Prospect Park issues statement on AMC & OLTL's move online!



Prospect Park, the entertainment entity who is bringing All My Children and One Life to Live online, via their licensing deal with ABC, finally issued a statement to Soap Opera Weekly about the status of moving the series to the web and their new platform.  From reading below,  they are working out collective bargaining agreements with the guilds and  unions before they can move further with signing on talent, creatives and crews.

Prospect Park statement: “The love and support for All My Children and One Life to Live is truly amazing. Since we announced our intention to work with the shows, the fan outreach we’ve experienced over the past few weeks further validates our decision to work to keep them going for years to come. However we also respect the organizations and processes that are in place so that all can apply their craft within the infrastructure that the entertainment industry has set, specifically in this case with the appropriate guilds and unions. We are in the process of working out the essential terms of our proposed collective bargaining agreements with the appropriate guilds and unions, which we must do prior to firming up deals with above-and below-the-line talent. We will provide updates as needed.”

Soapers, stay tuned!

Thank you Prospect Park for saving our soaps!

I wished that this company never showed up. They’ve screwed us from the endings of AMC and OLTL.

I wish they never showed up either because of the endings and then we not only lost the soaps the first time by abc/disney we had to go through it for a second time by pp. How I wish it all would have turned out differently.

I love both OLTL AND AMC soaps. I have been watching our soaps since 18 years old. I’m not happy cancel our soaps. I don’t want to cancel both soaps. Fight save for OLTL and AMC.

Well, this makes sense. Seems like PP is really trying to do things the right way. Good for them.

YES, Prospect Park has my support, lets hope us Canadian are not left out, please.

DIDO!!! I really hope we can watch in Canada! We can’t watch soap net. I will be devastated if we can’t watch!! I’m willing to pay for OLTL!!

AGREED! Please, please please make this available in Canada

Can you please tell this computer challenged human being how are we going to access Prospect Park to see the soaps or other programs they provide. I apologize for my inability to comprehend anything computerish.

from what i just read prospect park hasn’t even signed the contract to move these soaps, tad, erica, and a few others are not going to be continuing with amc, after the end. PLEASE GIVE THEM WHAT THEY WANT AND GIVE US OUR SOAPS BACK, THAT IS WHAT MAKES OUR DAY, THEY ARE LIKE OUR OWN FAMILIES, I WILL MILL THEM SO MUCH, and putting in these stupid cooking shows LIKE THE CHEW, send them to food network, or the cooking show, we are being taken over by cooking, talk shows, reality shows, and there is nothing for us to watch any more, we have dozens and dozens of cooking shows why put them on our channels. PLEASE HELP US.

Please tell me AMC and OLTL will be available for viewing in Canada once they go online .I have been watching these for years and want to continue watching them. I can’t imagine my day without them. I have no interest in watching the crap they are replacing these shows with there is already to much of it on TV now.

Billy Miller Memorial Scholarship Endowment Created at His Alma Mater to Help Others ‘Realize Their Dreams’

Two months since three-time Daytime Emmy-winning actor, Billy Miller passed away, the beloved All My Children (ex-Richie), General Hospital (ex-Jason/Drew) and The Young and the Restless (ex-Billy) star, will now have a permanent scholarship endowment in his honor at the University of Texas at Austin which was Miller’s alma mater.

Through the scholarship, it will be able to help radio/television and film undergraduate students with financial need. Billy’s family and friends have established this permanent scholarship in his memory, naming it the William Jon Miller II “Billy Miller” Memorial Scholarship. They hope the endowment will be a legacy to his life and love of acting.

Before becoming soap-famous, Billy graduated from the the university’s department of Radio-Television-Film (RTF) at the Moody College of Communication. On its official website, they shared the news of this special memorial scholarship and how Miller died at the age of 43 after surrendering his life to bipolar depression, which he struggled with his whole life.

Megan Hubbell, Billy’s sister, expressed, “We want something positive to be held in his name in perpetuity through the University he loved. He would be honored to know that even in death, he can help someone else realize their dreams.”

She added how she hoped her immensely talented brother will be remembered: “I hope BJ (as Billy was known by to his friends and family) is remembered for the kind-hearted, silly, funny, goofy, generous, beautiful soul that he was His megawatt smile, deep belly laugh and gorgeous mug were gifts on screen, but his true self was a bright light that will be carried with us forever.”

According to Miller’s family, Billy had his picks of schools and UT was his first choice. When he first came to the university, Billy started in the zoology program before switching to radio-television-film, where he felt he belonged. Miller was one of just 20 students at the time accepted into the department’s prestigious production-sequence program.

“BJ was extremely proud to be a Texas Longhorn and always remembered his time there fondly,” Hubbell said. “The time he spent at UT allowed him the space to explore who he wanted to be and what he wanted to accomplish.”

In honoring her brother’s work and strength to persevere in the often heartbreaking world of entertainment, Megan related: “I always admired the guts it took to go after a dream in Hollywood that so many people tried to discourage. He heard, ‘You’ll never make it’ more times than I care to count, but he used those comments as fuel and said, ‘Watch me.’”

Miller’s roles went far beyond those on daytime soap operas, as throughout his career he played major parts in primetime’s Suits, Ray Donovan and Castle to name but a few.

In his death, Billy’s family is encouraging people to take stock of their own mental health. “BJ would want anyone struggling with intrusive thoughts to seek professional help,” Hubbell said. “Do not suffer in silence or try to muscle through on your own. Mental health is vitally important and shouldn’t be spoken about in silos behind closed doors but rather in open forums with open arms. Shame has no place in the discussion to seek help.”

As is tradition with “Live’s Halloween” episodes, they are always filled with costume and pop culture moments and special guest surprises. Ripa and Consuelos were right in step with the biggest social media love story at the moment; that of Swift and her burgeoning romance with Kansas City Chiefs Tight End, Travis Kelce.

During Halloween week which started on Monday, October 30, Live was up up 11% versus the week prior in total viewers, and averaged 2.6 million viewers throughout the week.  Year-over-year, the talk show was up that week by 15% in terms of total viewers.  It looks like the former All My Children’s alum on-screen chemistry is just as palpable as it off-screen; as the two marrieds are making quite a successful run together on morning television.
