ABC Daytime will premiere its new series of “What If” webisodes on abc.com and soapnet.com on July 12th, 2010. The innovative series will answer the question, “What would happen if two characters from different soaps ran into each other, what would they say?” In a 10-part series that will also air in cut-down-versions on ABC Daytime and SOAPnet, viewers will see well-known characters from ALL MY CHILDREN, ONE LIFE TO LIVE and GENERAL HOSPITAL interact with one another, and will be privy to their conversations. The webisodes will be derivative of the characters and their unique past, but are not related to current storyline. ONE LIFE TO LIVE's executive producer, Frank Valentini, is director for the webisode series.
The schedule is as follows:
Week 1 (July 12th):
- ALL MY CHILDREN's Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and GENERAL HOSPITAL's Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard): When Sonny's plan to use Erica as an alibi goes awry, his claustrophobia gets the best of both of them. (“Sonny and Erica: Love in a Time of Claustrophobia”)
- ALL MY CHILDREN's Ryan Lavery (Cameron Mathison) and GENERAL HOSPITAL's Carly Jacks (Laura Wright): Carly gives Ryan a refresher course on how to channel his inner bad boy.(“Ryan & Carly: How to be Bad”)
- ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Todd Manning (Trevor St. John) and GENERAL HOSPITAL's Damian Spinelli (Bradford Anderson): Spinelli's fear of flying frustrates Todd to no end and unexpectedly changes their flight plan. (“Todd & Spinelli: Fear of Flying”)
