Hot on the heels of the shocker via Deadline.com the other day that Prospect Park is apparently resuming their efforts to bring One Life to Live and All My Children back online, (something they were unable to do at the beginning of this year and thus had to pull out) comes word today via Showbiz411.com, that indeed Prospect Park has contacted All My Children star and soap icon, Susan Lucci to reprise her role of Erica Kane in the new online version that per the rumors they hope to debut in the early part of this year.
According to the item it reads, “Don’t get excited just yet. I have been told by a very good source that Prospect Park Productions has contacted Susan Lucci, aka Erica Kane, about a revival of All My Children online and maybe on cable. There have been reports in the last couple of days that Prospect Park, whose license with ABC on All My Children and One Life to Live, is trying to re-activate the much-missed soap operas. A friend of Lucci told me yesterday: ‘There have been some talks, but the word wasn’t supposed to get out yet.’ Hmmmm….”
The report also goes on to say that Robert S. Woods of One Life to Live, told Showbiz 411′s Roger Friedman, that, “He’d heard rumblings about Prospect Park’s renewed interest, but that he had not been contacted yet. ‘They may not know how to find me,’ said Woods, who’s been kicking back in upstate New York after 30 something years of service to “OLTL” as leading hero Bo Buchanan.”
So soapers, with Susan Lucci now on Devious Maids on Lifetime, and no official statement from Prospect Park yet on their renewed interest, do you think that La Lucci being back on an AMC cable or online version could be in her future? Would Susan take part in the revival after everything tanked last time? Weigh-in!
