All My Children
ABC and Prospect Park continue down the rabbit hole. According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC has countersued Prospect Park for breach of contract damages to the tune of $5 million dollars! This lawsuit comes on the heels of Prospect Park's Chapter 11 Bankruptcy news.
What do you think of the latest in the ABC/Prospect Park saga?
This is getting a bit ridiculous. Prospect Park has issued yet another press release regarding a change in scheduling/roll out for new episodes of All My Children and One Life to Live. Since, even with two journalism degrees and a right amount of horse sense, I still have trouble paraphrasing these logic-defying releases, I'm just gonna post the latest one verbatim:
Mondays are now soap days, with more choices, and more flexibility. Beginning next Monday, July 1, 2013, TOLN (The OnLine Network) will release ALL of the week’s highly-rated “All My Children” and “One Life To Live” episodes on Mondays via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes. The new schedule means that TOLN will run all episodes on Mondays, and not stagger runs of “All My Children” on Mondays/Wednesdays, “One Life to Live” on Tuesdays/Thursdays and “MORE AMC/OLTL” on Fridays. Now viewers will be able to choose to watch one episode each day or binge view some or all of that week’s shows at once starting each Monday. Together with the MORE shows, viewers can play or save up to six TOLN programs per week—all available on Mondays – providing even more flexibility to watch anytime, and anywhere. READ MORE
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.
Is Rob Wilson trying to take Ryan Seacrest's spot as the hardest working man in entertainment away from him? The Price is Right model—who was recently cast as Peter Cortlandt in the upcoming All My Children reboot—began the first of a two-episode stint as a Forrester Creations employee on CBS Daytime's The Bold and the Beautiful today.
CORRECTION: While Carole Shure is in fact working for Prospect Park on their All My Children reboot, she hasn't been named a senior producer. Reportedly, she is serving in a consulting capacity.
Executive producer Ginger Smith now has a second-in-command at Prospect Park's planned continuation of All My Children. According to sources, veteran daytime television producer Carole Shure has been tapped as a senior producer on the project. Shure's credits include stints at As The World Turns, Another World and All My Children.
