Entertainment: One Life to Live (1977 Cast photo. Back, from left: Julia Montgomery, Farley Granger. Front, from left: Jameson Parker, Teri Keane)


American soap opera (often abbreviated as OLTL) broadcast on the ABC television network for more than 43 years, from 15 July 1968 to 13 January 2012, and then on the internet as a web series on Hulu and iTunes via The Online Network from 29 April to 19 August 2013. Created by Agnes Nixon, the series was the first daytime drama to primarily feature ethnically and socioeconomically diverse characters and consistently emphasize social issues. One Life to Live was expanded from 30 minutes to 45 minutes on 26 July 1976, and then to an hour on 16 January 1978.

One Life to Live heavily focuses on the members and relationships of the Lord family. Actress Erika Slezak began portraying the series' central protagonist Victoria "Viki" Lord in March 1971 and played the character continuously for the rest of the show's run on ABC Daytime, winning a record six Daytime Emmy Awards for the role. In 2002, the series won an Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series. One Life to Live was the last American daytime soap opera taped in New York City.

After nearly 43 years on the air, ABC canceled One Life to Live on 14 April 2011. On 7 July 2011, production company Prospect Park announced that it would continue the show as a web series after its run on ABC, but later suspended the project. The show taped its final scenes for ABC on 18 November 2011, and its final episode on the network aired on 13 January 2012 with a cliffhanger.
