You’ve already heard from Debbi Morgan and Cady McClain, but what about the other stars of “All My Children” who’ve recently learned that Prospect Park will not be forging ahead with a second season of the supposed “anytime” soap opera. Putting together all the tweets (at the time of this posting), Soap Opera Network has compiled a list of what some of the actors are saying about the demise of “AMC” 2.0 on social media.
Eric Nelsen (AJ Chandler) tweeted earlier today, “Thank you for all the love and support re #AMC. We’d be nothing without u guys so for that reason I am grateful. This is only the beginning.” His tweet was retweeted by Denyse Tontz (Miranda Montgomery), who has yet to officially comment herself.
“All My Children” made headlines with the oh, so steamy sex scene between Pete Cortlandt (Robert Scott Wilson) and Colby Chandler (Brooke Newton) last week, but can they replicate it this week when Cassandra Foster (Sal Stowers) is literally needing revival by the town punching bag, David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry), or when JR (Ryan Bittle) does something special for Cara (Lindsay Hartley)? You’ll have to tune into “AMC” during the weeks of June 17 and June 24 to find out, but Soap Opera Network has your first look at what’s ahead in those coming weeks!
Several stars are set to shine at the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards, some of which will also be presenting the golden statues on stage during the big night. But just who are the lucky personalities that will be handing the Outstanding Young Actor winner and the Outstanding Young Actress winner their coveted awards? Read on to find out!
As the fourth week of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” comes to a close, and with the recent reduction in weekly episodes of both “AMC” and “OLTL” now at just two originals, The OnLine Network has also reduced their Friday “MORE” series, which now combines the two soaps into one Friday recap/interview episode.
In today’s episode, “Soaps, sex and stars behind the scenes of ‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live!’ Robert S. Woods (Bo Buchanan, “OLTL”) has a “first.” Lindsay Hartley (Cara Castillo, “AMC”) on getting down and dirty on camera! Glamor in Pine Valley’s closets and exclusive first looks at next week!”
A character proclaims, “Pine Valley lost a part of its soul that night, but today the sun shines bright.” That day in particular is Monday, April 29, when “All My Children” premieres with all new episodes via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes with Pine Valley’s citizens having picked things up five years after that traumatic night Adam Chandler (David Canary) and Brooke English (Julia Barr) celebrated their engagement and a shot went off. Fans will quickly be able to jump right back into the soap where “cute, sexy, action and adventure, romance and sex” may be a simple way to summarize the storytelling on any given daytime soap, but on “AMC” things are just all the better.
The OnLine Network (TOLN) has confirmed the following stars who have joined the cast of “All My Children.”
As previously reported, “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” began production on Monday, February 25 in Stamford, CT for new episodes scheduled to release later this spring on Hulu and iTunes. Today, The OnLine Network (TOLN) announced the following contract cast for the reboot of “AMC”:
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 opera’s ABC run in September 2011, has signed on as a series regular, a Prospect Park representative tells Soap Opera Network. The actress had previously appeared on the soap in a recurring capacity after being dropped from contract status in December 2006.
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 first announced plans to move “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” to the web back in July 2011 after striking a license holding deal with Disney/ABC Domestic Television. Sadly, plans fell through by November 2011 after apparent financing and union discussions fell through. Since that dreadful time period, Prospect Park has resumed work on returning the soaps to your [computer] screens, only this time with financing said to be in place and union deals already signed with the DGA (directors), SAG-AFTRA (actors) and the WGA (writers). With more than a year gone by since “One Life to Live” last aired, we thought it would be a great opportunity to see which stars have (so far) signed on to return to “AMC” and “OLTL” compared to the list circling back in 2011.
Prospect Park today announced an initial listing of writers, producers and cast members who have signed on for the online reboots of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live.” The company has formally announced Susie Bedsow Horgan and Thom Racina as head writers of “OLTL.” Thorsten Kaye and Jill Larson bring the “AMC” cast count to 7 stars signed. “OLTL” adds Erika Slezak, Tuc Watkins, Kassie DePaiva, Florencia Lozano, Melissa Archer, Hillary B. Smith, Kelley Missal, Josh Kelly and Andrew Trischitta, who join previously signed Robert S. Woods, Robin Strasser and Jerry verDorn. With the exception of Strasser, Woods, and Smith, Prospect Park has secured most of the actors signed on during the first round of plans to reboot the soaps back in 2011.
