More details are continuing to leak out concerning Prospect Park’s move to reintroduce All My Children and One Life to Live online after their stalled attempt at the end of 2011.

According to a report from Daytime Confidential today, it appears that Ginger Smith has been named the new executive producer of the online version of AMC!

Smith had been a production team member for 20 years on All My Children starting her career as production intern and then moved to Production Coordinator.  Ginger eventually landed the spot as Coordinating Producer for the series and later was promoted to Supervising Producer from 1999-2004.  From 2004-10 Smith was a producer for the series, and even wrote for the characters of Pine Valley in 2008!

So with the news comes the question, who is going to helm One Life to Live?  More on that as this story develops!

In the meantime, what do you think of Smith as the showrunner for Pine Valley? Let us know your thoughts!

    LB or CL would be a great choice for HW (DOOL isn’t properly utilizing LB’s talent). Unfortunately, unless they can come to terms with the Writers’ Guild, PP will only be using Fi-Core scribes.

    ABC should wake up and grab a ratings bonanza by resuscitating One Life and All My Kids. The are sitting on piles of advertising dollars- tons of fans would tune into a qualitatively produced new version of both shows on network TV. Seriously- don’t they realize that their audience is sleeping through The Chew/Kaite??

    They would be very wise as well, no matter whom they hire as head writer, to enlist Agnes Nixon as a consultant–and LISTEN to her. ABC so often didn’t in the show’s last decade, much to the show’s detriment.

    I also hope that Prospect Park understands what ABC seems not to have until the last year or so: that the headwriter matters, and that good writing matters, and that viewers care about the writing and won’t watch just because we like the characters/actors.

    Lorraine Broderick is part of the writing staff at DOOL. Perhaps they will allow her to leave and return to AMC.

    Glad to hear. I have missed both AMC and OLTL. Agnes Nixon keeps us on the edge of our chairs, a great writer
