BREAKING NEWS: Prospect Park Officially Renews Plans to Revive All My Children and One Life to Live!
At the 11th hour, it appears Prospect Park is moving forward with plans to bring One Live to Live and All My Children back via the Internet. Deadline is reporting the production company has inked deals with SAG-AFTRA and the DGA, and hopes to begin production in the first quarter of 2013.
I'd been hearing that Prospect Park hoped to extend their rights to AMC and OLTL, which had been set to expire at the end of January 2013. However, there has also been interest among both ABC's Daytime and Primetime divisions in the brands of late.
Additionally, Prospect Park principles Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz have been inquiring with literary agents who represent soap opera writers about their clients availability, according to my moles. I can't lie; I was hoping AMC and OLTL's rebirth would be under the stewardship of Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati, but if PP can make it happen this time around, I will be more than supportive. Here we go again...
