Former "High School Musical" star and recording artist Corbin Bleu has signed on to star in an online re-boot of the beloved soap "One Life To Live."
Bleu will begin work this month, appearing as Jeffrey King, a young reporter who comes to town (Llanview) to work at The Banner, a local newspaper run by Victoria Lord.
As widely reported, ABC canceled "One Life To Live" and "All My Children" in 2011. Following the cancellation, Prospect Park was able to obtain rights to produce new episodes for distribution via an online platform. With all distribution points and a number of returning actors in place, both "One Life To Live" and "All My Children" are to begin airing in daily half hour episodes, available via The Online Network and Hulu, April 29.
