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.

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.

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

‘ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway’ Raises $130,565 For Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS In Four Day Streaming Event

Last week, ABC Daytime fans were thrilled to see some of the archival footage and performances from the ABC Daytime: Salutes Broadway Cares benefit concerts by those who were once in the mighty soap programming block that included: All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. 

While only GH remains, viewers still loved seeing many of their favorites perform in the streaming event, ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway, from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, which featured footage from those events that ran from 2005-2011 in front of a live audience in New York City.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.

As part of the event week, Michael Fairman chatted with former One Life to Live star, Catherine Hickland (Ex-Lindsay Rappaport) about her performances over the years at the event, her role of Lindsay and her on-screen feud with Nora (Hillary B. Smith), and more.  You can watch it below.
