On Tuesday, February 26, just one day after resuming production on "All My Children" after more than a year a half since ending its ABC run, the cast of the soap got together on set to perform "The Harlem Shake" for the TOLN Extras YouTube channel, where fans can get up close and personal with their favorite TOLN stars. Earlier today TOLN released the performance of "Harlem Shake," while also announcing that soap fans will soon learn THIS WEEK when "AMC" will premiere on Hulu, Hulu Plus, and iTunes. Previously, the network only noted that "AMC" and sister soap "One Life to Live" would premiere this spring.
Despite an earlier report stating otherwise, based on information from Robin Strasser's (Dorian Lord) telephone hotline, a senior level Prospect Park insider tells Soap Opera Network, "production has NOT been pushed back. This has been long planned to make way for a piece of the storyline that involves new sets and use of certain characters and not others."
Michael Easton (John McBain) posted an update for fans wanting to know where he currently stands in the dispute between ABC's "General Hospital" and TOLN's "One Life to Live." In a Facebook message, the actor said, "THANK YOU...your kind words of support mean the world to me. No word yet on when we might return to work but the fridge is stocked, the bills are paid, and I get to spend lots of precious time with my little girl."
According to Robin Strasser (Dorian Lord) via her fan hotline (212-414-5300), "One Life to Live" will now begin filming new episodes for Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes on Monday, March 18. Previously, the series was scheduled to commence filming on Monday, March 11. The actress brought the news to light despite being unwell at the time. Early this morning Strasser tweeted, "What a difference a week makes when you're feeling weak (lol) not sick of word play-just saying."
Prospect Park’s “All My Children” and “One Life To Live” aren’t set to take the Internet world by storm until April, when they debut on The Online Network, iTunes, Hulu and Hulu Plus, but the soaps’ exciting launch is already off to a great start.
As we previously reported, The Online Network (TOLN) has tapped "The Price is Right" male model Robert Scott Wilson to join the production company's online revival of "All My Children" as a recast Pete Cortlandt.
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.
Earlier today, Prospect Park announced that actress Julia Barr will reprise her role of Brooke English on TOLN's "All My Children," which resumes production on Monday, February 25. Barr, who last appeared during the finale episode of the soap operas ABC run in September 2011, has signed on as a series regular, a Prospect Park representative tells Soap Opera Network.
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.
