Susan Lucci (Erica, AMC)Fan February on ABC Daytime

Well, guys, you asked for it, now ABC Daytime is giving it back to you!  Never before “scene” episodes of All My Children, One Life to Live, and General Hospital will air over the next few weeks as part of ABC Daytime’s first ever Fan February!

It all started last November when the call went out from ABC Daytime for you to tell them your idea for a scene that ABC would write, shoot and air this February.  Beginning at Super Soap Weekend, 2002, fans told ABC Daytime camera crews what moments they would like to see aired on these special episodes of AMC, OLTL, and GH.  Later that month, fans went to ABC.com and submitted more ideas.  But, there was a catch!  You had to submit your idea in ten words or less!  

Tons of ideas poured in!  A total of approximately 4,500 entries were received.  At a random drawing of all the entries, one fan was selected to visit the set of her favorite soap. Her name is Malissa Wong, a 19-year old college student attending California State University, Sacramento!   She chose to visit the set of General Hospital!

The fans have spoken and here’s what you want to see on ABC Daytime!

All My Children
Fan February Episode airing Wednesday, February 12, 2003

Michael E. Knight (Tad, AMC)Susan Lucci (Erica, AMC)I once asked Michael E. Knight (Tad) why Tad and Erica (Susan Lucci) never had a “thing!”  “That would be telecide,” he said with a laugh!  “Fans wouldn’t want to see Erica with Tad.”  Well, Mikey, guess what?  Wrong, you lose!  That’s exactly what fans want to see and on February 12th, Tad and Erica get married!   Hang on to your remotes as Tad, the Cad turned Dad, and Erica, Pine Valley’s ultimate Diva, walk down the aisle. The entire episode revolves around their wedding day! 

John Callahan (Edmund, AMC)Eva La Rue (Maria/Maureen, AMC)But that’s not all!  We all know that Maria is back in Pine Valley and she’s lost her memory thanks to the devious doings of Dr. Dave.  Edmund is beside himself that the love of his life has no memory of their love or their life together.  But on February 12, the tables turn.  Now, it’s Edmund who is in the dark, and Maria remembers all!  Watch the fun ensue!

One Life to Live
Fan February Episode airing Wednesday, February 19, 2003

Kassie DePaiva (Blair, OLTL)Kristen Alderson (Starr, OLTL)The movie musical “Chicago” is all the rage, winning Golden Globe Awards and SAG nominations.  On February 19, Llanview is “Chicago” as Blair (Cassie DePaiva) and Starr (Kristen Alderson) deliver their nightclub act!  Prepare for a musical blast when the curtain goes up!

Clint Ritchie (Clint, OLTL) (Photo courtesy Clint Ritchie Official Fan Club)What’s more, the Buchanan’s ride again when they join forces to battle the evildoer, Mitch Laurence (Roscoe Born)!  But wait.  It’s not only Bo (Robert S. Woods), Viki (Erika Slezak), Asa (Phil Carey), Max (James DePaiva), Jessica (Bree Williamson) and Natalie (Melissa Archer)!  Watch for the return of Clint Buchanan, whose portrayer, Clint Ritchie has been wooed away from his own northern California ranch to appear for this one special day in Llanview!  Stay tuned to Soapdom for our exclusive interview with Clint Ritchie coming soon and find out all about how Ritchie was courted to return! And why?  Because that’s what you wanted!

General Hospital
Fan February Episode airing Wednesday, February 26, 2003

Maurice Benard (Sonny, GH)Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is at the root of so many intrigues in Port Charles.  Both romantically, and professionally, Sonny’s life can be nothing but turmoil.   Steve Burton (Jason, GH)But there is one person who Sonny knows he can always depend on.  His trusted and loyal friend and business associate, Jason (Steve Burton).

On February 26, the entire episode revolves around Sonny.  But this time, Sonny’s not calling the shots.  Jason is!  Watch as the tables turn. 

Then, on a much lighter note, reality TV comes to Port Charles when we catch real life with the Quartermaines.  Ozzy and Sharon move over!  It’s Quartermainia, and boy oh boy, aren’t the Quartermaines the perfect dysfunctional family for reality TV?

Fan February promises to be full of surprises and funny business, so don’t forget to set your VCRs.  Stay tuned to Soapdom.com for photos of the shows as they are taped.
