Television Series with New Ideas

We are all familiar with the typical drama television series. The same characters and same plots are often overused and repeated too many times. Every once in a while, a new television series comes along that breaks all of the old ideas and creates a new premise. The new television series Queens of Drama accomplishes just that. This series follows a group of former actors and actresses as they attempt to create and produce their own television series. Some of the actors in the show include Sam Sarpong and Mark Zunino. The series also includes some well known actresses such as Crystal Hunt, Chrystee Pharris as well as Joan Collins.

The series follows this team of actual actresses and actors behind scenes and during actual shooting as they try to create their own television series. All aspects of production are left to these group of actors. The filming, casting, production and everything else that comes along with making a television series is left to them. At the end of the season, they introduce the series and hope to land a deal for developing a pilot episode.

One of the most well known actresses on this new series is none other than Crystal Hunt herself. Crystal Hunt has been acting for nearly three decades as she began in the early 1990’s. Hunt’s character Lizzie Spaulding on Guiding Light is perhaps the role she is best known for. This was an important role for launching Hunt’s acting career as Guiding Light was one of the most popular soap operas for a long time running. To be sure, Guiding Light set a record for the longest running American soap opera. It reached an unprecedented 57 years. From here, Hunt continued acting in soap operas and her next famous role came through the character of Stacy Morasco on One Life to Live, another very popular television series.

Beyond acting, Facebook shows Crystal Hunt leads an interesting life in her home state of Florida. Currently, Hunt resides in Tampa Bay, Florida. Although Hunt does not act as much as she used to, she is not done working or creating a business for herself. In fact, Hunt is the owner and founder of My Pet’s Dream Boutique which is a high end boutique for dogs. This boutique can be found in the Clearwater, Florida area and is the only one of its kind. Recently, Crystal Hunt also released her first full length film by the name of Talbot County.  Crystal has an acting reel on YouTube, and can be followed for behind the scenes footage on Instagram.

The Truth Behind One Life to Live

Some shows just have a way of really impacting life as we know it. One Life to Live was definitely one of those shows. This ABC daytime drama aired for over 43 years. For the majority of that time, the show was broadcasted on national television. However, with the new wave of television that came through, One Life to Live was one of the many soap operas to be given the axe. Instead, television stations wanted to air daytime talk shows like The Chew. Fans weren’t ready to say goodbye to this classic. One Life to Live was then transferred over to the Internet world. Both Hulu and iTunes went on to air new episodes of the series. In 2013, the show said goodbye for good and was officially canceled on all means.

A world without One Life to Live is hard to even imagine. This show had been a staple for so many people for so long. Opposed to other soap operas, this one always made sure to touch upon hard, pressing issues. Whatever was going on in the world, One Life to Live brought light to it. The characters were also individuals from all races and social classes. One Life to Live really was a gem for its time.

Something that everyone will remember from One Life to Live is that it featured so many well-known actors before they hit it big. Of course this includes the likes of Tommy Lee Jones, Blair Underwood, Ryan Phillippe and Judith Light. One actress in particular that really made her presence known on the show is Crystal Hunt. For those who don’t know, Hunt played the role of Stacy Morasco. She was on One Life to Live from February 2009 to February 2012. That’s not all, though. Hunt reprised her role twice, both appearances can be seen on her Vimeo, as a ghostly sort of figure.

While she has appeared in some feature films like Sydney White and The Derby Stallion, and recently Magic Mike XXL, Hunt focuses most of her time on producing movies. She just produced the movie Talbot County with her longtime friend. Hunt also owns her a high-end pet boutique store in her hometown of Clearwater. Follow her on Instagram to see which films she’s working on next.

One Life to Live was a show that brought so much joy to its fans. From the amazing cast to the incredible storylines, One Life to Live was exactly what daytime television needed back in 1968.
