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.

TONIGHT: All My Children’s Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams Together Again on All-New Episode of ‘Our Kind of People’

The Fox drama, Our Kind of People (9 pm ET/8pm CT), will feature a reunion, of sorts, on tonight’s January 18th episode when Debbi Morgan (Ex-Angie, All My Children) once again shares screen-time with her former on-screen soap opera love, Darnell Williams (Ex-Jesse, All My Children).

While mum’s the word as to Williams role, we know that Debbi plays Angela’s Aunt Piggy on the series, and in last week’s installment, Piggy went to the police station to turn herself in for the murder of her ex-boyfriend years ago.  However, Darnell’s character could hold the key as to what really went down in the murder.

Debbi spoke to TV Line about acting again with Darnell: “We were shooting the scene when Darnell’s character walks through the door for the first time.  And it was the first time we see this character on the show, and I looked at him and shouted, ‘Jesse!’ The director had to yell cut and everyone fell out laughing. It was hilarious. I knew that wasn’t his name on Our Kind of People but I couldn’t help myself. We worked together for so many years as Angie and Jesse and that’s the first thing that came to my mind.”

For those who have not checked out Our Kind of People, it takes place in the aspirational world of Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard, a historical stronghold where the rich and powerful Black elite have come to play for over 50 years.

In story, strong-willed single mom Angela Vaughn (Ex-AMC star, Yaya Decosta) sets out to reclaim her family’s name and make an impact with her revolutionary hair care line that highlights the innate, natural beauty of Black women, but she soon discovers a dark secret about her own mother’s past that will turn her world upside-down and shake up this community forever. The show is a soapy, thrilling exploration of race and class in America and an unapologetic celebration of Black resilience and achievement.

The series is from writer and executive producer Karin Gist (Star, Grey’s Anatomy) and executive producer Lee Daniels (Empire, The United States Vs. Billie Holiday).

So, will you be watching Debbi and Darnell together on tonight’s Our Kind of People? Comment below.

Three-Time Daytime Emmy Winner, Cady McClain, Reveals She’s ‘Back On Set’ But On Which Show?

After her Instagram post earlier this week, fans of Cady McClain have been attempting to dissect her cryptic tease of a message. McClain, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, shared the good news with fans that she is ‘back to work’, except she didn’t share which show or project she is working on … just yet!

In her post, McClain teased: “Back on set! Fun to be working again on such a terrific show! Can’t wait to be able to share the news with you all soon! Meantime, hoping you are all taking good care of yourselves. Sending hugs!! ”

Now, it could be Cady is working on a primetime show, not a daytime show, but we shall see.

She has previously appeared on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives of the four remaining daytime soaps.  On Y&R she played Kelly Andrews, and on DAYS, Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  And, as viewers of the NBC soap saw this week, Jennifer (in a short appearance by Melissa Reeves) returned to Salem with Jack (Matthew Ashford), only to tie-up loose ends over the holidays and exit the show.

Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, could McClain be returning there, or might she pop up on GH and B&B? The character of Kelly was killed-off of Y&R back in 2015.

Previously, Cady became soap-famous for her roles as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children and Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns.

Share your thoughts on which show you hope Cady is working on, whether, primetime, daytime, or a streaming series, in the comment section below.
