    As we reported yesterday, we likely have to thank our federal government for providing the funding necessary for Prospect Park to pick up "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," which were both canceled by ABC on Thursday, April 14. The announcement that ABC would be licensing the two iconic soaps to Prospect Park was made on Thursday, July 7, but according to sources the financial deal actually came together back in May, just in time for what is said to be the deadline period for the government to hand out grant money to companies looking to invest in New Media. We thought it was crazy too, but we checked and it is definitely true. What we know about this deal is that upon their completion on ABC, "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" will be migrated to an as-yet-to-be-named Hulu-esque internet video service that would allow both daily soap operas to continue their storytelling for millions of online users and "be delivered with the same quality and in the same format and length," as fans have come to expect for more than forty years, according to the joint press release issued from Disney/ABC and Prospect Park. Translation: One hour per day, five days a week, 52 weeks a year will remain within the realm of reality. What wasn't clear at the time was after both soaps complete their runs on ABC, they will also conclude on SOAPnet.
