'One Life to Live,' 'All My Children' to revive online, report says
Looks as though patience and deep fan love have finally paid off: The partners of an online venture to revive the two late/lamented ABC soaps, “One Life to Live” and “All My Children,” say they finally have the necessary support to relaunch them and that production will begin next month.
According to a letter posted on Deadline, both principals behind Prospect Park, Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz, said they “are pleased to confirm that Prospect Park is reviving the beloved soap operas, 'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live' as the anchor programs on The Online Network (TOLN)." Also this: Agnes Nixon, the doyenne of the soap world, has apparently signed on in a consultant capacity too.
As readers may recall, deals to relaunch both shows had fallen apart last year when PP couldn't work out various union agreements. One assumes details on casting are coming shortly, as well as some sort of backgrounder on “The Online Network.”
