NEP Broadcasting Converting Old Warehouse in Connecticut Into New Studio Home of AMC & OLTL!

NEP Broadcasting the country’s largest mobile production services company, is growing rapidly—expanding both internationally and on the web with new clients and forms of programming, and one of those happens to be Prospect Park and their new studio homes for the web versions of One Life to Live and All My Children!

According to a piece in Broadcasting Engineering, Barry Katz, senior vice president and general manager at NEP, related: “At the same time, what’s old is new.”  That was in reference to the fact that, “NEP is building studios in an old factory in Connecticut for the webcast versions of the soap operas All My Children and  One Life to Live. They start production on Feb. 25.”

“We became a Connecticut entity because of the tax credit there,” Katz said. “We can build a studio anywhere.” Currently, NEP has nine permanent studios in New York, two in the UK and 13 semi-permanent, custom control rooms in Connecticut, Los Angeles and the UK.

So soapers excited to here the new of the new studio homes to the town of Llanview and Pine Valley?  Let us know what you think about the shows being produced in Stamford, Connecticut, which is clearly closer to a lot of the original cast of One Life to Live and some of the original cast of All My Children, who did not relocate to L.A.   It is important to note: wasn’t it ABC who made AMC leave its digs in NYC to come to LA thus relocating many beloved performers?

Michael, thanks for posting this article. I enjoy reading about the business side of the new versions of OLTL & AMC. Can’t wait to see the set designs, I wonder if PP is going with any of the designs we saw from the ABC studios. Do you think PP will be doing location shooting also?
Thanks again for the updates and taking time during the weekend for the posts.

True, but this is still better! If she can be on B&B all the time she can do OLTL! lol

We have to support any decisions that are had with the Todd/Starr/John characters even though we may not agree because it will bring back our beloved soaps.

I’m glad it’s closer for many of the OLTL actors, but I am concerned about the lack of core family characters/actors signing on for AMC. There was no mention of any of the Martins or Chandlers, just the Hubbards and Opal and Zack. The rest were fairly new to the show before it ended its broadcast run. OLTL was much more successful in getting the core back. That should help OLTL immensely.

Yes Michael, I will ALWAYS remember that it was ABC/D that created this debacle in the first place.

Viewers may not know that hit shows, such as Supernatural and The Walking Dead aren’t filmed in L.A. or NYC. Why? Because they have lower production costs and/or get tax credits elsewhere. Most soaps fans will remember that One Tree Hill was filmed in Wilmington, N.C. and I believe Dallas is filmed in and around Dallas, TX. Also, many actors travel to location shoots. I’m just glad these gems are back in production. Woo Hoo!

My only modest concern is the fact that ALL MY CHILDREN will really have to “write around” some major characters, at least for a while.

I hope that GH will keep up the the fantastic story lines, the crossover is so well done; has opened so many options and interesting possibilities for the plot lines. I love twists and turns and surprises , plus bringing back so many past characters has been great. I think that the ties between GH people and OLTL should continue, having them be involved at both shows in someway.

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.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

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…)
