PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 5 (UPI) -- The stars of "All My Children" and "Hot in Cleveland" are to appear on episodes of each other's shows, TV Land said Wednesday.
Susan Lucci, Michael E. Knight and Darnell Williams will appear as their "Children" characters on "Cleveland," while Wendie Malick is to guest star as her "Cleveland" character Victoria Chase on "Children."
"We are thrilled Victoria Chase will join the cast of 'All My Children' -- there are very few actresses who could pull off a dual role performance as both a maid and bartender. We hope she is up to the challenge," Julie Carruthers, executive producer of "All My Children," said in a statement Wednesday.
"There is only room for one Erica Kane in Pine Valley and Victoria Chase will unfortunately find that out the hard way," said Brian Frons, president of daytime at Disney ABC Television Network. "This is a unique opportunity to raise awareness of both shows with similar demos and we expect each other's viewers to follow from one show to the next."
"We're so happy that Victoria Chase will finally get to show 'All My Children' fans why she is a soap superstar," said TV Land President Larry W. Jones. "We're so excited to partner with 'All My Children' to bring to life this classic TV form when television worlds collide."
The story arc will begin on episodes of "Hot in Cleveland" to air on TV Land Feb. 16 and Feb. 23, while the "All My Children" episode will air Feb. 24 on ABC.
