Prospect Park’s much anticipated online revival of long-running soaps “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” continues to inch closer to reality as both shows are scheduled to go into production in the coming weeks ahead of their excepted launch dates on Hulu (and iTunes) sometime in April.
Millions of viewers were shocked when the power went out during tonights Super Bowl XLVII (or Super Bowl 47 for those not up-to-date with their Roman numerals) game between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. CBS issued a statement on the matter, but has sadly remained mum on its decision to ignore viewers of CBS Daytime programming, which remains #1 in its daypart via “The Young and the Restless,” “The Price is Right,” “Let’s Make a Deal,” “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Talk.”
A year after canceling “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” and a year that saw millions of dissatisfied viewers tuning out of a new daytime “Revolution,” Advertiser Perceptions has named ABC Daytime #1 in sales knowledge and customer service for calendar year 2012, reports AdAge.com. The website says that the network as a whole ranked first in advertiser satisfaction in the category of broadcast television. The network was the highest-rated overall media company in 2011, but has now been unseated by Google during the most recent update. Meredith Corp., publisher of Ladies’ Home Journal magazine, won the coveted position in 2010.
It was on Friday, January 25, when Soap Opera Network first reported that Prospect Park’s “All My Children” was looking to recast the role of Cassandra Foster, the adopted daughter of Angela Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), who the good doctor found abandoned in a dumpster during her run on ABC’s “The City” back in the mid-1990′s. The character returned as an 18 year-old seeking comfort from mommy dearest in 2008 as played by actress YaYa DaCosta. Since then, the production company has now officially issued a casting call for the role. According to the casting call, the role is for an African-American in her early-mid 20′s, “gorgeous with an air of sophistication.” The character spent the majority of her time in Paris, France, which has helped her become “worldly, independent and a force to be reckoned with.” The role is contract.
