One Life to Live Logo (2004-present)

One Life to Live (OLTL) is set in Llanview, Pennsylvania, a fictitious suburb of Philadelphia.

It became a sister-soap to General Hospital in 1968 and created by Agnes Nixon.  Nixon would later create All My Children for ABC in 1970. It would become one of the few soap operas that would withstand the contractions of soaps in the 1960s-1990s.

After 43 years on television, ABC announced that OLTL would be cancelled in early 2012.  The last episode aired on January 13, 2012.  Prospect Park acquired a license for OLTL and AMC for a potential November 2011 relaunch on their new The Online Network. Prospect Park couldn't get deals done with the three major unions, so a possible re-boot was put on hold.

In January 2013, news appeared that Prospect Park striked deals with the unions and completed the financing process.  On January 22, Prospect Park released an initial listing of castmembers who have signed on for the reboot.
