Pinkins in Home.
Tonya Pinkins (ex-Livia Frye Cudahy) played Esmin in “Home,” which is the dramatic story of Jack, who suffers from a mental illness. Jack’s goal is to move out of the group home where he resides, connect with his estranged son, and build a life of his own. The show is now in post-production.
New movie for Amanda Baker:
You remember her as Babe Carey Chandler. Baker recently played Shipley in a new short film “Dig: The Incident at Sumter Plantation” which is about four history grad students who attempt to get to the truth about a tragic 1871 love affair between a plantation owner’s daughter and a freed slave.

Jill is part of the reason that inspired this show that I’m trying to develop. It’s based on my years on 'All My Children' and the contrast with people of who they are on-screen and who they are in real life. And it goes both ways. Some people are despicable on-screen and then the most genuinely kind people off-screen. Jill is one of those people. She’s just the kindest person ever."

Rebecca Budig has been approached by Prospect Park to return as Greens. Here is what she said about it on Twitter.
