Erika Slezak on One Life to Live’s New Creative Team: “I Think We’re in Great Shape”


The first of Agnes Nixon's sudsers to ever hit the airwaves resumed production this week. To say the cast and crew of One Life to Live are excited about the reboot, would be on par with saying Viki Lord had a slight touch of mental problems over the years.

In the March 25 issue of Soap Opera Digest, Erika Slezak praised the soap's new brass. Said Llanview's grande dame:
"I have ultimate faith in [Co-Head Writer] Susan Horgan," Slezak stated. "Jen Pepperman, who started with the show many, many years ago, is, I think, a brilliant choice for executive producer because she knows the show, she knows the medium so well, and she's a smart cookie. I think we're in great shape, I really do."
