ABC developing prime-time 'All My Children' reboot
Kelly Ripa and her husband, Mark Consuelos, are getting back to their soap opera roots. The couple, whose television breaks happened on ABC's "All My Children," are attached to executive produce a prime-time version of the venerable daytime serial for the network, Variety reports.
The new series is tentatively titled "Pine Valley," named for the fictional Philadelphia suburb where the original soap took place. The plot will revolve around a reporter who plans to expose the town's many secrets and scandals only to become embroiled in a feud between the Kane and Santos families.
Ripa, 50, portrayed party girl Hayley Vaughan on the show from 1990 to 2002. Consuelos, 49, played Mateo Santos, Hayley's close friend and later love interest, from 1995 to 2001. Both returned to "All My Children" for a few episodes in 2010 to celebrate the show's 40th anniversary.
