27 February 2nd, 2013 NEP Broadcasting Converting Old Warehouse in Connecticut Into New Studio Home of AMC & OLTL!

NEP Broadcasting the country’s largest mobile production services company, is growing rapidly—expanding both internationally and on the web with new clients and forms of programming, and one of those happens to be Prospect Park and their new studio homes for the web versions of One Life to Live and All My Children!

According to a piece in Broadcasting Engineering, Barry Katz, senior vice president and general manager at NEP, related: “At the same time, what’s old is new.”  That was in reference to the fact that, “NEP is building studios in an old factory in Connecticut for the webcast versions of the soap operas All My Children and  One Life to Live. They start production on Feb. 25.”

“We became a Connecticut entity because of the tax credit there,” Katz said. “We can build a studio anywhere.” Currently, NEP has nine permanent studios in New York, two in the UK and 13 semi-permanent, custom control rooms in Connecticut, Los Angeles and the UK.

So soapers excited to here the new of the new studio homes to the town of Llanview and Pine Valley?  Let us know what you think about the shows being produced in Stamford, Connecticut, which is clearly closer to a lot of the original cast of One Life to Live and some of the original cast of All My Children, who did not relocate to L.A.   It is important to note: wasn’t it ABC who made AMC leave its digs in NYC to come to LA thus relocating many beloved performers?

    Michael, thanks for posting this article. I enjoy reading about the business side of the new versions of OLTL & AMC. Can’t wait to see the set designs, I wonder if PP is going with any of the designs we saw from the ABC studios. Do you think PP will be doing location shooting also?
    Thanks again for the updates and taking time during the weekend for the posts.

    True, but this is still better! If she can be on B&B all the time she can do OLTL! lol

    We have to support any decisions that are had with the Todd/Starr/John characters even though we may not agree because it will bring back our beloved soaps.

    I’m glad it’s closer for many of the OLTL actors, but I am concerned about the lack of core family characters/actors signing on for AMC. There was no mention of any of the Martins or Chandlers, just the Hubbards and Opal and Zack. The rest were fairly new to the show before it ended its broadcast run. OLTL was much more successful in getting the core back. That should help OLTL immensely.

    Yes Michael, I will ALWAYS remember that it was ABC/D that created this debacle in the first place.

    Viewers may not know that hit shows, such as Supernatural and The Walking Dead aren’t filmed in L.A. or NYC. Why? Because they have lower production costs and/or get tax credits elsewhere. Most soaps fans will remember that One Tree Hill was filmed in Wilmington, N.C. and I believe Dallas is filmed in and around Dallas, TX. Also, many actors travel to location shoots. I’m just glad these gems are back in production. Woo Hoo!

    My only modest concern is the fact that ALL MY CHILDREN will really have to “write around” some major characters, at least for a while.

    I hope that GH will keep up the the fantastic story lines, the crossover is so well done; has opened so many options and interesting possibilities for the plot lines. I love twists and turns and surprises , plus bringing back so many past characters has been great. I think that the ties between GH people and OLTL should continue, having them be involved at both shows in someway.
