Erika Slezak, Vincent Irizarry and Thorsten Kaye Discuss What's to Come With AMC and OLTL Relaunch on The ViewBy Jillian Bowe on April 25, 2013
TOLN soap stars Erika Slezak, Vincent Irizarry and Thorsten Kaye stopped by The View today to chat with the ladies about All My Children and One Life To Live being revived and brought back online April 29. The actors revealed to the audience what they can expect next Monday with the new format.
“ABC remains very supportive of the online launch of both ‘One Life to Live’ and ‘All My Children,’” the network said in a statement. “With respect to Prospect Park’s lawsuit, we believe the claims are baseless and we will defend them vigorously in court and not the press.”
Former KABC journalist Leslie Miller will be hosting the weekly recap show for All My Children and One Life to Live, Prospect Park announced today. Produced by Tomorrow Productions (a division of NBC News production company Peacock Productions) the installments will air on Fridays. As previously reported, new episodes of AMC and OLTL will air Mon.-Thurs. on Hulu, Hulu Plus, iTunes and FX Canada. READ MORE
INTERVIEW: One Life to Live's Josh Kelly on Reprising Cutter, Trusting Prospect Park, JWoww and Movie DealsBy Jillian Bowe on April 16, 2013
Don't mistake Josh Kelly for just another pretty face — though that face is awfully pretty! This talented actor has game, which is why he experienced no hesitation in signing on board for Prospect Park's second attempt to reboot One Life to Live.
Starting April 29 on Hulu, Hulu Plus, iTunes and FX Canada, Kelly will once again be on our screens as fictional Llanview, PA.'s resident bad boy Cutter Wentworth. I caught up with the actor at a recent OLTL set visit.
Kelly served up the Long Island iced tea on Cutter's involvement with Nikki, a bartender at the new Llanview hot spot Shelter. Did I mention she's played by none other than Jersey Shore's JWoww? He also offered up the skinny cocktail on how a movie project he's attached to led to his initial involvement with Prospect Park.
Daytime Confidential: How excited are you to be back at One Life to Live?
Josh Kelly: Really excited.
DC: Were you apprehensive signing back on for the show, given what happened the last time it attempted to resume production?
JK: No. I trust Prospect Park. I really like the company. I'm really glad to be working for this company. DC: is the pace the same with online as it is with broadcast TV?
JK: The pace is about the same. I think its a little easier, actually, because its a half-hour show. It's really less that you have to do. I think it will be more palatable for the audience to have a half-hour show, as opposed to an hour everyday.
DC: What was the ultimate deciding factor that convinced you to step back into the role of Cutter?
JK: I missed the show. I missed the people on the show. I didn't like any of the the pilots I read for this year and I really like being part of the [OLTL] cast; especially in the way that it's been working. They're really encouraging creativity from us. I think it's an opportunity to do smoothing new and cool.
