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?

just to get these shows back on the air id let them work in my garage 4 a studio if i could

lol agree. We have waited way to long ! 🙂


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.

Glad to hesar evrything is coming 2gether.Now i can’t wait till April 2 start watching my soaps AGAIN…Hopefully all this crap going on with John,Starr,Todd gets resolved very soon.I do not care which soap they play on as long as they stay on.

I wonder if they have vikki’s blue sofa lol .. ((taht was sooo ugly)

I love its! It makes the fact that Fraternity Row filmed in Llanview over NY more believable!

Didnt Andrea Evans leave Tina because of the NY stalker? Well there is no stalker in CT! 🙂 Come home Tina!!!

she did leave the show originally for something like that if i recall, but she did return a few years ago, and then returned to have Tina reunite with Cord b4 the show came to an end on abc.

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.

Thanks Michael we can always count on you for updates and keep us in the loop of things. Have a great day and I’, sure they will work everything out soon. I hope everyone gets whatever makes them happy.,that’s what is most important.

Thanks for posting! You have the best info.

Micheals reporting is the best in the business

address please!! We’ve got flowers to deliver and hugs to dispense!! 🙂

It waa great having AMC in LA

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.

I can’t wait to see OLTL!! Glad it’s on the east coast, but honestly, I just want to see new episodes with the characters and actors that I love!

Very excited about all of this! Thanks for keeping us in the know!

its about time , i miss my AMC and OLTL family. cant wait!!!!

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?

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


I am ecstatic these shows will be returning and we get to spend time with our families in Llanview and Pine Valley again.

I will watch however, wherever and whenever I can!

Ditto! Can’t wait! 🙂

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.

Billy Miller Memorial Scholarship Endowment Created at His Alma Mater to Help Others ‘Realize Their Dreams’

Two months since three-time Daytime Emmy-winning actor, Billy Miller passed away, the beloved All My Children (ex-Richie), General Hospital (ex-Jason/Drew) and The Young and the Restless (ex-Billy) star, will now have a permanent scholarship endowment in his honor at the University of Texas at Austin which was Miller’s alma mater.

Through the scholarship, it will be able to help radio/television and film undergraduate students with financial need. Billy’s family and friends have established this permanent scholarship in his memory, naming it the William Jon Miller II “Billy Miller” Memorial Scholarship. They hope the endowment will be a legacy to his life and love of acting.

Before becoming soap-famous, Billy graduated from the the university’s department of Radio-Television-Film (RTF) at the Moody College of Communication. On its official website, they shared the news of this special memorial scholarship and how Miller died at the age of 43 after surrendering his life to bipolar depression, which he struggled with his whole life.

Megan Hubbell, Billy’s sister, expressed, “We want something positive to be held in his name in perpetuity through the University he loved. He would be honored to know that even in death, he can help someone else realize their dreams.”

She added how she hoped her immensely talented brother will be remembered: “I hope BJ (as Billy was known by to his friends and family) is remembered for the kind-hearted, silly, funny, goofy, generous, beautiful soul that he was His megawatt smile, deep belly laugh and gorgeous mug were gifts on screen, but his true self was a bright light that will be carried with us forever.”

According to Miller’s family, Billy had his picks of schools and UT was his first choice. When he first came to the university, Billy started in the zoology program before switching to radio-television-film, where he felt he belonged. Miller was one of just 20 students at the time accepted into the department’s prestigious production-sequence program.

“BJ was extremely proud to be a Texas Longhorn and always remembered his time there fondly,” Hubbell said. “The time he spent at UT allowed him the space to explore who he wanted to be and what he wanted to accomplish.”

In honoring her brother’s work and strength to persevere in the often heartbreaking world of entertainment, Megan related: “I always admired the guts it took to go after a dream in Hollywood that so many people tried to discourage. He heard, ‘You’ll never make it’ more times than I care to count, but he used those comments as fuel and said, ‘Watch me.’”

Miller’s roles went far beyond those on daytime soap operas, as throughout his career he played major parts in primetime’s Suits, Ray Donovan and Castle to name but a few.

In his death, Billy’s family is encouraging people to take stock of their own mental health. “BJ would want anyone struggling with intrusive thoughts to seek professional help,” Hubbell said. “Do not suffer in silence or try to muscle through on your own. Mental health is vitally important and shouldn’t be spoken about in silos behind closed doors but rather in open forums with open arms. Shame has no place in the discussion to seek help.”

As is tradition with “Live’s Halloween” episodes, they are always filled with costume and pop culture moments and special guest surprises. Ripa and Consuelos were right in step with the biggest social media love story at the moment; that of Swift and her burgeoning romance with Kansas City Chiefs Tight End, Travis Kelce.

During Halloween week which started on Monday, October 30, Live was up up 11% versus the week prior in total viewers, and averaged 2.6 million viewers throughout the week.  Year-over-year, the talk show was up that week by 15% in terms of total viewers.  It looks like the former All My Children’s alum on-screen chemistry is just as palpable as it off-screen; as the two marrieds are making quite a successful run together on morning television.
