News for the week of 22-Apr-2013

by Carol Banks Weber

FX Canada will air AMC and OLTL on its premium television cable channel when new episodes begin airing April 29 via Prospect Park’s the Online Network. AMC will air on FX Canada daily, noon EST/2 p.m. PST, with OLTL coming on 12:30 p.m. EST/2:30 p.m. PST.

AMC and OLTL further entice prospective viewers and fans to start regularly watching with extra videos — “Meet the Crew,” “First Day of School” — featuring interviews and snippets at the iTunes store for download before the first episodes even air.

Prospect Park founders Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz add more relevant content to their two, revamped ABC Daytime soaps by making Fridays Recap Day. Viewers can catch up on their missed soaps, and more, on Fridays in jam-packed, 30-minute segments via Hulu.com and iTunes. Besides recaps, actors will also participate in Skype and Twitter interactions, interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, and lifestyle specials (beauty tips, relationship advice, fashion talk) related to the week’s episodes, all with anchor Leslie Miller (former KABC correspondent). Frank and Kwatinetz are excited. “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.”

AMC/OLTL creator Agnes Nixon has been allowed to creatively consult this time out. It’s an honor she’s thrilled about. She sees this next series as another step forward, similar to when she first started, remembering when soaps were first on the radio then moved successfully to TV. “Soap operas made history by being the first shows to move from radio to TV. Now they're the first to move from TV to the Internet,” Nixon told TV Guide’s Michael Logan in his April 18th interview. “People say we're being pioneers here, which makes me feel like I'm 150 years old, or that I should be on a coin or something. Somebody had to make the first move. I'm so glad it was us!”

Chrishell Stause (ex-Amanda) went for the DOOL deal as a brand-new character about to run into Rafe.

The Nashville pop-rock band Hot Chelle Rae will debut a new song, “Hung Up,” just for A.J. and Miranda May 9. The American Music Award-winning band agrees to play that song for Miranda, after A.J. — with his funky connections — makes the request.

Gossip for the week of 22-Apr-2013

SoapTown USA’s Loose Lips reported April 14th on upcoming AMC plot devices, including a death in the family, a vow of vengeance, Jesse’s big plans, “and Pete while driving back home to Pine Valley he sees something that will change everything.”

Cady McClain (Dixie) tries to do character acting as Suzy Fucking Homemaker with a New York accent in her tutorial on how to tune into AMC on Hulu.com, chain-smoking all the way. Thank god there’s no smell-o-vision. Unfortunately, god left the building on the disgusting close-ups of her impossibly, unnatural white teeth, red lips, and the ever-present cancer-causing agent.
