In another show of support for the online rebirth of One Life to Live and All My Children, The Online Network and Hulu.com have created two fantastic billboards!

The billboards can be seen if you are in Los Angeles (and we drove by the All My Children one!),  and they are incredibly heartwarming and clever! When was the last time you saw a billboard advertising your favorite soap opera?

Yesterday, All My Children’s Lindsay Hartley tweeted upon seeing the AMC billboard “Wait… what????Retweet!!! @TOLN @allmychildren #amc ”  AMC’s Denyse Tontz (Miranda) also posted an image of the surprising Billboard to her Instagram,  “Spotted this little gem on the corner of Laurel and Sunset AMC 2.0”

For One Life to Live’s billboard slogan is: ‘Who Says You Only Have One Life to Live?”  And for All My Children the slogan is  “You Took My Children, I Want Them Back!”

One Life to Live and All My Children have their online premieres on April 29th on Hulu, HuluPlus and iTunes!

So soapers, what do you think of the marketing concept for the billboards? Do you like the tag lines/slogans?  Let us know!

I plan to watch each episode several times to generate ad revenue for TOLN and HULU.

I enjoy both shows and think Hulu and toln Are doing a great job. I do not know what Toln has to do with Hulu. Can you explain that one to me. I think wattching the shows on my computer is great and the way to go. If I miss a show I can come home and watch it. TV is for the old days and recording a show is also.

Such an awesome show of support!! I almost wish GH would get cancelled so PP could get them too!! More support from them before start up than in 50 years on ABC.

You have to believe the entire TV industry is going to be watching to see how this turns out, if this a success.. we are going to instantly see internet TV production companies popping up everywhere trying to produce content of their own. The future is in internet TV, and the sooner a internet TV venture is successful the quicker we’ll see the death of network TV.. let this one be it. How fitting that the revival of soaps on the internet spell the death of the very entity that said soaps were extinct.

It should have said “You took my children, I want them ALL back!” LOL

I love these slogans, and the idea of bringing back the soaps. I just wish it was for As The World Turns and Guiding Light. 🙁

Agreed. I know it’s wishing thinking, but how about Another World and Ryan’s Hope too. Bringing back Dallas was a huge success. Let’s take a drive down to Bay City and open up Ryan’s Bar again. Until then, counting the days for the return of my favorite soap of all time — ONE LIFE TO LIVE!

I wonder if anyone outside the soap world audience would know what they mean…the amc one kinda sounds like a custody battle and OLTL kinda sounds somthing religous like there is an afterlife, im just saying! lol

Then again AMC sounds like PP battle with ABC over the OLTL characters while OLTLs sounds like PPs way of saying they brought back these two iconic shows back from the dead!

FABULOUS! If this is any indication of the writing and storylines, then we are in for a treat! Can’t wait. Easily ordered Hulu Plus yesterday. Can watch on my phone, iPad, computer, and TELEVISION!

Having worked in advertising for 20 years, I don’t love this effort. No web address, no photos, no logo… nothing. Unless you’re already in the know that AMC and OLTL are coming back, you wouldn’t know what these billboards are about. How many people are going to notice them and then go figure it out? There’s a lot riding on this effort to reanimate the shows, I would have done a more direct billboard even if it is more conventional.

That is the way to get people to the site to see what in hell is this sign about/curiousness ..
At bottom of sign it says …. TOLN and HuLu ..

It is just a click on your phone or tablet, to feed ones curiosity to check it out, what the sign is about, and once they are there, to watch, well…………………………………….!

What a waste of time. Let this idiocy end and get Todd, Starr, and McBain back on actual TV ASAP.

You sound like a disgruntled GH fan. Well we AMC and oltl fans deserve our shows too. You are not the only one who counts. And we are excited!

I think these web versions will have difficulty due to demographics of former viewers. Younger hulu users aren’t interested in soaps, my daughter laughed when I watched. TV soap viewership eroded greatly when anyone with a basic tv could watch. TV soap viewers were older and less affluent based on demographic info and I doubt they will watch in sufficient numbers in the restrictive online portal.

Yea right that’s why gossip girl, one tree hill, 90210, etc stood on so long because younger.viewers don’t like soaps. And guarantee you many of those viewers watch online.

I think the AMC one should say, “They took all my children. I want them back!”

I love them, but maybe AMC should have read “YOU HAVE MY CHILDREN, I WANT ALL MY CHILDREN BACK.

Have any other OLTL & AMC fans noticed, like I have, how ABC is going out of their way to push & promote GH here lately? I haven’t ever seen so much attention being given to a Daytime soap opera in my entire soap watching life….LOL I know they’re celebrating the 50th Anniversary, but it seems a little excessive. Why couldn’t that have happened for AMC or OLTL when they were on the air?

Young people will discern the two shows are former daytime soaps watched by their great grandmothers. They will not confuse all my children with gossip girls. Demographics were the downfall of daytime soaps, young people were not interested and did not watch. I say the shows, particularly all my children, have many challenges due to limited portals to watch the show. Many daytime viewers do not have high speed Internet, streaming devices or computers. I have all the technology but have mixed feelings and I watched all my children for roughly 35 years. The last ten years mostly bored me,… Read more »

All My Children Alum Cornelius Smith Jr. Joins the Cast of Apple TV+ Limited Series, ‘Five Days At Memorial’

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.

The series will stream on Apple TV+, and no word yet as to when it will have its debut following its filming.

 

Since his time on All My Children, Smith has appeared on ABC’s Scandal, and had recurring roles on God Friended MeSelf Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker and Manhunt.

Deadline broke the casting news.

So, looking forward to seeing Cornelius back on our screens? Do you remember his work as Dr. Frankie Hubbard on All My Children? Comment below.
