Two Canceled Soap Operas Close In on Relaunch After Coming to Terms With Actors Guild THR
After hitting a snag in its attempt to revive two canceled ABC soap operas last year, the production company behind the effort appears to have the project back on track.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Prospect Park has reached an agreement with SAG-AFTRA that could mean production will launch as soon as January on "All My Children" and "One Life to Live."
Prospect Park, which is also the production company behind FX’s “Wilfred” and USA’s “Royal Pains,” is trying to revive the soaps as online programs. The company is also in talks with the DGA and the WGA, the story adds.
Prospect Park’s initial plans to relaunch the series online fell through a little more than a year ago, in November 2011.
Actors from both soaps are in discussions to return for the relaunch, the story notes. Prospect Park declined to comment.
