Just The 10 Of Us. And By "Us", I Mean "Viewers"
Jamie Luner, alumnus of such quality television programming as Melrose Place, the Lifetime movie Stranger in My Bed and Just the Ten Of Us--and I am not at all being sarcastic when I say that. I hold a deep and abiding love for all of those programs! Just the Ten of Us is delightfully cheesy and Melrose is brilliant. Perhaps even brilliant squared--is coming to Pine Valley as a recast Liza Colby.
She’s 200 kinds o’ crazy, and she’s heading back to Pine Valley! Former Melrose Placesensation Jamie Luner has been cast as the new Liza Colby on All My Childrenand will hit the air by late April/early May. The notorious man-snatching trouble-maker — played for many years by suds icon Marcy Walker — has “reinvented herself as an attorney and will come back to town to reclaim her daughter Colby [Brianne Moncreif],” exec producer Julie Hanan Carruthers tells TV Guide Magazine. “We also find out Liza is secretly working for someone in Pine Valley.” Look for more scoop from Carruthers and an exclusive interview with Luner in an upcoming issue of TV Guide Magazine.
I would be looking forward to this if she were anything remotely like Liza (can you buy Jamie Luner as Brianne Moncrief's mother? Or as Michael E. Knight, Darnell Williams and Debbi Morgan's classmate?).
I would also probably be more excited if we had a writing staff remotely capable of handling Liza and Liza's history. Or capable of continuity. Or originality. Or writing dialogue that sounds like sentences humans would actually use....
