EW.com has a feature with comments made by AMC and OLTL creator, Agnes Nixon from the panel held last week at the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles honoring All My Children’s 4oth, and it’s move west, plus some extras On-Air On-Soaps coverage of the event can be found on our special event page. In the EW feature, Agnes gives her thoughts on OLTL’s future, and Susan Lucci having the ability to go back and forth from her home in NY to tape in LA, so she could continue playing Erica Kane.
Agnes on if she was worried about Lucci continuing with AMC because her family is on the east coast: “She’s working here one week and doing I don’t know how many shows. They’re doing it movie style now, of course, which they have been for some time. I think Susan’s very satisfied. She’s staying here for one week and going home for two.”
Agnes on if she is worried about her other soap, One Life to Live: “I don’t think so. I certainly can’t speak for the network. First of all, as we’ve all said, it’s a great vote of confidence that the network moved the show out here. They’ve moved One Life into a studio and that’s much bigger for them than the one they had. They are really some great people there. …As long as people work hard and don’t take it for granted… If they keep telling a good story, I think they’ll be alright.”
