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.

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

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.
