I will definitely be listening, because TOLN/Prospect Park has been listening to the fans by bringing back OLTL! Now that even more people are late in joining the revival party, and viewers are getting caught up and learning to use Hulu or iTunes, will you eventually go to more weekly episodes, or making the shows longer?

It wont bother me if swearwords are eliminated. A couple of hell or damn words an episode are not too offensive. However, I feel that since PP is trying to get new younger viewers they can clean up some of the sex scenes such as Pete and Colby in bed. Also, some of the younger characters on OLTL like Matthew and Dani are becoming mouthy spoiled brats.

Obviously people with good taste win here…cussing too much didnt make the shows real…soaps, like i said b4 were and never will be real…long lost children show up and their mommies dont remember they were ever pregnant, characters come back from the dead, no one really has finacial troubles…where are the poor people in these towns…everyone finds nice furnished apartments and wear the finest clothes, and are lucky to get great jobs without any training, people like Victor get reconstruction surgery without scars, no one dies from gunshot wounds years later like some people really do…teens dont get acne, they… Read more »

I agree with Linda and with many others – listen, I’m a guy, when I’m driving my car and someone Cuts me off, trust me, I don’t say, “golly, that driver cut right in front of me”, no, I spew out some words that would make a Sailor blush. But the point is, and both Linda and jimh have already stated this, the soaps aren’t supposed to be “real life”, they’re supposed to be soaps. I don’t have kids, but if I did I would want them watching something that set “some” kind of an example to emulate. So, I… Read more »

I would like you to ask Jeff;
Why he bowed to the Bloomer Brigade who faint over a couple of cuss words, that in fact, made the revised soap touch reality, being true to the real world, and why he is bringing them back to boring unrealistic network tv restricted soaps..
I am not happy he caved in .. Shame on Jeff..

If they were so boring and unrealistic on the network, why did you even watch? ive read your past comments how good gh is with Franco ect. and they dont have all that extra cussing and sex…so why cant amc and oltl be just as good without it?

AMC and OL will always be good/great, but- because these are now internet soaps and have a change to make it into this era of media after 50 yrs of censoring, I liked the change of bringing them to reality, the real world not a pretending, not near reality, soap world….. I like the internet soaps because PP was not censoring the internet soaps .. The cussing was not all that much and it brought reality, real life, into the soaps.. I was happy the 2 soaps had evolved and were not like the restricted censored network tv soaps.. The… Read more »

It may seem im 100% against you but im not…ive said in the past i didnt mind some cussing but ‘shit’ was used like 6 times in the first episode and i think its overuse then turned off a lot of people…twice they might of overlooked…ive used the f word myself out of anger but i dont like using it, and i dont swear like i once did…i didnt have a spiritual awakening and i dont go to church every sunday…its just hearing it so often…imo…was unneccasary and sounded trashy! When im in a public place, especially where there are… Read more »

I was disappointed that the topic of the shows only airing for 1 hour a week didn’t come up. Having OLTL on only Tues and Thurs has taken all of the fun out of the show for me. Between Thursday and Tuesday there is no cliffhanger that keeps you caring about what happens next. The More episodes are now completely useless. Who can’t keep up with 1 hour a week. I pray that Prospect Park comes to their senses and airs both shows Mon, Wed, Fri…..then have the More episode on Sunday….to get viewers excited for the next day. The… Read more »

Todd you bring up a good point, why in the World do we need a “catch up” show called “More” when they only give us two episodes – these Friday shows are just useless “filler” really –

Really enjoyed last nights show. Fun and informative. Jeff Kwantinetz was candid, cool and communicated his great love for the shows that he sees as art. I have to agree, and also a big yes to trusting your creative team! He has every reason to feel proud of the effort, the shows are fantastic.

Man, too bad this show was done the same night as Game 7, NBA Finals cuz I was Miami bound. Will wait for the EP Jennifer Pepperman live talk to ask my questions. Did listen and it was very informative, good job.

All My Children Alum Cornelius Smith Jr. Joins the Cast of Apple TV+ Limited Series, ‘Five Days At Memorial’

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.

The series will stream on Apple TV+, and no word yet as to when it will have its debut following its filming.

 

Since his time on All My Children, Smith has appeared on ABC’s Scandal, and had recurring roles on God Friended MeSelf Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker and Manhunt.

Deadline broke the casting news.

So, looking forward to seeing Cornelius back on our screens? Do you remember his work as Dr. Frankie Hubbard on All My Children? Comment below.
