I've got some big, professional news to report!  (Read on to find out what it could mean for you, too.)

I've accepted the job of writing the weekly wrap up shows for All My Children and One Life to Live's re-launches!

Both AMC and OLTL will air daily, half-hour episodes from Monday through Thursday, and then, on Friday, stay tuned for the wrap up shows, featuring video highlights from the week, exclusive actor interviews, special behind the scenes features and tons of fan interactivity!  (Official press release, here.)

My very first job out of college was writing the talk show, Pure Soap, for E! Entertainment.  When Pure Soap went off the air, I moved from Los Angeles to New York City to work for ABC Daytime and write a pilot called SoapLine (produced by ex-OLTL and Dirty Dancing Executive Producer Linda Gottlieb), which was to have been an ABC Soap talk show.

The pilot didn't get picked up, but I stayed on at ABC Daytime, writing and producing soap segment for the Mike & Maty show.  A few years later, I moved to P&G and the official websites, plus tie-in books for As the World Turns and Guiding Light.  I also developed two on-line properties for them, Another World Today and Mindy's Twitter, which officially continued the tales of Bay City and Springfield online after both shows left network air.

The Prospect Park web versions of AMC and OLTL are the next step in that evolutionary process and I couldn't be more excited to be a part of it!

One of the ways in which the Friday shows, MORE All My Children and MORE One Life to Live, intend to be fully interactive with the fans is to take live questions for the actors via Skype, Facebook and Twitter.

Please go to:

Or email: 

And ask your burning questions now!  Nothing is off limits!

I can't promise that they'll all be answered, but I can promise that they all will be read and considered.

The fans brought AMC and OLTL back to life, and the fans are going to be a part of its future going forward!

Congraulations Alina! The On Line Network has made a wise decision bringing you on board. Your talent and creativity will be so beneficial in promoting these revived shows. We can only hope that your former employer, Procter & Gamble, would see fit to bring back a few of their fan favorites to the web.

Love the recap idea.
I for one do not want to see a Matthew and Dani pairing. Did not like them the first go round. Love the chem between orig Matt/Des and recast Matt/Des. Don't like how it seems that relationship is being tarnished for Matt/Dani pairing. Love drama in store for Vicki and Clint
