( — Last week rumors began circulating that ABC Daytime was looking to move their daytime soap “All My Children” to the West Coast in an effort to avoid cancellation. Unfortunately, a network spokeswoman opted to lie to the industry in an effort to break the news to the dramas cast and crew “first.” The cast learned they’d have to make the difficult choice of whether to head out West to Los Angeles,California or lose their jobs on Tuesday, August 4.

“All My Children” airs Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Check local listings.
