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 time for more ads. OLTL needs different credits and theme song, they not so good, and include on the next episode. Oh and TSJ TSJ TSJ! That was kept pretty quiet. Good move. It’s nice to see that PP listens to the fans.

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!

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.

Daytime Emmy winner, Jeff Branson is featured in a new drama coming your way on the new AppleTV+ platform.  Branson takes on the role of famous astronaut Neil Armstrong in For All Mankind.

Branson is fondly remembered in soapland for his performances as Ronan Malloy on The Young and the Restless, Jonathan Randall on All My Children, and Shayne Lewis on Guiding Light.

For All Mankind is created by Emmy Award winner Ronald D. Moore (Outlander, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica), Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi.
