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?
