Alicia Minshew Reveals She Has Been Approached For AMC Reboot!

Courtesy/ABC

Soap fans are of course hoping that Alicia Minshew (Kendall) will be able to participate and come to terms with Prospect Park for the upcoming All My Children online reboot!

The beautiful and talented fan favorite took to Twitter this afternoon to let her fans and followers know just where things are at this point, tweeting,  “I’m so happy for all of you getting your AMC and OLTL shows back! Many of you have asked me-Yes I have been approached. No news yet! We will see. I am shooting 2 other projects that may interfere with the timing. Again we will see. ”

As some have been concerned, many of the original actors of both All My Children and One Life to Live are currently busy and confirmed for other projects, so scheduling could be a key factor in getting some back in time for the reboot.  Can Prospect Park woo Lish?

So would you love to see Alicia back in Pine Valley as Kendall?  Let us know!

Hasn’t anyone from OLTL been contacted? All the news seems to center on AMC.

Since they’re doing alternating story arcs, and it appears that AMC gets the first arc, it would make sense that they have to get that show up and running first. Once they’ve made progress on that, I’m sure they’ll start working on OLTL.

That is what I was thinking. Must be focusing on AMC right now and then they will go full force with OLTL. This may give GH some more time to use Todd, Starr, and John which will be nice. I enjoy them on GH. I think John should go back to OLTL but I like Todd better on GH. He has more characters to play off of there.

Yeh! What about OLTL ? Have the been aproached yet? We need to hear from
Erika Slezak !

Thank you, Susan! Yes, I, too, keep wondering about Erika, the backbone of OLTL. I would speculate that Prospect Park’s been wise enough to approach her and that things are quiet until something’s been worked out?

Absolutely! And if she’s not available to shoot right away, I hope they work with her and allow her to come back when her projects are done.

isn’t she stunning? i grew to love her and Mother Erica’s relationship… considering how Kendall came about… the rape… not living with her mom… and adding to that… Bianca… like she was the favorite…. Geez her and Zach were fantastic… and watching how Erica and Kendall evolved.. was beautiful.

the Kane women.

Tops is Mona.

Little worried that we have not heard one OLTL actor confirmed yet, I’ve been worried about it since they were all burned last time….lets hope its just being kept hush hush right now…sounds like they will tape AMC first then OLTL? They have the GH mess to deal with too

She was a fan fave and important character, so I hope they can come to an agreement. I really want PP to make this work.

She is my favorite and they really need her and Eden (first Binx) back also. They can work around their schedules just like to do all the time for other daytime actors who have other projects and medical issues. We also need Thorston back as Zach and Susan Lucci back even if she is only on 1 or 2 times a week at first if she is still filming Devious Maids.

It is a reality that these reboots are NOT going to get back all the players but that is exciting!! As long as they have a few familiar faces, some recasts, and fresh new faceds, it is a chance to reenergize the shows! Toss me a couple Martins and Chandlers and a slew of newbies, im on board. Give me some Buchanan action and new families, im there.

If I were an actor, after I’ve played the same part for over ten years, I’d really look at moving on, because while it’s nice to have that steady paycheck, I’d grow stale as a performer. Unfortunately there is a stigma in the business of actors being in a soap, and yes, you can point all you want to those who have found success on the big screen (Susan Sarrandon, Christopher Reeve, Tommy Lee Jones, Demi Moore) for the most part, that time has come and gone. I guess my biggest question is after the truly horrific writing on AMC… Read more »

That’s why I think they should focus on OLTL before AMC….OLTL was at the top of it’s game, when it went off the air….there was really nothing to fix. AMC on the other hand, had so many problems from the horrific storytelling, that it’s going to take pulling several rabbits out of the hat to bring it back to the gold standard that we all once loved.

This is great, I hope they get her also. They also need Bianca played by Eden Reigel. Zach for Kendall would be great also.

Alicia is an integral part of AMC, so I think it’s important that she be included in any re-boot of the show. I’m still not holding my breath for any of this to happen though. Look what happened last time…what’s different now? Prospect Park had all kinds of actors, writers etc. lined up and it never went anywhere. They just tied up some actors so they couldn’t work on any other soap. As much as I’d like to see AMC back, I don’t know if I would actually watch it on-line. I would love to see the show on a… Read more »

I would hope that Sarah Michelle Gellar could come back as Kendall, or that there could be a recast. I was never that much of an Alicia Minshew fan at all. The character of Kendall became increasingly annoying, too.

I’m just happy AMC alumni are being contacted unlike last night.

Torrey

Glad to see I’m not the only one who feels this way. Although Alicia has a huge fan following…..I was never a big fan of hers. I have always felt that Sarah Michelle Gellar was a much better Kendall. Besides, it doesn’t seem like Alicia is that interested in joining back anyway…..just the tone of that tweet didn’t feel right to me.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Alicia does have a huge fan following. But her acting is not on the standard that SMG’s is! And I think Alicia lost interest in the series after she had her daughter and after she had to relocate to LA.

This all smells extremely fishy. When all is said and done, I don’t think these soaps will ever see the light of day on the internet and even if they make it on, it will be very short-lived. I just don’t see any way that these shows can survive on online advertising alone to offset the costs involved and the almost certain steep decrease in viewers. IMO, Prospect Park is risking major embarrassment again to their reputation. Are we ever going to actually hear direct quotes from a Prospect Park executive about any of this?

Kelly

I agree – I don’t see how these shows are going to survive without any revenue stream coming in because ultimately, they were too expensive to produce on ABC. I think they have probably received financing for a about 6 months to a year and they have to show that they can make money during that time – remember it not just to cover the cost of production, they have to show a profit or the potential for return on investment. It’s a huge gamble. If it doesn’t work the shows will be canceled and we will be in worst… Read more »

I’m starting to think AMC will launch first and both soaps won’t launch together. OLTL might launch later maybe part of the problem is the GH factor with that show. I think its better for them to concentrate on launching one soap at a time anyways.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest

According to rumours, each series will run 5-6 weeks, alternating and sharing sets. And it seems like AMC is more likely to launch into those 5-6 runs.

Eva LaRue Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

During former All My Children, B&B and GH star, Jacob Young’s podcast, Real Conversations with Jacob Young, he welcomed his good friend and former Pine Valley cast mate, Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC, and Celeste, Y&R).

At the very top of the episode, LaRue revealed she and her daughter Kaya tested positive for Covid-19.  She shared, “We thought we had dodged a bullet, but sure enough, on New Year’s Eve, we both tested positive.”

“Oddly enough,” she goes on to say, “I really feel like we’ve been so sick of being scared to death of the invisible monster underneath the bed all last year, always looking over our shoulders.”  Eva added, “Nobody knows which one they are. Are they someone who’s going to survive it or succumb to it? Or have residual effects? All we can do is pray for the best.”

 

However, LaRue has been trying alternative methods of helping her with Covid-19 via IV treatments.  “I’ve got this amazing integrative doctor who I’ve been working with for a long time, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘No, we only do Western medicine,’ and that’s fine, I love Western medicine… but integrated medicine and Western medicine have to go hand in hand, in my opinion. Because, I just feel like, we need to open our minds to what is new and what is out there.”   So because of that, Eva has chosen to receive these treatments to hopefully starve off any long term effects of Covid.

In addition, Eva told Young she has hopes for the new primetime All My Children reboot that is in the works:  “I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be doing something with this new Pine Valley show.”   Remember, the Santos family and the Kanes are said to be the epicenter of the revival, so perhaps LaRue will be a guest-star on it, since she is also close friends with two of the EP’s, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC)!

Send your well-wishes to Eva and her daughter, Kaya and let us know would you love to see LaRue on the ‘Pine Valley’ primetime reboot?  Comment below.

All My Children Primetime Reboot “Pine Valley” in the Works at ABC from Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos and Andrew Stearn

Huge news that could bring back a new updated version of daytime’s All My Children to primetime!

ABC is eyeing a revival of Agnes Nixon’s long-running beloved series that ran for 41 years on the network and then saw an online reboot from Prospect Park that lasted only one season.

According to Deadline, former AMC stars Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) will executive produce along with Andrew Stearn and Agnes Nixon’s son, Robert Nixon.

 

The series is currently in the early stages of development, but what has been revealed is: the reboot will be written/executive produced by Leo Richardson (Katy Keene, Star), and it will center on a young journalist with a secret agenda who comes to expose the dark and murderous history of a town named Pine Valley only to become entangled in a feud between the Kane and Santos families. The series explores all the secrets that come with the Kane and Santos family names.

In the new incarnation, Pine Valley, will feature a new generation of characters and some old favorites.  As of this moment, no original cast members have deals, but the plan would be to have them make appearances, plus Ripa and Consuelos could also make a cameo.  Of course, many are already pondering if Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) might actually be a mainstay on the new primetime series; since the Kanes are one of the core families in the reboot.

Pine Valley plans to continue the original series’ tradition of tackling difficult social issues of our time and being inclusive, which the show was known for under the iconic Agnes Nixon’s storytelling.

Of note is that Stearn is also a lifelong fan of AMC and has been the driving force behind the reboot.  In fact when he was deciding between ABC Signature and one other studio for an overall deal, he chose ABC Signature because it was going to allow him to pursue his dream of rebooting All My Children.  It was then he started tracking down the rights to the soap.  As soap fans know, the rights to AMC reverted back to ABC after Prospect Park’s online version fell apart.

Later, after meeting with a number of writers to helm Pine Valley, Stearn went with Richardson, who had worked on the British soap EastEnders in his native Britain. Stearn also got on board the estate of Agnes Nixon, with son Robert Nixon joining the project as an executive producer.

So what do you think of “Pine Valley”, the All My Children primetime reboot being in development?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
