Fantastic news soapers! After all the questions, comments, and rightful concerns about how Prospect Park was going to be able to deliver One Life to Live and All My Children online without the most important entity of all for soaps … the writers … that has been rectified and solved!
According to Deadline.com, yesterday, Prospect Park closed a deal with the WGA (Writers Guild of America) reaching an agreement to be able to bring qualified soap writers and talent to the online reboot for the stories of One Life to Live and All My Children! As fans know, Prospect Park was looking into using fi-core writers because they were having difficulties coming up with an acceptable deal with the Writer’s union. As well, Daytime Confidential reported that an insider revealed that residuals were the sticking point to the deal: “Prospect Park hopes to air the episodes of All My Children and One Life to Live on cable and in other countries, after their initial online airings. The WGA couldn’t afford to make a deal that didn’t include residuals for the writers.”
So soapers, all systems now are go, and we are on and greenlighted to see One Life to Live and All My Children hopefully begin to tape in February as Prospect Park has announced in their studios in Stamford, Connecticut. Looks like one last and key part of this remains: finalizing the casts from One Life to Live and All My Children and just who is going to be part of the beginning of the reboot.
Let us know, who would you like to see being on the writing teams of One Life and AMC? Are you now of the belief that One Life to Live and All My Children have crossed the biggest hurdle and will be ready to go? Weigh-in!
