With only 25 days till the online premiere of All My Children, The Online Network (TOLN) had posted a brand new video recap with amazing clips that tell the principle story of the citizens of Pine Valley, from the 41 year history of All My Children.  When AMC was cancelled by ABC, millions of fans were devastated that they will never know what happened to the beloved characters they have grown to love every day.  But that will all change … as the series jumps five years ahead with all new episodes!

Now to bring you up to date on what you need to know to get re-introduced to the iconic soap, Daytime Emmy winner, Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard) leads the viewers through a heart-tugging narration which sets up the characters and what is to come when the show debuts on April 29th on Hulu.com, HuluPlus, and iTunes!

In the recap, you will see Bianca Montgomery’s rape played by Eden Riegel,  Angie reuniting with Jesse (Darnell Williams) decades after she believed he was dead, Brooke (Julia Barr) and Adam (David Canary) coming together, J.R’s . gunshot in the finale, Dixie  (Cady McClain) holding a picture of Tad, and if you watch carefully you may learn who was shot, plus some new footage!  Watch it after the jump and then let us know, what you thought of the video recap that catches you up on life in Pine Valley?

Wow! WOW…. Woah….

Stunning…. Tears of incredulousness… “Welcome to Pine Valley”.

My first real soap… 25-30 years ago. is back.

if in fact… it’s Tad that may have perished… ala’ that gun shot… ? hearing his voice-over Loving AMC… was fantastic. it’s relevant that it’s his voice doing the nuAMC opening… and/or publicity for.

Brooke… Dixie… Angie… Bianca….

these women leading nuAMC…. plus, Opal…. how grand is that.

it’s going to be fantastic… going from the reel above.

you know… the ramifications… when and if Dixie’s son…. JR…. is “revealed”…

talk about STORY,, for the chandler empire… haunted portrayal…. Tad was a resounding grounding…. for JR. with Dixie gone… a humane balance… if you will…. this would be a coupe… story…to… resonate throughout Pine Valley.

This is beautiful. I wasn’t a regular AMC viewer and I’m in tears after watching this. I will be a regular viewing starting April 29th.

Thank you to everyone who is making this happen.

I’m in tears over the loss of David and Cara’s baby, UNLESS (I’m hoping!) it’s just David’s paranoid nightmare just before being released from prison! 🙁 🙂

NO! ? No….

say it isn’t true….

Dr. David Hayward… deserves “LOVE”….

if that’s what makes him so enigmatic…. “flawed”… cared about….

i hope his relationship with Angie is further explored in the nuAMC…

i just wish… Kyrstal was back…. to further develop… and intrigue us along… with Dr. David…. w/ Cara…. WHO IS MARVELOUS.

I don’t think its Tad. He has not said he would not return to AMC. So he may still come back. He might be in a coma in some hospital, if he was shot.

I hope it’s not Tad, but then again I can’t think of any character that I WOULD want it to be. I love them all. Bring it on!

This video is amazingly beautiful. Loved seeing some of the beloved performers from the past. I just knew they would do location shots in the Stamford area. So much more authentic for Pine Valley than the ones ABC did in L.A.

Looking forward to seeing Ms Morgan & Mr Williams back together, they truly are special on screen.

SUPER! Thank you Michael Fairman. You really bind everything together; I love your site and read it all the time. However I may feel from time to time about the success/lack of success about this endeavor, I know the viewers can count on you for the complete story! But must say that I was deeply touched by this video and was sitting at my computer crying. I do hope this is a success but as always, hope if it is, it will inspire the networks to return it to TV.

The video was great (but I liked OLTL video better). I really wish Tad was going to be part of this. There are really 4 people that should be part of it that are not. Tad, Erica, Kendall, and Jack. I know some are doing other projects but I think they should try to make it work for the fans.

Eva LaRue Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

During former All My Children, B&B and GH star, Jacob Young’s podcast, Real Conversations with Jacob Young, he welcomed his good friend and former Pine Valley cast mate, Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC, and Celeste, Y&R).

At the very top of the episode, LaRue revealed she and her daughter Kaya tested positive for Covid-19.  She shared, “We thought we had dodged a bullet, but sure enough, on New Year’s Eve, we both tested positive.”

“Oddly enough,” she goes on to say, “I really feel like we’ve been so sick of being scared to death of the invisible monster underneath the bed all last year, always looking over our shoulders.”  Eva added, “Nobody knows which one they are. Are they someone who’s going to survive it or succumb to it? Or have residual effects? All we can do is pray for the best.”

 

However, LaRue has been trying alternative methods of helping her with Covid-19 via IV treatments.  “I’ve got this amazing integrative doctor who I’ve been working with for a long time, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘No, we only do Western medicine,’ and that’s fine, I love Western medicine… but integrated medicine and Western medicine have to go hand in hand, in my opinion. Because, I just feel like, we need to open our minds to what is new and what is out there.”   So because of that, Eva has chosen to receive these treatments to hopefully starve off any long term effects of Covid.

In addition, Eva told Young she has hopes for the new primetime All My Children reboot that is in the works:  “I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be doing something with this new Pine Valley show.”   Remember, the Santos family and the Kanes are said to be the epicenter of the revival, so perhaps LaRue will be a guest-star on it, since she is also close friends with two of the EP’s, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC)!

Send your well-wishes to Eva and her daughter, Kaya and let us know would you love to see LaRue on the ‘Pine Valley’ primetime reboot?  Comment below.

All My Children Primetime Reboot “Pine Valley” in the Works at ABC from Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos and Andrew Stearn

Huge news that could bring back a new updated version of daytime’s All My Children to primetime!

ABC is eyeing a revival of Agnes Nixon’s long-running beloved series that ran for 41 years on the network and then saw an online reboot from Prospect Park that lasted only one season.

According to Deadline, former AMC stars Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) will executive produce along with Andrew Stearn and Agnes Nixon’s son, Robert Nixon.

 

The series is currently in the early stages of development, but what has been revealed is: the reboot will be written/executive produced by Leo Richardson (Katy Keene, Star), and it will center on a young journalist with a secret agenda who comes to expose the dark and murderous history of a town named Pine Valley only to become entangled in a feud between the Kane and Santos families. The series explores all the secrets that come with the Kane and Santos family names.

In the new incarnation, Pine Valley, will feature a new generation of characters and some old favorites.  As of this moment, no original cast members have deals, but the plan would be to have them make appearances, plus Ripa and Consuelos could also make a cameo.  Of course, many are already pondering if Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) might actually be a mainstay on the new primetime series; since the Kanes are one of the core families in the reboot.

Pine Valley plans to continue the original series’ tradition of tackling difficult social issues of our time and being inclusive, which the show was known for under the iconic Agnes Nixon’s storytelling.

Of note is that Stearn is also a lifelong fan of AMC and has been the driving force behind the reboot.  In fact when he was deciding between ABC Signature and one other studio for an overall deal, he chose ABC Signature because it was going to allow him to pursue his dream of rebooting All My Children.  It was then he started tracking down the rights to the soap.  As soap fans know, the rights to AMC reverted back to ABC after Prospect Park’s online version fell apart.

Later, after meeting with a number of writers to helm Pine Valley, Stearn went with Richardson, who had worked on the British soap EastEnders in his native Britain. Stearn also got on board the estate of Agnes Nixon, with son Robert Nixon joining the project as an executive producer.

So what do you think of “Pine Valley”, the All My Children primetime reboot being in development?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
