All My Children and One Life to Live cast members participated in today’s Hulu Upfronts in New York! The Upfronts focus on Hulu business—including growth metrics, new product innovation and upcoming content—with many of their advertising customers.

One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Viki) had her picture taken with some other very special attendees!  The one we love the most is six-time Daytime Emmy winner Slezak, striking a pose with former WWE pro wrestling champion Sgt. Slaughter as pictured here!   Later, Erika met up with actress/producer Eva Longoria outside the Upfronts!

Hulu’s Andy Forssell in his latest blog revealed that AMC and OLTL are the companies latest and most storied and respected TV franchises in their original programming line-up which will soon include new series: “Quick Draw” and “East Los High”.

Those series will be part of the Hulu Exclusive Series that will be premiering as part of Hulu’s Summer Slate 2013, including “The Awesomes,” “Behind the Mask,” “The Wrong Mans,” “Mother Up!,” “Pramface” (season two) “Prisoners of War” (season two), “The Only Way is Essex” (season four), “Braquo” (season two), and “Moone Boy.”

    I am a huge fan of Erika Slezak and I have been a fan of One Life to Live since 1988! Erika looks amazing in both photos! I am excited to see that she is participating in the Hulu Upfronts as well as promoting OLTL on tv programs and in online and magazine interviews. I wish great success to Prospect Park’s online versions of OLTL & AMC!

    Hulu is going to replace broadcast TV. I love that OLTL is a piece of this. Really shows a broad range of programming and age groups.

    I’m loving Hulu. I’m sure I’ll watch more shows on there now that I’m watching the soaps via Hulu. My daughter has been a Hulu viewer for years and I never gave it much thought until now. So happy to have my shows back!
