General Hospital Will Bring Life to Characters from “One Life to Live”. John, Starr, Blair and Todd are Back!

In an amazing move, ABC will allow OLTL characters to be integrated into the scripts of General Hospital.  The four roles played by Kassie DePaiva, Roger Howarth, Michael Easton and Kristen will be integrated this month, when production begins.

General Hospital made the cut and was kept on air after “All My Children” and “One Life To Live” were eliminated.  Any kind of integration was not planned because both shows were supposed to transition to an online format, led by a company called Prospect Park.  Then financing issues caused the whole project to be scrapped.  They released a statement late last year,

After five months of negotiations with various guilds, hundreds of presentations to potential financial and technology partners, and a hope that we could pioneer a new network for the future, it is with great disappointment that we are suspending our aspirations to revive One Life to Live and All My Children via online distribution,”

General Hospitals executive producer, Frank Valentini released a statement

 “We have a very exciting story planned for the citizens of Port Charles, with Sonny Corinthos at the center of it! I am confident viewers and fans alike will be excited for the arrival of John (Easton), Starr (Alderson), Blair (DePaiva) and Todd (Howarth), Incorporating characters from One Life to Live continue the legacy of the show as we weave them into General Hospital.”

Oh, by the way, Frank Valentini also executive produced “One Life to Live” for almost 10 years.  That’s why you never burn bridges.
