Prospect Park, the entertainment entity who is bringing All My Children and One Life to Live online, via their licensing deal with ABC, finally issued a statement to Soap Opera Weekly about the status of moving the series to the web and their new platform.  From reading below,  they are working out collective bargaining agreements with the guilds and  unions before they can move further with signing on talent, creatives and crews.

Prospect Park statement: “The love and support for All My Children and One Life to Live is truly amazing. Since we announced our intention to work with the shows, the fan outreach we’ve experienced over the past few weeks further validates our decision to work to keep them going for years to come. However we also respect the organizations and processes that are in place so that all can apply their craft within the infrastructure that the entertainment industry has set, specifically in this case with the appropriate guilds and unions. We are in the process of working out the essential terms of our proposed collective bargaining agreements with the appropriate guilds and unions, which we must do prior to firming up deals with above-and below-the-line talent. We will provide updates as needed.”

Soapers, stay tuned!

    I wished that this company never showed up. They’ve screwed us from the endings of AMC and OLTL.

    I wish they never showed up either because of the endings and then we not only lost the soaps the first time by abc/disney we had to go through it for a second time by pp. How I wish it all would have turned out differently.

    from what i just read prospect park hasn’t even signed the contract to move these soaps, tad, erica, and a few others are not going to be continuing with amc, after the end. PLEASE GIVE THEM WHAT THEY WANT AND GIVE US OUR SOAPS BACK, THAT IS WHAT MAKES OUR DAY, THEY ARE LIKE OUR OWN FAMILIES, I WILL MILL THEM SO MUCH, and putting in these stupid cooking shows LIKE THE CHEW, send them to food network, or the cooking show, we are being taken over by cooking, talk shows, reality shows, and there is nothing for us to watch any more, we have dozens and dozens of cooking shows why put them on our channels. PLEASE HELP US.
