Just weeks before the Prospect Park deal to pick up the production and distribution rights of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" from the Disney/ABC Television group was announced, ABC revealed that they had decided to move "One Life" head writer Ron Carlivati to "General Hospital" as a script writer once production wrapped on the soap in November. Is that still the case two months later?
As previously reported, the cast of "All My Children" have received offers from Prospect Park to return to the series upon re-launch in January 2012, nearly four months after the series completes its ABC run. According to Deadline Hollywood's Nellie Andreeva, Prospect Park is offering Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) virtually the same salary she's currently receiving from ABC.
On Monday, September 26, "Days of our Lives" introduces a new era of drama when new co-head writers Marlene McPherson and Darrell Ray Thomas take over. On that day, citizens of Salem gather together for the launch of the new Horton Town Square that will house restaurants, boutiques and an even a book store.
"All My Children's" Walt Willey (Jackson Montgomery) was on today's edition of WGN Chicago's "Midday Fix" and while the actor was there to promote his stand-up act and meet and greets while he was in town, one topic that was up for discussion happened to be about Prospect Park and what its plans are with "AMC" and in particular the actors.
When Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier) and Natalie (Melissa Archer) arrive in Kentucky at the Spotted Pony Strip Club later this week, fans may recognize the face of the man tending bar behind the counter. A.C. Weary, the husband of Kim Zimmer, who returned to the role of Echo Di Savoy last October after a nearly thirty year absence from the show, has been cast in the recurring role of Theo, the club's manager. But don't expect husband and wife to be sharing screen time anytime soon, however.
