Prospect Park drops AMC and OLTL Web Series
Production company, Prospect Park, will not move forward with the web versions of All My Children or One Life To Live. "After five months of negotiations with various guilds, hundreds of presentations to potential financial and technology partners, and a hope that we could pioneer a new network for the future, it is with great disappointment that we are suspending our aspirations to revive 'One Life to Live' and 'All My Children' via online distribution," says reps for Prospect Park.
ABC, canceled the two soaps last April. The replacement for All My Children, The Chew, which I affectionately refer to as "the shew", continues with low ratings, but is a less expensive show to produce according to reports.
It's a shame that Fox, doesn't pick up these soaps as they have the perfect audience for such a venture and no original daytime programs. Just how many judge shows do we really need? Oprah!!!! You should rethink your decision to not pick up the legendary Soaps for OWN! The soaps have a built in audience and your network's ratings are tanking, sounds like a perfect solution. I'm sure she reads this blog, don't yall think?
