    Yes!! And Yes!! IMO it’s not OLTL without Dorian and Viki. TPTB made a huge mistake when they let her go to Passions years ago but they recognized this and brought her back. Now we need to get Clint ad Bo too.

    I agree. I heard Susan Lucci on QVC and I realized how much I missed hers and Viki’s voice. I’m 47, been listening the them all my life. Like losing family.

    You know, think about it. They could totally do this show minus the entire Manning family. Especially since its a half hour format.

    Agree! Of all the divas, she’s one of my favourites. She deserved to be asked to be on the show and she’ll certainly be one of the best parts for fans. Her casting is news I love.

    I am Very Happy that Robin Strasser has signed on for the OLTL reboot with PP!!! Dorian was a very important part of OLTL and was Greatly missed when she made her exit due to a back injury before OLTL left ABC. The Cramer women are a great group! Here’s to hoping that Kassie Depaiva will sign soon too!
    And Dorian needs her Buddy Vicki to tangle with! Come back Erika Slezak!!

    It’s great that she’ll be on the show. One of my fave OLTL storylines was Dorian and Joey. I know, a long time ago. I don’t watch OLTL anymore, but I def think the show needs Robin and Dorian!

    The good news just continues to keep pouring in! Can’t wait to hear who else is signing on. And of course, with Clint and Dorian’s wonderful portrayers on board, I’m just biting my nails waiting for them to announce the next logical person to tent pole this show: Erika Slezak as Victoria Lord!

    I really hope OLTL gets Sleazak. She is perhaps the best actress on daytime tv and very credible. I know some will get mad at this but realistically I think she will return. she hasn’t had a lot offers for the last year. I think the saddest thin is that I know some hate Susan Lucci or Erica Kane or her acting – I suggest the problem might be Susan has become Erica on tv and her character is a bit out there. I have seen her and she can but the entertainment world wants Erica Kane not mousy Susan Lucci which we saw on Dancing with the Stars (which ironically shows the girl can act!) but I am not sure she can come back. She has two current contracts and I am not sure Devious Maids will spare her right now. One would hope they could make this a win win situation with Devious and AMC and heck, Deadly Affairs – Susan’s show about real life affairs that end in death. Susan is the queen of daytime – Deirdre, Melody, Robin, Erika, Genie, Kristian, Kelly et al are great divas but they do not have the star power of Susan Lucci. She is iconic and so identifiable with the AMC brand – they just have to do something to assure her comeback.

    I agree Skater Boy. I’m personally not a huge Erica Kane fan, but LaLucci is the face of the AMC brand IMO. AMC without Susan Lucci is like a PBJ with just the bread. Glad she has other gigs, but AMC needs her too. Hope they can make it so.

    Erica Slezak is the best on daytime tv but maybe she will feel that she was slighted by PP and not come back. Maybe she just plain retired and is enjoying her life. I hope to see her back. As for SL, she irritated the heck out of me too but when she was not on AMC, it just was not the same. Hopefully Michael E. Knight will sign aboard. Any word on the AMC folk?

    Best news ever! Now we need Vicki [ES]! They are essential.

    I am so encouraged by this.

    Dorian and Clint are back as definites. Now we need Vicki, David, Tea, Victor Jr., Tina, Bo (but I know that would be impossible since he retired.). There are way too many to list but there are some that we can do without. Starr stands out. Danelle would be great and Matthew. I would love to see that story line evolve. Oh my, I almost forgot Sean… definitely need him back on. I am so very fricken happy right now. I will take AMC and OLTL as a half hour show. Now the question is can we tape them or would we be able to buy the episodes on itunes.

    think they will move the taping of AMC back to NYC?

    Jim replied

    Both shows will be taped in Stamford, Connecticut, a bedroom suburb of NYC so any necessary AMC actors who didn’t permanently relocate to LA could easily work on the shows.

    Of course they need Erika back! And I hope they cast for Jack and Sam LORD. Jack can work at The Banner with Viki to spite “uncle” Todd.

    I am so excited. I was really sad when OLTL went off. It would be great if all of the original cast would be back as well. I wonder when it will be back on. I heard it was for online only and not TV.
