Wrong pic..sorry...AMC's photo is so much more classy and showing who's boss. Love Am sorry look at the difference in the photos...AMC's got the soft focus, wide sets, polished look...OLTL looks nice and slighly cramped not the polish gloss...we know where Anges is Wink OK by me because I'm so PSYCHED for AMC's return!! Love Love

Why do they have that chile who plays NuDestiny dressed like a fairground stripper? Sad

Otherwise, welcome back OLTL. Beer Love

Yeah, OLTL's cast looks a little sparse even though they only have four fewer contract players than AMC. It'll be interesting to see where the writers take both shows.

I'm very excited about both shows coming back.

Re the pics: That slit on Ms. Slezak's dress is maybe a bit too high. She does have very good legs.

I wonder if the shows will keep the daytime soap opera look or whether they'll look more glossy, like the primetime shows.

Let's not be reading into things regarding the photos, now. Whether you like one or the other is purely personal opinion. Both shows got the ROYAL treatment when it came to lighting, wardrobe, and styling. There was no favoritism regarding these shoots. OLTL was always the darker, grittier show of the two, so it makes sense that their cast photo is darker.

I can't wait!

LOL. Yeah, I'm ambivalent to the way she's outfitted. I think I understand what they're going for (provocative pose) but I think it's a bit over the top.

It's just a shame that Robin Strasser and Hilary Bailey Smith are missing. Perhaps it was a scheduling conflict that caused their absence but it's a shame as it is truly noticeable.

I don't know whether PP thinks about this or not but if a picture speaks a thousand words, they should have added Shenaz Treasury and the actor who plays Vimal. If this picture were to go up on Hulu, first time viewers might have seen a diverse cast in the photo and perhaps been intrigued enough to give it a try. I know when I peruse Netflix for a movie/TV show, my interest in piqued whenever I see a truly diverse cast.

On the other hand,

AMC's photo looks GREAT! It looks like one of those Editorial photo shoots-- the kind featured in Vanity Fair and Vogue!

Robin Strasser was Ill
Hillary B Smith was shooting Venice
ST (Rama) may have signed a contract after the cast pic was taken

I wonder if they'll go with completely different theme songs, or if they'll remain the same, this is very exciting!!! can't wait.

I am fond of Kassie de Paiva, the way people are fond of their kooky but well-meaning cousins. But dear God, Kassie--couldn't you see what they were going for in this photo? Couldn't you turn off the Big Smile and give us a little smolder? Predictably, La Slezak nails it.

The theme song (intros) is something I thought about, too. Are they allowed to use the same openings? Anybody know?

That OLTL picture looks like a porn ad. That woman on the right has her legs spread so far apart I can see her unborn children.

I understand.

This doesn't have to be the definitive picture for the revamped OLTL anyway. They reserve the right to update as they like.

I made the statement based on what I've read about PP wanting to build on the shows already loyal following.
Just my opinion that if the cast photo goes up on Hulu or iTunes, a diverse cast photo might capture the attention of groups of viewers who might not have thought of giving the show a try when it was on broadcast TV. People are very visual.

I notice that Roger Howarth is listed as a cast member, but not Michael Easton and Kristen Alderson. Does that mean Todd will be staying in Llanview but John and Starr are free to go back to Port Charles?

I read somewhere that OLTL is going to be edgier than it was on TV. Rumors say Destiny will be hooking to support her child and Matthew has been a deadbeat dad. Wonder if we'll get to hear Vicki "cuss" now that they aren't on network TV.

How exciting! Roughly two years and two weeks after ABC gave the iconic shows, stars, staff, Agnes Nixon, and us, the fans, a giant middle finger and the shaft, they will be returning. Even though I've known it was real for a while now, having a premiere date that is 50 days away just makes me smile.

These shows, or as my grandmother would say stories, need our support now more than ever. So much is hinging on their success. I was a casual watcher of OLTL prior to its cancelation where I would generally watch the first little bit if it was interesting after AMC, I will now be watching both fervently. I suggest that everyone else does too. These sister soaps have so much potential. It reminds me of AMC's final episode where Angie, Jesse, David and Cara discuss second chances and how they should be taken advantage of. Angie says that "One day our family and friends will die and they won't be back. One day they'll be gone for good." Let's make sure that day never comes for our soap families.

ROTF!!! Ferrari517, I thought the exact same thing regarding the woman on the right.

Other than that, Miss Erika is GIVING IT! WERK!!!

VERY excited, a little dissapointed that Bobbie Eakes won't be returning to AMC though.

So excited! Can't wait till this comes to fruition. So proud of Prospet Park for giving us a new series of on line television. As fans we can't complain. Hopefully if it works they can find a network to put it on.

I am intrigued and hope that they go for a more edgy and Dallas or Revenge type feel. Branch out from the same old crap and we can see the shows back on cable shortly. I see them getting picked up by Lifetime, Bravo, WE, Style, or maybe even TNT! Imagine TNT getting bold and jumping into the soap world! Lord knows it would be better to see USA or TNT offering an hour per day four days a week or heck even rotate the shows and do three shows of each per week with Friday's as a double up! Then they could run a marathon on Friday mornings before the Friday afternoon shows air! It would perfect!

I don't know the ins and outs of credits, but I wonder if RH is just a place-holder in the credits listing until they can slip in Trevor St. John--once his return has been confirmed.

Anyone else notice in the OLTL picture that Clint and Blair are holding hands and standing extremely close...will this mean they are now together??? It just would make sense to put Viki and Clint together (if they were together) When the show ended, they were the heart of the show...

What is this novelty with hearing Victoria Lord or Dorian Cramer swear? I mean, it's not in character for either one of Llanviews ladies.

I will also agree with the majority...AMC's cast photo is Vogue or Vanity Fair and works while OLTL is trying to be Maxim, but it doesn't quite work and I'm more of a OLTL fan. I do like that they put the cast in a bar setting...would have been more interesting to have them in action poses like one cast photo did with The Sopranos during one season when they were all positioned around a poker table.

Dannii looks like she don't know where she is in that hoochie mamma outfit and Destiny kind of looks like a hooker, which makes sense if she is going to be one on the show. Oh well, I am still excited nonetheless! I am still the biggest fan!

Does anyone know if the soaps will be available in Canada for free? I watched AMC for years and would watch it if I can. But at present I could not afford another expense.

Best of luck to AMC and OLTL

Does anyone remember Erica's twin Jane's last name? It wasn't McIntyre was it? I see a Jane McIntyre listed in the cast and don't remember Jane's last name. Wouldn't want that character back.
