Prospect Park To Confirm All My Children & One Life To Live Revival Plans!

Fans have been eagerly awaiting to hear news directly from Prospect Park on their proposed plans on bringing All My Children and One Life to Live back and online!  Word this morning out of Deadline.com is that the confirmation and official statement may be coming as early as later today!

According to Deadline.com, “The company has kept quiet on the subject as it has continued to work on guild agreements, financing and distribution.”

In addition, it looks like Prospect Park did indeed reach out to the WGA (Writers Guild of America) a couple of weeks ago and is awaiting a response.  This is a key element to what most have voiced concerned about …  the writing of the stories of Llanview and Pine Valley.   As has been reported, filming is eyed to begin next month in Stamford, CT, with the producers already signing executive producers and actors as soap fans have noted in the last few weeks.

We will have more on this developing story! Stay tuned.

Will you feel more rest-assured that OLTL and AMC will make it online once you hear from Prospect Park?  Let us know!

I do believe that once they announce it..and more actors sign up..we all will feel a lot better about AMC /OLTL.. I cannot wait to see what exactly they do with the characters for both shows..it’s got to be a huge task to re-design sets etc. Cannot wait to see them all again..30 minutes a day will have to do..it’s much better than NOTHING at all.

The soap are 30 minutes in time, what fills the hour are the commercials..
I watch the soaps in their entirety on-line and with the on-line commercials they run about 36 minutes..

30 Minute show means about 25 minutes or so of show now, as they will have limited commercials. If they make them to fit a TV slot of 30 minutes the shows will run about 21 minutes.

Before I get labelled as a hater, I’ve been one of those working on getting AMC and OLTL back since Black Thursday-so I’ve been through the PP rollercoaster before. I’m sorry, gang-until they give us more details, this is all just talk

This could be the biggest day for the soap opera genre in over a decade. When its announced officially by PP that these two shows are coming back man people are going to be so relieved. The fact that DAYS is coming back to NBC, really does mean the predictions were right on 2013 being the revival year for the soaps to comeback from the dead. My remaining question will be what television network will they air on, I don’t expect PP to announce a television home today yet that’ll probably come after they start shooting the show. If it… Read more »

Hi Michael, thank you for keeping us updated. I am one of the wait until I see it skeptics. I would love for it to happen and will be forever grateful to PP if they actually reboot and air our beloved soaps, until I see them I can’t get excited. However I will feel a lot better if PP does make a formal statement. I will be estatic if they come back, I am a proud soap fan of 36 years, devoted to ABC soaps

Have they given any indication of what these shows will be? I’m guessing that there isn’t enough money for one hour, five day a week 52 week a year show. What can we expect?

TRW
Guest

This has been reported last week.

30 minute shows, 4 days a week with Friday recap shows, something like 42 weeks a year.

Troy Turner

Nothing official, as per usual, but this is what I’ve been hearing. There are two possibilities-4 days a week, 30 min-with a week in review on Friday, or telenovela-style 5-week arcs alternating between the two. But, then again, this could be all just talk

Kelly Ripa Launches Podcast on SiriusXM

Former All My Children stars Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo) can add launching a podcast to their extensive resume through their production company, Milojo Productions, and Sirius XM.

According to Deadline, Ripa will host Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, where she will have in-depth conversations with celebrity guests. Depending on the subject matter, a specialist or expert could also join the episode to provide insight.

In a statement on her new hosting gig and show, Ripa expressed: “After 23 years of interviewing celebrities, authors, musicians and experts on live TV, the big takeaway is that the most compelling and unfiltered conversations happen off camera. I have dreamed of a platform where I can have these honest talks without all the fuss and filter of a camera. Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”

New episodes of Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa will be available every week on Stitcher, the SXM App, and all major podcast listening platforms beginning in March.

Kelly will be quite busy co-hosting the syndicated talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan, in addition to Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.

So, will you check out Kelly’s new podcast? Hope she has some All My Children alum on as guests? Comment below.

Michael B. Jordan Recalls His Acting Start as All My Children’s Reggie in SNL Opening Monologue

Last night, Michael B. Jordan hosted Saturday Night Live.  The Creed star, who is the director of the upcoming Creed III due out in March, took to the stage to deliver his opening monologue, and right off the top he mentioned his beginnings as All My Children’s Reggie.

Jordan portrayed Reggie from 2003-2006 on the ABC soap opera (his character was eventually adopted by Jack Montgomery).

When Michael hit the stage, he shared: “Yesterday, I had a crazy full-circle moment. We pre-shot some videos for the show and when I got to the studio I realized it was the exact same place where I shot one of my first acting roles on the soap opera All My Children.

He then tossed to a clip of his 16-year-old self in which Reggie says, “sometimes the animal in me gets kind of crazy” and then howls life a wolf at the end of the scene. Back to the SNL stage, Jordan said mockingly, “I’m pretty sure I hit puberty mid-howl.”

Jordan ended his monologue by looping it back to his early acting days on AMC, sharing: “I just want to say, I’m so grateful to be standing on this stage. Sometimes, I can take myself a little too seriously but tonight, I’m going to have fun, I’m just going to go for it. And maybe, just maybe let the inner animal get a little crazy.”

Watch Michael’s opening monologue below.  Then let us know, what did you think of the the AMC Reggie clip reference? Do you recall Michael’s days on the ABC daytime drama series? Comment below.
