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, here’s a product that MILLIONS want, and it can’t be sold? No, I have no doubt. Sure we might lose some older generation who don’t have granddaughters to set up their hulu, but the technology is childs play. Sorry yours didn’t work. I had to wait for it a bit. Loading time maybe. Also, I think the shows will do better on an online platform. So many viewers don’t have time to mess with dvring when you can just hit play on Hulu. No, the fate is sealed. Going all the way, and AMC too,

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.

This is so exciting!!!

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

susan M.
susan M.

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 have spent the same money but gotten better production values (location shoots) and more time to rehearse, something I think soaps don’t have enough of. How is it that telenovelas can film so much outdoors and on location but the US soaps are locked inside studios? And the ones that shoot in LA have NO EXCUSES for not having outdoor sets.

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 seem to be much more real and likeable than Hollywood actors.

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.

Y&R, AMC and GL Alum, Jeff Branson Featured In New AppleTV+ Drama, ‘For All Mankind’

Daytime Emmy winner, Jeff Branson is featured in a new drama coming your way on the new AppleTV+ platform.  Branson takes on the role of famous astronaut Neil Armstrong in For All Mankind.

At the epicenter of the story is NASA and the Soviet space program as they square off in the space race of the 1970s.  But this has a twist, America has lost the race and tensions boil over between the two nations.

The main focus in the series is the lives of the astronauts and the personal and professional relationships they encounter. For All Mankind presents an aspirational world where NASA and the space program remained a priority and a focal point of our hopes and dreams.

Branson is fondly remembered in soapland for his performances as Ronan Malloy on The Young and the Restless, Jonathan Randall on All My Children, and Shayne Lewis on Guiding Light.

For All Mankind is created by Emmy Award winner Ronald D. Moore (Outlander, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica), Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi.

In addition to Branson the cast includes: Joel Kinnaman, Michael Dorman, Wrenn Schmidt, Shantel VanSanten, Sarah Jones and Jodi Balfour. General Hospital’s Jason David (Aiden Spencer) also appears in the series.
