top comment by Maggie Christian

i am so thrilled that amc and oltl shall go on. when i saw the headline and began reading the article i screamed for my partner to rush back into the living room from making dinner, i told her it was important. that i had some exciting news for her. when she heard the news she was almost as excited as i was. i posted the article on facebook and wrote a blog to let as many people know the good news. i am fortunate to have pc capability on my tv and our family will find a roku device which are reasonably priced to connect the internet to our tv. i assume it is the same device that is used to stream netflix. can’t wait to hear more specifics about the televising schedule. when the change over will start. will it continue directly online once it stops broadcasting on tv? lots of question. thank you Prospect Park for taking on this wonderful project. i love these two soaps and i only watch three now. the other being y & r. this is truly amazing, now how to bring gigi back or at least the actress, maybe a twin or doppelganger out there somewhere.

It’s Official: ‘All My Children’ & ‘One Life to Live’ Heading Online
by Chris Harnick, posted Jul 7th 2011 3:05PM

SAVED TO WATCH ONLINE for a very long time

ALL IS WELL IN LLANVIEW BUT THEY KILLED GIGI she's will have to haunt the soap

Susan Lucci, ‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live’ will continue beyond their final ABC airdates, as previously reported. The soaps are heading online with a new multi-year and multi-platform deal with Prospect Park.

“‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live’ are iconic pieces of television history that captivated millions of fans since their beginning over 40 years ago,” ABC’s head of daytime Brian Frons said in a statement. “Each of the shows have made an indelible mark on our culture’s history and informed our consciousness in their own way. We are so glad Prospect Park has assumed the mantel for these shows and that they will continue for the fans.”

Under the new deal, the two soaps will live online and will be accessible via any Internet-enabled device. They’ll be the same length and format, and, according to the press release, the same quality.

“We are privileged to continue the legacy of two of the greatest programs to air on daytime television, and are committed to delivering the story lines, characters and quality that audiences have come to love for over 40 years,” said Rich Frank and and Jeff Kwatinetz of Prospect Park. “‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live’ are television icons, and we are looking forward to providing anytime, anywhere viewing to their loyal community of millions.”

“Technology changes the way the public can and will view television shows,” the statement continued. “Now that there are so many devices available in addition to television sets, viewers are taking advantage of watching shows wherever they are and on any number of devices. The driving force in making the switch and attracting new audiences is to have outstanding programs that people want to watch. We believe that by continuing to produce the shows in their current hour format and with the same quality, viewers will follow the show to our new, online network.”

‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live’ creator Agnes Nixon said she was happy ABC found a home for her two soaps and she’s excited for the future with Prospect Park.

“It takes a lot of living to make a soap opera a serial, and the wonderful teams on both shows have done just that,” Nixon said in a statement. “Together, we are a big family that keeps going, and I’m looking forward to working alongside these wonderful people as we ensure that the shows will continue with all the love and excitement we’ve always had. I also am so happy for our loyal fans, whom we love so much, and who have been so supportive over the last 40 plus years.”

Since its debut 41 years ago, ‘All My Children’ has helped launch careers of many Hollywood starlets including Melissa Leo, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Amanda Seyfried. The soap’s most recognizable face, Susan Lucci, is the only original cast member still on the series.

‘One Life to Live’ debuted as a half-hour show in 1968 before transforming into a full-fledged hour-long soap 10 years later. Erica Slezak, who plays Viki Lord Banks on the series, is the longest-running cast member, having begun in 1971. Hollywood players including Tommy Lee Jones, Dixie Carter, Judith Light, Marcia Cross and Ryan Phillippe are a few of the many famous faces who got their start on the series.

ABC is replacing ‘All My Children’ with ‘The Chew’ starting late September. The food and lifestyle program comes from veteran Food Network producer Gordon Elliot (‘Paula Deen’s Home Cooking,’ ‘Down Home With the Neelys’) and will focus on every aspect of food.

The one-hour series will be hosted by Mario Batali, ‘What Not to Wear’ stylist Clinton Kelly, ‘Top Chef’ veteran Carla Hall, ‘Iron Chef America’ star Michael Symon and nutrition expert Daphne Oz.

When ‘One Life to Live’ leaves ABC in January, it’ll be replaced by ‘The Revolution,’ a new healthy living/weight-loss series. Tim Gunn headlines the series with ‘American Idol’ contestant Kimberly Locke and fitness trainer Harley Pasternak alongside. The three regulars will be joined contributors to help transform people’s lives.

Look for more details on the future of ‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live’ soon.
