The news that soap fans have been waiting for has finally arrived and been confirmed this morning by The Online Network! Prospect Park’s reboot of the iconic All My Children and One Life to Live has an online premiere date for the first new episodes and that is … Monday, April 29th!

TOLN also revealed details how to use Hulu.com to view the new free daily episodes of your favorite soaps, and confirmed that One Life to Live begins its production next week on March 18th!

In an official press release this morning, here is what was stated:   “Prospect Park’s The Online Network (TOLN) announced today the highly-anticipated online debuts of the beloved long-running serial dramas All My Children and One Life to Live for Monday, April 29. With the date confirmed, millions of the shows’ fans and new viewers alike can plan to watch broadcast-quality versions of two of the most beloved franchises in history with easy access and for free.

“We thank the fans whose tenaciousness to see these shows return made this historical moment possible.  We are determined to repay their support by delivering new and creatively groundbreaking episodes that both the fans, as well as legions of new viewers, will love.   These viewers will absolutely embrace the flexibility HULU and iTunes provide to watch their shows anywhere, anytime,” said Jeff Kwatinetz and Rich Frank, Prospect Park’s Partners. “The response and camaraderie of our cast and crew has been inspiring as we have all banded together to succeed in our mission; unencumbered by the creative constraints of traditional broadcast television, to deliver storylines, style and characters that are stronger, with more dimension than ever.  Now with our launch date set in stone, we are ready to lead this historic return.  To the fans we proclaim, your support counts now more than ever.”

Emmy Award winner Agnes Nixon, creative consultant for both programs and a soap opera pioneer, added: “I am so pleased that our dream of bringing these two series back to life is coming to fruition. I am grateful to Prospect Park for their unwavering commitment to this project and to the amazingly talented casts of All My Children and One Life to Live – their devotion to these franchises has made this moment possible.  And to the fans – well, we wouldn’t be here without you.”

Brand new, 30-minute episodes of All My Children and One Life to Live will be available to stream online weekdays in HD (when available) via the free Hulu (www.hulu.com) service and to the millions of Hulu Plus subscribers watching on connected TVs, mobile phones, tables and PCs. In addition, the iTunes Store will offer both series via iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple TV and Mac and PC, making these venerable dramas available in a new format that suits the viewing habits of the digital generation.  Production began on All My Children February 25, and shooting will begin on One Life to Live March 18th. Both series are filmed in Stamford, Conn.

Breathing new life into the storied franchises, Prospect Park and TOLN will blend updated themes and fresh faces with the fan-favorite, Emmy-winning actors and writers who made these series must-watch viewing for legions of loyal fans.

Hulu Plus is an ad-supported subscription service that offers exclusive streaming access to full current and past seasons of shows to connected devices for $7.99 monthly.

Thanks, but unless they clear a distrubtion deal for Canada… I’m sure we will see the “not in the US border” blocks. We need a deal with a Canadian provider.

So excited to see OLTL coming back. May even tune in to see AMC as well. Still a little confused on how to watch the new episodes. I thought they were also going to be on Netflix, but maybe I dreamed that up. I am hopeful that The Online Network does a promotional push for the re-boot of these two series and has a complete website up soon, explaining in detail how and where to watch the shows. I would also love to see a new message board to coincide with the series. I thoroughly enjoyed the message board that… Read more »

That is great news for those that can watch. Since Hulu isn’t available up here in Canada, I will get a bit more excited when it’s announced how we here in Canada can watch it for free.

My question is when I click on hulu.com it goes automatically to one week free then 7.99 so y’all keep saying it’s free but I don’t see that. I don’t wont to miss when they start on April 29. So please tell us what we need to do because that’s what we are seeing when we go there. Thanks Susanna

I believe in second chances and will take a look. I just hope when the say groundbreaking they dont just mean r rated stuff like some fans feared otherwise most of them wont give it a chance. Im no prude and can pass a few things so ill wait and see b4 i get judgemental. Also i hope they mean they dont have network interference like ABC did with Ryans Hope where they ruined that show by tinkering with its format. Now these two soaps have established fan base to help get it off the ground and that should be… Read more »

I doubt itll be like this. One Naughty Life To Live. Viki is horrified to discover Clint is addicted to internet porn. Natalie, feeling lonely without John, has an affair with her own father Clint who is the only man dumb enough to have her. Viki turns into Niki Smith and gets a job at a topless bar called ‘Anything Goes’ were two of her alters hang out. Nora confesses to Bo she didnt really give birth to Rachel and Mathew because shes really a man. Bo tells Nora the only thing he ever noticed is that shes really not… Read more »

It shouldnt make a difference but after the part where i say ‘and save her from banckruptcy ‘ it shouldve included but Addie finds the jar and cooks its contents on the Kramer outdoor grill after mistaking it for Johnsville sausage. And none of this was meant to offend or be funny but i understand how some will think either way. My intentions was to get my point across.

Oh happy day, so glad everything was able to workout and am still a little shocked that we the fans were able to make our voices heard and actually have a company listen to us! All of us must turn in everyday to show ABC what a major F up they did by cancelling two proven shows by replacing them with crap that noboday watches or wanted!

The thing is, Firefox had a plugin that would mask your ip address to make it appear that you were within the US…. well, that doesn’t work anymore. I have used “proxy servers” before, and they too work for awhile, then get “found out” and are blocked….and with internet laws changing here in Canada, I for one am getting concerned about using “tricks” and “torrents” to circumvent these blocks. I hope that Prospect Park will be able to offer us Canadian a way to view, free of charge. It could become very pricey if I have to purchase the shows… Read more »

Try PP’s The Online Network I heard they are supposed to be airing the shows too…Ya know Itunes is showing them too

Wow !

I truly hope that Prospect Park can be the first online network to be able to provide world wide viewership. From the comments posted, these two shows have fans all across the world. I am sure many others are so very tired of the ‘not within the proper country‘ messages when trying to view online video content. If this could be achieved I think it could reap great rewards for the first online network that does.

‘can watch shows anytime, anywhere..’ that’s good cuz I don’t have any device to watch it on. need to find a cheap tablet for free wifi connection (any suggestions?), or pay for high speed at home…. either way it’s not going to be ‘free’ for me.

not the kind you need to watch Hulu! according to their site, for free Hulu you need: “broadband internet connection. We recommend a downstream bandwidth of at least 1.5 Mbps for a smooth playback experience.” I’m still on dialup at $9.95. We’ve got faster internet at work, but we haven’t got the newest software/browser/flash versions because our main systems don’t work with anything but older stuff… but we have free wi-fi if you have a device you want to connect, so I’d have to buy something to watch on my lunch hour…. or spend a lot more than that to… Read more »

I love the big Ol Middle Finger we as fans are able to give ABC. They thought that we are just stupid housewives that could do nothing against the Mighty ABC! Well ABC Here is a big Ol F.U. To you and your stupidity for cancelling these 2 iconic shows and for underestimating the power of a bunch of “Housewives” and PP!!!

I can not watch them for free as hulu is only available in the States. I live in Scotland so it looks like I will have to pay for this through iTunes. I would prefer to watch for free!

The soaps were never available to watch over here in the UK. I grew up on these soaps and I watched them every day till I moved in 2001. I sure do miss them!! It would be great if they became available on youtube. I just hope they won’t be expensive on iTunes!

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

Will you be watching Kim in her starring role in The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice? Let us know in the comment section.

‘ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway’ Raises $130,565 For Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS In Four Day Streaming Event

Last week, ABC Daytime fans were thrilled to see some of the archival footage and performances from the ABC Daytime: Salutes Broadway Cares benefit concerts by those who were once in the mighty soap programming block that included: All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. 

While only GH remains, viewers still loved seeing many of their favorites perform in the streaming event, ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway, from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, which featured footage from those events that ran from 2005-2011 in front of a live audience in New York City.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.

As part of the event week, Michael Fairman chatted with former One Life to Live star, Catherine Hickland (Ex-Lindsay Rappaport) about her performances over the years at the event, her role of Lindsay and her on-screen feud with Nora (Hillary B. Smith), and more.  You can watch it below.

What did you think of the ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway streaming event? Did you enjoy seeing the performances? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Kelly Ripa on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “It’s a Darker Look at things, and I’m Very Excited About It.”

According to talk-show host, executive producer, and former All My Children star, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley), the highly-anticipated reboot in the works of the beloved soap, will be focused on the children of familiar characters from the town of Pine Valley and have a much darker feel than its original daytime counterpart.

The series that everyone has been talking about is, of course, Pine Valley, which is being executive produced by Ripa, along with her husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo), and Andrew Stearn.

Photo:ABC

Kelly, who is celebrating her 20th year on ‘Live’, spoke with Entertainment Weekly where part of the conversation turned to what she could share on the AMC reboot.

Ripa expressed how the original cast would fit into the new updated version of the soap: “We would be the parents, and this show is really more about the children of Pine Valley.”

She went on to say, “It’s a darker look at things, and I’m very excited about it. It was pitched to us and we were like, ‘We will absolutely produce this. And we want to be a part of it.’ Immediately we called Eva LaRue (Ex-Mara), all of our friends, and we started saying, ‘Just be at the ready. Get ready.’ ”

Just as fans are excited about the return to Pine Valley, so is Ripa: “All My Children is responsible for every singular good thing that has happened in my life. I met my husband there, I had my children there – not in the studio but pretty close; they kept you there until your contractions were five minutes apart, as we like to say.  It’s from there that I got the talk show. It’s from there that I got Hope & Faith…. and our first production deal. So it’s truly responsible for every good thing in my life that’s happened to me.”

So what do you think about the edgier All My Children on the way? Who would you like to see cast in the younger set to play some of the kids, and their love interests, of the Santos and Kane families, etc? Comment below.
