TVLine Update on AMC & OLTL Rescue: "Some inaccuracies & press release due out soon"!

TVLine.com has been doing some digging after last night’s bombshell from the New York Post that has All My Children and One Life to Live being saved and moved online to continue their sagas by a three year old media firm, Prospect Park, founded by former Walt Disney Studios  president, Richard H.  Frank and talent management executive, Jeff Kwatinetz.  Here  is what TVLine had to say below after doing some investigative work on the confusing situation:

TVLine: “While a Prospect Park rep did not immediately get back to us and an ABC Daytime spokesperson declined to comment, a well-placed ABC source did tell us that the Post‘s reporting contains “inaccuracies.” The insider could not elaborate on the errors — Will only existing episodes be streamed? Are Lucci and her hefty paycheck in fact not part of the deal? — but soap fans shouldn’t be kept guessing for long. I’m hearing that a press release regarding the rumored “rescue” is due out soon.”

Did the Post jump the gun here?  On-Air On-Soaps is continuing to report on the situation throughout the day.   Stay tuned for more info on this developing story!

If Prospect Park picks up One Life To Live and All My Children, we (hundreds of millions of LOYAL viewers) will come immediately…. and as we have done for 40 plus years, in support of our beloved shows, we will bring our significant Sponsor Product buying dollars with us.

Yes, there are millions of soap viewers, but not online. I pray this isn’t true, the shows won’t make it. Not good enough, ABC/Disney.

Many of us are not able to get online coverage. I hope this

Wouldn’t do me any good. Live in rural America, along with lots of soap fans, can not get DSL access. This means could not watch the shows. Will not stop fighting for the soaps to come to a regular channel. Please join coupon mail in campaign to help find a real home for the soaps go to sudz.tv

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…)
