Oakdale Confidential:
An As The World Turns Novel

Wednesday, August 02, 2006


AOL announced that it will preview a beta version of its new AOL Video portal later this week. Available for free, the new AOL Video is an all-in-one, high-quality entertainment destination to find, watch and share millions of the best videos across the Web.

Among the channels to be offered: The company that put the "soap" in soap operas presents the P&G Classic Soaps channel, featuring episodes from "Another World", "The Edge of Night", "Search for Tomorrow" and "Texas", including some available for the first time since they ended their successful runs. In addition, this channel offers original companion content for the contemporary classics "As The World Turns" and "Guiding Light".

This is massively cool. I've been screening episodes in anticipation of the launch, and not only are they loaded with goodies like a music montage set to that 80s power-ballad classic, "Total Eclipse of the Heart," but it's also a treasure-trove of future soap/primetime/movie stars in their earlier roles.

See DOOL's Matthew Ashford as clean-cut Cagney on "Search for Tomorrow." Margaret Colin on "Edge of Night." OLTL's Catherine Hickland and Alex Neil on "Texas". Anne Heche on "Another World."

Plus a 14 year old Jane "Ally McBeal" Krakowski! Harley Jane Kozak before "Parenthood!" Kim Shriner between GH stints!

Not to mention future TPTB like Pam Long, Ellen Wheeler and Chris Goutman.

Make sure you check it out ASAP!
