    ‘s Jamey Giddens reported earlier today that an agreement between and the WGA (Writers Guild of America) had been made regarding online versions of “” and “.”

    “It all came down to residuals,” the website quoted an insider as saying. “Prospect Park hopes to air the episodes of ‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live’ on cable and in other countries, after their initial online airings. The WGA couldn’t afford to make a deal that didn’t include residuals for the writers.”

    A rep for the WGA has confirmed the news exclusively to Soap Opera Network. “We can confirm there is an agrement between the WGA and Prospect Park,” the rep said.

    With the WGA now joining SAG-AFTRA and the DGA, Prospect Park can move forward with production of “AMC” and “OLTL” sometime next month, as planned.

        Janice maybe CTV might carry the show and air it in CTV TWO and perhaps Rogers Will carry it on demand

      After abc cut our soaps, I vowed to never watch abc again. I have never seen The Chew, never will. I miss my stories so much. I feel very slighted by abc and I won’t even watch GH. It is the bottom line that motivates them and they will never get my viewership again.

    • CTwildheart

      Very, very happy to hear this! Now they can focus on the actors…

      Now that the representatives of Prospect Park have made a deal with the Writers Guild of America, it’s time that they’d gotten one, or two head writers for “All My Children”, just like they did for “One Life To Live”.:)

      I am elated but OLTL won’t get back the actors that went to GH until their contracts expire with GH IF they even want to leave at that point to do a show online(highly doubtful) However they will get them temporarily to help reboot the show.
