As the old saying goes, a happy employee is a productive employee. And that must be a mantra Prospect Park believes in. According to the actors who have signed on to the serial dramas, “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” the production company — headed by Jeff Kwatinetz and Richard Frank — has batted a thousand when it comes to being respectfully in charge. And the end result, as the performers preview, is pure magic.
Taboo as the topic of sex might be, it’s one subject that never fails to demand rapt attention. Sex sells, and daytime dramas have always known it; the term “love in the afternoon” didn’t spring from nothing! But just how much more provocative will TOLN’s online soaps, “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” be now that they’re no longer under strict network regulations? Soap Opera Network sat down with some of the show’s stars, all of whom were none too shy to open up and reveal the naked truth about the new love in the afternoon!
“All My Children” makes its online debut this spring, and Prospect Park is pulling out all of the stops to make sure it’s a success. Several actors have tweeted that the new writing for the show is outstanding, and fans were happy to hear that some of their beloved actors — Eden Riegel (Bianca Montgomery), Alicia Minshew (Kendall Hart Slater) and Cady McClain (Dixie Cooney) — were headed back to the show.

Could we also be privy to seeing Pine Valley’s other sexy doc, Griffin, in the nude? “I don’t know!” tweets portrayer Jordi Vilasuso. “I’ve heard things, but I haven’t been asked for the Full Monty.”

“All My Children’s” Pine Valley has been a bit of ghost town since the show left the air back in 2011, but not any more: Monday, February 25 marked the first day that past and new actors alike stepped into TOLN’s version of the legendary soap’s fictional town in Stamford, Connecticut — and judging by actor tweets, it seems the first week of taping is going well!
Earlier today, Prospect Park announced that actress Julia Barr will reprise her role of Brooke English on TOLN's "All My Children," which resumes production on Monday, February 25. Barr, who last appeared during the finale episode of the soap operas ABC run in September 2011, has signed on as a series regular, a Prospect Park representative tells Soap Opera Network.
As previously reported, "All My Children" has named Marlene McPherson and Elizabeth Snyder as co-head writers. What's so significant about their hiring is that this marks the first time since 2003 that a daytime soap opera has had two females leading its writing team. The last time was with Ellen Weston and Carolyn Culliton co-head writing CBS' "Guiding Light." Prior to that was in 2002, when Millee Taggert and Culliton also co-head wrote for "GL."
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.
Last summer I was lucky enough to be included as an interviewee in the new soap opera themed documentary appropriately titled "Soap Life," which follows the life, and possible death, of daytime soap operas. I can't believe I forgot all about it and didn't realize it until this morning!
