendition of "One Life to Live" under the promise of blending "new themes, fresh stars and youthful energy," the soap is making some alterations to a previously released casting call for a "charming" new character.
As previously reported, "All My Children" has named Marlene McPherson and Elizabeth Snyder as co-head writers. What's so significant about their hiring is that this marks the first time since 2003 that a daytime soap opera has had two females leading its writing team. The last time was with Ellen Weston and Carolyn Culliton co-head writing CBS' "Guiding Light." Prior to that was in 2002, when Millee Taggert and Culliton also co-head wrote for "GL."
As part of his efforts to bring an oral history of "One Life to Live" to page via the upcoming book "Llanview in the Afternoon: An Oral History of 'One Life to Live,'" entertainment writer Jeff Giles has been posting numerous interviews and snippets of interviews from his time speaking with writers, producers, cast and crew members as they told of their experiences working on the ABC drama series. One such interview/story was posted earlier today on the books official Facebook page, which highlighted a moment in the life of Patricia Elliott (ex-Renee Buchanan).
Sure it looks generic (and that's just us being nice) and may not be the final product, but TradeMarkia.com has a posting on its website which shows that Prospect Park Networks, LLC has filed a trademark on the TOLN logo. There is also a posting for TOLN's more widely known name - the OnLine Network.
With just a week to go before production is set to begin once more on "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," after more than a year since both series aired their last episodes on ABC, a number of behind the scenes personnel have been hired on to help spearhead the soaps into the digital world via Hulu and iTunes later this spring.

On Monday, February 11, Paos Revolution, the team behind the upcoming "On Air" film starring "All My Children's" Jordi Vilasuso (Dr. Griffin Castillo) and Alicia Minshew (ex-Kendall Hart) announced the launch of their official website.

Child actor Patrick Gibbons, who famously wore the Spiderman costume through several episodes of "One Life to Live" during the soaps final year on ABC, while portraying Sam Manning on the soap, is returning to the series when it resumes production later this month under Prospect Park's TOLN, the actors twitter account confirmed today.
