As many know yesterday was the first day of production for Prospect Park’s and The Online Network’s rebooted version of One Life to Live.  To celebrate fans from Soap Fans United traveled to One Life’s new Connecticut studios to welcome the cast back and to show their love and support!

Erika Slezak (Viki), Melissa Archer (Natalie), Cordin Bleu (Jeffrey), Kelley Missal (Dani), Kassie DePaiva (Blair), Robert Gorrie (Matthew) and Laura Harrier (Destiny) gave the fans who braved the cold weather some donuts and coffee with some lovin’ care! OLTL head writers, Susie Bedsow Horgan and Thom Racina also said “Hello” to the fans in attendance.

Carrying balloons, roses and banners/signs, to welcome their favorite cast members back that they have wished to see once again so much, but they also met some of the newbies to Llanview too!  The fans were thrilled and some (as we would all be) emotional chatted and took pictures with the actors during their short break from shooting.

Check out this video from the rally after the jump!  Then, let us know what you thought about the show of support from both sides – the fans and the stars!

I am thrilled that OLTL is returning. All fans need to watch and support the online format because if it doesn’t work out, it will truly be the end of Llanview.

Most likely no set tour for now because they dont want fans to know too much at the moment but it could happen later for some of you. I envy how lucky you got to be this close but i did once got to meet in person the lovely Jill Larson from AMC and Micheal Bruno( i think thats his name) who once appeared on the same show. Had they given me a cup of hot cocoa id had them autographed the cup, thats if i had known and brought a marker to write with, or at least saved it.… Read more »

He’s onlyvthere for four weeks then returns to GH. This video is enough to bring tears to my eyes. After spending three decades with these characters, they feel like family and I’ve missed them so much. I just wish we had word on Michael Easton’s fate as well as Kristen Alderson. I have so much respect for these actors and want the best for them.

The whole video was so nice. Thanks to the fans that were able to be out there to express what so many of us feel to the actors of OLTL. And Thank You to the actors who brought out coffee and doughnuts (?) and posed for pictures. It was very sweet of them to take the time to do that.

Now, tell me, what night time show has that kind of interaction between actors and fans? None, I bet. Daytime fans are phenominal!

During all the effort put in by our group (Soap Fans United) and my multiple trips to Stamford to secure permits, etc. (all the Stamford officials were amazingly helpful and congenial) I would never have dared dreamed that we would be received and honored by the cast, writers and production team as we were on 3/18! And the privilege of meeting Erika Slezak…simply beyond belief!

They should try to get Ellen Holly, if she would do it, make guest appearances as Destinys mother/grandmother on OLTL. I Know she played Carla but that was long ago, and it wouldnt be no different than Francescs James returning to AMC as a different character. It would be like a nod to the shows original beginnings.

Does anyone know where I could download the mp3 of Kelley Missal (Dani) “Everything I ever learned”
Omg I’d be so happy if someone could tell me

This is why we love OLTL. The fans just have to be supportive and make ABC see the big mistake they made in taking this show off the air. I really believe this is going to be a hit. Will be watching everyday that it is on. If Michael Easton doesn’t return perhaps John McBain can be re-cast. Just a thought.

CBS Cancels ‘All Rise’ Featuring Soap Alums Wilson Bethel and Marg Helgenberger

The cancellations continue and now comes word via CBS they have chosen not to renew the legal courtroom drama, All Rise.

The series aired for two seasons and featured in its ensemble cast, former The Young and the Restless star, Wilson Bethel (Ex-Ryder) and former Ryan’s Hope favorite, Marg Helgenberger (Ex-Siobhan).

The final episode will air on Monday, May 24th.

 

All Rise has also seen plenty of drama behind the scenes this year when the All Rise creator and showrunner, Greg Spottiswood was ousted amid allegations of unprofessional conduct in the series’ writers room where he offered up offensive and racially insensitive language.

Since his departure, Dee Harris-Lawrence had served as the one and only showrunner for the series.

So, did you enjoy All Rise? Where do you hope Wilson and Marg turn up next? Comment below.

‘This Is Us’ Season 6 to have Midseason Premiere and 18 Episode Order as It Concludes

The beloved Pearson family drama This Is Us will end after its sixth and final season, and news today from NBC executives Susan Rovner and Frances Berwick revealed that when the show returns for its last run, it will have a midseason, not a fall, premiere date.

Add to that, the fact that the show will wrap with an 18-episode order.  The execs shared to TV reporters and outlets including Deadline: “We know that saying goodbye to the Pearsons is going to be hard enough. So what we wanted to do is honor the fans and get them as close to an uninterrupted run as we could, which is only possible in midseason,” said Berwick.

Susan Rovner expressed: That by starting the story midseason, it will help make the send-off “a great event for the fans to enjoy.” She went on to say, “I think in Dan’s (Fogelman) hands, it’s going to be fantastic.”

In response to the announced season six conclusion, creator Dan Fogelman tweeted: “Whoever casually first said ‘All good things must come to an end’ never had to end their favorite thing. While sad to have just 1 season left, also grateful to NBC for letting us end the show how, and when, we always intended. We’ll work hard to stick the landing.”

For the past five season the cast has featured: Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown,Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan, and there are still two more episodes of the current season, until the season finale on May 25th in a special time 10 p.m. ET/PT.

So, are you ready to say goodbye to the story of Randall, Kevin, and Kate and the rest of the family? Comment below.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.
