BREAKING NEWS: ABC confirms "AMC" heads west to LA, "OLTL" stays in NYC!

amc_book.jpgAll My Children and One Life to Live are getting new homes — but you can still catch them at their old times.  This annoucement was made by reporter/writer Sheila Mariker for ABC news BUT Daytime Confidential’s Jamey Giddens scooped everyone with the news on July 27th. Here is the official news from this afternoon!

ABC Daytime announced today that it would move production of All My Children from New York to Los Angeles and that One Life to Live would move into All My Children’s former New York space, giving both shows facility upgrades and streamlined production models.

All My Children’s new facility is twice as large as its current one. It includes two stages, which will allow it to keep more standing sets. It will also allow the series to switch immediately from standard-definition to high-definition TV.

One Life to Live will enjoy similar upgrades when the show moves into All My Children’s old home, which is 30 percent larger than One Life to Live’s current space.

After the show relocates in December, All My Children will begin taping episodes in Los Angeles the week of Jan. 4, 2010, and will begin airing in HD in February. The move of One Life To Live to its new home takes place soon after All My Children relocates.

All My Children is one of the most recognizable brands in television, and we are committed to continue telling and enhancing the stories of the residents of Pine Valley,” said Brian Frons, president of the Daytime division of the Disney/ABC Television Group. “The move to Los Angeles enables both All My Children and One Life to Live to dramatically improve the series production models and achieve significant efficiencies while enhancing each show. We had to examine every option on the table to combat the current economic realities, and rising costs of production, and we are doing it in a way that makes each of our shows stronger.”

“I am so grateful for the wonderful commitment from ABC to All My Children, said Agnes Nixon, creator of both shows. “While I will miss being able to run over to the show … it feels a little like I am sending one of my children off to be married. … I am glad the network is making moves that will enable the team to continue telling stories about Pine Valley. … There are many more secrets to be revealed.”

All My Children has been on the air for 39 years, One Life to Life for 41, and both have enjoyed critical acclaim since their inception. One Life to Live was the most honored show at the 2008 Daytime Emmy Awards, with a total of 13 nominations that garnered six wins. All My Children earned 19 Daytime Emmy nominations.

Despite the changes in production location, All My Children will still air from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. ET every weekday on ABC, with One Life to Live following from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET.

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.

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…)
