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!

I think its bull..AGAIN..they needed cash last time and couldnt get it. Where is it now? I’d LOVE to see both shows back and my heart jumpped when I saw this article. But I will not fall for it again. sadly….this makes me sad.. 🙁

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 have joked many times that they need to rename the show, “The Corinthos Family Drama.” LOL I personally, have gone on a strict “No-Watch” of GH because of the comments that so many GH fans have posted.

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.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.

AMC Alum Sarah Michelle Gellar Reflecting on Her Time on Soaps: “Anything I Can Do to Continue the Legacy I’m Very Proud Of”

Daytime fans knew of Sarah Michelle Gellar her way before her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days, when she stepped on to the small screen as Erica’s (Susan Lucci) troubled daughter Kendall Hart on ABC’s All My Children. 

Gellar played the role from 1993 to 1995, and made a brief return in 2011 as the show came to its conclusion on ABC. Additionally, Sarah won a Daytime Emmy for her performance in the Outstanding Younger Actress category in 1995.

Photo: NATAS

Sarah has partnered with Lysol for their brand’s Disinfecting Wipes “Buy One, Donate One” program. where now through September 26, whenever a pack of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes is purchased, another pack will automatically be donated to an under-resourced school through the Kids In Need Foundation.

The program is aimed to help curb the spread of illness-causing germs in schools this back-to-school season, a total of up to 16 million packs of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes will be donated to Title I schools across the country.

The program is the latest component of Lysol’s HERE for Healthy Schools initiative. Started in 2019 with the mission to help curb the spread of preventable illness and to help kids miss less school so they are able to learn, grow and thrive, HERE for Healthy Schools has provided educational materials for students and Lysol disinfecting supplies for educators and administrators to more than 49,000 schools across the country. This year, HERE for Healthy Schools is focused on helping to protect children, educators and parents as they make their big return to in-person learning in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking with TV Insider on the partnership, Gellar recalled her time on the soaps and how it changed her career and outlook, noting: “it was the training ground for the rest of my career.”

She went on to say: “I made incredible friends at that time and I learned incredible work habits, and soap operas are an intense amount of work, and I’m incredibly grateful for that time and the people that I met.  We live in a world now where my kids don’t even really know what a soap opera is, so anything I can do to continue the legacy I’m very proud of.”

So, do you remember Sarah’s time on AMC? What do you think of her thoughts on her time on the soaps? Comment below.

‘Dynasty’ and ‘All My Children’ Co-Stars React to the Death of Michael Nader

UPDATED: Yesterday, Michael Fairman TV broke the news of the passing of Michael Nader (Ex-Dex, Dynasty and Dimitri, All My Children).  As reported, Michael died on Monday morning of an untreatable form of cancer at his home in Northern California with his wife, Jodi, and his beloved dog, Storm by his side.

Since then, several of Nader’s former Dynasty and All My Children co-stars have taken to social media with their reactions and remembrances after having learned that he has no longer with us.

From his leading ladies, Joan Collins and Susan Lucci, to Emma Samms and John James, Eva LaRue, Finola Hughes, Maxwell Caufield, Vincent Irizarry and more, so many are taking a moment to share their grief and outpouring of love for Michael.

Michael Fairman TV will continue to update this post throughout the day as more remembrances are posted.

Here are what several of Nader’s former co-stars and colleagues shared below:

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children):”MICHAEL NADER—so handsome, so talented—so wonderful and beloved as All My Children’s DIMITRI MARICK—and a great love of “Erica Kane”. I am so lucky to have played opposite Michael—playing some of the most romantic scenes ever—dancing in palaces in Budapest, our gorgeous Greek Orthodox wedding, complete with crowns. Michael was a doll to work with and to know.  RIP, Michael💙💙💙🙏🙏🙏”

Joan Collins (Ex-Alexis, Dynasty): “Very sad to hear of the death of my onscreen husband and lover #michaelnader aka #dexdexter – I loved working with him and his character was a wonderful mixture of tough and tender. #alexis was crazy to keep on rejecting him! #rip #ripmichaelnader”
