'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live' Will Return With New Format, Hire Fi-Core Writers


Words are, the soap operas will produce four half-hour episodes a week with limited advertising and the producers will use financial core writers.

Following report that Prospect Park is back on its plans to resurrect "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" online, details on the revival of the soap operas emerge. According to various sources, the plans are for each show to air four half-hour episodes a week with limited advertising.

A recap show will be streaming on Fridays, and the shows will air 42 weeks a year. No production date is set for both soap operas, but the filming is expected to take place in Stamford, Connecticut starting February.

Talks with actors and executive producers are still underway. "AMC" has secured longtime producer Ginger Smith to serve as an executive producer for the online revival, but "OLTL" is still looking for a new exec producer after Frank Valentini jumped to another soap on ABC, "General Hospital".

Moreover, both shows will likely use financial core writers since Prospect Park plans to forgo an agreement with WGA. The fi-core writers are scribes who have given up full membership during the last strike.
