Show Summary

Premiering on July 1968, One Life to Live has followed the lives of the fictional city of Llanview, P.A. for over forty years. Originally the focus of the show was on the wealthy Lord family and the "normal" Woleks and Rileys. Although the Lord family remains very much a part of the show, the focus has moved to the Buchanans, Rappaports, Gannons, Holdens and Cramers, among others. Over the years One Life to Live has featured stories on interracial couples, personality disorders, drug addiction, gang violence, cultism, rape, time travel and even out of body experiences. Located only a short distance away from Pine Valley, there have been many crossovers over the years between One Life to Live (Llanview) and All My Children (Pine Valley), including a 2004 baby switch story that has spanned most of the year, and involved One Life to Live's Cramers and Buchanans and All My Children's Chandlers, Kanes and Martins. Following its cancellation on ABC, the show was originally intended to move on to an on-line network, but the plans for that were scrapped until early 2013, when the show was finally revived. Due to a lawsuit with ABC which was filed back in September that lead to Prospect Park to cancel both All My Children and One Life to Live.

    • One life to live....

      It is sad that the early days of One life to Live where not filmed and saved. The reused the video and taped over some classic moments with stars like Jameson Parker and gorgeous no good schemer Brad Vernon and the unknown actress who played Karen Wolek, Judith Light. The music to the show back them was REALLY good and was as much a p[art of the show as the outstanding acting ability of the actors. Most original writing controversial writing made it a must see daytime soap.moreless
    • Fate to be determined

      I just read that Prospect Park is gonna make a major announcement on Friday November 8th 2013 regarding the fate of both All My Children and One Life to Live. The lawsuit against ABC started several months ago concerning GH to kill off 2 stars from OLTL Cole Thornhart and Hope Manning. Not sure whether PP decides to cancel both shows or resume production. It's anybody's guess at this point.
    • Great cast, great story, great show!

      This show came to my attention because I'm a huge Corbin Bleu fan. I now love this show and watch it religiously. All the characters are great (in their own way) and it's just freakishly addictive. Just like in everything else he's done, I love Corbin's Jeffrey King and I think he does a great job with the part.

      For all you other Corbin fans out there, I just found out he's in a new horror movie called The Monkey's Paw. Trailer looks great, you can check it out here: monkeyspawthemovie. com. Corbin for life!moreless
