BELOVED FORMER ABC SOAPS GET A NEW LEASE ON LIFE
It’s official! After months of speculation, production company Prospect Park has confirmed it will launch new episodes of All My Children and One Life to Live online on a new platform called Online Network. The two veteran former ABC daytime serials will serve as the anchors. Prospect Park signed agreements with SAG-AFTRA, the actors union, and DGA, the Directors Guild of America, clearing a hurdle in getting the soaps back into production.
“We thank the loyal audience and new generation of fans of both shows who have demonstrated that passion and exciting story lines are not just reserved for traditional television,” Prospect Park said in a statement. “Their enduring support encouraged us to move forward each and every day.”
Production on both All My Children and One Life to Live will begin in February, with more casting news and specific return dates to be announced in the near future. Agnes Nixon, the creator of both programs, will be actively involved in a consulting capacity on the Web versions.
