Agnes Nixon, creator of ABC’s daytime drama All My Children will be returning to the show as Agnes Eckhart, a long standing board member of Pine Valley Hospital before the series goes off network television.

Nixon first appeared on AMC in 2005 as the character Agnes Eckhardt, a role she created to celebrate the show’s 35th Anniversary. This time around, Agnes Eckhardt is admitted to Pine Valley Hospital where Cara (Lindsay Hartley) and David (Vincent Irizarry) tend to her. She also crosses paths with Erica Kane (Susan Lucci). Agnes has a profound effect on all of the characters she interacts with that changes the course of their lives. Nixon’s first episode airs on August 31, 2011.

Nixon, often called the “queen of the modern soap opera,” created All My Children in 1970. She was a pioneer in daytime, writing for such shows as  Another WorldGuiding Light, As the World Turns and Search for Tomorrow before going on to create  One Life to Live, All My Children, The City and Loving. It was on these shows where Nixon brought many current and important social issues to the small screen. She was honored in 2010 with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 37th Annual Daytime Emmys.
