'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live' sneak peeks
Everything you need to know about the online soap opera reboots
With the "One Life to Live" and "All My Children" reboots set to premiere online April 29, the first storyline teasers have dropped, along with a "One Life to Live" sneak peek video. MSN TV has the scoop on what to expect from the reborn soap operas and, as importantly, where to find them.
"One Life to Live" and "All My Children" are back in production and starting Monday, April 29, the soap operas will release new 30-minute episodes four days a week on Hulu and iTunes. Viewers have three options for tuning in: They can watch via Hulu and put up with 30 second commercial spots; subscribe to Hulu Plus ($7.99 per month) for commercial-free viewing; or purchase individual, presumably commercial-free episodes for 99 cents each via iTunes. Hulu Plus and iTunes stream content to tablets, smartphones or Internet-connected televisions, as well as 'old fashioned' computers and laptops.
According to an informative new interview with Prospect Park CEO Jeff Kwatinetz, Hulu Plus and iTunes will archive the series, which means fans or latecomers to the online reboots will be able to access every online episode released to date.
There have been a few "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" casting updates since MSN TV's last report.
"All My Children" lured Alicia Minshew (Kendall) back for at least one episode, while "Guiding Light" alum Paula Garces joined the series as sexy crime fighter Lea Marquez.
"One Life to Live" added "High School Musical" alum Corbin Bleu to the roster as The Banner's new reporter, Jeffrey King, and tapped Jenni "JWoww" Farley ("Jersey Shore") for a recurring gig as a sassy bartender at Blair and Cutter's new club. Aussie DJs Nervo will also make an appearance at the Llanview hot spot. The reboot has also seen a behind the scenes shakeup, with co-head writer Susie Bedsow Horgan stepping down.
