Get Your Double Dose of Teen Angst on SOAPnet

Two popular primetime teen dramas have been added to the SOAPnet cable channel’s new line-up. Whether you want to relive the drama or catch what all the hype was about, starting April 9th you can watch “The O.C.” and “One Tree Hill” weekday afternoons.

SOAPnet is also shuffling their roster of daytime soaps. Here’s the new schedule: “One Tree Hill” at 5 p.m.; “The O.C.” at 6 p.m.; “Days of Our Lives” at 7 p.m.; “All My Children” at 8 p.m.; “One Life to Live” at 9 p.m.; “General Hospital” at 10 p.m.; and “The Young and the Restless” at 11 p.m.

The hit CW series “One Tree Hill” takes place in a small North Carolina town (filmed in the charming coastal town of Wilmington, N.C.) and focuses on the lives of two brothers. One is the popular basketball player Nathan (James Lafferty), the other an outsider but also talented B-baller Lucas (Chad Michael Murray). Incidentally, “Guiding Light” fans might recognize Bethany Joy Galeotti (formerly Joie Lenz), who played Michelle Bauer Santos circa 1998-2000 and portrays Haley Scott on "OTH."

“The O.C.” is set on the West Coast, in the affluent Orange County, Calif., and tells the story of Ryan Atwood (Ben McKenzie), a troublemaker adopted by public defender Sandy Cohen (Peter Gallagher). He soon falls for Marissa Cooper, played by fashion- and gossip-blog icon Mischa Barton.

So there you have it, two more reasons to watch SOAPnet, and if you don’t have the channel, call your local cable provider before you go into withdrawal!

Don't forget Bethany Joy was also Clone Reva before she signed on as Michelle. ;)
