OLTL Back In Production! Kassie DePaiva Tweets First Images With Erika Slezak & More!

Today is a historic day for soap operas and for the beloved and iconic series One Life to Live, which was taken from us way before its time when it aired its last episode on January 13, 2012, after ABC made the decision to cancel it while it was on a ratings and creative high.

Now today, production begins anew thanks to the efforts of Prospect Park and all those behind-the-scenes to bring Llanview back to life in their new Connecticut studios!

Kassie DePaiva (Blair) has been our “Johnny-on-the-spot” getting images of this exciting day and tweeting them out to all her followers and One Life fans.  The one that struck us the most is pictured here  – seeing six-time Daytime Emmy winner Erika Slezak (Viki) returning to the role she loves so much, along with DePaiva.

In addition, there are images of balloons, her on-screen son Andrew Trischitta (Jack) and the younger set:  Robert Gorrie (Matthew), Laura Harrier (Destiny), Kelley Missal (Dani), Cordin Bleu (Jeffrey), plus  one of new executive producer, Jennifer Pepperman!

What do you think of the images coming out of Llanview today?  Excited as we are?  Share your thoughts!

So happy that its back!! I also hope that our Canadian friends will get to watch it too. My cousin who lives in Canada told me that Canadians don’t have access to Hulu, and therefore won’t be able to see either OLTL, or AMC. In a way it won’t be a true celebration, until all fans on either side of the border get to see our beloved shows.

who says that bringing AMC and OLTL will be an uphill battle? it will only be and uphill battle if the soap fans don’t watch online and I don’t think that’s going to happen! Every person I know that has watched in the past says that they will be watching. Have missed these shows and looking forward to their return… can’t wait for April 29th to get here!!

This is great news! I am SOOO looking forward to One Life to Live! Love this show. It comes across as being a real family. I can’t wait to see Bo, Vicki, Cassie and the rest of the cast. I am not sure what the casting departmnent was thinking with the new Destiny but I will give the new actress a fair chance. I hope Prospect Park and GH can work together. I think this would be in the best interest of all of the soaps.

Eileen Davidson, Vince Van Patten & Caitlyn Jenner In Cast Of New Sitcom ‘Duke of the Valley’

A fictional apartment building featuring a set of very eccentric tenants in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California is the backdrop for a new indie comedy sitcom based on the memoirs of the late Dick Van Patten, best known for his role on the ABC series, Eight is Enough.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

According to The Wrap, Caitlyn Jenner will star as Heather a transgender “white trash” woman who sells perfume at the counter of Macy’s.  Others in the cast include: Vince Van Patten’s wife and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex- DAYS and RHOBH), who plays Brenda, a washed-up actress who can’t accept that her career in showbiz is over.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.

So, what do you think of the premise of Duke of the Valley featuring Caitlyn, Eileen and Vincent? Comment below!
