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?

Elizabeth

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.

Yes I would love to see her back on AMC. I hope that something can be worked out.

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.

I feel all will come back if asked if just to get their AMC family back together..
the cast was family! very close and I do think that will be a factor..

So great all this is coming together and I’ll see my soaps once again!! awesome!

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

Me TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OLTL !!!!!!!!!!!

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 its last few years on ABC, are there any stories really left to tell in Pine Valley? I can see OLTL, because there is some diversity and some rich casting, but who really cares about what happens to Erica Kane anymore?

To both Soaps: If you are going to go back and tell the same stale stories, don’t come back.

Torrey

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.

I hope alicia and Thorston will back together as Kendal and Zach they are fantastic together. I also hope Michael will come back too.

Lew S

Yes, she is needed and hopefully they will work around her schedule.

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 cable network and be a one-hour show again. I hate B&B’s 30-minute format…the stories move much too slowly.

(I didn’t include OLTL in my comments because I quit watching it the last year it was on.)

Again, what about OLTL ? Are the actors & actress”s being approached as well????? I want my OLTL!!!!!!!!! What’s up with this?????????? Don’t want to be dissappointed again! Any news on this yet? Hmmmmm!!!!!

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
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.

We cant expect everyone back. Although I cant imagine how busy this one is?

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 shape than when they ended on network TV. I would like to know what creative direction they are going with on both shows. I’ve moved on and will not be watching – these will not be the shows I remember.

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)

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.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
