While it is still unclear as to whether or not we are actually going to see both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” broadcasted online via the much-hyped (and recently-revived) deal with Prospect Park, there is one thing that we can say for certain at the moment: the latest attempts are getting a massive stamp of approval from the woman who started it all many years ago.
In a new statement on her official Facebook page, the shows’ creator in Agnes Nixon spoke out for the first time ever about the Prospect Park venture, and gave fans a new reason to be optimistic about the shows getting the opportunity to return with some new stories within the calendar year:
“We of the One Life to Live and All My Children families are thrilled to bring our beloved viewers new, ongoing stories from Llanview and Pine Valley. I’m overjoyed that so many actors you love have voiced their desire to bring their characters back to life,” Nixon continued. I’m especially grateful to Prospect Park for deploying the power of you, our fans, to enable this exciting transition to dramatic production for the Internet. It’s a historic moment, comparable to how life was changed when television took over for radio.
“We hope this wonderful opportunity will be embraced by all as our creative teams gear up to bring our beloved serials back to our daily lives.”
This sounds awfully a lot like the shows are officially a go, right? Well, Prospect Park has really yet to confirm anything, but we have a feeling that the largely-quiet Nixon would not have said anything at all had she felt that there was little chance that we could see either soap back on the air.
Now that Nixon has spoken out, are you starting to actually get excited about these shows again? If you want to see who from “All My Children” is already planning to return to the show, you can do so over at the link here.
