More details are continuing to leak out concerning Prospect Park’s move to reintroduce All My Children and One Life to Live online after their stalled attempt at the end of 2011.

According to a report from Daytime Confidential today, it appears that Ginger Smith has been named the new executive producer of the online version of AMC!

Smith had been a production team member for 20 years on All My Children starting her career as production intern and then moved to Production Coordinator.  Ginger eventually landed the spot as Coordinating Producer for the series and later was promoted to Supervising Producer from 1999-2004.  From 2004-10 Smith was a producer for the series, and even wrote for the characters of Pine Valley in 2008!

So with the news comes the question, who is going to helm One Life to Live?  More on that as this story develops!

In the meantime, what do you think of Smith as the showrunner for Pine Valley? Let us know your thoughts!

LB or CL would be a great choice for HW (DOOL isn’t properly utilizing LB’s talent). Unfortunately, unless they can come to terms with the Writers’ Guild, PP will only be using Fi-Core scribes.

ABC should wake up and grab a ratings bonanza by resuscitating One Life and All My Kids. The are sitting on piles of advertising dollars- tons of fans would tune into a qualitatively produced new version of both shows on network TV. Seriously- don’t they realize that their audience is sleeping through The Chew/Kaite??

They would be very wise as well, no matter whom they hire as head writer, to enlist Agnes Nixon as a consultant–and LISTEN to her. ABC so often didn’t in the show’s last decade, much to the show’s detriment.

I also hope that Prospect Park understands what ABC seems not to have until the last year or so: that the headwriter matters, and that good writing matters, and that viewers care about the writing and won’t watch just because we like the characters/actors.

Lorraine Broderick is part of the writing staff at DOOL. Perhaps they will allow her to leave and return to AMC.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
