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.
