One Life to Live continues to make great strides in getting the word out there about what is arguably once again the best soap opera on daytime. Executive producer Frank Valentini recently dished about the sudser and his career to Entertainment Weekly. Of course my favorite part of the chat was when Valentini touted OLTL's internet popularity!
The future for OLTL is bright, he says, in the short term (surprises planned for Valentine’s Day, more guests like Kourtney Kardashian and Wendy Williams) and in the long term, even as they fend off daytime contenders like CBS’s The Talk. “We continue to do fun exciting things. We have a very strong Internet presence and Internet fan base,” says Valentini. “I think that has a lot to do with our strong young cast. It’s been key to us to maintain the characters of Llanview while introducing new family members.
A daytime exec who actually values the web? Next I suppose I'll finally see Big Foot.
