P&G making movies for TV and declares out of soap biz!

We all knew this had already happened, and it a sad to read it in print, yet again, but Proctor & Gamble, the original soap opera giant is definatelyout of the soap business, looks like for good.  With the cancellations of Guiding Light and As the World Turns in September, Marc Pritchard, the global marketing officer for P&G tells Cincinnati.com ( the headquarters of P&G) that making Friday-Night family movie nights, and soliciting pitches for miniseries, and other tv specials is of great interest to them, but as far as soaps, Pritchard stated.”I think they’ve run their course.” 

In terms of their goals with new family programming he stated, “We went to all the networks and said we want to be in family-friendly shows. We want to see more of them.”

Why can’t ATWT be sold to someone else like King World who owns Dr. Phill and Oprah? I called the number too, told them my 76 year old mother was very devastated in cancellation news, she just gotten over the loss of GL. It’s like a death in the family loosing these two Iconic shows and no one gives a crap.
