Hot on the heels of the news that “Jersey Shore’s” Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Jessie Malakouti of Jessie and the Boy Toys, and the popular Aussie DJ sisters Nervo all making stops in TOLN’s new Llanview 2.0, fans can look for yet another familiar face to drop by for a visit.
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.”
When “One Life to Live” returns next month, things won’t exactly going well for at least one longtime Llanview resident. According to “OLTL” Co-Head Writer Thom Racina, technology and tough economic times may have finally caught up with the town’s matriarch Victoria Lord (Erika Slezak) and her family’s newspaper The Banner.
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 other excitement on the return of “One Life to Live” and previews what fans can expect from the show now that it is being produced by Prospect Park.
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.
“One Life to Live’s” longest serving cast member Erika Slezak (Viki) has released a new statement on her official website saying that Prospect Park is “working very hard to get everything right” for the online version of the long-running soap and says that cast and crew are “hoping for our former audience to return and continue to enjoy and for our new audience to get to know us.”
The Llanview teen scene heats up as Australia’s hottest DJs, sisters Mim and Liv Nervo stop by Llanview to spin some records at the fictional town’s trendiest new nightclub and hang out with several of “One Life to Live’s” younger cast members.
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.
When the official “One Life to Live” cast photo shoot was unveiled last month Robin Strasser was one of two contract cast members (Hillary B. Smith being the other) not in attendance at the Sleepy Hollow Country Club with the rest of her c0-stars. However, it was pneumonia and not a snub from her new bosses that kept “One Life’s” grand dame from getting her close-up.
Prospect Park continues to channel “One Life to Live’s” original title of “Between Heaven and Hell” in a new audition script, which holds true to their desire to make the online version of the show “edgier” and “fresh.”
With “All My Children” already under production and “One Life to Live” set to begin next week, soap fans have been anxiously awaiting their much anticipated online debuts. After months of speculating, Prospect Park finally reveals the date both shows will debut on Hulu and iTunes. Starting Monday, April 29 at noon ET, fans will get their first glimpse of Pine Valley and Llanview 2.0.
With “All My Children” currently filming its second weeks worth of shows and “One Life to Live” scheduled to begin filming on Monday, March 18, Soap Opera Network has learned new information about the studio NEP Broadcasting had been constructing for both soaps at the Connecticut Film Center (CFC) in Stamford, which previously housed production for the TBS sitcom “Are We There Yet?”
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.
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.
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.
