Today on this very special celebration for the fans of One Life to Live, the series 45th anniversary,  creator Agnes Nixon sent a very special message to them and to everyone involved in the show!

Illustrating in her words how One Life to Live came in to being and how it was only originally given six months by ABC, Agnes tells the story of how this show, this most wonderful show filled with so much human drama,  came to be.

But what makes it all the more heartfelt is that on this week’s episode of MORE One Life to Live, the letter is read by Erika Slezak (Viki). And as fans know, Erika gives credit and her utmost respect and love to Agnes for her enduring career and for casting her, and creating the extraordinary world of Viki Lord!

Now after the jump, get ready to watch this very special anniversary message, but we suggest if you are a die-hard One Lifer and have fought for this show to come back from the dead, that you have a hankie nearby!

With love to all of you, who have stood by and watched One Life to Live for decades, and in it’s new incarnation with Prospect Park.  Llanview is forever in our hearts, and is still going strong!

I’m with everyone else. OLTL has always been my favorite for 45 wonderful years. I have watched AMC (when Tad and Dixie are together), GH, Y&R, and others sporadically but OLTL is my all time favorite. Thank you Agnes Nixon, PP and all the stars of the best soap ever.

I’ve loved this show for as long as I can remember, and I’m 32 now. My grandma watched, who passed it on to my mom, who then passed it on to my sister and I. These characters have been like a second family to me, and I’m truly grateful to Agnes for creating them, and to Prospect Park for bringing them back. Happy 45th anniversary One Life to Live, and here’s hoping for 45 more!!

AMC had Susan Lucci-GH had Luke and Laura…They
may have had the buzz,the notoriety and were familiar to the casual
and the occasional viewer
but One Life to Live was the daytime drama devotee’s
true favorite

I love this show! I have watched it since 1978 and even though there have been many many MANY times I’ve wanted to slap the crap out of many characters (and head writers who split up Bo and Nora but I digress) I have never given up. I have threatened but I could never quit my precious Llanview. The year in between I spent writing a couple fan fiction (Bo and Nora related of course!) and watching clips of all my favorites. But the reboot – and the pride in Ms. Nixon’s voice (via Ms. Slezak) have proven to me that this is more than just a show – it truly is a lifestyle – it’s my lifestyle and I am proud to say I am a OLTL junkie! Happy Anniversary One Life to Live – best wishes for another 45!

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.”
