Prospect Park Closes Deal With WGA & Clears Biggest Hurdle For OLTL & AMC Reboot!

Fantastic news soapers!  After all the questions, comments, and rightful concerns about how Prospect Park was going to be able to deliver One Life to Live and All My Children online without the most important entity of all for soaps … the writers  … that has been rectified and solved!

According to Deadline.com, yesterday, Prospect Park closed a deal with the WGA (Writers Guild of America) reaching an agreement to be able to bring qualified soap writers and talent to the online reboot for the stories of One Life to Live and All My Children!  As fans know, Prospect Park was looking into using fi-core writers because they were having difficulties coming up with an acceptable deal with the Writer’s union.   As well, Daytime Confidential reported that an insider revealed that residuals were the sticking point to the deal:  “Prospect Park hopes to air the episodes of All My Children and One Life to Live on cable and in other countries, after their initial online airings. The WGA couldn’t afford to make a deal that didn’t include residuals for the writers.”

So soapers, all systems now are go, and we are on and greenlighted to see One Life to Live and All My Children hopefully begin to tape in February as Prospect Park has announced in their studios in Stamford, Connecticut.  Looks like one last and key part of this remains:  finalizing the casts from One Life to Live and All My Children and just who is going to be part of the beginning of the reboot.   

Let us know, who would you like to see being on the writing teams of One Life and AMC?  Are you now of the belief that One Life to Live and All My Children have crossed the biggest hurdle and will be ready to go?  Weigh-in!

I am so excited! I did read that Jordi Vilasuso (Griffin) is coming back to AMC also. Do we know anyone else that is for sure coming back? Are they going to recast JR? Will David Canary come back? I am sure they can’t have the entire cast back anyway because it will be not as much airtime since going to 30 mins instead of an hr. I can’t wait to see more casting news in the weeks ahead! Also who will the show writers be?

Brian, I believe it was only 37 minutes long on abc. Commercials commercials….. So, not too much less than tv version.

That makes sense. So maybe they can keep a decent cast still. I just know on B&B they have way too many cast members who never get airtime.

Can’t believe it!!!! Why can’t they go to a full hour online? Also, can’t believe that their going to be taping in Stamford CT – Now I’ll be able to go there & maybe see some of the actors/actresses as Stamford CT is only about driving distance 7 minutes away from me… YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!

They probably cannot afford to be taping full-hour episodes. Soaps are never full-hours anyway. They’re between 35-40 minutes with commercials. So in reality, they’re filming a real soap time without commercials.

Many people were angry at PP over things they had no control over, as the unions and sponsors..
And yet, PP has kept on to make it work and bring back our soaps..
they are indeed Heroes !! ..

((shame on some who blamed them for what was not in their control..
But, they did not quit, they did conquer all !!!
Time is all they needed..
PP said it was on hold /suspended until they could work it all out, and they have !!
WHOOOPIE!!!!

if Erica cannot make it back full-time and/or just does guest episodes? that could work…. I really think they should bring back Brooke to be the grand dame…. I just loved Amanda… she finally made it big and found true love with Jake and had her son. the reunion with amanda and her mom, Janet, was stunning… tears… i wonder whats taking so long with Tad Martin? he’s a definate pillar of pine valley… just saying… in giving us as much back of pine valley as they can. this goes for Dixie as well….. we’d have Brooke as the grand… Read more »

I;d love to see Lorraine Broderick as HW of AMC. Her talent is being wasted as a breakdown writer on DOOL. OLTL is more difficult. I wish that Ron Carlivati could write both that show and GH, but I know that’s not possible.

I am so happy Ron Carlivati and Frank Valenti are with GH now. NEVER bring them back to OLTL! IMO they were the worst HW/EP ever on OLTL and almost ruined it beyond repair.

Who do you like, Dena Higley? The only HW to equal Ron C is Michael Malone and the only EP to equal Frank V is Paul Rauch…

Ron’s writing is lazy. His grammar along is bad. And his storytelling is slow. And very dated. Frank, over-all, I don’t believe is that bad of a producer. But when he works with Ron it gives him a bad name.

I think moving the shows to Connecticut is a dumb decision. You’re losing a good chunk of the AMC cast who prefer living in LA. I know that now Rebecca Budig is likely to not return, since her home is in LA. And Cady McClain, who I believe lives in LA with her fiancé, may not return, especially with Jon’s decision to return to General Hospital.

As long as AMC is filmed in HD, I’m set. I just hope moving the show back to the east coast works out in their favors.

Frank Valentini and Ron Carvilati make a great Producer/Writing team, OLTL was never better over the last year of the initial run of the show.

All My Children Alum Finn Wittrock To Headline ‘Green Lantern’

From Pine Valley to the DC Universe! Now comes word that former All My Children star, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon Miller) will take on the role of Guy Gardner/Green Latern on the upcoming HBO Max series, Green Lantern from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Television.

According to Deadline who dropped the casting news, Wittrock’s Guy Gardner/Green Lantern is “a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likable.”

In the premise of the series, Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

Previously, Finn received Emmy nominations for his work on American Horror Story: Freak Show and for Versace: American Crime Story.

So what do you think of Finn’s new role? Comment below.
