This morning on Good Morning America, the series special Entertainment Correspondent, All My Children’s, Cameron Mathison (Ryan Lavery) brought to the show a terrific piece on the legacy of All My Children as it prepares to say goodbye to its 41-year-run on ABC next week. In the segment, Cameron is seen saying goodbye to Susan Lucci, touring the set, we see his first screen test, and multiple clips of Pine Valley throughout the decades. At the end of his segment, Cameron made an announcement that some of the stars of AMC are very close to signing on the dotted line with Prospect Park with a a few more details to be worked out.
Mathison stated, “I have been given permission to announce that I and others from All My Children have been approached by the company, Prospect Park, who bought AMC with the intention to move it online. Just as soaps were very pivotal in the transition from radio to television, they will be right in the thick of things again in the transition from television to the Internet.” Mathison added that while there are a few more details to be hammered out before any contracts are finalized, “it’s looking very good.”
As we are just seven shows away from the series finale, it all seems to be catching up on us, doesn’t it? Hard to believe, that this much lauded and historic show will soon be off network TV. Watch the GMA segment with Cam, after the jump!
