OLTL's Jerry verDorn reveals,"Prospect Park purchased all of our sets last month & the wardrobe dept inventory!"

Courtesy/ABC

The one and only Jerry verDorn (Clint Buchanan) of One Life to Live was the special guest today on the latest edition of the Blog Talk Radio Network series, Llanview PA. Radio .  During his interview, the hosts, Thomas and Trudy,  mentioned that when the show moves online via Prospect Park it may not be the same One Life to Live, but verDorn interjected and let it be known just how much of Llanview is coming with the show!

Jerry verDorn: “Well, I know something. We had a meeting with Prospect Park a couple of weeks ago. And the two guys who run the place, very innovative fellows,  assured us that they did not purchase our shows just to gut them and put them up with someone else’s name on it. (referring to both AMC & OLTL)  And you can believe them or not believe them, but they have been backed up by the fact that they purchased all of our sets last month and that is a tremendous amount of money spent. They purchased the wardrobe department and all of their inventory… and so the same sets and the same costumes and props are going to be there.  Once they agree to the basic actor agreement from the union, you will hear what actors are going to be there. My guess is a great majority of the actors will be there because we are not switching coasts. We are staying on the northeast.  So that is what I know.”

So what do you think of that soapers?  Looks like Prospect Park is doing their best to keep as much of Llanview intact when it makes it transition online and quite possibly to a rumored cable network too…did I hear Bravo?  Stay tuned.

on Bravo would be fantastic! I am so thankful they purchased the sets. Llanfair would not feel the same, and the Buenos Dias.

This is a good sign….. I am so excited for this. I hope that they find a cable network for them. I don’t care if it’s on Bravo, TBS, USA or A&E…..I’ll watch. Of course, I’ll watch it online too, but I pray that they can find a cable network, because I have a feeling that it will work out so much better on a cable network. Way to Go Prospect Park!!!

Just listened to that interview. It was really solid. Jerry had a lot of informative things to say. I’m sure we will see him on the OLTL V2. Great actor and a caring man with all he does for charity.

Wonderful news! Continuing OLTL with the same sets and costumes is very significant, along with the suggestion that most actors will return. For the first time, I feel I can realistically hope to see OLTL again. If only the major actors who exited early can be resigned, the Llanview we love will live again.

I listened to the interview and Jerry mentioned he thought OLTL would end on a Friday on ABC and begin again the following Monday on Prospect Park (14:50).

That is the best news I have heard since they were cancelled. This is factual, and shows this really may work. Now, fingers crossed most of the actors remain (and who knows, maybe even some others return?) Hooray!!

Yay!!! I’m glad the sets will be carried over, I mean, what would OLTL be without or with an odd looking Buenos Dias or Foxy Roxy’s Hair Haven or the Angel Square Hotel? LOL. This is great!!! I love Prospect Park already!!! 😀 *thumbs up!*

That is great! Hopefully most or all of the cast of both shows will go to the PP version. I keep getting surprised with the new information that keeps coming out. Sounds like these people have money and quite a budget, especially buying the sets and wardrobe and offering Lucci the same amount of money.
Suck on that Frons and ABC, you freaking morons!!!!

Thanks for the interview! I must admit I have been quite skeptical about the move to Prospect Park. Now I feel pretty good about it. The idea that PP is investing large amounts of money into the sets and costumes is a huge confidence boost about the proper continuation of OLTL. I was also worried about maintaining our key players…however, if they offered the Great Lucci a fine salary- perhaps we will maintain our heavy players too. Here’s hoping!

Good news all around! Hey- ABC, suck it!

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.

Justin Hartley Voices ‘Superman’ In New Animated Feature ‘Injustice’

Here’s yet another role that Justin Hartley was born to play, but this time he’s doing it with a twist! Hartley is playing the man of steel, Superman, in the new animated feature from DC Comic and Warner Brothers titled Injustice.

However, being that it’s animated, fans can hear Justin’s voice as Superman.  This is the third superhero role in Hartley’s career having played Green Arrow on Smallville and then Aquaman for a proposed series from the same team.  Of course, soap fans love him for his roles on Passions (Fox Crane) and The Young and the Restless (Adam Newman), while primetime audiences continue to love his portrayal of Kevin Pearson on This Is Us.

In this new animated featured inspired by the popular video game, things go very wrong for Superman, when The Joker tricks him into murdering Lois Lane!

Justin spoke to TV Insider about taking on the legendary super hero via voice-over and shared what was the appeal for him to do. Hartley expressed: “I loved the arc of the character. I love the way it started and how you get behind him. You go, ‘This is very cool to see him at home and nesting and having a good time.’ And then all hell breaks out and I loved the idea that they wrote this guy flawed and this idea of Superman not having all of the answers… and sometimes, the answers that he has are outrageous. That’s a fun character to play.”

Injustice is out tomorrow on October 19th on 4K, Ultra-HD Blu-ray Combo Pack,Blu-ray, and Digital.  Check out a trailer for it below.

So what do you think of Justin as Superman? Comment below.

Looks like Melissa Claire Egan’s (Chelsea) maternity leave is soon coming to a close and she will be back taping new episodes of The Young and the Restless sooner than later!

Back on August 21, Missy and her husband Matt Katrosar welcomed their son, Caden into the world and since then fans have gotten a glimpse of her life as a new mama via her Instagram posts.

At the start of this week, Egan posted on Instagram: “Chelsea’s missed you all!! Excited to be back in Genoa City soon🤗 (sans the mental hospital scrubs, good for baby bump hiding tho!). What do you think is in store for Chelsea when she returns???”

And that’s a great question! What do you think will happen when Chelsea returns on-screen?
