MyNetworkTV isn't doing much promotion for these last two telenovelas, and without promotion outside of running on the network itself, no one will know to watch. So help me out!

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- From rags to riches, Alicia Leigh Willis leaves behind the troubled Courtney Matthews-Jacks and steps into the role of the "American Heiress."
Alicia Leigh Willis of “General Hospital” fame stars as the privileged Elizabeth Wakefield in MyNetwork TV’s new telenovela, "American Heiress". Leaving her family behind for a two-month long vacation, Elizabeth first encounters pilot JD Bruce (Carter MacIntyre) when boarding her family’s plane.
The sparks begin to fly almost instantaneously. Each represents everything the other is not. She’s the spoiled rich girl whereas he’s the roughneck former Air Force pilot. But when their plane ride is unexpectedly cut short by a near-fatal crash, the two will have to work together in order to survive.
The series focuses on the Wakefield family and those around them.
In addition to her four-year stint on “General Hospital”, Willis’ acting credits include “Another World,” “7th Heaven,” and a recent guest appearance on “CSI: Miami.” Willis was nominated for an Emmy for her work on “General Hospital” in 2003 and again in 2004.
