AFTRA and the WGA Respond to Prospect Park’s Decision to Suspend Plans for ‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live’

After rumblings for the last two weeks and a shocking report by Deadline Hollywood earlier today, Prospect Park officially pulled the plug on plans for producing online versions of ABC's "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." Of the key issues, Prospect Park cited its inability to come to terms with the unions including those representing the actors (AFTRA) and the writers (WGA). Shortly afterward, the various unions began issuing statements in response to the production companies decision.

Soap fans across the web aren't sure what to believe anymore as there are reports that Prospect Park is now without enough funding to support both "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" on its Online Network (TOLN), but considering both soaps were just a small part of the overall planning behind the network does that now mean that the Online Network itself is dead as well?

In a new Facebook posting that went up just a short time ago, actress Susan Lucci has taken to the social networking service to clear the air regarding the status of "All My Children" and its move to the internet and plans for her inclusion in the online version of the long running ABC soap.

Sometimes you can't be two places at once. Thankfully, there are people willing to lend a hand. Professional photographer and sometimes writer Thomas Montalto was on hand for the annual Absolute Eden Riegel fan event last month and helped Soap Opera Network cover the event with pictures (see below) and even an interview. Unfortunately, just after this interview took place we would learn that Riegel was being let go from her contract role as Heather Stevens on "The Young and the Restless" before the actress was even told! Twitter broke the story to the actress before she was told by her bosses. In light of the actress completing filming at the CBS soap on Thursday, September 29, Soap Opera Network presents to you one of Riegel's last interviews before she marks her grand exit from Genoa City in the coming weeks.
