For those who have been guessing and weighing in on just what will be the style of the new half hour format of the revised One Life to Live and All My Children soaps when they launch online, received some news today via Thom Racina, (OLTL’s new co-head writer) who Soap Opera Uncensored touched base with on his new gig.
According to the online zine, Racina says it will not be as had been bantered about telenovela style.
SOU stated, “Reports that AMC and One Life would adopt a telenovela format once it hits online are untrue, Llanview co-head writer Thom Racina tells me.”
In addition, SOU states to look for an edgier updated version of One Life and AMC including the music! And in a behind-the-scenes move, Prospect Park’s head of production for the reboots, Foz McDermott, had been let-go and is no longer part of the online ventures.
So what do you think soapers of the news of the format of the new OLTL and AMC? Seems like it will be made more progressive, but remain in tact with its ongoing continuing serial format that daytime fans are used to, instead of ending stories the way a telenovela does.
