Soaps that share the same Sets

I was watching the OLTL episdoe when Judith Light was on the stand back in 1979 then I watched a clip of Greenlee exposing Kendall's fake pregnancy on AMC back in 2004(?). I noticed the sets look the same.

So, what sets did other soaps recycle?? I am not just talking about the ABC soaps but all of them in general.

^^:lol:

The example I see most often is Ryan's bar being recycled for Rodi's on OLTL.

A kinda half example would be Tracy's newly redecorated penthouse set on The City being recycled for The View.

Actually the Ryan's bar set was used as Wanda's Place on OLTL. Did that set later become Rodi's?

Yes Wanda's became Rodi's.

Ryan's Hope used some Dark Shadows sets.

Speaking of the courtroom where Karen Wolek broke down on the witness stand? I'm not sure, but I think I see the same set on EDGE OF NIGHT during those moments where Adam Drake unmasks Serena as her alter-ego, Josie. Edited by Khan

On GH Lulu and Dante got married in the AMC Wildwind chapel

There are probably more AMC sets being used on GH but I don't really watch it.

On OLTL they used the AMC Martin house several times after AMC stopped using it. It was Langston's house when she was pretending her parents were still alive, as just one example.

Also the dumpy apartment above a garage where Babe and Jamie lived on AMC was re-used on OLTL for Starr and Cole

The courtroom set utilized on OLTL for Viki's trial in 1979 did not belong to the show. It was loaned to OLTL by The Edge of Night, where it had been a permanent set since 1973. Edge also loaned it to Ryan's Hope for Seneca's trial of mercy-killing Nell in 1977.

In the 60s, a few of the sets on The Young Marrieds were recycled for use on General Hospital after TYM was canceled.

It wasn't the same set, it is a courtroom I don't see how just bc it's similar you would arrive to the conclusion that it is the same one.

Now that you've said this, saynotoursoap? It would have been [i]so[/i] awesome if OLTL's writers had written into the storyline that D.A. Herb Callison had successfully petitioned the court for a change-of-venue to Monticello, claiming that Viki's reputation within the Llanview community would have made an impartial and unbiased jury virtually impossible.

Thanks for the information! :)

I could've sworn that I read somewhere that ATWT got a lot of AW's sets after AW was cancelled (seeing as they moved in AW's studio). Is that true?

Kinda on the same topic, but when the Sandra Bullock movie, 28 Days, showed a fictitious soap opera called Santa Cruz, they used Days of Our Lives' hospital set. One of DAYS' recurring actors (a lawyer dude? A D.A.?) was even used as one of the soap actors. He was pretty much a piece of cardboard kind of actor, so you could count him as a re-used set too [img]http://boards.soapoperanetwork.com//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img] Edited by Gray Bunny

If Saved by the Bell sets still exist to this day (and they do), Santa Barbara's could certainly sit around for 4 years before Sunset Beach came on.

I wonder if Generations' sets were passed on to Sunset Beach too? They kinda had the same look to it, or maybe that's just an NBC thing.

The high school set was also used on That's So Raven and, currently, iCarly.

I would love to know if the foyer set in EON's Mansion of the Damned story was the Collinwood foyer.

On Paper Dolls, they used the same interior set that Knots Landing used for Karen Mackenzie's home. I believe both were Lorimar productions. I also believe the Forrester mansion on B&B is the same set or the same design as the Brooks home on Y&R.

Parts of Kim's kitchen on ATWT wound up as a WOAK set for years long after the kitchen disappeared.
