As expected, ABC has issued an official statement on the matter of Starr Manning, Todd Manning and John McBain, characters currently being seen on the network's "General Hospital," as it pertains to the license of the characters originally from the soon to be rebooted "One Life to Live."
According to a report by Daytime Confidential, ABC's "General Hospital" will be temporarily losing the characters of Starr Manning, Todd Manning and John McBain as Prospect Park has exercised its right to utilize the characters for its online reboot from the agreement the production company signed with the Disney/ABC Domestic Television Group, part of the Walt Disney Company, back in July 2011.
On Saturday, July 23, 2011, "General Hospital" held its annual fan club weekend event at the Sportmen's Lodge Event Center. Incidentally, in the year that followed many were left wondering if the 2012 event would ever come to be amidst all the drama and rumors surrounding the cancellation, reincarnation (through the Disney/ABC Television Group/Prospect Park Productions deal that wasn't) and ultimate demise of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" and the possible effect it would have on "GH" itself. On July 21, 2012, "GH" did indeed holds its annual fan event - again at the Sportsmen's Lodge Event Center - with a renewed focus and much hope for the future.
Four stars of "One Life To Live" will be joining the cast of joining "General Hospital."
A compilation of Twitter and Facebook posts from the cast of "One Life to Live" following word that Prospect Park was dropping plans to resurrect the show online only five days after the soap wrapped production on its ABC run.
As we previously reported, "One Life to Live" was forced to replace Brandon Buddy with Van Hughes in the role of Cole Thornhart just one day after Buddy reprised the character for an upcoming storyline with ex-girlfriend Starr Manning (Kristen Alderson). Now the actor has taken to Twitter to apologize to fans for the sudden turn of events.
Developing at Soap Opera Network... a number of actors are privately and publicly confirming they will not be joining "One Life to Live" when it goes online via Prospect Park's Online Network.
