ABC's Revolution Begins In Mid-January 2012
ABC won’t be leaving any gaps between the end of their long-running soap One Life To Live and the upcoming new show The Revolution, unless you count the weekend. The network has announced that the new daily series will take over the OLTL afternoon time-slot beginning the Monday after the soap opera goes off the air for good.
One Life To Live is set to wrap up forever on Friday, January 13th and it doesn’t look like it will be continuing online, so fans should probably make their peace with the series demise before January. In the meantime, according to Deadline, ABC has The Revolution set to take over the 2:00 p.m. spot on weekdays, beginning Monday, January 16, 2012.
The Revolution is an hour-long show that focuses on personal growth and “lifestyle transformations.” The series will include some familiar faces, including fashion expert Tim Gunn, fitness trainer Harley Pasternak, and singer (and former American Idol contestant) Kimberley Locke. Ty Pennington, and Doctors Jennifer Ashton and Tiffanie Davis Henry will also be among the experts featured on the series.
Each week, the series will look at one woman’s attempt to change her life over the course of five months. ABC describes the series as a “one-stop shop for better living.” It's certainly a shift from soap operas. While drama is likely to be a part of The Revolution, this series sounds like it's more focused on the reality of self-improvement than the escape from reality soap fans are used to. It'll be interesting to see how people take to it.
