Reports surfaced last week that Sony TV, the production company behind NBC’s "Days of Our Lives" and CBS’s "The Young & the Restless," might be looking to poach talent from ABC’s two canceled soaps, "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." Now it turns out it might be something bigger than just a star grab–or at least that’s what some fans are hoping, reports SoapCentral.com.
Sony TV is rumored to be contemplating a pickup of "AMC" and "OLTL" with the thought of distributing the shows internationally. The rumor appears to have arisen from soap fans’ message boards and Twitter posts.
According to Dan J. Kroll of SoapCentral.com, "Neither ‘AMC’ nor ‘OLTL’ has been actively sold to overseas markets, where additional revenue is generated. Sony has successfully distributed ‘Days of our Lives’ and ‘The Young & the Restless’ abroad, and both soaps have recently been renewed."
