BREAKING NEWS: Prospect Park Has Revived Its Plan To Bring OLTL & AMC Online!

Could this be the biggest Christmas gift from Santa for soap fans ever?  Or, could it turn out to be a lump of soapy coal?

There is huge news this afternoon out of Deadline.com who is reporting that Prospect Park, the entity that has the rights to One Life to Live and All My Children is reviving their efforts to bring the canceled soaps online in 2013! According to Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva, “I hear the company behind USA hit Royal Pains has inked deals with SAG-AFTRA and DGA for the soaps’ production, eyed to begin in the first quarter of 2013.  I hear there are preliminary discussions with actors from All My Children and One Life To Live to rejoin the revived shows. Prospect Park refused comment.”

The back-story as soapers know is: Rich Frank & Jeff Kwatinetz’s Prospect Park made a licensing deal with ABC in July 2011 to keep OLTL and AMC  alive for online distribution on their Online Network, which was slated to launch in the first quarter of 2012.  But after difficult negotiations with the guilds, the company last November pulled the plug on its plans, despite securing a slew of OLTL and AMC actors to reprise their roles.  While the online venture was formally dead, apparently Frank and Kwatinetz never lost hope, and had been quietly working since the summer on putting their plan back together and had been talking with the guilds, resulting in agreements with SAG-AFTRA and DGA. (The status of talks with WGA is unclear.)

So soapers, what do you think? Will Prospect Park finally be able to bring Llanview and Pine Valley online? Are you cautiously optimistic with this news?  Or, do you think the said Prospect Park plans will evaporate like before?  There just seems to be many hurdles still to cross here, folks.   It also seems the timing of this news is interesting, which would lead one to believe that Prospect Park is hoping to extend it’s rights for the two soaps past the end of their original reported deal which was believed to be set to expire at the end of January 2o13.   Weigh-in!

Let’s think positive and believe! Prospect Park dealt with having let many down before. I doubt they’d revive efforts without a serious plan and financial backing. We believe in AMC and OLTL, let’s be positive and show support for these efforts!

It’ll be great to have AMC, and OLTL back on the air again. Since ABC still owns the rights to these shows, and they’re always be part of the Disney family, to help promote it by celebrating the returning the shows. Here’s the best way, have all the ABC soaps stars from AMC, OLTL, and GH, along with the Disney Channel stars to do the platypus walk dance. Plus have the ABC Daytime stars appear on any of the Disney shows like Shake It Up, ANT Farm, Good Luck Charlie, Austin & Ally, Dog With A Blog, Kickin’ It, Lab… Read more »

Agreed. They waited a long time, and I just don’t see how it would work at this late date…if some of the actors have signed contracts with another show, we won’t get those characters back, and recasting is not an option (for me anyway).

Not going to happen. There is no way they can afford to do this online (where are they going to get the revenue to mount these productions?) and have the same quality soap. Not to mention that they no longer have a studio to record these shows and the sets/costumes etc were already sold off – everything would have to be purchased/build from scratch. I would have been more optimistic if they were going to cable with this and cutting it back to 2 or 3 times a week rather than every day. If they somehow are able to pull… Read more »

I don’t believe anything from Prospect Park–and they wouldn’t have the money to make them quality shows–ABC just wants the rights to the shows tied up so Agnes Nixon can’t get them and bring them back on another network

That sounds about right, MikeT. I’m not getting my hopes up, when it has anything to do with Prospect Park. They simply don’t have the money to pull this off.

It’s not IMpossible. They would need to downsize like the web series that Crystal Chappel helms. Depending on where they filmed – if it were California, I bet they could get some of the New Yorkers to fly in and out as needed (like Hilary B. Smith does for Venice: The Series) because I do not see the heavy hitters like Erica Slezak moving to Los Angeles. The question is, if the part of the funding consisted of viewers PAYING to watch, would [you]? This is the question that separates the men from the boys. I bet there are a… Read more »

I don’t understand why they don’t try to put AMC or OLTL on a cable channel….why not go for Bravo, USA, TNT, etc.? I just don’t believe that the internet would be a good idea….I mean, if it’s on Netflix or HULU it could possibly work. But like so many have said, if the majority of the cast isn’t there, it won’t be the same. So many have moved on…not to mention, what would happen to the cast members that are now currently on contract at GH? And who would write and executive produce the show, now that Ron &… Read more »

Torrey – “And to answer the post before, I would without a doubt pay to see OLTL….” That is the answer I wanted to hear. You sound like a good, understanding person and your posts are intelligent. I understand that noone should have to pay for their soaps because they were free all those years, but times have changed and IF this would be the only way to bring them back (i.e., pay-per-view), I am glad to hear some would not hesitate. I am always reminded of back when I very briefly USED to use Facebook (never again), there were… Read more »

And I for one, have been watching them on DVR. I came late to the AMC and OLTL game after my cbs soaps went off air. and I grew to LOVE THEM SO MUCH. then they were taken off. So now I watch 2008-2009s. And catching up to what I started watching in what 2010? I LOVE IT. I’ll be sad when I get caught up though, and have to stop watching again… will be like losing them all over again. OLTL one of the best soaps ever out there. And this from a Life long CBS GAL! 🙂

I didn’t know that Comcast dropped SoapNet. What a bummer! I have Verizon FIOS. Currently, they are showing 3 episodes a day and the year is 2009. Between OLTL and AMC, that’s 6 hrs. each day to watch. I do a lot of fast forwarding and sometimes skip the slow-going episodes. I will miss it once it goes off again.

Not going to get excited until something is concrete and set in stone that this WILL happen this time.

However, if they do make it work, I will be oh so happy!

not sure OLTL would be anything remotely familiar; the writers have gone to GH…the characters Star, John, Todd…the occasional visits by Blair and Tea, possibly Tomas/Alcazar…are all there too. I’m kinda liking them there! Other OLTL actors have moved to California…so don’t know if enough of the original cast would be left to hold my interest anymore….

Michael – What is your source for the rights reverting back? The only source I can find is one vague statement by Vicki Dummer. What if there is no such clause? On another note, Prospect Park has been quietly working on this for months now. Perhaps they have finally figured out the magic formula (Read: funding) to do so. Soapers can only pray for a holiday miracle which would be an official Prospect Park announcement with F-A-C-T-S! Michael thank you for spreading the word so this is out their for discussion and debate!

Very good points Flo! What a birthday present, eh?
But are we (in general – as an audience) really ever privy to this kind of information?
Doubtful – so we can speculate and we can hope! I plan on doing both!!
Oh and ditto to Michael – thanks for putting the information out there it is always nice to get a reason to hope and speculate!

I’ll be happy to see if something really develops, but after last time, I won’t even hope until we see more.
I’m doubtful, though. In a recent interview with Kassie de Pavia, she spoke as if Llanview was really gone for good, referencing the sale of the sets, etc. Would she have spoken with no hope if there was an inkling of revival – and wouldn’t she have heard through the grapevine if there was anything in the works?

We’ll see.

These online soaps seem to produce so few episodes, shorter segments, and because of budgets, do so with lower production values.

If ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE are to return, I want them as they were. I would settle for a half hour version (as they were once upon a time and a la THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL) but cheapening the properties just to have them back won;t make me entirely happy.

But then again, as I opened,… we’ll see…

I would love to see OLTL come back! I’m only 21, and I first started watching when Natalie was locked in the basement. I didn’t know anything about the story line until I just kept watching the episodes. …& the younger cast drew me to liking the show more 🙂 & I was mad when it went off the air. …There’s so many more episodes they could make.

I sure hope this is true and that it comes to fruition so we (me and the mouse in my pocket) can come to this forum and not read post after post about how OLTL characters need to be added to GH. Hopefully this means GH can be GH and the AMC and OLTL fans can get their shows back in some capacity. (I just hope that IF you get your shows back “in some capacity” that you are grateful and leave it at that.) Please don’t get me wrong, I feel for all of you who miss these shows.… Read more »

I have to agree Christine, OLTL fans have been a tad bit greedy. I lost GL/ATWT/AMC and I don’t go around demanding things from the existing soaps to bring back series and characters to invade other series that they once never had involvement with.

I’m just hoping if AMC gets the revival that Lorraine Broderick is let go from DAYS to return to AMC, or is let to do both series.

I can only say, for me, that I wouldn’t have wanted GH alumni on OLTL. It wouldn’t have made sense for me. And OLTL people still don’t make quite sense for me. McBain isn’t fitting in well anymore, and Starr is only working because of Michael. The only one who is semi-working is Todd because he’s made more connections than the other characters so he’s slowly moved onto the GH platform. And I didn’t say all fans demanded, I’m just saying a lot of fans demanded things on here. I can pin-point posts and people who made such demands, as… Read more »

I’d love to see AMC and OLTL on again, on-line if at all possible. I’m a New Yorker, so the glass is 1/2 empty for me. The glimmer of hope is that it’s associated w/”Royal Pains”, which I’ve heard about but never have seen. So who knows? But I’ll believe it when I see it. So they plan to put it online, not on USA channel like “Royal Pains”? I’ll tune in wherever.

Last week there was a report that PP wanted an extension of the rights to AMC & OLTL but ABC said no they want them back. Besides several main OLTL characters have contracts with GH. What about Frank and Ron? Do you think they would leave GH in the lurch? AMC & OLTL should be put back on ABC at 1p and 2P with GH at 3p!

Now my concern is, will we have to pay in order to see it online?

Why would the ABC Network want to buy All My Children and One Life to Live back. They have already kicked everyone in the stomach. Would ABC be willing to put the serials back on the air after saying it is too expensive.
Bold and the Beautiful has been successful in the 30 minute format. Would All My Children and One Life to Live be less expensive and easier to produce if they came back in a 30 minute format?

Well I have mixed emotions because I would LOVE to see OLTL and AMC come back but I also read that actors from OLTL like Melissa Archer who played Natalie was still under contract with PP and it was almost over and that once it was over, she would be available to go to GH as Natalie. I’d hate for them to tie her up again for another year, and then NOT do the show, but tie her and other actors up for more time preventing them from going to other shows, including GH.

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.”
