One Life To Live And All My Children Shocker! Will NOT Continue On-Line!

| Filed under: TV NewsR.I.P.Sad SadBusiness Blitz


It's official!

One Life To Live and All My Children are done - FOR GOOD!

Prospect Park, the company that had signed a licensing deal with ABC to keep the canceled soaps alive on-line back in July, has announced today that it will not proceed with production after struggling to secure enough financial backing to launch their on-line TV network, as well as reach agreements with the talent and crew, as well as with Hollywood unions!

Sad to see that fans held on to the hope that their shows would continue, only to just lose it all again!

Check out the full statement…AFTER THE JUMP!

After five months of negotiations with various guilds, hundreds of presentations to potential financial and technology partners, and a hope that we could pioneer a new network for the future, it is with great disappointment that we are suspending our aspirations to revive “One Life to Live” and “All My Children” via online distribution. It is now becoming clear that mounting issues make our ability to meet our deadlines to get OLTL on the air in a reasonable time period following its January 13, 2012 ABC finale impossible.

We believed the timing was right to launch an Online TV Network anchored by these two iconic soap operas, but we always knew it would be an uphill battle to create something historical, and unfortunately we couldn’t ultimately secure the backing and clear all the hurdles in time. We believe we exhausted all reasonable options apparent to us, but despite enormous personal, as well as financial cost to ourselves, we failed to find a solution.

While we narrowed in on a financial infrastructure, the contractual demands of the guilds, which regulate our industry, coupled with the program’s inherent economic challenges ultimately led to this final decision. In the end, the constraints of the current marketplace, including the evolution and impact of new media on our industry simply proved too great a match for even our passion.

In our opinion, new models like this can only work with the cooperation of many people striving to make them happen, and we would like to thank and praise the numerous people who tried to help and showed us incredible support. We are extremely grateful to the fans and media who showed great support to us through this process, to ABC who did everything in their control to help, and we are especially grateful for the support and encouragement from many of the Soaps’ cast and crew themselves.

    This just plain SUCKS!

    This has got to be a(nother!) blow for the cast, crew and writers. I feel for them, and I really wish it had turned out differently!

    Can't they do a low $ subscription or something?

    I can't believe fans, cast, and crew have been let down yet again…permantly this time! I'm sure alot of cast members that agreed to stay on have declined other offers…this just really, really,frustrates and irritates me. I was looking forward to seeing these 2 soaps continue. The ABC replacement shows are absolutely ridiculous. So please…just leave GH alone!

    Honestly … would you people PLEASE get over it already? It's just a tv show … they get cancelled all the time. No one went on and on and on about it when classic shows were cancelled, ie: I Love Lucy, Seinfeld, etc. ALL tv shows eventually come to an end. Just be happy that you had a lot of years with your soap and move on with your life. Sheesh.

    Oh fucking well. What makes the cast and crew better than anyone else that's lost their job? Boo Hoo Hoo…. Get over it and get another job!

    Re: electromouth – That's Viki from OLTL Erika Slezek! She is really beautiful if you look at her other pictures. But, that pic of her do look different.
