According to a report on the AP, Susan Lucci, who starred as Erica Kane on All My Children from 1970 until the soap ended in September 2011, is taking her soapy duties to the Investigation Discovery cable network.
Lucci will host and narrate a new series for the network called Deadly Affairs. "They are deceptive love relationships, love triangles, and betrayal that have deadly consequences, " Lucci explained. "And they end in tragedy."
Sound like a soap opera to you? Only there are no writers introducing an evil twin, or someone returning to life and dealing with amnesia. These are stories about real people in real life circumstances.
"Every day you hear these stories and you think, 'Oh my goodness!' Then they disappear. You don't know what happened next, and you don't know why they happened," said Lucci. "I'm hoping that, in exploring them, we'll shed some light on human nature."
Lucci goes on to remind us that as Erica Kane she did some terrible things, but she was punished for those misdeeds. She was in jail several times. Describing Deadly Affairs as a real-life soap, she is excited about hosting the show, calling it a perfect match, for the once former Erica Kane."I miss Erica tremendously," she shared.
Investigation Discovery has ordered 10 episodes and filming will begin in March for a fall debut.
