David Fumero (Cristian) and Melissa Archer (Natalie) OLTLFrank Valentini Named Executive Producer of One Life to Live

Frank Valentini has been named executive producer of One Life to Live effective immediately, it was announced today by Brian Frons, president ABC Daytime.  The 17-year veteran of OLTL most recently served as the senior supervising producer/director of the Emmy Award-winning drama.

“Frank’s extensive history with the show and his collaborative relationship with the actors, writers and production team will make him an ideal leader in building on the core strengths of OLTL,” said Frons.  “Frank has the literally lived Llanview for 17 year, and has the past, present, and future of the town and characters in his heart and soul.  I would also like to thank departing executive producer, Gary Tomlin, for all his hard work and innovations during his two years at OLTL.”

Valentini has held various positions at OLTL, including associate director, stage manager, and coordinating producer.  In addition to his duties on OLTL, he has served on the Board of Directors for the New Group Theatre Company, and is currently on the Advisory Board for Population Communications International (PCI).  (See Soapdom’s cover story on the Sentinel for Health Awards for more on PCI.)

Valentini has a vast knowledge of contemporary music, which he acquired when he served as a radio station music director, talent scout for Steam Records, and freelance writer for VH-1.  He received his degree in Film & Television Production from the University of Buffalo.  In 2002 he became a published photographer.
