Soap Opera Network got their hands on the first look video promotional materials for The Chew, the replacement for All My Children, hosted by Mario Batali, Clinton Kelly, Carly Hall, Michael Symon and Daphne Oz, (daughter of Dr. Oz!) and, The Revolution, the replacement series for One Life to Live.
The Revolution features Tim Gunn, Harley Pasternak, and Kimberley Locke as co-hosts who take woman on a 360 degree metamorphosis. ABC Daytime is launching these new series under the new promotional banner/campaign for the day-part; It’s a Brand New Day. Materials for the campaign will be sent out to advertisers and press outlets beginning next week as the network presents its 2011-2012 Upfronts at Lincoln Center in New York City on Tuesday, May 17. This is also the place that soap protesters will be making their voices heard in defiance of the decision by the network to cancel AMC and OLTL.
Since The Revolution is premiering on Monday, January 23rd, that would mean that One Life to Live’s last airdate would then make sense to be Friday, January 20, 2012. The last episode of OLTL had been in question as to which Friday in January would be the last time we see the residents of Llanview.
Make sure to watch the new series promos and then let us know what you think of them. We are sure everyone has something to say or a comment to share on this.
