As long as we can get Todd back in his penthouse, I’m happy. 😉

Never forget .. Todd, RH, did not sign on with PP when OL ended..
He did not want to go on with PP ..
I doubt he will now..
If Asked I’d bet he will say no as he did the first time..

just because some/most want him back does mean he wants to be with PP online ..

I read that Prospect Park is going to let ABC keep the characters.

BOTH R.H. and TSJ declined PP’s last invitation to go on line with them. I think there will be NO TOD or VICTOR even though the cliffhanger had him ALIVE at end of OLTL. sad 🙁

it’s always possible that Todd or Victor will be a recast on OLTL. If we get to keep the name of Todd Manning on GH, then I’d guess they’d have at least Victor found on OLTL since that was part of the cliffhanger.

I am so thrilled to Thom for posting this video. I hope he will continue these little teasers right up to the time the show hits the web.

I love his excitement and enthusiasm! I appreciate him taking the time out to say something to fans. Looking forward to what’s ahead in Pine Valley and Llandview!

I want Todd to stay at GH..
That is why the writers will give him a different name (other than Todd Manning) so he can stay in GH until all is settled..
I have thought about it and that is where they are going..
Todd will fake (again) DID and become ‘whomever’ and thus not being the Todd character that PP owns but a different name/character.. .
and when all is legally settled over the characters, and GH wins,, he will become Todd again..

They must bring the vets to the forefront of the show and not try to cram a bunch of younger newbies down our throats or the show will fail !

OL will now be on internet and via Smart Tv’s and internet devices, apps etc..
Yes, they do indeed want to attract new and younger viewers..
The seniors are not the priority:) of course they want all fans back, no doubt of that, but they also want and need a new audience..
It is no longer all about us 🙁 it is about the down the road future to PP ..

Love it. OLTL is the future, yet structured and centered around the classic, traditional soap genre. Fans are ready for April! Let the countdown begin!

I tell you what. My birthday’s in April and I can’t think of a better present to myself than a reboot of OLTL. Please start it on April 8.

I feel the war of the two Todds(1 really twin named Victor) would have been dynamite drama for the show but i doubt either will return
plus i havent heard either actor agreeing to return to what isnt proven successful just yet. I want them to succeed but what if some fans dont like what they see and the shows dont meet PP expectaions. These shows may start out with a bang with some watching out of curiousity but that dont mean theyll stick with it and we could loose it again. I want them back and do have high hopes for them but i hate to be disappointed.
Teasers dont mean anything. iv seen previews of shows in the past that looked promising but then when they aired it wasnt
what i thought. I DO WANT OLTL AND AMC TO SUCCEED, and wish a place like Prospect Park was around when Dark Shadows and Edge Of Night(ds was a horror soap and edge was mysteries) were canceled by the networks. Anyway if OLTL does well, i hope Alison Perkins comes around to stir up some trouble for Viki and the gang. That character was fun to watch. I havent read anything about that character,however.

everyone needs to realize a lot of these actors have moved on, no fault of their own. Who would have thought these shows would be resurrected a year later? I dont blame any of them if they dont come back. There is something to be said about the half hour format, look at B&B and as awful as the writing and acting has become on that show its the most watched soap in the world. Go figure. Theres a good chance if these shows succeed online they may get a cable network to air them.

bottom line, good writing plus fan favorites equals success. Look at GH. While the top two shows are floundering storywise, this show is just getting better and better. i do hope Todd/Starr/McBain stay on and maybe do crossover storylines to get people to watch both shows.

i hope they do crossovers too. it worked in the past and even on two different networks.

I am excited about OLTL returning. (I still am not sure it is actually happening!) I am ready, too, for changes in Llanview. I do not expect to see on Prospect Park what I saw on ABC. Not everyone is going to return and we may have recasts or explanations that characters have left Llanview. I expect will we see a leaner, tighter production — already 30 minutes instead of 60 ticks. I expect a diffierent Llanview in that the producers and writers are now at GH. But we will see OLTL again and many familiar faces seem to be on board. I hope fans will not be supportinve of this experiment and nnot be naysayers if what is on screen is indeed different. Because it will be to some extent.

I take issue with his comment about being shot in Times Square. New York City is one of the safest cities in the world. A comment like that is not only inaccurate but perpetuates the stereotypes of the big city that people have concerning NYC. If that’s him being bold and exciting, I don’t think I’ll be tuning in.

I want the John McBain Character back to OLTL, he belongs with Natalie not Sam on GH. I feel FV/RC butchered the “JOLIE” story for GH ratings. I understand Michael Easton probably won’t come back, but OLTL won’t be for me if there is no JOLIE! Won’t be watching GH either, since I can’t stand to watch now.

su0000

no way do I want to see McBian becoming paint on wall with Natalie, they are a boring couple and not even hot lol
they were broken up/done when OL got canceled but to appease for the happy ever after stuff they were thrown together once again at the end:)
ME/John is alive and the best I have seen being in 10yrs,, He is awesome and vivid on GH.. GH gave him life!!
OLTL will just make him Nats pet .. John is not a family man.. he never has been and never should be a family man 🙂

Brenda

So that goes for GH too right, no family. I guess he will have to find someone other than Sam then because she has Danny now. I hope John is back on OLTL and back together with Natalie and Liam where he belongs not playing vampire over on GH.

bold! innovative! exciting! that’s what they all say. how is it bold and innovative and exciting when the only recurring characters are the Indian americans? recurring means less storylines and therefore the racial minorities won’t get the same treatment as the white chars. that’s not bold and innovative and exciting. that’s regular and typical and dull. that’s stereotypical hollywood.

I just wanted to thank you for bringing our soap families back to life. I been a avid soap fan since the late 70’s and the last year was a bore without them. I can’t wait to watch them and just wanted to thank you again for all your hard work! I’m on several save the soap sites and know lots of people are thrilled to see our beloved soaps again. Much love and success from Texas! Always a fan Janna Johnson

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Courtesy/ABC

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”

Luckinbill’s Black Label Media recently produced the war movie, 12 Strong in which he co-stared, while he was also one of the producers on the hit movie, La La Land.

Intrigued to see how Postscript turns out? Wish Thad would return as. J. T to Y&R for a another stint? Comment below.
