Snoop returns to Llanview!  It has just been announced that Prospect Park/The Online Network has partnered with Snoop Lion, aka Snoop Dogg, who has signed on to write and produce the new theme song for the serial drama, One Life to Live, premiering with all new episodes on Hulu, Hulu Plus, and iTunes on Monday April 29th.

The new OLTL theme song titled, “Brand New Start” speaks to the much anticipated series return and features soulful singer, Iza Lach, newly signed to Snoop’s Berhane Sound System label, and Snoop Lion himself.

In addition to producing and performing on the theme song, Snoop Lion will also be appearing as himself in new episodes. On the series, Snoop Lion is set to visit the fictional town of Llanview to promote his new Indie film, Reincarnated which documents his journey from Snoop Dogg to Snoop Lion. Snoop Lion began shooting multiple scenes with new and returning favorites including, Robert S. Woods, Hillary B. Smith, Corbin Bleu, Robert Gorrie and Kelley Missal on April 11. Iza Lach also appeared on-set to shoot the music video for the song on Wednesday, April 10.

Snoop Lion is no stranger to the cast of One Life to Live as he has made several cameo appearances as Snoop Dogg when the show previously aired on ABC.

“We’re thrilled to have the support of such an iconic artist, like Snoop Lion. To have him write and produce the theme song for this series and to have the amazingly talented Iza Lach on board, is just incredible. We are extremely grateful and excited for fans to hear the new theme song and of course catch Snoop Lion in upcoming episodes,” said Jeff Kwatinetz, Chairman and CEO of Prospect Park.

What do you think of Snoop Lion creating the new theme for OLTL? Excited to hear it?  And Snoop making another appearance in Llanview?  Let us know!

EPIC AGREE!!

I liked his cameo on one show, but to write something heard every show, every day, EPIC BARF!

WTF is a Snoop Lion? Snoop Calvin. Klein didn’t do so bad with that name. 😉 What’s so wrong with the old theme song? Too many changes will, just ask Ron Johnson of JCPenny’s, formally of.

I don’t like him period. Snoop dog is trash.
The actor playing Matthew is wasted. He could have played Cole fighting to get Starr back but that’s lost anyway, right?
He’s to hot for Matthew and what’s her name.

hmmm, well I’m not surprised he’ll show up in Llanview, as they have had many music stars/groups over their many decades on ABC…. but hmmm, writing the new theme music? That will be interesting.

think the last music I saw on OLTL was a “friend” of Antonio’s Nelly Furtado, singing a brand new song – heard it on the radio a while later after hearing it on the show.

I don’t think I want him re-doing OLTL theme song! There are so many song writers
out there! I think this one is a bad choice. I don’t want a hip-hop theme song for OLTL it wouldn’t fit or go right for our beloved OLTL!

Susan just because he was a Hip Hop artist does not mean that he is not knowledgeable in other types of Music. Maybe you should hear it before criticizing it? Calvin is a fan of OLTL I’m hoping the song will be good…

This is very exciting news. I am disappointed that my favorite theme song, “Here’s what you do when you don’t find the rainbow’s end…” isn’t being used. (I would love to hear Kassie DePaiva do a studio recorded version.) I am by no means a fan of rap or hip hop but I know that Snoop is a very well respected member of that genre and have enjoyed his many appearances on the show. The title “Brand New Start” is terrific. He is a fan of OLTL and appreciates the history and what the show and characters mean to all… Read more »

I like Snoop’s music, he’s a talented guy. However I am NOT happy they are changing our OLTL theme song. That theme is a part of the show. They should leave our theme alone.

Well, it needs a 21st century theme and it needs to leave behind the 20th century.
A new day!!!
It will be awesome!
I hope it gets a ton of younger viewers because that is the future of OL, a younger growing fan base to keep it alive.
Even in life the older step away for the younger to carry on..

this is an exciting adventure! Can’t wait for thr 29th..

You are 100 percent right and everyone needs to realize that and support it. My mother and het sisters and tens of hours ands others tuned into OLTL in th 70 s and gave it the fan base it enjoyed for ober 40 years. The same is needed now. Need to get young people who watch TV on line to tune in. We will get to watch OLTL for unbothered 40 years till we retire and grow old!

Then maybe they should drop old Viki and old Dorian plus Clint, Bo, and Nora from the old 2oth century according to your ignorant thinking. Im in my early 20s and like the last opening number just fine but im okay with Snoop doing a new theme. Hes talented and my husband is a fan and will be watching for the first time! It does need a younger audience to keep the show moving forward but at the moment it still needs its more reliable and more faithful older fans to help make it a success. If it wasnt for… Read more »

Again, they are going for younger demographic why would they use an old, tired theme or re-purpose one from the 80s?! You guys need to give it a rest. If you think this is going to be the show you remember from 2 years ago, you’re going to be sadly disappointed. Just embrace the changes and go with the new, modern version of OLTL and if it isn’t your cup of tea after viewing it, then stop watching and complaining and let the others enjoy it.

I can’t wait for the new One Life To Live!! I totally AGREE with Kelly!! Obvi the last OLTL was canceled so of course they will bring a different newer version back. And I know it’s gonna be better than ever!!! I hope to see some of the older younger cast that has not been on in a while. But if not, I will take what ever!! I am so excited for OLTL to be back on!!!

I love the name of the song, but I hope the tune will be catchy,memorable and speak to younger viewers as well as older viewers. It is a “Brand New Start”, but many viewers have watched for years. I need to know it has the approval of Erika, Kassie, and of course, Agnes Nixon.

Miss Tiff

I like Snoop & like his song they used in the opening credits the last time he was on the show. I can live with it, I guess I don’t have a choice. That being said, I would love it if they would use the Peabo Bryson version. I remember when he sang it on the runway at Delilah’s fashion show at the hotel predating the Palace. That is the song that will be forever linked in my mind to OLTL. Change is difficult but it happens.

YAHHHH! The Snoop Lion WOW ,, now we have it going!
I feel the ‘younger’ new gen audience will really be in on this, the seniors will complain that it isn’t Guy Lambardo LOL j/kidding .. 🙂

I am lovin the new feel of OLTL .. It has arrived into the 21st century with a bang ..!!

Bickering and negative comments on a song that u haven’t heard yet, and so what you don’t like Snoop, he is there and it is his song, get use to it!!!

And it stated that he partnered with PP, did you ever think Snoop might have got involved with saving the show? Nobody thinks about things like that though huh? Just likes to complain alot. #1 Snoop wrote and produced the song, #2 he will not be singing the song from what we are told IZA is. #3 it is the show we are watching, we won’t be listening to the song for a half hour!

There are plenty of wonderful singers who will never win a Grammy or be a top-selling recording artist. Some of them will never even be famous. A Grammy or a number one hit is not the definition of talent and never will be.

You don’t like Kassie’s singing voice, that’s fine, we all have our likes and dislikes. However, if there was an award for tasteless, rude and uncalled for remarks, you’d win that award, hands down.

I have never gotten the whole allure of Snoop whatever he is this week. He’s a fan. Big deal. He really brings no value added to the show. He’s nothing more than an oddity at this point. If I have to choose between seeing Erika Slezak in a scene or Snoop Diddy, snoop gets kicked to the curb every time. Since the show is now half an hour without commercials, why pad it with crappy stunt casting?

To say older people step aside even in life for the younger people is this persons clever but not funny way of saying the soaps should be only for the younger viewers, and the older ones should not watch.

Hey Kim, SU is very one sided when it comes to age and other things….She does think she is funny, I don’t personally find her or her comments about older ppl funny…..My mother is 65 & has watched DOOL since day 1, she watched OLTL and AMC since day 1, my mother still rushes home to make sure she does not miss her show, before she retired she would have my dad tape them for her……If it was not the “Older crowd” there would be NO SOAPS for the younger set to watch.

I am a die-heard OLTL fan for years and I will be watching it on Hulu.. I saw an interview with Erika Slezak and she said it was a good song! So I will take her

Yes Aria, it’s my eyes that hear nobody can sing unless they have a Grammy. Put down your own crack pipe, little one, & join us 200 yr olds to welcome back the soaps!

Seems music is integral to the new OLTL. Have we not read about a DJ character and Starr Manning resurrecting her pop career? As for the theme, we will likely hear precious few seconds of anything as themes and opening sequences have fallen out of favor or late. I do hope it is something more tuneful than a full-out rap song which does not seem fit here.

And many here are right… the older viewers are more faithful and stick with projects longer. Do not alienate them. TOLN!
