There have been reports surfacing on the internet today, and one of interest here from ABC Soaps In Depth which is now reporting that as All My Children prepares to wrap production next month, it seems like Prospect Park, the production company who purchased the rights to air the show online, along with OLTL, is not quite ready to pick up where the show leaves off.
All My Children will end its 40-year-run on network television on September 23rd, and it had been rumored that Prospect Park would launch its web version on the 26th.
SID is stating from their sources that Prospect Park still hasn’t reached out to the AMC actors to negotiate new contracts. However, AMC executive producer Julie Hanan Carruthers and headwriter Lorraine Broderick have both lined up deals to continue on with the soap when it moves to the Prospect Park production model of the series.
In addition, if you recall in the ABC press release which stated from Prospect Park that they would continue to broadcast AMC and OLTL in the same format and same length, it made no mention of how often the shows would air. There are now reports from insiders that AMC may become a seasonal series — not a daily one — which would allow the cast to do other projects.
We will continue to bring you the latest on this developing story in the days and weeks to come. Now, we want to know from you… how would you feel if the saga of Pine Valley is seasonal, not on every day, and runs similar like a series like Venice does on the web?
