This is for my father, who has been a die-hard fan of “All My Children” since the early 1970s, and who was devastated when ABC announced several months ago that the adventures of Erica Kane and the town of Pine Valley would soon come to an end:
“All My Children” and “One Life to Live” will find new life on the Internet, ABC announced Thursday.
The network has licensed the canceled soap operas in a multi-year deal allowing their stories to continue beyond their imminent broadcast termination.
Prospect Park will produce and deliver the soaps via online formats and other “emerging platforms,” including Internet-enabled television sets, according to the announcement. Under the terms of the arrangement, the programs will continue to be delivered with “the same quality and in the same format and length.”
No other information was released, including when either show might resume under the agreement or whether their current actors would be retained.
