Have you ever asked yourself, what if "All My Children’s" Erica Kane met "General Hospital" mobster Sonny Corinthos? Or wondered what might happen if "GH’s" Luke crossed paths with "One Live to Live" matriarch Viki Banks? 

You can visit ABC.com and Soapnet.com in July for the answer to those and other hypothetical meetups.

In a 10-part webisode series that also will air in cut-down versions on ABC Daytime and cable’s SoapNet, characters from various soap operas will interact. "One Life to Live" executive producer Frank Valentini directs the webisodes.
