More casting news out of Shreveport, Louisiana where writer and producer Emily Hummel has been busy assembling an amazing array of daytime stars for her first web series venture, The Team!  As previously announced, Crystal Chappell (Payton) and Tristan Rogers (Seneca)  have signed on to play major roles in the dramatic web series, but now comes word of two more  signings and the hunk factor just went up!

One Life to Live’s David Gregory (Ex-Ford) will play the role of Asher.   What exactly is an Asher?  He is described as, “A former actor turned con-man that plays a unique role in Seneca’s Team.  Asher is a charming playboy that likes to focus on enjoying life.  He is very talented in impersonating others and at improv acting.  These skills, along with his experience in running cons, make him an important piece of Seneca’s team.”

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Winsor Harmon (Thorne), a Louisiana native himself , will have a guest-star role as Denny.  Denny is said to be  a covert operative for the CIA that finds himself in need of the team’s help.

Principal photography will begin in early June with a fall launch for the series on the docket! 

So what do you think of the interesting cast of Chappell, Rogers, Gregory and Harmon?  Let us know! We love seeing soap star mash-ups and this series has certainly got something for anyone who has followed different daytime soaps!

Mark F,

I’m glad to see Winsor Harmon get a role outside of Bold and Beautiful, since Brad Bell for some reason, refuses to write anything of substance for Thorne!!!

Remembering One Life to Live on the 10th Anniversary of its Final Episode on ABC

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the final broadcast of ABC’s One Life to Live. The beloved soap opera was canceled back in April of 2011 along with All My Children, and continued to air till January 13, 2012.

As the story goes, after some false starts, the show wound up in the hands of Prospect Park in an attempted online reboot of the series which lasted some 40 plus episodes, and one season on Hulu in 2013.

Agnes Nixon’s brainchild first took to the airwaves back on July 15, 1968 on ABC, and tackled many of the social issues of our time, delivered unforgettable performances, beloved soap on-screen couples, and often humorous and edgy storylines.

When the soap was initially canceled by ABC, we took to our former site to share our thoughts in the piece here back in 2011.

At the end of its 43-year-run it was then EP Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati who took the show to third place in the ratings among six soaps, and delivered a one-two punch of heart, humor, and drama to close out the ABC run of  One Life. (We have posted the final episode below).

Through the years the actors who graced the screen were ,and are, some of the all-time great actresses including: Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser, Judith Light, Jessica Tuck, Susan Haskell, and so many more.

It also brought us the talented actors including: Al Freeman Jr., Roger Howarth, Trevor St. John, Gerald Anthony, Michael Zaslow, Robert S. Woods, Ryan Phillippe, Nathan Fillion, and the list goes on.

Below, rewatch the final episode, and the extremely well-crafted and delivered speech given by the character of Viki on the penultimate episode, how soap operas touch so many lives a la “Fraternity Row” (But, as we all know, the show was speaking directly to the longtime viewers at home about their cancellation!)

Those videos are followed two emotional interviews we conducted on the final press day of ABC’s One Life to Live with Kassie DePaiva and Kristen Alderson, then Hillary B. Smith and Robert S. Woods that we are reposting here.

Now, share your thoughts and remembrances of when you watched the final episodes of One Life to Live, and how you still miss it to this day via the comment section.

Former Guiding Light star, Robert Newman (Ex-Josh Lewis) shared his enthusiasm and ‘thank you’s’ after his casting news went viral, that he is replacing Richard Burgi in the role of Ashland Locke on The Young and the Restless.  Burgi was let go after not adhering to Y&R’s Covid protocols, according to the actor himself.

Meanwhile, Newman took to his Facebook page and made this statement: “Thanks to everyone for the sweet posts and messages about my joining the cast of Y&R. I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve had great respect for the show and its wonderful cast for many, many years. I’m happy to be a part of it. I had a lovely zoom meeting with Josh Griffith and Anthony Morina last night. We talked quite a bit about the character, and I’m very excited by the scripts I’m getting so far. I’m scared to death, of course, but I think that’s healthy.  It’ll be a new adventure and I’m feeling pretty blessed to have the opportunity. Cheers”

Look for Robert to make his Y&R debut in February.

So, what are your thoughts of Robert coming to Y&R as the new Ashland Locke, after Richard Burgi departed over the daytime drama’s Covid-19 health and safety protocols? Weigh-in via the comment section below.
