Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) of All My Children took to her Facebook page just a short time ago and issued this statement to her fans, to let them know that she is not the reason Prospect Park had decided to not move forward with producing All My Children at this time.   Below are Lucci’s sentiments and her clearing the air!

Susan Lucci: “I want my fans to know the truth. There has been miscommunications as a result of statements in the press that I am one of the reasons that All My Children is not moving forward. This is simply untrue and not the case. We have been in discussions since Prospect Park first expressed interest in moving the series online, and in correspondence dated September 8th, I made it clear that I would be ecstatic to be a part of All My Children in a prominent way if they committed to producing the series for another year. I have not heard back from Prospect Park since then, in fact, I learned of their decision not to proceed with All My Children at the same time you did, through the media.

It’s been a privilege and honor to be involved with the All My Children family for so many years, from working closely with Agnes Nixon to getting to know millions of devoted and wonderful fans.”

First, Vincent Irizarry took his Facebook page to refute the reports that the reason AMC did not move forward with Prospect Park was because it was going to be too David heavy, and now Susan came forward with this statement.
So what is exactly going on with Prospect Park’s decision to halt AMC? It clearly would seem it is about the whole picture, not just about certain stars! Let us know your thoughts!

Is Prospect Park a cover company for ABC? Something to come along and get the fans hopes up, only to crush them in the end…..what is really going on?

My thoughts exactly! I feel like this whole thing (PP taking over AMC) was done to pacify all the angry soap fans – an elaborate smoke screen that ABC is somehow behind….

I was waiting for a statement from Susan. I didn’t think it was her OR any of the other cast members holding up PP with AMC. Seems more like a PP problem. Not enough money? So they put AMC on hold because the ratings were not as high as OLTL. They are saying if OLTL takes off with great ratings online, than chances are AMC will then return. As they make money, they can take on more shows. One step at a time. I can understand that, but what I do not understand is that we have heard NO word… Read more »

This is TOTALLY unacceptable. PP promised us AMC and OLTL. We the fans in turn threw our total support to PP and our belief in their word and integrity. They are greatly mistaken if they think we will roll over and let them kick us again. WE HAVE A VOICE AND WE WANT ANSWERS.

I am just furious about how this has all been handled…just a bunch of crazy rumors in lieu of any word at all from Prospect Park. They could fill us in once in a while. I knew Susan Lucci didn’t do what all the rumors said she did. She is a classy lady. And I also know most of the actors haven’t even been approached by PP. I just feel like PP is being disingenuous with us AMC fans and everyone else. I really want AMC back, particularly since we got the big cliffhanger and now we’re not even sure… Read more »

It all comes down to money which they clearly do not have and are apparently scrambling to get. Perhaps they feel like they can only get enough money for one show at this time and OLTL’s ratings were far better than AMC’s ratings so they went with them.

OLTL ratings are better but not “far better”, but the mileage PP could use to promote both shows going to the internet lies with AMC and SL. Susan is pop icon and for 41 yrs helped all daytime dramas. Some of daytime divas left and return but not Susan. Talk shows, morning shows, publications, radio etc would want SL because of her celebrity for interviews and that could help with money,, backers and the new launch. OLTL regardless of standing in ratings doesn’t have that type of appeal and will not garner the attention as AMC. This fan of AMC… Read more »

while I do agree AMC was affected more so than OLTL by Brian Frons, I can not agree that OLTL should pay the price…. OLTL has always stood on it’s own…. very crazy at times, but that’s why it’s a soap and why I love it so much….

There are first and foremost fans of AMC and then OLTL. I know a lot of people that feel this way and won’t support PP just solely for OLTL and that’s a fact. Viewers are being led and manipulated by PP as ABC and mark my words there will be a backlash. PP is being dead silent speaks volumes.

It may be true that many fans care about AMC and then only secondarily OLTL, but I have to tell you: there are many of us for whom the reverse is also true. I would hate to see either one of them die (again), and I will most likely watch AMC if it ever does make it online, but if the situation were reversed, and AMC was the sure bet but OLTL’s future was questionable, I wouldn’t watch AMC if OLTL didn’t get transferred. For me, the last three to five years of AMC pretty much destroyed the show, whereas… Read more »

Absolutely, I we all have our favorites between both shows. I know like myself many fans watched network blocks of soaps. Coming from CBS my favorite was always GL, but I watched CBS’s block of soaps. It is how advertisers “programmed” viewers when soaps started on network TV and along with what network your household tuned into to view. It created many generations of viewers and that was what all wanted …loyalty. This is what I’m saying it would benefit to run a block instead just one soap. Well, now the news yesterday it looks like fans of both shows… Read more »

Please don’t be too hard on Prospect Park…. at least they are trying… and for this, I thank them. Some hope is better than no hope, and yes, any “tv” show involves needing money to produce… but I do think it is wrong to “attack” Prospect Park for their effords.

Get real folks…………soaps on the net will not make it. Not enough people have a fast enough computer or broadband to watch it. In the future, internet tv’s and broadband wil be cheap enough and fast enough for everyone. Now, it would be a tremendous waste of money. Look for Prospect in the next month to say they are delaying the production of OLTL for the net……………………..

Just wondering why you think people are not prepared to watch online. I tend to watch all my tv online thru the networks websites…..

In regards to Susan Lucci and her being the so-called reason for the AMC delay….I’m not for sure about the whole PP angle, but it seems like to me that Cady McClain is the one who made the statement about Susan Lucci….she didn’t say it out right, but there was a lot assumption in the air. At least that’s how I felt, after I read her interview.

Prospect Park jumped on the bandwagon when they saw a profit to be made. But now that a few months have gone by, I think the reality is setting in. They are probably realizing there are a lot of kinks to work out from the actors and writing to the sets to the pricing models and so on.

PP was so concerned about getting the AMC audience before they moved on to something else, they didn’t really think the whole thing through.

Brian I did not say nobody in a country of 300 million people is watching tv online. I said not enough to make it profitable at the present time.

Susuan Lucci put her heart and soul into AMC offscreen she has a happy marriage and family she loves that show she was devasted. Remember she was fooled and uprooted to California for filming when her life and her husbands business is in New York. Personally I don’t beleive they were ever going to move them online I just think they were trying to fend off everyone going nuts 4 soaps cancelled in 2 years for game shows cooking shows etc because they are cheaper I have accepted it and the direction the remaning 4 or going they will be… Read more »

I don’t believe Prospect Park lied. I simply think it is overwhelmed with all of the financial issues to make this work. The immediate reaction when PP announced that it was licensing both shows and moving them with full episodes to the internet was how the company was going to make it work. If the shows had been profitable, networks wouldn’t be cancelling them at the current rate and other broadcasters would be clamoring to get them. Oprah Winfrey said as much when she announced that OWN was not pursuing them. Lucci’s statement indicates that she wanted a year commitment… Read more »
