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.

I”ll take it! I want to visit Llanview & Pine Valley again! Let’s say a more permenate

minutes all those years ago!

Wonderful news! There has been such a huge void without these cherished shows. I can’t wait for them to return.

I’m with you, Troy. PP released a statement in 2011 and I remember how that turned out. I need more convincing, too!

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

They have the financing secured this time. It’s happening.

Me too! I still have a little uneasy feeling.

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 returns to ABC they’ll likely announce that in April.

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

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

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
