As evidenced by the first episode of "One Life to Live," life in Llanview has continued long after the soap ended its ABC run in January 2012. No, we don't mean that the soap has jumped ahead five years as sister soap "All My Children" has done in order to progress its storylines, we mean characters didn't just walk upstairs to the attic and kept silent and still while the millions of fans mourned their reported last breaths. Scheduled to re-launch on Monday, April 29 via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes, the soap is about to take things higher with the opening of Blair's new night club, Shelter, as the backdrop to getting things moving once more.
Florencia Lozano's Tea Delgado is given the honor of saying the first curse word in the newly released "First Day of School" behind the scenes video by The OnLine Network, set to music by Raphael Lake/Ben Fisher with their song "Light It Up," which was recently uploaded as an iTunes exclusive. In character, Lozano yells at Robert Gorrie's Matthew Buchanan on why he let her daughter do...
For more than 43 years ABC's "One Life to Live" entertained millions of viewers each and every weekday, week after week, year after year. Sadly, the network canceled the soap in 2011 and the series aired its then final episode in January 2012. Now, in anticpation of its return on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes on Monday, April 29, The OnLine Network has released a recap of the series as hosted by Erika Slezak (Victoria Lord Buchanan).
As the old saying goes, a happy employee is a productive employee. And that must be a mantra Prospect Park believes in. According to the actors who have signed on to the serial dramas, “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” the production company — headed by Jeff Kwatinetz and Richard Frank — has batted a thousand when it comes to being respectfully in charge. And the end result, as the performers preview, is pure magic.
On Wednesday, March 20, Alex Kruglov, Head of Content Acquisition, Hulu, visited the set of the internet hub's recent acquisition of TOLN's "One Life to Live." In a posting on Twitter, Kruglov said, "Holy cow everything looks impressive. Excited to launch it and #AMC on 4/29." The tweet was accompanied by a behind the scenes photo that shows actress Florencia Lozano in a scene as Tea Delgado in a beautiful new set presumed to be her characters newly re-designed digs. It was previously feared by many fans that both "OLTL" and "All My Children" would go the route of Peapack, NJ as "Guiding Light" did in its latter years in order to save on production costs.
The OnLine Network (TOLN) has confirmed the following stars who have joined the cast of “One Life to Live.”
Despite Michael Easton's announcement early this morning, where he stated that after February 8th he would be exiting "General Hospital," along with Roger Howarth and Kristen Alderson, due to "some ongoing legal this and that," an ABC spokesperson tells Soap Opera Network that all three will remain an essential part of the "GH" canvas for the foreseeable future.
Prospect Park first announced plans to move "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" to the web back in July 2011 after striking a license holding deal with Disney/ABC Domestic Television. Sadly, plans fell through by November 2011 after apparent financing and union discussions fell through. Since that dreadful time period, Prospect Park has resumed work on returning the soaps to your [computer] screens, only this time with financing said to be in place and union deals already signed with the DGA (directors), SAG-AFTRA (actors) and the WGA (writers). With more than a year gone by since "One Life to Live" last aired, we thought it would be a great opportunity to see which stars have (so far) signed on to return to "AMC" and "OLTL" compared to the list circling back in 2011.
Prospect Park today announced an initial listing of writers, producers and cast members who have signed on for the online reboots of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." The company has formally announced Susie Bedsow Horgan and Thom Racina as head writers of "OLTL." Thorsten Kaye and Jill Larson bring the "AMC" cast count to 7 stars signed. "OLTL" adds Erika Slezak, Tuc Watkins, Kassie DePaiva, Florencia Lozano, Melissa Archer, Hillary B. Smith, Kelley Missal, Josh Kelly and Andrew Trischitta, who join previously signed Robert S. Woods, Robin Strasser and Jerry verDorn. With the exception of Strasser, Woods, Smith and Watkins, Prospect Park has secured most of the actors signed on during the first round of plans to reboot the soaps back in 2011.
Florencia Lozano will once again be reprising her role of Téa Delgado on ABC's "General Hospital," only this time she'll be popping up in Llanview.
After weeks of speculation, Soap Opera Network can now report that actress Florencia Lozano will be reprising her role as Téa Delgado from "One Life to Live" on ABC's "General Hospital" in the coming weeks. The news was broken by website We Love Soaps.
Prospect Park executives Jeff Kwatinetz and Rich Frank have confirmed to Soap Opera Network that the production company has signed "One Life to Live" cast members Tuc Watkins (David), Josh Kelly (Cutter), Florencia Lozano (Tea), and Shenell Edmonds (Destiny) for the online version of the ABC soap pending final Guild agreements.
With "One Life to Live" nearing the end of its run on ABC Daytime, the list of returning former cast members is increasing. And, while the list is impressive, it is lacking one important ingredient for long-time fans of the soap.
"One Life to Live" parodies "Look Who's Talking," but does it mean the end of Llanview as we know it?
