All My Children and One Life to Live cast members participated in today’s Hulu Upfronts in New York! The Upfronts focus on Hulu business—including growth metrics, new product innovation and upcoming content—with many of their advertising customers.

One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Viki) had her picture taken with some other very special attendees!  The one we love the most is six-time Daytime Emmy winner Slezak, striking a pose with former WWE pro wrestling champion Sgt. Slaughter as pictured here!   Later, Erika met up with actress/producer Eva Longoria outside the Upfronts!

Hulu’s Andy Forssell in his latest blog revealed that AMC and OLTL are the companies latest and most storied and respected TV franchises in their original programming line-up which will soon include new series: “Quick Draw” and “East Los High”.

I am a huge fan of Erika Slezak and I have been a fan of One Life to Live since 1988! Erika looks amazing in both photos! I am excited to see that she is participating in the Hulu Upfronts as well as promoting OLTL on tv programs and in online and magazine interviews. I wish great success to Prospect Park’s online versions of OLTL & AMC!

Hulu is going to replace broadcast TV. I love that OLTL is a piece of this. Really shows a broad range of programming and age groups.

I’m loving Hulu. I’m sure I’ll watch more shows on there now that I’m watching the soaps via Hulu. My daughter has been a Hulu viewer for years and I never gave it much thought until now. So happy to have my shows back!

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
