"One Life To Live" — the network daytime soap canceled more than a year ago — embarks on making history later this year.

The soap opera, which aired on ABC for more than 40 years, will transition to an online version, marking the first time a network daytime soap has crossover over to the web. "OLTL" tried to make the move to the Internet but funding it was too much.

But earlier this week, Prospect Park, the conpany behind the revival, announced the cast for the revived series. No Internet address has been announced yet.

Among the cast members signing up: Erika Slezak (who played Victoria Lord Buchanan); Robin Strasser (Dorian Lord); Tuc Watkins (David Vickers); Robert S. Woods (Bo Buchanan); Kassie DePaiva (Blair Cramer, a role she has reprised on "General Hospital" earlier this year) and Jerry verDorn ( Clint Buchanan); and Hillary B. Smith (Nora Buchanan).

The cast includesJon Hamm, January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, John Slattery and Knoxville native Christina Hendricks.
