Fantastic news for fans of the online revivals of All My Children and One Life to Live this afternoon! In an official statement just released, the labor dispute between Prospect Park and the Union has been resolved meaning new episodes will begin shooting after the current hiatus!

The official statement reads: “Today Prospect Park and the I.A.T.S.E. New York Production Locals 52, 161, 600, 700, 764, 798 and USA829 are pleased to announce that the two parties have resolved issues related to the production of  All My Children and One Life To Live to their mutual satisfaction. As a result production of both series will resume, as planned following the shows’ hiatus, on August 12, 2013.

Speaking on behalf of the New York Production Locals, Local 600 Representative David Blake stated, “We are pleased that that the parties were able to successfully address their concerns in a mutually beneficial way, which will enable these innovative shows to continue to be produced with our talented crews.”

“We thank the entire I.A.T.S.E. organization for their continued support in bringing these shows to fans, and we especially appreciate the efforts of Chaim Kantor and John Ford and our entire crew for helping us to move forward as a unified team,” said Jeff Kwatinetz.”

New episodes of both series are being produced by Prospect Park and The OnLine Network. One Life to Live debuted on ABC in 1968, and All My Children debuted on ABC in 1970. The shows were created by Agnes Nixon, and each ran for more than 40 years, until 2011. Both series have won numerous Daytime Emmys, and have earned hundreds of nominations in various categories. TOLN brought the shows back on April 29, 2013 and audiences can still log into HULU and iTunes to catch brand new episodes Mondays through Thursdays on HULU and iTunes.

So soap fans, and AMC and OLTL fans, happy to hear the news of the resolution between the Union and Prospect Park?  Are you excited to know new episodes will begin shooting in August? Share your thoughts on this breaking news!

Isn’t that the truth, there are ppl out there that want it to fail. Sucks. And what is this crap Nancy that AMC sucks, what stories are you watching? I love it! It will not be cancelled again. Storylines are awesome. How can you say AN is a bitch? Senile? Where is this coming from? Cancel OLTL, you must work for ABC/Disney then. A troll who wants the shows to fail. If it is way too painful to watch darling, perhaps you need to stop watching then, perfect solution for you. As for the rest of us, we will continue… Read more »

Feel sorry for poor Nancy. She’s been locked in her basement now for way too long. Surviving on cheetos and bitterness can do that to a person.

BTW, Nancy, I hear Agnes Nixon hates you more. Who can argue with her?

Really, though, just another non-watcher who likes to stir it up. Now I have to wonder how she got access to the internet at the asylum…..

Nancy made a comment that she works for ABC! And wants more talk & reality
shows on abc. And sad Agnes is an old bat & should retire. And still saying both soaps stink and should be cancelled again. See her comments on 6/20 at

I am very excited to hear that production will be restarting up in August. Now PP, lets take the web series global and make a big splash. Show all the doubters that this is the wave of the future. Bring back the veterans that put the soaps on the air and made us fall in love with AMC and OLTL. The younger actors rightfully don’t have the “grit” of experience yet to make us love them like we do the veterans; Yes, we do need the young actors to attract new viewers but they alone won’t keep the show online.… Read more »

I actually like having less episodes. I work full time and I don’t feel under pressure to stay on top of them. I enjoy them enough to want more more more, but at the end of the day, I get to digest them long enough to anticipate the next one. I’m liking the new 2x a week per show.

We need more episodes char. all of us are losing intrest in both soaps. 4 episodes a week would be a better fit. or they will be cancelled yet again.

Then you have the option to watch during your lunch hour or breaks, or evenings, or weekends… the rest of us would love to have 4 days back and hope one day it could be 5 days per week of episode’s only…. Sorry you feel this way but why should we suffer with less for you… meant in a nice way 🙂

I and many others new it was nothing to worry over, just union stuff, it would be settled soon, and it was .. that is good news for the very many who said; PP would go bankrupt , PP would cancel the soaps, PP doesn’t know how to do this and that, this is the end of the soaps, it was all doom and gloom from many LOL I am happy all is settled and PP will continue on with our soaps!!

Now the only thing they need are some stronger scripts and some familiar faces
and they will be all set!
Doesn’t it just seem like without Tad Martin there as played by Michael E. Knight
and without Susan Lucci as Erica Kane that PINE VALLEY just isn’t the same?
Also, whatever happened to Dr. Castillo who is a doctor at Pine Valley Hospital?
Isn’t he Cara’s brother? What happened?

Dr. Castillo I’ve wondered about, though I can’t say I ever cared about his presence even on the best day. Personally, I’ve been waiting on more Adam for WEEKS and WEEKS now! We haven’t seen him since what? Week 3?

Well Ms. Lucci is busy doing others things and she might make an appearence on AMC if her schedule permits . That’s what she said a while ago.

Susan Lucci is in lots of other show’s but we can pray success there and that she will at least be a guest star occasionally on AMC … never know what can happen in the future… maybe yes and maybe no… she is in the new Devious Maids right now… great show too… love being retired and watching TV & On-Line all day hehehehehe

Why do YOU have to PAY for your soap?????

boes
Guest

Someone’s taking you to the cleaners if you’re paying. Unless, that is, you chose to. It’s free through HULU – something that has been said, typed, and shouted from the rooftops for months on end.

Unless you’re one of the non-watchers who just come onto these sites to complain about shows you don’t watch.

Jules
Guest
Jules

I’m Canadian and I have no other option but to pay via ITunes. But I do so with a smile in my heart. I told myself back in November/December 2011 when the first words of PP picking up OLTL/AMC were announced that I would pay if necessary as a way of showing my support. Now that I have to, I have no complaints.

Denise
Guest
Denise

I’m getting really tired of the hater’s too… why do they even waste their time complaining and calling foul names at this hard working team to bring the shows for us that do appreciate them… I think when they are calling people foul names Hulu and ITunes should block them from their sites including the comment site’s… Hater’s are a waste of time to society… they must be very unhappy folks in a miserable life to act this way 🙂

Denise
Guest
Denise

Maybe in the future things will change for you guys in Canada…sure hope so… It’s your own networks there that caused this for you not PP or TOLN … I don’t understand what prevents Hulu and ITunes from providing free to you like the U.S.??

This is great news. Today’s (6/20) OLTL was the best yet, didn’t want the episode to end. Luv that Shaun is back, can’t wait to see him in scenes with Destiny.
Looking forward to seeing the new One Life To Live become stronger, with the new writers, after the hiatus. Thanks Prospect Park and the unions for resolving.

I agree with you Mark ! I am happy the dispute was resolved! OLTL has alway’s been my #1 favorite soap.. I hope more of the cast returns in Aug. OLTL was the best on 6/20 and threre was no cursing which they don’t need in the storyline. Never needed it before and it wasn’t necessary . Happy the unions resolved everything! Need more episodes like on 6/20! Viki really gave it to Clint ! And so did Natalie….This episode of OLTL ROCKS and I hope there are more to come like this episode! These are the kind of stories… Read more »

What a relief that the problems have been solved and the shows resume production. Love them both and am still thrilled that PP brought them back. JMHO but ABC should never have cancelled them. Susan Lucci fans can get a weekly dose of LaLucci on the Lifetime presentation of “Deceptive Maids”. Someone suggested this Michelle stalker could turn out to be Hannah, who tried to kill Starr and James so she could live happily ever after with Cole. Well, Cole is dead and gone, so wouldn’t it be cool if Michelle turns out to be Hannah? LOL

If these comments “await moderation” why on earth would Michael allow “Nancy” to post this?? This is a great and fun website where we can all bond with each other as soap fans, not be verbally abused by some troll. It’s one thing to disagree with another viewer over an actor or storyline or which soap is best but this is just nonsense. This is clearly just some dumb kid who’s bored at home getting his (or her) rocks off.

Michael let the person speak and had faith in us, our intelligence, to not respond to the troll.. Pass over/ignore the comment ..
Trolls needed to be feed, and h/she was given a good lunch..

I’m sure as all that Michael has a limit, but he does not censor peoples right of expression, I admire Michael for that, very much ..

I don’t watch either, but keep up for my mother who started watching AMC when she was pregnant with me in 1973. Not quite sure why people EVER want to see a show canceled. And I’m saying from both sides – I want AMC & OLTL to thrive online. And I don’t want to see The Chew canceled. We have so many options on TV. If you don’t like something, watch something else. I didn’t boycott NBC when they canceled Santa Barbara – a superior soap to ANY other 🙂

I had no doubt they wouldn’t resolve their issues. It is in both parties interest to work it out and they did. To all the Negative Nelly’s out there. Stop watching the shows! You are a very SMALL portion of the viewing audience and while you are entitled to your opinions, you are also entitled to the wrath of those who disagree with you. AMC and OLTL will be on the air for a LONG TIME, if you (haters) feel they suck, watch something else because the more you complain, it just shows you are watching two beloved shows enjoy… Read more »

This is wonderful news. I am not surprised that the situation was resolved quickly. Had they not be able to resolve this with the union and had taken the productions to another state, all of those union employees in Connecticut would be out of work. Am proying that the new writing team on OLTL will answer a burning question.

Thanks jimh…hopefully the new writers will write some of our favorites back into the show. (Barbara Garrick, Ilene Kristen please come back) After seeing Tuesday’s episode I can see why changes in the writing staff need to be made. Very uneven. Parts of it were fantastic (the scenes with Tea and Dani were deeply moving). On the opposite end of the spectrum was the Jack Manning storyline. Given that Jack has never ever expressed an interest in girls his out of nowhere love tryst with a total stranger was completely out of character. The scene came out of nowhere and… Read more »

I think Jack already knew her…i believe she’s his summer school teacher…the writers arent revealing her identity in that episode but will soon, i believe. The only girl he did seem interested in was Vimals sister Neela during the shows network run but they apparently forgotten her and she’s not even mention. i also think they shouldve had Shaun work as a bouncer at Shelter…i liked Shauns scenes with Destiny….your right about Tea and Dani…their scenes were very moving…need more of them…and Roxy too…wouldve been great fun seeing Roxi do Todds nails in that one episode. thanks 4 reply.

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.

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.

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.”
