One Life to Live is one step closer to coming back.
The daytime soap's former coordinating producer Jennifer Pepperman has named the new showrunner, Soap Opera Digest reports.
Pepperman worked on One Life to Live as a coordinating producer from 1998 to 2000, and as an associate director in 2010. She directed episodes of both One Life to Live and As the World Turns, the latter for which she won an Emmy in 2007.
She also worked as a production coordinator on Guiding Light.
After talks fell through for production studio Prospect Park to bring back canceled soaps One Life to Live and All My Childrenonline in late 2011, Prospect Park signed deals with the actors and directors guilds to begin production on both shows in the first quarter of 2013.
