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."

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!

As part of their partnership with Universal Music Group, which allows The OnLine Network (TOLN) to "provide compelling recorded music and songs, and artist cross-promotion and integration, to a powerful new audience," Prospect Park has cast Jessica "Jessie" Malkouti from Jessie and the Toy Boys in a role on "One Life to Live" as, what else, an aspiring musician.

Soap Opera Network has learned that television newcomer Caitlainne Rose Gurreri has landed the heavily recurring role of Eileen on TOLN's "All My Children." The actress is understood to be featured alongside Sal Stowers (Cassandra Foster) in a ripped from the headlines like storyline that sources say finds the characters of Jesse Hubbard (Darnell Williams) and Zach Slater (Thorsten Kaye) working together to bring down Vlad and Yuri, who are involved in a sex trafficking ring.

On Monday, March 18, Soap Opera Network was the first to report that Hulu had released a new premiere trailer for TOLN's "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." We've now since learned that Prospect Park hired Catalano Productions (@TorreCatalano) to produce the pre-launch material with Mad Machine Films (@MadMachineFilms on Twitter) signed on as the masterminds behind the editing of the "Living in America" themed video.

Earlier this evening Corbin Bleu (Jeffrey King) tweeted to his more than 980,000 followers, "If @onelifetolive gets 5,000 followers today, we'll tweet out a picture of me on my first day on set!" Soon afterward the series reached its goal and then some (total stands at 5,170 as of this writing). As a result, "One Life to Live" kept its promise when it tweeted out a pic of Bleu with his character holding his cell phone (see image on the right).

Hulu, the new exclusive home for online viewing of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," has released the first official trailer on its website highlighting cast and crew from both series as they worked behind the scenes for their photo shoot, which took place on Wednesday, February 27 in Sleepy Hollow, NY at the Sleepy Hollow Country Club. Additionally, Hulu has relaunched its "AMC" and "OLTL" web pages where you can be kept up to date on the latest happenings in Pine Valley and Llanview.

On Monday, March 18, "One Life to Live" begins filming for the first time in more than a year. Returning star Jerry verDorn (Clint Buchanan) posted pictures from the set, which shows construction underway (the soap was reportedly building sets last week) along with a look into what "All My Children's" sets are expected to look like as well as some key sets (namely the hospital and coffee shop) will be shared by both series (with alterations). It's understood that crew members will help transition certain sets from one show to another depending on which soap is currently in production.

Soon after Soap Opera Network reported that TOLN had revealed new logos for both "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," the production company has now revealed more new logos. As seen on their social media sites, Twitter and Facebook, "AMC's" initial logo now has life put into it instead of a plain white background, while "OLTL" is now at the center between heaven (black) and hell (red). The theme for "One Life" looks to play off of the fact that the series was originally supposed to be titled "Between Heaven and Hell" before ABC settled on the finished product way back when.

As previously reported, singer/actor Corbin Bleu has joined the cast of TOLN's "One Life to Live" in the contract role of Jeffrey King. The actor released the following statement to his 338,000+ Facebook followers:"I'm very excited about joining the "One Life to Live' family and beginning a new chapter in the shows long history. I can't wait to meet the entire talented cast & crew and begin filming at 'One Life to Live."
