115 June 20th, 2013 BREAKING NEWS: Prospect Park Resolves Labor Dispute With I.A.T.S.E.! Production To Resume As Scheduled For AMC & OLTL!

Courtesy/TOLN

Fantastic news for fans of the online revivals of All My Children and One Life to Live this afternoon! In an official statement just released, the labor dispute between Prospect Park and the Union has been resolved meaning new episodes will begin shooting after the current hiatus!

The official statement reads: “Today Prospect Park and the I.A.T.S.E. New York Production Locals 52, 161, 600, 700, 764, 798 and USA829 are pleased to announce that the two parties have resolved issues related to the production of  All My Children and One Life To Live to their mutual satisfaction. As a result production of both series will resume, as planned following the shows’ hiatus, on August 12, 2013.

Speaking on behalf of the New York Production Locals, Local 600 Representative David Blake stated, “We are pleased that that the parties were able to successfully address their concerns in a mutually beneficial way, which will enable these innovative shows to continue to be produced with our talented crews.”

“We thank the entire I.A.T.S.E. organization for their continued support in bringing these shows to fans, and we especially appreciate the efforts of Chaim Kantor and John Ford and our entire crew for helping us to move forward as a unified team,” said Jeff Kwatinetz.”

New episodes of both series are being produced by Prospect Park and The OnLine Network. One Life to Live debuted on ABC in 1968, and All My Children debuted on ABC in 1970. The shows were created by Agnes Nixon, and each ran for more than 40 years, until 2011. Both series have won numerous Daytime Emmys, and have earned hundreds of nominations in various categories. TOLN brought the shows back on April 29, 2013 and audiences can still log into HULU and iTunes to catch brand new episodes Mondays through Thursdays on HULU and iTunes.

So soap fans, and AMC and OLTL fans, happy to hear the news of the resolution between the Union and Prospect Park?  Are you excited to know new episodes will begin shooting in August? Share your thoughts on this breaking news!

    All my children sucks. Susan lucci needs to come back or the soap will be cancelled again. the storylines suck. agnes nixon is such a bitch. she is senile and needs to retire. please cancel one life to live. horrible writing and bad storylines. get rid of the show now. cancel it now. too painful to watch anymore.

    Kevin replied

    Wow, Nancy, who pooped in your Cornflakes this morning?

    JOANNE replied

    BITTER..AREN’T WE..DAMN U DONT NEED TO WATCH NANCY

    Ginger replied

    I love the new AMC and OLTL and if you don’t, why ya watchin? Hope they run for a really long tome, I especially like the new actos and actresses!!

    CL replied

    Isn’t that the truth, there are ppl out there that want it to fail. Sucks. And what is this crap Nancy that AMC sucks, what stories are you watching? I love it! It will not be cancelled again. Storylines are awesome. How can you say AN is a bitch? Senile? Where is this coming from? Cancel OLTL, you must work for ABC/Disney then. A troll who wants the shows to fail. If it is way too painful to watch darling, perhaps you need to stop watching then, perfect solution for you. As for the rest of us, we will continue watching. I hate when ppl complain about something and then have time to come on here and gripe. Get a life!

    Annie replied

    You mean people like Nancy? Wow, just wow.

    John Jack Royal replied

    I’m loving AMC & OLTL! I’m thrilled they will be returning. To the cast & crew ,please disregard mean comments and people expressing a desire for you to fail and become unemployed.These mean spirited negative people are not representative of your many loyal ,dedicated fans. Keep up the good work!

    boes replied

    Feel sorry for poor Nancy. She’s been locked in her basement now for way too long. Surviving on cheetos and bitterness can do that to a person.

    BTW, Nancy, I hear Agnes Nixon hates you more. Who can argue with her?

    Really, though, just another non-watcher who likes to stir it up. Now I have to wonder how she got access to the internet at the asylum…..

    susan M. replied

    Nancy made a comment that she works for ABC! And wants more talk & reality
    shows on abc. And sad Agnes is an old bat & should retire. And still saying both soaps stink and should be cancelled again. See her comments on 6/20 at
    11:50p.m. More vicious comments! BELOW!

    Christine replied

    More like who peed in her wheaties

    Denise replied

    Wow Nancy! Shame on you! If you don’t like the shows, writer’s, or actor’s then just stop watching and stop this horrible talk … you are ungrateful and trying to ruin it for everyone else… It’s the ole adage our parent’s taught us…”if you don’t have anything nice to say then say nothing at all!” Shame Shame Shame on you… I love everyone working so hard bringing us our shows that were resurrected from the dead… Thanks to all of you….

    susan M. replied

    Well Nancy, if you feel that way don’t watch OLTL & AMC! You seem very BITTER!
    I am very happy the dispute was resolved. Agnes Nixon is not a bitch by no means. If it is too painful for you to watch well, don’t watch and go read a book instead! We soap fans will continue to watch & support our soaps! DUTIE HEAD!

    LOL Susan, your reply came to me instead of Nancy…im ok with it…i agree with you!

    Joshua replied

    Yeah, Nancy, that is a little harsh. Okay, a lot harsh.

    Granted, I am not LOVING “All My TEENAGE Children” and “One TEENAGE Life to Live,” I am patient with them and crossing my fingers the vets will get some story lines before Christmas.

    Sandy replied

    I am very excited to hear that production will be restarting up in August. Now PP, lets take the web series global and make a big splash. Show all the doubters that this is the wave of the future. Bring back the veterans that put the soaps on the air and made us fall in love with AMC and OLTL. The younger actors rightfully don’t have the “grit” of experience yet to make us love them like we do the veterans; Yes, we do need the young actors to attract new viewers but they alone won’t keep the show online. Find a good balance of the two eras and you will be in production for a long timel.

    Reply

    jimh replied

    im in total agreement with you, Sandy! im wiling to give it more time too.

    Denise replied

    Amen Sandy! I think a good balance would be good … I do love all the younger crowd but also hope to see more of our other Character’s brought back… I’m still having a difficult time with the new JR character and storyline LOL Just isn’t JR anymore…

    Now that that is settled, is there any way that they can start showing episodes 4 days a week again?

    Char replied

    I actually like having less episodes. I work full time and I don’t feel under pressure to stay on top of them. I enjoy them enough to want more more more, but at the end of the day, I get to digest them long enough to anticipate the next one. I’m liking the new 2x a week per show.

    Reply

    nancy replied

    We need more episodes char. all of us are losing intrest in both soaps. 4 episodes a week would be a better fit. or they will be cancelled yet again.

    Char replied

    I’ve not seen any evidence of this. Its how you think its going based on talking to others? Who iis all?

    susan M. replied

    I am not losing interest in the soaps! And they aren’t going to be cancelled . That’s the second time you mentioned that(nancy)…All I can say don’t watch them… If you feel that way.

    Margo replied

    Wow Nancy, not sure where you’re getting all of your information but please don’t speak for the rest of us fans who love the new shows and will take them any way we can get them whether it’s 2 times a week or 4.

    Denise replied

    Then you have the option to watch during your lunch hour or breaks, or evenings, or weekends… the rest of us would love to have 4 days back and hope one day it could be 5 days per week of episode’s only…. Sorry you feel this way but why should we suffer with less for you… meant in a nice way :)

  6. su0000 says:

    I and many others new it was nothing to worry over, just union stuff, it would be settled soon, and it was ..

    that is good news for the very many who said; PP would go bankrupt , PP would cancel the soaps, PP doesn’t know how to do this and that, this is the end of the soaps, it was all doom and gloom from many LOL
    I am happy all is settled and PP will continue on with our soaps!!
    I hope this will end the cures on PP and the soaps :)
    PP has survived through all the obstacles thrown in their path !

    Now the only thing they need are some stronger scripts and some familiar faces
    and they will be all set!
    Doesn’t it just seem like without Tad Martin there as played by Michael E. Knight
    and without Susan Lucci as Erica Kane that PINE VALLEY just isn’t the same?
    Also, whatever happened to Dr. Castillo who is a doctor at Pine Valley Hospital?
    Isn’t he Cara’s brother? What happened?

    They are never mentioned GiGi, Rex ,Shane,and most of all Jessica.

    Jules replied

    Dr. Castillo I’ve wondered about, though I can’t say I ever cared about his presence even on the best day. Personally, I’ve been waiting on more Adam for WEEKS and WEEKS now! We haven’t seen him since what? Week 3?

    susan M. replied

    Well Ms. Lucci is busy doing others things and she might make an appearence on AMC if her schedule permits . That’s what she said a while ago.

    Denise replied

    Susan Lucci is in lots of other show’s but we can pray success there and that she will at least be a guest star occasionally on AMC … never know what can happen in the future… maybe yes and maybe no… she is in the new Devious Maids right now… great show too… love being retired and watching TV & On-Line all day hehehehehe

    Why do YOU have to PAY for your soap?????

    Reply

    boes replied

    Someone’s taking you to the cleaners if you’re paying. Unless, that is, you chose to. It’s free through HULU – something that has been said, typed, and shouted from the rooftops for months on end.

    Unless you’re one of the non-watchers who just come onto these sites to complain about shows you don’t watch.

    Reply

    Jules replied

    I’m Canadian and I have no other option but to pay via ITunes. But I do so with a smile in my heart. I told myself back in November/December 2011 when the first words of PP picking up OLTL/AMC were announced that I would pay if necessary as a way of showing my support. Now that I have to, I have no complaints.

    Denise replied

    I’m getting really tired of the hater’s too… why do they even waste their time complaining and calling foul names at this hard working team to bring the shows for us that do appreciate them… I think when they are calling people foul names Hulu and ITunes should block them from their sites including the comment site’s… Hater’s are a waste of time to society… they must be very unhappy folks in a miserable life to act this way :)

    Denise replied

    Maybe in the future things will change for you guys in Canada…sure hope so… It’s your own networks there that caused this for you not PP or TOLN … I don’t understand what prevents Hulu and ITunes from providing free to you like the U.S.??

    This is great news. Today’s (6/20) OLTL was the best yet, didn’t want the episode to end. Luv that Shaun is back, can’t wait to see him in scenes with Destiny.
    Looking forward to seeing the new One Life To Live become stronger, with the new writers, after the hiatus. Thanks Prospect Park and the unions for resolving.

    susan M. replied

    I agree with you Mark ! I am happy the dispute was resolved! OLTL has alway’s been my #1 favorite soap.. I hope more of the cast returns in Aug. OLTL was the best on 6/20 and threre was no cursing which they don’t need in the storyline. Never needed it before and it wasn’t necessary . Happy the unions resolved everything! Need more episodes like on 6/20! Viki really gave it to Clint ! And so did Natalie….This episode of OLTL ROCKS and I hope there are more to come like this
    episode! These are the kind of stories that made OLTL so great!

    Marlena, how did you get out fo the locked ward again? I swear, if we find you online ONE MORE TIME you’ll have to go back in the “Bad Room”. And that means no more Jumbo bags of Cheetos – and we’ll make you bathe again. Girl, you do reek a bit, you know that, right?

    So shuffle back down the hall to your room and don’t forget your bunny slippers.
    Anymore outbursts today and it will be enema time.

    Jody replied

    Hello Marlena. If Anybody can Tell their Opinions on here, then why are you Telling Gayle to Shut Up? All My Children Is NOT about to get Cancelled. All My Children is Number 1 on Hulu and I Tunes. I Watch All My Children AND One Life To Live. I don’t think One Life To Live is Better than All My Children. There is Todd and Victor and the Tattoo Organization and how is The Shelter Club Involved. However, Nothing Else is going on. I Watch Viki and the Paper and Nora with her Radio Show and that is almost all that is Happening. Maybe All My Children is Overly Dramatic, but I am Interested in what will be with Cassandra and will Jesse have to go to Prison for Faking Uri’s Death. I am Interested in David Hayward Finding out about His Child and whether David will be able to work at the Hospital. I am watching Brooke and Dimitri and Billy Clyde Tuggle. I still wonder who Celia’s Guardian is and IF that Guardian is that Man that Celia keeps Seeing. I Still Enjoy Opal. Jody

  27. Philip Chase says:

    What a relief that the problems have been solved and the shows resume production. Love them both and am still thrilled that PP brought them back. JMHO but ABC should never have cancelled them. Susan Lucci fans can get a weekly dose of LaLucci on the Lifetime presentation of “Deceptive Maids”. Someone suggested this Michelle stalker could turn out to be Hannah, who tried to kill Starr and James so she could live happily ever after with Cole. Well, Cole is dead and gone, so wouldn’t it be cool if Michelle turns out to be Hannah? LOL

    If these comments “await moderation” why on earth would Michael allow “Nancy” to post this?? This is a great and fun website where we can all bond with each other as soap fans, not be verbally abused by some troll. It’s one thing to disagree with another viewer over an actor or storyline or which soap is best but this is just nonsense. This is clearly just some dumb kid who’s bored at home getting his (or her) rocks off.

And I’m saying from both sides – I want AMC & OLTL to thrive online. And I don’t want to see The Chew canceled. We have so many options on TV. If you don’t like something, watch something else. I didn’t boycott NBC when they canceled Santa Barbara – a superior soap to ANY other :-)

    I had no doubt they wouldn’t resolve their issues. It is in both parties interest to work it out and they did. To all the Negative Nelly’s out there. Stop watching the shows! You are a very SMALL portion of the viewing audience and while you are entitled to your opinions, you are also entitled to the wrath of those who disagree with you. AMC and OLTL will be on the air for a LONG TIME, if you (haters) feel they suck, watch something else because the more you complain, it just shows you are watching two beloved shows enjoy a second lease on life!

    And to that bitter Nancy woman, get a life as you are a sad troll with vicious thoughts! Maybe Billy Clyde should kidnapp you and put you to work! LOL

    I love this site Micheal…its the best thanks to you…i hate to see it shut down but i do agree some people have gone to far with some of their vulgar and offensive replies…i recieved one but it never appeared on here and i appreciate it…my friend Kim sometimes uses my computer to comment as well…both of us always look forward to your interviews and agree you are the best there is…now that pp has decided to eliminate the cuss words some of us found overused and offensive, i hope some people on here will do the same when responding to others. These comments should be what we like and dislike about our soaps, and those who reply should explain why they agree or disagree without the name calling or condescending remarks. If they cant stop the name calling and continue the insults, id ban them from this site for good.

    Well said Ricardo. My comments were mean but in response to a meaner person for attacking Agnes. You’re right, name calling is an immature action and we are suppose to be adults.

This particular comment someone made on this site & started all this which I couldn’t believe the comments she made…I will not chime in anymore & avoid commenting on hateful remarks. I enjoy Michael Fairman’s site and all the wonderful information he gives us about

    This is wonderful news. I am not surprised that the situation was resolved quickly. Had they not be able to resolve this with the union and had taken the productions to another state, all of those union employees in Connecticut would be out of work.

    Am proying that the new writing team on OLTL will answer a burning question. Why did Alison Perskins kidnap Victor Lord Junior, how did Victor escape and what connection does Alison have to the tattooed mob that are trying to kill Victor now. PLEASE. CONNECT THE DOTS FOR US. Also to the new writing team, it’s amazing to me that Natalie has not once mentioned Roxy or Rex or Jessica. Sam, Jack and Dani have a sister, Starr. Not even a one way phone conversation. I hate it when writers think that if they never menton a character’s name that the audience will forget them.

    those are the same things id like addressed…they couldve at least had victor mention allison and where she kept him prisoner…bo couldve said the found allison unconcious and unable to speak because she is in a coma after being struck in the head…did victor do it…keep a little mystery going to keep us fans on edge but gradually reveal allisons connection to vics kidnapping, the tatoo orginazation ect. Plus let characters talk about Jessica, Rex and the others not shown by one way phone conversation or simply just by talking about them. we have families who live in other cities we dont see but we talk about them or we talk with them on the phone. hopefully new writers will touch on this.

    Thanks jimh…hopefully the new writers will write some of our favorites back into the show. (Barbara Garrick, Ilene Kristen please come back) After seeing Tuesday’s episode I can see why changes in the writing staff need to be made. Very uneven. Parts of it were fantastic (the scenes with Tea and Dani were deeply moving). On the opposite end of the spectrum was the Jack Manning storyline. Given that Jack has never ever expressed an interest in girls his out of nowhere love tryst with a total stranger was completely out of character. The scene came out of nowhere and just didnt ring true.

    I think Jack already knew her…i believe she’s his summer school teacher…the writers arent revealing her identity in that episode but will soon, i believe. The only girl he did seem interested in was Vimals sister Neela during the shows network run but they apparently forgotten her and she’s not even mention. i also think they shouldve had Shaun work as a bouncer at Shelter…i liked Shauns scenes with Destiny….your right about Tea and Dani…their scenes were very moving…need more of them…and Roxy too…wouldve been great fun seeing Roxi do Todds nails in that one episode. thanks 4 reply.

    Hello Richard. I think that Viki and Clint should mention Jessica. At least Tell us if Jessica had A Set Back and she is at St. Ann’s OR say that Jessica and Brody got Married and Moved out of Llanview. Jody

    Hey Nancy. Why do you call Agnes Nixon A Bitch? If she had gotten somebody Fired, then she would be A Bitch. If you think she is too old and shouldn’t have anything else to do with Storylines; then she is Not A Bitch. Jody
