'All My Children,' 'One Life to Live' Land Weekly Recap Shows
The Online Network is expanding All My Children and One Life to Live.
The web series -- which bows April 29 on Hulu and iTunes -- will launch original weekly recap shows starting Friday, May 3, producer Prospect Park announced Wednesday.
The weekly recap shows -- fittingly titled MORE One Life to Live and MORE All My Children -- will offer a behind the scenes look at the rebooted beloved soaps and highlight memorable moments from each series.
Original half-hour episodes of the soaps will run Mondays through Thursdays online. The Friday half-hour recaps -- hosted by former KABC anchor Leslie Miller -- hail from Tomorrow Productions' Marc Victor and will include interviews with the casts.
An interactive component allows fans to interact with the talent via Twitter and Skype as the recap entries will also feature lifestyle segments including fashion, beauty and relationship advice.
"We are truly excited about the opportunity to offer our passionate and loyal fans with yet another vehicle to connect with their favorite stars," Prospect Park founders Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz said in a statement announcing the news. "Creating relevant content that matters to our viewers has always been our goal -- this series, produced by some of the best in the business, will be anchored by entertaining segments that will be conversation starters and will be another way for our audience to get up close and personal with these two beloved series."
The recap shows come as cable networks, including Bravo and AMC, have found success with post-show recap talk shows. AMC on Wednesday announced a companion to Breaking Bad -- Talking Bad -- and renewed The Talking Dead for a third season.
