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 is easy to use. Viewers can go to www.hulu.com on a PC and click on a video to watch right away. Videos are available for unlimited streaming, for free (users only need a Flash-enabled computer and an Internet connection to enjoy). Viewers can watch their favorite One Life to Live and All My Children episodes and clips over and over again for free. 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.

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.

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!

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

Photo: JPI

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.
