Villaraigosa All My Children

LOS ANGELES — The legendary soap opera "All My Children" will feature two Los Angeles politicos playing themselves to celebrate the show's return to shooting in California.

ABC said Thursday that Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and City Council President Eric Garcetti will both shoot episodes at the show's new production studio near downtown Los Angeles this month.

The show recently moved back to Los Angeles after 40 years of shooting in New York.

ABC says Villaraigosa will shoot a scene with Susan Lucci, who plays Erica Kane. Writers are still trying to figure out a plot twist that puts the mayor in the fictional city of Pine Valley, Pa.

The network says Garcetti will appear with actor David Canary, discussing making Adam Chandler's businesses "more environmentally friendly."
