Couldnt get video to work! This all seems too good to be true! Im very happy these shows are given second chances but i still wonder how many will like or dislike the reboots…just because its online will the shows and pp succeed or fail? I do want it to all work out and will give both shows a month long chance b4 judging the whole thing. Hopefully itll succeed and PP will bring back new versions of old soap favorites or create complete new serials of their own. But ill also continue to support the network serials as well!

Though unsure of AMC, I know that OLTL could brag about cutting costs and staying on budget to make a profit. It was still making a profit on network tv even in the face of cheap reallity shows, but the networks or the owners of the networks either didn’t want to deal with the unions, so many actors, less profits than reality tv. The fact that it made a profit made fans outraged at the idea that a soap could not be sold, so it was a matter of time that a new business model would be created. I mean,… Read more »

So happy One Life to Live is coming back can’t wait to see it! Love Todd on General Hospital. I think he’s great on both GH and OLTL. John McBain is great on both too! Can’t wait to see them back on GH.

Awesome!!!!
I am so excited and really have to give them credit for coming together and reuniting our OLTL and AMC family.
My only advice is to PP is please, please, please take out ads in Women’s magazines and show the older folks (NOT me 🙂 how they can get online and how easy it will be and again, that it is free. Please continue to promote, promote and promote…

Erika Slezak has zero idea how much she is beloved in the world. It’s good to see her back where she belongs.

Just so wonderful, brought a smile to my face and a tear to my eye.

Speaking of James Mitchell, I was watching Micheal Feistein’s American Songbook series on PBS tonight and there was a clip of James Mitchell dancing on a TV show with Cyd Charise from 1959! What a sauve and elegant dancer he was. Lovely the way Ms Larson paid homage to him in this preview video.

I couldn’t agree more about the shout out Jill Larson gave James Mitchell. I worked with James’ husband Albert Wolsky on a film years ago (he’s a costumer) but I had no idea they were in a relationship because it was the early ’90s and people were a lot less open then.

This is so exciting!!!

Question. Will OLTL and AMC be on the free version of Hulu or will I have to pay?

Here is an answer to your question . I e-mailed Hulu on 3/21 about free viewing of
OLTL & AMC and this is the response I received: Good news is that OLTL and AMC will be avialiable for both Hulu and Hulu plus. This means you’ll be able to
view the shows on your computer WITHOUT a subscription to hulu plus. From Dom T.(Hulu Support)..The regular hulu is FREE! I hope this helped you!
Happy viewing of OLTL & AMC!

OMG! Why am I tearing so much over this? Is it because I have missed m AMC & OLTL families? God bless Prospect Park, TOLN and all the actors/set staff/writers/directors/producers et.al who are making this possible. I love them all as if they were my own family!

And thanks so much to you Michael Fairman for covering all these events/stories/interviews so beautifully! You do it like no one else.

I loved “OLTL” in the ’80s (ETERNA!) then started watching again a few years ago when Tina came back. I was sad when it went away (BUT I’m thrilled that “Carlatini” have revitalized “GH”) so I’ll def. be watching to see how “OLTL 2.0” looks. I MAY watch “AMC 2.0” just to help support it because I appreciate what Prospect Park is doing. I was never much of a fan of that show, mostly because Susan Lucci’s character wasn’t for me. In my opinion, they should have just turned the two shows into one hour weekly soaps. Then they could… Read more »

Some of your points are legitimate-but how can you tell what they’ve shot by a promo video? I just wish that people would stop looking for things to complain about before the shows even air…

I’m NOT judging ANYTHING I haven’t seen yet. I’m judging “GH” and “DOOL” which seem to be locked inside of studios despite being filmed in LA.

I loved this video! It seems like this new production company really cares about marketing and giving the fans the characters that they love. ABC was always bringing on new characters (Ford Brothers and their mother, for example) who were awful. Soap fans want to see the same characters that we have come to love. We do not care if they have gotten older. I cannot wait to see Viki, Clint, and all of the others in action. I am an OLTL fan, but I plan on watching AMC also as it looks good and to support it. These actors… Read more »

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

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.
