Days of our Lives



Since it was first announced that Prospect Park's The OnLine Network was looking to once again revive "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," after they were canceled by ABC in 2011, it has been said that the company planned to take the shows into a sexier and edgier environment. In a recent teaser released by iTunes for its launch of the two soaps, Erika Slezak (Victoria Lord, "OLTL") is heard saying, "My agent said, 'What do you want in this contract?' I said, 'No nudity!" Fans shouldn't expect anything too racy on either show as Prospect Park co-founder Rich Frank admitted to Michael Maloney, Contributing Editor at Bauer Publishing for Soaps In Depth, in an interview with Variety. "We are going to be a little hotter and sexier," said Frank. He added, "That doesn’t mean we’ll be doing anything that’s offensive. We’re trying to be contemporary and have storylines that are relevant to people’s lives.”
As the popularity of soap operas fell in recent years (shown by decreased ratings and the cancelation of several sudsers, leaving only “The Young and the Restless,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Days of our Lives,” and “General Hospital” on the air), the Daytime Emmy Awards shifted to keep up: Gone were the beloved clips showcasing the nominated actors’ work and the majority of the show celebrating daytime dramas, in were more moments involving morning, talk, game and cooking shows. And rumor had it that the Emmys would become even less soap-centric as the years went on. But according to the Daytime Emmys’ senior executive director, David Michaels, though this year’s program has not yet been set, he’s sure the ceremony will keep soaps front and center, right where they belong! “The daytime fan base comes from all genres,” he tells Variety. “We have a Facebook page, and it’s not just the soap fans. The games and the talk shows have some pretty rabid fans, too. But there’s no fans like soap fans.”
