All My Children’s, Walt Willey (Jackson Montgomery) spoke with The Times over the weekend while in Ottawa prepping for a production of Neil Simon’s Plaza Suite! Willey offered up his thoughts and concerns on the news that AMC will be soon moving to the web. Willey stated, “Everyone I’ve spoken to, in terms of actors, not a soul has been contacted.” The actor is speaking of Prospect Park, the entity who bought the rights to AMC & OLTL.

A longtime veteran of AMC, Willey believes that few All My Children fans are Internet-savvy, and is skeptical about how some might be able to see new episodes.  “It’s an interesting choice. The fans have worked very hard on our behalf, but this could be a hollow victory for them.

According to the The Times, All My Children is on a production hiatus, with shooting to resume Monday, July 25, and wrap prior to Labor Day weekend. The final ABC episode is due to air Friday, Sept. 23.

So basically when they come back to work on July 25th the show will talk to them about coming over to online (or not). I am sure not all the cast will be asked to stay. What on earth will they do with Jesse since Angie (Debbie Morgan) isn’t staying?

Well from my experience working with the elderly. I watched 2 people go through the nursing home with a computer in my 10 years of working there. One of them was a 40 year old that had a stroke. Anyways this way does leave many fans behind especially the ones that was told they don’t count basically because they wasn’t in the 18-49 demographic. Less than 50% of the 65+ demographic is online and I feel that the ones who watched these shows since soaps came into existence are once again being disrespected and forgotten. This coming from a 27… Read more »

Come everyone, the soaps could very well be the “thing” needed to get all the last hold outs online. I certainly do not want to advertise in this forum, but Walmat has one of the first knock of “pad” devices for $188.00 cdn, so cost should no longer be an issue, think how all the seniors and others who will benefit by having the soaps online and getting they first device connecting them to the web, and yes, it does an output for a larger screen.

I don’t know. Everyone had to get new TV sets when the conversion happened a few years ago. People wanted to see TV so they got the new equipment. If people want to see soaps, they will get the new equipment.

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.
