“All My Children” and “One Life to Live” fans, be ready to take a deep sigh of relief: we finally know when your beloved shows are going to be back on the air following over a year of speculation and fears that it would never happen. While there are still dreams about a television broadcast happening at some point, for the time being these daily, 30-minute installments are going to be available via TOLN (otherwise known as Prospect Park’s The Online Network) on Hulu, Hulu Plus, and iTunes beginning on Monday, April 29. Filming has already began for both series, and there are a heap of returning cast members to both programs.
Speaking in a statement, Prospect Park’s Partners Jeff Kwatinetz and Rich Frank had the following to say:
“We thank the fans whose tenaciousness to see these shows return made this historical moment possible. We are determined to repay their support by delivering new and creatively groundbreaking episodes that both the fans, as well as legions of new viewers, will love. These viewers will absolutely embrace the flexibility HULU and iTunes provide to watch their shows anywhere, anytime. The response and camaraderie of our cast and crew has been inspiring as we have all banded together to succeed in our mission; unencumbered by the creative constraints of traditional broadcast television, to deliver storylines, style and characters that are stronger, with more dimension than ever. Now with our launch date set in stone, we are ready to lead this historic return. To the fans we proclaim, your support counts now more than ever.”
“I am so pleased that our dream of bringing these two series back to life is coming to fruition. I am grateful to Prospect Park for their unwavering commitment to this project and to the amazingly talented casts of All My Childre nand One Life to Live – their devotion to these franchises has made this moment possible. And to the fans – well, we wouldn’t be here without you.”
