ET's FIRST LOOK: All My Children & One Life to Live Sexy New Photo Shoot!

Courtesy/ET

As fans know, this week the cast of All My Children and One Life to Live gathered for a fantastic, hot and sexy photo shoot! While many of the returning stars were so excited to reunite with members of the cast they had not seen in awhile,  the “newbies” got their first taste of being part of these iconic shows and the revitalization of a more contemporary version of the soaps in this stylish shoot!

Entertainment Tonight was on the spot offering the first sneak peek into the images, look and feel, and to talk with various members of the casts!

OLTL’s Kassie DePaiva (Blair Cramer) said to ET, of getting back together with her co-stars for the photo shoot.  “It’s an emotional day. The last time we got together for a press junket for One Life to Live we were saying goodbye to it. Today we’re celebrating a rebirth and it’s really amazing.”   Tuc Watkins (David Vickers) related, “We did a soap opera event a couple of months ago and someone said, ‘When’s ‘One Life to Live’ coming back, and I said, ‘Look: It’s never coming back!’  Bu here we are. We’re back together again and we get to move into the future together.”

AMC’s Jill Larson (Opal) went on to say, “I think that Prospect Park is very smart to do this because they understand that these are shows that already have a huge and passionately loyal audience. If anybody’s going to be able to build an audience in a new form, it will be these shows.”

Watch after the jump as Erika Slezak (Viki, OLTL), Rob Scott Wilson (Pete, AMC), and others weigh-in on the shoot, and the relaunch of the series.  Then let us know what you think of the  images from the photo shoot?

This is so cool. Cannot wait to see more of OLTL and to finally be able to watch my soap again. I haven’t watched a soap since OLTL went off the air, and I’ve missed it so much.

Christina…you were the smart one. I was so desperate to see, them that it did not dawn on me that GH would want to keep them. I know I cn not be the only one.. The thing is I also watch GH. I stopped using channel 10 … not viewing the station unless it was GH. Now .. our top ppl have signed with GH. 🙁 I hate this but I still will be watching OLTL. I can not wait. After all when OLTL began it was wit Dorian , and Meredith coming into town. We have Vicki , too.… Read more »

I’m thrilled that AMC & OLTL are back!! I hope that they aren’t just all glam, that they continue with real, deep and current story lines. I also hope they won’t be to much geared to teen, young adult viewers. I’m not looking for another Glee I’ve been praying for my shows to continue from where they were. I continue to wait to see and hope I get thrilled. Thanks Prospect Park.

I absolutely agree with you re. quality of content. Neither frivolous “bubble gum” nor simulated porn are needed to ensure loyalty amongst viewers. Compelling stories, impassioned acting, and imaginative plot twists will keep fans hooked forever!

I wish them all the luck in the world. I think the last comment said it all. She was talking about all the online media outlets (Hulu, Netflix, iTunes, etc.). THIS is the demographic they are going for. Sadly the “old” fans who watched via their television sets and do not have internet access will miss out. Then there are those like me who do not like to watch internet television (at least not Hulu as they do not have the offerings that I like). I prefer Netflix because it has a friendly interface that I can use via my… Read more »

Have you looked into the other ways to hook up your computer to your televison besides the Xbox Christine?

Christine
Guest

Thanks CTWildHeart. 🙂 We have Hulu through Xbox and Netflix. For some reason when Hulu is run on the Tivo (in the bedroom where I watch my soaps after my boys go to bed), it causes Tivo to reboot every time. This is a major annoyance. For me it is about the comfort of watching. I am a busy stay-at-home mom of two and I enjoy watching my shows in my bedroom after the little ones have gone to sleep. I have very few hours to myself and right now that is reserved to watching Y&R, GH, and B&B unless… Read more »

You can get what is called an HDMI cable that connects your computer to your tv. If you have an older tv, I am not sure if this will work. Another tip is to try Amazon.com or Overstock.com because you can save a lot of money on the cable.

Christine
Guest

I do have Amazon Prime, but I did not hear that they would be offered there. My husband has had his own computer business since 17 and you can be sure we have “what is called an HDMI cable.” Ha! Ha! I know you are helping, ghfan4evr, but if you saw the stuff my husband has in our house, you would laugh and probably be shaking your head at me. He is at the forefront of every new technology and contraption. But me, I am about comfort at the end of the day. IF my dear husband could get it… Read more »

I would rather see the new characters move in gradually and finish off the conclusion of AMC where it ended. Going in 5 years a head makes me wonder if I will even watch the show.

boes
Guest
boes

please don’t watch then. The last thing the show needs are viewers determined to pick it apart before it even begins.

Not to mention that your wish is impossible to fulfill since many of the previous cast are not available or do not wish to continue.

Some people can always find something wrong.

Have to say, I agree with you Boes….I’m getting kinda tired of hearing complaints and excuses as to why to not watch. I was so upset when ABC cancelled my shows! And I never gave up hope that somehow they would return…..now that they have, I’m thrilled and can’t wait to watch. I understand that they will have to make some adjustments to make the show work. I mean come on, we’ve watched soaps for years, where a kid is born one year and within a few months he’s a teenager…LOL Timelines in the soap world have never added up… Read more »

You know, I wish them all the best. However, I’ll be curious as to once it starts airing, how many folks on this site are going to be complaining because it’s “different” than what they are used to and how it’s not the same.

Johnna

I know I won’t be complaining. There are enough veteran characters to keep me involved and it will be great seeing the new ones develop and become part of the family.

I am pretty damn excited for the return of All My Children. The most i have in like 10 yrs. I do not understand all the hate the teens are getting. For one Teen romance was an All My Children staple and two these are all children of legacy characters/families.

Kelly
Guest

That’s the thing it’s NOT the same show so those fans who are thinking that it’s going to be the same are in for a rude awakening. This will go the way of the 90210 who brought in some veterans and adults (meaning non-teens) but they were eventually phased out. We are not the demographic they are trying to grow.

How can anyone judge what this will be in the future without seeing the first show? We all worked hard to get this done! I will enjoy this new AMC with all my heart . I am one of the people who have watched this show since almost day 1 and remember how all the soaps were done. I remember Ruth sitting at her kitchen table drinking coffee with Joe and Joes Mom. When they started going to the hospital for a scene it was great, a bit of variety. I know many of these soaps came from beginnings on… Read more »

I stopped watching OLTL some years back because I was already watching AMC (on video, at night) and it was an hour. Now however that both shows are cut down I will probably tune in to both. I am very glad to see that they have (On AMC) Dixie, Angie, Jesse, Opal, Adam and Brooke and some other familiar faces – I don’t mind a recast of JR Chandler and others here and there, as long as they introduce them gradually. I wonder about things like the sets, the Opening Sequence, the pace, (since they won’t have to constantly stop… Read more »

This is absolutely awesome and I can’t wait to start watching both shows again, especially One Life To Live !!! Prospect Park is definitely a visionary company in resurrecting both of these shows and I believe they will be a huge success since an online format is the future. Personally I watch a lot of shows online as I recently cancelled my cable and just watch online the next day anyways. I am curious to see exactly how many people watch the shows since I never believed the current ratings system for TV viewing to be accurrate.

I feel sorry for the viewers that can’t get with the program. The ones that can’t embrace change, yet are stuck in mental limbo by criricizing these efforts. Life is too short to focus on anything, other that what will make you happy. The very utterance of this reboot, only proves the shows aren’t out of your systems. So with that, love live the reboot!!

For some of us, it’s not that we can’t get WITH the program. It’s that we just can’t get the program. Hulu and Huluplus are not available in Canada. So much for the WORLD wide web. And since I am already paying for internet, i can’t afford to be paying for itunes to watch AMC no matter how much i want to. But if it comes on to something else and it’s free and actually available to the entire viewing audience, then I will be watching.

David Jones
Guest
David Jones

Well Larry this understandable, but PP is working on international deals too. It would just be nice, if fans read more..before assuming the worse. Most don’t see their favorite star aboard, and assume they’ll never join. Most never read statements from the actors explaining they may come later. I just always research before I speak, and I hope these deals works out for Canadian viewers too.

Torrey

Hey Michael, has Prospect Park given you a date or any information as to when their website will be up and running? Would be cool if they could get an actual live website that gave new details, photos and information of what’s to come….just curious if you have heard anything. I’m on the mailing list, but am greedy and impatient and want more…LOL

I am so happy for these actors that were treated so badly by ABC/Disney. I love you all and welcome you back with open arms and a full and happy heart!!!!! But, while I’m grateful to Prospect Park for bringing my shows back to me, I have to say they aren’t treating the fans any better than ABC/Disney did. Note to Prospect Park: You are not treating the fans of these shows fairly by being secretive and deliberately evasive. We are not your adversaries – we are just as invested as you to have these shows succeed. Let us in.

forgot to add…: for those who listen to Dan J. Kroll… on his soapcentrallive internet show….

just this past fridays’ show….spoke about 1/2 hour soaps…. how AMC has that much more time… to prep… retake scenes…. reshoot to get that scene just “right” etc…

this can only benefit the show as a whole…. newbies: give the originals’ the respect they command….

Oye! can only imagine what it takes to soap.

I want to thank Prospect Park for following through with their plan to revive AMC & OLTL. Granted, it was much later than intended, but at least they (the shows) are almost here. Also, a HUGE thanks to all the fans that pushed PP to keep their promise. We saved our “families”!!!

How sad it is to me to look back at this from just a few short years ago and realize that it just didn’t work out as an “on-line” presentation ~ we all had such high hopes and it seemed that it could work – I don’t think the actors were prepared for what was ahead, but of course, in show-business or should I say the Entertainment industry one never knows for sure what will make it, and what will not. I do not think it’s a reflection of the shows (meaning OLTL and AMC) I think that Prospect Park… Read more »

All My Children Alum Cornelius Smith Jr. Joins the Cast of Apple TV+ Limited Series, ‘Five Days At Memorial’

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.

Photo: JPI

The series will stream on Apple TV+, and no word yet as to when it will have its debut following its filming.

 

Since his time on All My Children, Smith has appeared on ABC’s Scandal, and had recurring roles on God Friended MeSelf Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker and Manhunt.

Deadline broke the casting news.

So, looking forward to seeing Cornelius back on our screens? Do you remember his work as Dr. Frankie Hubbard on All My Children? Comment below.
