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…

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.

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 »

Eva LaRue Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

During former All My Children, B&B and GH star, Jacob Young’s podcast, Real Conversations with Jacob Young, he welcomed his good friend and former Pine Valley cast mate, Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC, and Celeste, Y&R).

At the very top of the episode, LaRue revealed she and her daughter Kaya tested positive for Covid-19.  She shared, “We thought we had dodged a bullet, but sure enough, on New Year’s Eve, we both tested positive.”

“Oddly enough,” she goes on to say, “I really feel like we’ve been so sick of being scared to death of the invisible monster underneath the bed all last year, always looking over our shoulders.”  Eva added, “Nobody knows which one they are. Are they someone who’s going to survive it or succumb to it? Or have residual effects? All we can do is pray for the best.”

 

However, LaRue has been trying alternative methods of helping her with Covid-19 via IV treatments.  “I’ve got this amazing integrative doctor who I’ve been working with for a long time, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘No, we only do Western medicine,’ and that’s fine, I love Western medicine… but integrated medicine and Western medicine have to go hand in hand, in my opinion. Because, I just feel like, we need to open our minds to what is new and what is out there.”   So because of that, Eva has chosen to receive these treatments to hopefully starve off any long term effects of Covid.

In addition, Eva told Young she has hopes for the new primetime All My Children reboot that is in the works:  “I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be doing something with this new Pine Valley show.”   Remember, the Santos family and the Kanes are said to be the epicenter of the revival, so perhaps LaRue will be a guest-star on it, since she is also close friends with two of the EP’s, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC)!

Send your well-wishes to Eva and her daughter, Kaya and let us know would you love to see LaRue on the ‘Pine Valley’ primetime reboot?  Comment below.

All My Children Primetime Reboot “Pine Valley” in the Works at ABC from Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos and Andrew Stearn

Huge news that could bring back a new updated version of daytime’s All My Children to primetime!

ABC is eyeing a revival of Agnes Nixon’s long-running beloved series that ran for 41 years on the network and then saw an online reboot from Prospect Park that lasted only one season.

According to Deadline, former AMC stars Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) will executive produce along with Andrew Stearn and Agnes Nixon’s son, Robert Nixon.

 

The series is currently in the early stages of development, but what has been revealed is: the reboot will be written/executive produced by Leo Richardson (Katy Keene, Star), and it will center on a young journalist with a secret agenda who comes to expose the dark and murderous history of a town named Pine Valley only to become entangled in a feud between the Kane and Santos families. The series explores all the secrets that come with the Kane and Santos family names.

In the new incarnation, Pine Valley, will feature a new generation of characters and some old favorites.  As of this moment, no original cast members have deals, but the plan would be to have them make appearances, plus Ripa and Consuelos could also make a cameo.  Of course, many are already pondering if Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) might actually be a mainstay on the new primetime series; since the Kanes are one of the core families in the reboot.

Pine Valley plans to continue the original series’ tradition of tackling difficult social issues of our time and being inclusive, which the show was known for under the iconic Agnes Nixon’s storytelling.

Of note is that Stearn is also a lifelong fan of AMC and has been the driving force behind the reboot.  In fact when he was deciding between ABC Signature and one other studio for an overall deal, he chose ABC Signature because it was going to allow him to pursue his dream of rebooting All My Children.  It was then he started tracking down the rights to the soap.  As soap fans know, the rights to AMC reverted back to ABC after Prospect Park’s online version fell apart.

Later, after meeting with a number of writers to helm Pine Valley, Stearn went with Richardson, who had worked on the British soap EastEnders in his native Britain. Stearn also got on board the estate of Agnes Nixon, with son Robert Nixon joining the project as an executive producer.

So what do you think of “Pine Valley”, the All My Children primetime reboot being in development?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
