Great news for Llanview fans!  While many have been commenting that all the actors thus far who have announced that they are participating in the upcoming Prospect Park reboots are from All My Children, well that ends tonight thanks to fan favorite Jerry verDorn!

The Daytime Emmy winner took to his Facebook page to announce he has signed on for the revival of One Life to Live! 

Jerry verDorn stated,  “Hello Everybody. One Life Lives.  And good things come to those who wait.  Or so it is said.  About an hour ago I agreed to be part of the OLTL revival and I’m thrilled to be involved in entertainment history as the show we love moves to other formats. The fans consistent drum beat of support played a large part in Prospect Park never giving up trying to find a solution. And today they announced it to the world.  With the cherry-on-the-top-news that Agnes Nixon has been hired as a consultant! For those who doubted, I don’t blame you as this has never been done before.  For those who never lost hope and never stopped writing and calling, well, good things come to those who wait.  Congratulations to you all. Welcome back to Llanview.  Love, Jerry verDorn.”

So soapers excited to see Jerry back in the saddle as Clint Buchanan?  Weigh-in on this exciting news!

Another HUGE get!!!! So important to get one of the Buchanan brothers on board! One down, 20 or so more to go.

This is so unbelievable! A year ago, it was all but dead and buried. And here we are, and there is a glorious light ahead. So, so proud of all this beautiful movement taking place in the right direction! THANK YOU Prospect Park!!!

This is getting more promising with each passing day, may it continue!!! I am glad to see Jerry aka Clint on board. Here is hoping his coming back will help lure Erika Slezak, Robert Woods and Hillary B Smith (although I believe she might be doing another online soap) back as well. I hope all of our beloved actors and actresses, who have not moved on to other shows or endeavors can all come back too, like Trevor St. John (Victor), Rex and Gigi, Roxy, Blair and her boys, Tea and her daughter, Shaun, Destiny and Mathew B, the hunky Ford Brothers, and the Buchanan girls, just to name a few on OLTL. I am also excited about AMC !!!!

I’m hoping ME will head back to Llanview and Natalie & Liam 😉 Todd & Starr are working out nicely in Port Charles, so they can stay with brief pop-ins to visit Blair, Dorian, Vickie, etc.

Mr. Fairman, when you remove the R.I.P.s could you add “Pretty Little Liars” to your list? Other than GH and SOAPnet it is the ONLY ABC/D product I watch. It is an excellent drama featuring many soap actors. Thank you for your consideration.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
