ABC Exec Nathan Varni On Future Of AMC & OLTL And Utilizing Characters For GH!

Now that ABC had the rights back to two of its most popular and beloved soap operas; All My Children and One Life to Life, fan groups and longtime ABC daytime viewers want to know what might happen with the two soaps.

And in addition, if they might now utilize characters from Llanview and Pine Valley and bring them over to GH and the town of Port Charles!

ABC executive Nathan Varni, who has GH under the series that he manages for the network, took to posting a message on the group ,“Save AMC and OLTL” Facebook page

Varni wanted to answer the inquiries coming his way about future use of characters on GH and if anything might happen to reignite AMC and OLTL back on your screens.

Check out his post after the jump, and let us know if you would be all for characters from OLTL and AMC coming on to the canvas on GH? If not, do you hope that AMC and OLTL will get a serious look from the network to possibly, somehow be revitalized? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I wouldnt mind seeing some characters making guest appearances every know and then but lets kill off Franco and Finn and bring them back as their OLTL characters…ALL MY CHILDREN have more than ONE LIFE TO LIVE on GENERAL HOSPITAL-lol

My solution is for ABC to cancel GH and bring back OLTL and AMC in half hour editions. Two shows and the same amount of soap time but without the glorification of criminals as the “heroes.”

Why drop GH, Alan? ABC should get a clue and reduce ‘The View’ and ‘The Chew’ to 30 minutes each, while adding AMC and OLTL in their places! Then, if that proves successful, reduce GH to 30 minutes and add Days of our Lives! ABC would be the King of Daytime with 30 minutes of each and every program!

PLEASE REDUCE THE VIEW AND THE CHEW TO 0 MINUTES…ANY SOAP OPERA OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF SHOW WOULD BE BETTER THAN THIS WASTE OF TIME….THE VIEW IS A HORRIBLE SHOW AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN CANCELLED LONG LONG AGO!

Sorry Alan, you lost me at “Cancel GH”, that automatically makes me want to disregard the entire rest of the post.

I would be all for OLTL and/or AMC returning in some form, although that seems like a pipe dream fantasy at this point. But certainly not at the expense of GH. If ABC thought the fan backlash they received when they cancelled AMC and OLTL was something, cancel General Hospital and see what happens.

I just heard the same interview that you did-and while it’s not entirely Varni’s decision, to have ANY ABC employee in power open to AMC/OLTL returning to be a net win. Do you realize that ABC has only had the shows back basically since New Years’ Day? It takes time for things to work themselves out. We as fans just need to keep showing that we want AMC/OLTL back…

only a limited amount of chatracters from the two late soaps should be brought back : maybe 2 or 3 from each soap . we don’t want amc and oltl brought back to life for the following reasons : we grieved a first time when frons got rid of them and a second time when prospect park gave up on them too , to make matters worse agnes nixon has now passed away . the 2 soaps as well as agnes nixon deserve to rest in peace . we grieved and we moved on .

Stranger things have happened! I’d love to see both series back and have characters cross over on all of them. That was what made ABC soaps so unique, it was all the same universe: Skye Chandler and Rae Cummings and that whole story arc. Bring Back ABC daytime with great storytelling, actors and the ratings will skyrocket, epecially with streaming and rebroadcaststing on Hulu. Even in half hour formats or rotating in mini seasons. We need a new Golden Age of Daytime Drama and ABC should be the home for it.

He did an interview today on The WSE Lounge and said because they tape months in advance it would be 6-12 months before any characters would even be able appear. He was asked about bringing these shows back even in 30 min episodes and made it very clear that even though fans wanted them back, advertisers have to also and that it’s very expensive to produce a soap and that ABC has no room in their daytime lineup even for two 30 minute soaps. As far as I’m concerned he all but said “it’s not going to happen” and basically… Read more »

It’s so sad to me but you are probably right, it doesn’t appear that abc-tv has much interest in doing a re-launching of either show. What is annoying though is that ABC never even considered ‘trimming’ down the shows to a half hour or combining them – they didn’t think of experimenting with another format, they simply screamed CANCEL and that was the end of that. When Prospect Park did attempt their on-line effort, well, the shows didn’t quite have the charm that they had had in their original ABC televised inceptions – I’m not exactly sure what the missing… Read more »

I agree they should have cut them down to 30 minutes (not because I didn’t enjoy the hour) but it wouldn’t have been as heartless to actors or fans to rip them off the air after decades. I would assume they thought it wouldn’t be cost effective; but who knows…maybe they didn’t even run the numbers.

As for now, I don’t think it’s ABC that doesn’t want to bring them back, I think it’s as mentioned, advertisers. They need advertising dollars to make it work. If the advertisers don’t see it as a lucrative demographic…we’re screwed.

I don’t know if i can see the shows back but just knowing there are thoughts on letting us see our old faves from the shows is very good news. I had been saying that Todd Manning and John McBain should be placed back on the canvas.

I love both Todd and McBain. Both of these roles are these respected actors’ claim to fame. I would love to see both Melissa Archer and Erika Slezak join GH. I have waited since 2012 for an Archer and Easton reunion. I would welcome it with these two playing any characters. They’re amazing and missed!

At this point I do not think the shows are coming back. That being said in relationship to some of the destruction of OLTL characters that occurred on GH,i.e. my beloved Jolie,, I would love to see those relationships fixed. I don’t care if Michael Easton remains Finn as long as we see Melissa Archer come on. There are a multitude of characters and options that could facilitate her presence. She could easily be a hot new doctor on GH that Finn falls for and those two could be the new Scrubs. She could be Sarah Webber, or even Finn’s… Read more »

They Could Have The FBI Could Assign John McBain To Port Charles. I Thought John McBain And Anna Devane Had Great Chemistry. Todd Manning Could Start A New Magazine In Port Charles. Maybe, Todd Could Take Over The Magazine That Nina Is Running. That Would Be Funny IF Nina Said What Are You Doing Here Franco And He Said My Name Is Todd Manning And I Am Your New Boss.

GH and Port Charles already are very full. Sometimes I am not sure who really are my core GH characters! I like idea of revival of each AMC and OLTL as half hours. But so much time has passed, and I am not sure what we would have anymore.

I’d like to see OLTL – especially John & Natalie McBain. Extend GH to 90 minutes and in twine them into GH with others in and out of their story lines from time to time. Also Todd & Blair on a regular basis. Hopefully we’ll see some OLTL characters soon.

Glad that ABC has gotten back the character rights for AMC and OLTL, but don’t see how that is going to work out for those of us who were fans of them from the start . . . My late mother and I could not enjoy the programs as Prospect Park produced them and I can’t imagine that beloved characters from AMC and OLTL would have the availability of most of the original stars . . . Can’t imagine any of the originals that we love would fit in with the direction currently of GH . . . The John-Todd-Star… Read more »

John McBain was an interesting character on OLTL but for me he never really clicked on GH, mainly because of his reasoning for leaving Natalie to take a job. If they brought back John, Melissa Archer would have to come on as Natalie too in order for this story to work based on their character developments. However, I like Finn. I think Finn has way more potential than Silas did because when he was first introduced, he was given a story of his own and has slowly begun to find a love interest in Hayden, while Silas was thrown into… Read more »

Well said, Jimmy. I agree with your every word. I also am finding the destruction of Alexis to be somewhat misogynistic in tone.
With Lizzy being rescued by a rapist (Franco) from her rapist and Alexis being saved by a man who tried to kill her (Julian) it’s hard to believe GH is being written by two female head writers.

I want OLTL back so bad. AMC was the first soap I ever watched but I lost interest in it but OLTL I had watched for over 20 years. I feel OLTL was wrongfully canceled at the time it was taken off as I think it was doing the best of the three soaps. I miss all of the characters so much and as much as I would love a reboot it would only truly work for me if they got a lot of the core people back and not recasts but the original actors. I would start watching GH… Read more »

I know just how you feel DAR. There was a time when I watched all 3 shows. I stopped watching AMC decades ago and dropped GH in 2005 because I was sick of mob stories. But, I watched OLTL from the first episode through the entire network run and the online reboot.

please give OLTL a hal hour time slot and see what it does over a period of time. even a small cast would work…but yes, i am certain it would work…. vicki, clint, dorean, david, blair, jessica, natalie….they are all you need to get the show up and running,,,,,

Llanviewer717

I do not trust the executives of the alphabet network/mouse company. But, since they do own the rights to all the characters and stories, OLTL and AMC characters could be integrated into GH. It would have to be done carefully while maintaining respect for those characters and their histories. If done properly, GH may experience an increase in viewers.

I don’t trust these people. I won’t be sitting by my television waiting for it to happen.

For me, the only two characters from One Life to Live I would definitely want to see come back to the General Hospital canvas are Starr and Todd Manning. The other characters can remain off-canvas. As for All My Children, I would’ve liked to see Greenlee come to town, but with Rebecca Budig as Hayden, that does not make sense any longer. Maybe Cara Castillo could come in as a new nurse at General Hospital?

It’s nice to get a direct response from someone involved in the discussions. I do hope they do something with the characters from these shows. But my ultimate hope it that they would bring back the shows. And once that’s done, we, as the fans, MUST watch them or there won’t be a third of fourth chance for our soaps. We have to do our part through thick and thin to keep our soaps alive.

Couldn’t agree more, audience erosion for our beloved soaps predated the myriad of programming/entertainment choices and platforms for viewing and delivery that we have today, so I’m not sure the model works any longer…or maybe it does and it just needs to be reinvigorated for today’s binge watching-ADHD-instant gratification attention spans? While our choices for entertainment have never been greater, it’s a genre that is tried and true and engenders fierce loyalty, not to mention a substantial (time) commitment from its viewers, one that we make gladly, if not religiously, thanks to technology! That is not to minimize the considerable… Read more »

What an intelligent and insightful comment – it would be wonderful if ABC would admit that these shows have an audience still – they never even experimented with different models of the shows (for example, as shortened or combined presentations) and they left many fans adrift.

You NEVER know – rumors are floating that Days of Our Lives may not continue – and I guess not everyone will agree but to me ONE LIFE TO LIVE and All My Children were superior to DOOL – I thought Dr. David Hayward was interesting as played by Vincent but on Days, meh, it doesn’t do much for me – the actors are fine, it’s the writing that is lackluster.

Since GH currently has NO VISION, nor do they have ANY central focus, I would absolutely welcome so many of the AMC and OLTL staple characters. If I can’t have the shows come back on their own, why not integrate the characters on to GH? GH doesn’t have anyone like Erica Kane. They don’t have anyone like Viki Davidson. They don’t have Kendall Hart Slater. They don’t have Zach Slater. They certainly don’t have Dorian Lord! There’s no Bo Buchanan, Nora, or Antonio. And quite honestly, even though this show has Michael Easton, they NEED John McBain! So ideally, I’d… Read more »

Um, even though they were different it was about keeping the fans informed. Many many fans are sad that Muhney left. Plus, if it were tabloid fodder, why is he not on the show anymore?

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Timmm, while I do see it from your point, at the same time, it comes down to legalities, and CBS couldn’t comment, likely due to Muhney’s legal deal with the soap. Same with this situation; it’s all about rights and legalities.

He admitted he was let go because of his attitude behind the scenes, and his attitude towards the daytime community, and that he saw it coming long before it happened. HAD there been sexual misconduct (etc.), they wouldn’t have allowed him to stay and complete a storyline. He would have been suspended, without pay and ultimately fired.

I would love to see a re-launching of either All My Children or One Life to Live, and don’t see why the passing of time would make a difference to long-time fans as long as everyone is ready to accept new faces intermiggled with existing characters. I actually think they should do a combination of the Two shows and call it Landview (or Pine Valley, or whatever) but I’ve been saying that since 2013 and I know I sound like a broken record.
If they could just do a half hour combination show I think that fans would be satisfied.

Really happy to hear ABC is having discussion about OLTL and AMC. As far as bringing some characters onto GH – there are already too many iconic characters that get too few lines. Mac Scorpio, Felicia had run for mayor, corruption kept her out. So now and then we see a loudmouth, corrupt mayor get some lines. The Quartermain’s haven’t been a power family for years, so PC really lacks one. Bring on Erika Slezak and some Buchanans as permanent characters on GH. Otherwise, show the actors, characters and these other soaps some dignitiy and put them back on the… Read more »

I was also devastated when OLTL and AMC went off the air. I think bringing them both back a 1/2 hr each (as a trial run) is a good idea.

The thing that made OLTL the best soap was the characters. It was kind of like being with family. I think back and in my fictional decision to choose Bo or Rex, I’m like, why choose, I can have them both!! I never quite liked the Jason and Spinelli mob show quite as much, although it has much improved. Familiar characters welcome, but bring back OLTL. PP proved it can be done on a shoe string budget. It would be fun to find out that Hope and Cole Thornheart are alive and well after all.

I don’t mind characters being integrated into GH but I’ve always believed both could have a viable return to television as each 30 min shows like they once were and see what happens from there. The Chew has proven to be a mainstay but that doesn’t mean the shows couldn’t squeeze in before GH or right after. Leave The View where it is and move The Chew in right before it. I’d really love to see ATWT and GL do the same on CBS. I work nearly 45-50 hours a week and that’s not including inside the home but, I… Read more »

The ABC Executive’s comments are not very promising. But I would cancel The View and change the name to The Political Crap and send it to CNN. Move The Chew to The View’s old spot which opens 1 hour (for a 1/2 hour AMC and a 1/2 hour OLTL). Keep GH on the canvas or it can get hot for ABC Execs. CBS should move Let’s Make A Deal before Price is Right to keep game shows together.

Congrats to ABC for getting the “character rights” back for AMC & OLTL. however it would be nice for some of the characters from the aforementioned soaps appear on GH but how about reviving one of them.

In my opinion
It’s not the same if they were on GH
They are 3 totally different soap opera and have different stories
Hence yes they did bring OLTL characters on GH but it did look or seem the same.
And when Prospect Park took over look what happened !
Bring back our love in the afternoon!
AMC at 1
OLTL at 2
And GH at 3

And get rid of the Chew! That screwed up our soaps!

Soap fans can say they knew her when, and tomorrow on the Thursday, November 5th episode of the syndicated talker Live with Kelly and Ryan, Kelly Ripa, celebrates her 30th anniversary with the Walt Disney Company and ABC.

Ripa started her journey as Hayley Vaughan on All My Children, a role she made her debut with back in 1990.

Joining Kelly for her anniversary with the company and network are former AMC castmates: Finola Hughes (ex-Alex/Anna), Eva La Rue (ex-Maria), Susan Lucci (ex-Erica), Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan), Dondré T. Whitfield (ex-Terrence) and Walt Willey (ex-Jackson).

Kelly stayed with All My Children until 2002, and along the way met her husband, Mark Consuelos who played Mateo on the show.

In 2001, Ripa replaced Kathie Lee Gifford as co-host of what then became Live with Regis and Kelly.  She also appeared on the sitcom Hope & Faith with Faith Ford from 2003-2006.  Ford will also participate in tomorrow’s special episode.
