One Life to Live

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.

At the 2013 Writers Guild Awards, "The Young and The Restless" beat out "Days of our Lives" and "One Life To Live" for their fifth win. The show previously won in 2003, 2006, 2008, and 2010.

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. "The launch of paosrevolution.com is the first step of our plan to connect fans to the soap actors and insiders they love. Founding partners Jordi Vilasuso, Dock (Jeff Dockweiler) and John Homa are committed to creating an interactive actor friendly environment," said a press release announcing the launch.

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.

Miss a day, miss a lot is the saying, but as the behind-the-scenes drama continues to unfold between ABC and Prospect Park in relation to the characters of Starr Manning, Todd Manning and John McBain and their need on either "General Hospital" or "One Life to Live," the saying has now become who's has what and how it affects daytime viewers.

Prospect Park announced today that it will begin production on Monday, February 25 on both "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." Principal production for both programs will take place in Stamford, Connecticut as expected. The company did not release additional casting notices, despite Cady McClain announcing she had signed on for the "AMC" reboot. The company expects to release additional casting notices in the coming days and weeks.

Prospect Park's much anticipated online revivals of long-running soaps "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" continue to inch closer to reality as both shows are scheduled to go into production in the coming weeks ahead of their excepted launch dates on Hulu (and iTunes) sometime in April.

A year after canceling "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," and a year that saw millions of dissatisfied viewers tuning out of a new daytime "Revolution," Advertiser Perceptions has named ABC Daytime #1 in sales knowledge and customer service for calendar year 2012, reports AdAge.com. The website says that the network as a whole ranked first in advertiser satisfaction in the category of broadcast television. The network was the highest-rated overall media company in 2011, but has now been unseated by Google during the most recent update. Meredith Corp., publisher of Ladies' Home Journal magazine, won the coveted position in 2010.
