One Life to Live
Since news of Prospect Park's plans to reboot One Life to Live and All My Children first began to trickle out, one big question has remained — how would our neighbors to the North watch the sudsers? That question has finally been answered. FX Canada has signed an exclusive, North American deal to air the resurrected soaps!
That's right Canucks, you will be able to catch every scandalous hook-up and over-the-top return from the dead when OLTL and AMC return on April 29. AMC will air every day at noon EST/2 pm PST on the cabler. OLTL will air at 12:30/2:30 PST.
“All My Children and One Life to Live are a unique addition to FX Canada’s slate of provocative and critically-acclaimed dramas,” said Scott Moore, President of Broadcast, Rogers Media. “As the only television channel in North America broadcasting these new series, FX Canada continues its commitment to deliver exclusive, premium content to its viewers.” READ MORE
There's one thing One Life to Live viewers have come to know by heart — don't mess with Tea Delgado's (Florencia Lozano) loved ones! The Online Network has released a teaser video on iTunes called, 'First Day of School'. In the clip, a juicy SPOILER has Tea going HAM-TASTIC on Matthew (Robert Gorrie), when Dani (Kelley Missal) overdoses at Blair (Kassie DePaiva) and Cutter's (Josh Kelly) new club! READ MORE
You can tell soaps are in vogue again, simply by witnessing how often they're being spoofed by comedians. This past weekend, Saturday Night Live did a sketch featuring host Vince Vaughan starring in the Weather Channel's premiere sudser, Stormy Skies. I'd put it on my DVR! Watch the sudsy insanity ensue after the jump.
Enough with bow wow wow, yippie yo yippie yay. This Lion wants to ROAR again in Llanview!
Rapper and One Life to Live fan extraordinaire Snoop Lion has agreed to produce the soap's new theme song, "Brand New Start." The former Doggfather will also appear in several episodes of the TOLN soap. READ MORE
Let's get one thing clear, hot-bodied, young thespian Robert Gorrie isn't trying to replace Eddie Alderson. The One Life to Live newcomer drove that point home several times while I chatted with him during a recent set visit. What Gorrie is trying to accomplish, is successfully navigating baby daddy/bad boy Matthew Buchanan's twisty journey into adulthood on the TOLN soap.
Will that journey involve controversial, new story arcs for Matthew and Destiny (Laura Harrier)? What role with Matthew's old flame Dani Delgado-Manning (Kelley Missal) play in his baby mama drama? Don't forget about new hunk in town Jeffrey King (Corbin Bleu). Gorrie reveals how Matt will be interacting with all three, not to mention the extended Buchanan family. To borrow from one CBS soap, OLTL is about to get hella young and very restless!
Daytime Confidential: What made you sign onto One Life to Live?
Robert Gorrie: I particularly liked the challenge of this new media platform. Internet television is the future and I felt like, to be a part of something that’s just on the cusp of becoming the norm in the industry, and to be on the first soap to do it, I just thought it was a really unique opportunity. I think a lot of eyeballs are going to catch it. READ MORE
