The Online Network’s One Life to Live relaunch has locked in the always dynamic Dorian Lord.

Suds vet Robin Strasser officially announced her involvement in the project early Tuesday, tweeting in enthusiastic, all-caps fashion: “OLTL LIVES AGAIN thanx to FANS & [Prospect Park] I’m IN & GRATEFUL.”

As previously reported, Online Network owner Prospect Park has first dibs on any OLTL characters that, unlike Dorian, relocated to General Hospital‘s Port Charles over the past year (meaning Todd, John and Starr), though not the actors themselves.

• The Parents Television Council is this week taking aim at… ABC and its sophomore drama Scandal, for last week’s “intense, explicit and bloody” torture scene involving a CIA brute and suspected assassin Huck. Citing television’s “failed ratings system,” PTC president Tim Winter stated: “This decision [to air an advisory ahead of the installment] suggests the network understood that the show was inappropriate for children, and they should have rated it as TV-MA.”
