All My Children to Air Epic Dance Marathon

by at . Comments

Fact meets fiction in an upcoming All My Children storyline.

The soap opera will air a 10-episode long dance marathon, headlined by Susan Lucci and Cameron Mathison, both of whom have appeared on Dancing with the Stars. Its plot basis will be to pull residents of Pine Vallery together in an effort to help Erica (Lucci) raise funds for starving kids in Africa.

According to the rules of the telethon, couples must maintain physical contact and never stop moving. Breaks will be rewarded to those that deliver major donations from viewers. Naturally, some sex and mayhem ensue.

“We’ve got characters making time for a five-minute quickie, there are fights in the ladies room, a little stalking, a possible murder. It’s fun!” said producer Julie Hanan Carruthers. Things also get a little goofy. “I promise you a chicken dance with full cast participation. You haven’t lived until you’ve seen Thorsten Kaye [Zach] doing the finger snap.”

The storyline will run from September 17-30.

Maggie Stone: I wonder if it's the number of nights that really matter. I mean, love, it's more than just the physical part. It's whether or not you connect. You can't plan who you fall in love with.
Jamie Martin: Well, how do you even know if it's real? I mean, so many people fall in love and go through the motions, but it's not even close.
Maggie Stone: Maybe some people don't even get to have it.
Jamie Martin: Or they don't recognize it when it comes along.
Maggie Stone: Or when you do finally get it so deep it's a part of you, only to have it taken away. You know, when I - when we couldn't find Bianca, I experienced an emptiness I've never felt before, I mean, like what it would be like if Bianca had never surfaced again. I had to put that out of my mind. I had to forget it.
Jamie Martin: It's complicated - love. It's so unique every time, with every person. And when the real thing comes along, I guess we just have to hope we see it.
Maggie Stone: Or hold onto it.
