Okay, okay, I will be the first to admit it. I was more than a little cynical when I first learned Prospect Park was making a second stab at bringing back All My Children and One Life to Live. There, are you happy?
With only a matter of days left before the soaps return on April 29, I have to say, I am hella impressed with what I'm seeing so far! Today, TOLN revealed a trailer video for the new season of All My Children. Although I will argue anyone down that it was only my pollen allergies, a couple of tears were a' shed.
My DARLING, BIANCA (Eden Riegel)!!!!! ANGIE (Debbi Morgan)!!! DIXIE (Cady McClain)!!! PETEY (Rob Wilson)!!! PETEY (Rob Wilson)!!! Did I mention, PETEY (Rob Wilson)??? Watch the video after the jump.
TOLN isn’t leaving anything to chance with its new promo telling All My Children fans to get ready for the soap's return on April 29. The network has released a promo that heavily features classic scenes of beloved characters, such as Bianca (Eden Riegel), Angie (Debbi Morgan), Jesse (Darnell Williams), Zach (Thorsten Kaye), Brooke (Julia Barr), Adam (David Canary), Dixie (Cady McClain), Joe (Ray MacDonnell), Tad (Michel E. Knight), Myrtle (Eileen Herlie) and the dastardly David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry).
I couldn’t help but choke up rewatching Bianca’s coming out to Erica (Susan Lucci). The first nine minutes are a wonderful reminder of All My Children’s past, while the last minute gives viewers a taste of what’s to come. Prospect Park's All My Children premieres on iTunes and Hulu on April 29. Watch the promo after the jump! READ MORE
Rebooting legendary soaps like All My Children and One Life to Live is a mammoth undertaking for Prospect Park. TV Guide caught up with AMC’s Thorsten Kaye (Zach) who asked fans to bear with them as the shows evolve.
"It's been terrific getting back to work but we're definitely experiencing some growing pains. This is a huge undertaking. ABC did it for 40 years. For a company that's new to soaps like Prospect Park, it's a whole other ball game. We ask the fans to bear with us. It will take a bit of time to get it right but I do believe we can!"
Entertainment Tonight was on hand for All My Children and One Life to Live’s photo shoot. The newsmagazine’s cameras caught up with vets Erika Slezak, David Canary, Kassie DePaiva, Debbi Morgan, Darnell Williams, Thorsten Kaye and previewed the hot young stars who will be rounding out the cast.
