37 January 7th, 2013 Prospect Park To Confirm All My Children & One Life To Live Revival Plans!

Fans have been eagerly awaiting to hear news directly from Prospect Park on their proposed plans on bringing All My Children and One Life to Live back and online!  Word this morning out of Deadline.com is that the confirmation and official statement may be coming as early as later today!

According to Deadline.com, “The company has kept quiet on the subject as it has continued to work on guild agreements, financing and distribution.”

In addition, it looks like Prospect Park did indeed reach out to the WGA (Writers Guild of America) a couple of weeks ago and is awaiting a response.  This is a key element to what most have voiced concerned about …  the writing of the stories of Llanview and Pine Valley.   As has been reported, filming is eyed to begin next month in Stamford, CT, with the producers already signing executive producers and actors as soap fans have noted in the last few weeks.

We will have more on this developing story! Stay tuned.

Will you feel more rest-assured that OLTL and AMC will make it online once you hear from Prospect Park?  Let us know!

    I do believe that once they announce it..and more actors sign up..we all will feel a lot better about AMC /OLTL.. I cannot wait to see what exactly they do with the characters for both shows..it’s got to be a huge task to re-design sets etc. Cannot wait to see them all again..30 minutes a day will have to do..it’s much better than NOTHING at all.

    The soap are 30 minutes in time, what fills the hour are the commercials..
    I watch the soaps in their entirety on-line and with the on-line commercials they run about 36 minutes..

    30 Minute show means about 25 minutes or so of show now, as they will have limited commercials. If they make them to fit a TV slot of 30 minutes the shows will run about 21 minutes.

    I’m with you, Troy. PP released a statement in 2011 and I remember how that turned out. I need more convincing, too!

    Before I get labelled as a hater, I’ve been one of those working on getting AMC and OLTL back since Black Thursday-so I’ve been through the PP rollercoaster before. I’m sorry, gang-until they give us more details, this is all just talk

    TRW replied

    They have the financing secured this time. It’s happening.

    This could be the biggest day for the soap opera genre in over a decade.

    When its announced officially by PP that these two shows are coming back man people are going to be so relieved.

    The fact that DAYS is coming back to NBC, really does mean the predictions were right on 2013 being the revival year for the soaps to comeback from the dead.

    My remaining question will be what television network will they air on, I don’t expect PP to announce a television home today yet that’ll probably come after they start shooting the show. If it returns to ABC they’ll likely announce that in April.

    Hi Michael, thank you for keeping us updated. I am one of the wait until I see it skeptics. I would love for it to happen and will be forever grateful to PP if they actually reboot and air our beloved soaps, until I see them I can’t get excited. However I will feel a lot better if PP does make a formal statement. I will be estatic if they come back, I am a proud soap fan of 36 years, devoted to ABC soaps

    Have they given any indication of what these shows will be? I’m guessing that there isn’t enough money for one hour, five day a week 52 week a year show. What can we expect?

    TRW replied

    This has been reported last week.

    30 minute shows, 4 days a week with Friday recap shows, something like 42 weeks a year.

    Troy Turner replied

    Nothing official, as per usual, but this is what I’ve been hearing. There are two possibilities-4 days a week, 30 min-with a week in review on Friday, or telenovela-style 5-week arcs alternating between the two. But, then again, this could be all just talk
