Sure it looks generic (and that’s just us being nice) and may not be the final product, but TradeMarkia.com has a posting on its website which shows that Prospect Park Networks, LLC has filed a trademark on the TOLN logo. There is also a posting for TOLN’s more widely known name – the OnLine Network.
Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman, “The Young and the Restless”) is engaged! The actress tweeted a picture of herself (see photo below) with her engagement ring with the caption “Said yes.”
With just a week to go before production is set to begin once more on “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” after more than a year since both series aired their last episodes on ABC, a number of behind the scenes personnel have been hired on to help spearhead the soaps into the digital world via Hulu and iTunes later this spring.
Just a short time ago, singer Fergie (real name Stacy Ferguson) announced on Twitter that she and husband Josh Duhamel (ex-Leo du Pres, “All My Children”) are expecting their first child. The multi Grammy Award winner tweeted an instagram photo of herself and Duhamel with the caption “Josh & Me & BABY makes three!!! #mylovelybabybump”
When we reported that Marlene McPherson (pictured right, with former “DAYS” co-head writer Darrell Ray Thomas) had been hired on as head writer of Prospect Park’s version of “All My children” back on January 23, it was unclear at the time as to whether she would be joined by a co-head writer. Soap Opera Network has since learned that it’ll be a “Days of our Lives” reunion of sorts for “AMC” as McPherson will be joined by Elizabeth Snyder, who was an Associate Head Writer at “DAYS” from 2011-2012.
On Monday, February 11, Paos Revolution, the team behind the upcoming “On Air” film starring “All My Children’s” Jordi Vilasuso (Dr. Griffin Castillo) and Alicia Minshew (ex-Kendall Hart) announced the launch of their official website. “The launch of paosrevolution.com is the first step of our plan to connect fans to the soap actors and insiders they love. Founding partners Jordi Vilasuso, Dock (Jeff Dockweiler) and John Homa are committed to creating an interactive actor friendly environment,” said a press release announcing the launch.
Prospect Park announced today that it will begin production on Monday, February 25 on both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live.” Principal production for both programs will take place in Stamford, Connecticut as expected. The company did not release additional casting notices, despite Cady McClain announcing she had signed on for the “AMC” reboot. The company expects to release additional casting notices in the coming days and weeks.
You can now add Cady McClain to the already confirmed list of stars returning to “All My Children.” The actress announced via her official website that she has been contacted by Prospect Park for their “AMC” reboot, which is set to premiere sometime this spring (likely April) via Hulu and iTunes. “I am very excited about the possibilities for the show in this medium and want to help give it every chance at success,” the actress said in a statement. “As you probably know by now, I am fascinated with all the many possibilities for creative expression that the Internet has to offer. I have a feeling the show will find many new opportunities for connecting with fans and I look forward to being a part of that as well,” she added.
Prospect Park’s much anticipated online revivals of long-running soaps “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” continue 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.
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.
