Before you head to bed tonight, or stay up with anticipation and excitement that in only a few more hours brand new episodes of All My Children and One Life to Live will be posted for the first time in their new home – Hulu.com, NBC Today’s Mara Schiavocampo’s report looks at the behind-the-scenes returns of the shows including clips of the production in action in Connecticut in this Xfinity video!

As well, the segment look at the ABC finale cliffhanger of All My Children, where someone is shot after JR fires a bullet from his gun! But just who is it? Will it be revealed in short order on all-new episodes?

And while the NBC report also reminds us that Susan Lucci, the most heralded name in AMC history as Erica Kane, is not back at the moment as part of the reboot, One Life to Live’s major star, Erika Slezak (Viki) is … and so is Viki’s on-screen feud with Dorian played by Robin Strasser.  (would be nice if the voice-over announce on this piece would pronounce “Slezak” and “Strasser” properly, but that’s a whole other story!)

All My Children legacy stars, Darnell Williams and Debbi Morgan (Jessie and Angie Hubbard) are interviewed for this video package celebrating the returns of the series by letting everyone know how excited the fans truly are:  “They are counting down! We have our own countdown for the show, and they are counting down too!” Darnell added, “It just makes us feel like it’s going to be POW!”

Although this report also called AMC and OLTL “web series”, it has been made very clear by Jeff Kwatinetz and Rich Frank of Prospect Park, that they do not view these two soaps as “web series” but fully realized television style productions. This video also talks about shows moving into the digital age and keeping up with the time,  and series with dedicated fan bases like soap operas! Watch the video report below, and let us know what you thought of it?

Just finished watching both shows and it’s great they are back. It’s fun to see all the familiar faces. This is huge for the future of television. Love all the references to new technology. Both shows have a different vibe than the ABC versions. They both had a few words not allowed on broadcast TV. The OLTL club scenes were a bit too much. Already both shows have had more location shots than ABC did in a whole year. AMC has great credits and theme song. Love the ‘on the next episode.” ABC used to do that until they needed… Read more »

I just watched OLTL, mixed feelings, not sure it was that great. Maybe they were just getting people acquainted with the characters but loved the appearance at the end of the show.

I just watched both shows and wow! In terms of which one will last, One Life To Live unless the writers at AMC change their tune. I don’t want to give anything away, but AMC felt jumbled and disconnected. OLTL had perfect flow with the writing and the story they set up and picked up with from the end last year. The last scene on OLTL will have you jumping for joy at the future of the show!

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.
