Soap Opera News: Breaking! “All My Children” Prime Time Revival

For decades, ABC Network was the home for three major Soap Operas that became household names in America. Now, ABC is down to one daytime drama, General Hospital. On September 2nd, 2013, ABC’s All My Children came to an end after One Life To Live left the air on January 13th, 2012.

Major news has just been announced regarding the revival of the iconic Daytime Drama, All My Children. Soap opera news reports a new development in the works that will have General Hospital, All My Children, and One Life To Live fans rejoicing. The soap opera genre has been surviving off of one lasting show, as GH is in its 57th on air.

All My Children’s Kelly Ripa and husband, Mark Consuelos are developing a prime time version of the drama and will be titled after the infamous town, “Pine Valley.” Celebrity news reports this show is in the early stages of development.

After winning back the rights to the characters names from Prospect Studios, ABC now owns the rights to both AMC as well as OLTL. Rumors of their revival have bounced around throughout the last 7 years, and some projects were developed for web series audience, however, nothing really took off.

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos head up production for this new prime time project, but there is no word on whether or not they will appear as actors in the new series. In the 1990s, Ripa and Consuelos had large roles on AMC as Hayley Vaughan and Mateo Santos.

This is extremely exciting news for AMC and soap opera fans in general. When AMC and OLTL came to an end, many fans had a difficult time adjusting to life without this staple as part of their day. Now we have the chance to experience all the drama and excitement again!

‘Days of Our Lives’ on Indefinite Hiatus; What This Means for ‘General Hospital’

DAYS OF OUR LIVES — Pictured: “Days of our Lives” color logo — NBC Photo

Yesterday, November 12th, Soap Opera Breaking News took the soap fandom by storm as the biggest announcement in recent years regarding the soap world was published. It has been confirmed that the entire cast of NBC‘s Days of Our Lives has been released from their contracts.

So you’re probably wondering, what does this mean? Well, it means that all the actors, and the entire staff (lighting, music, etc.) are free to go out and seek new work. They are no longer bound to their contracts, as now DOOL is on indefinite hiatus.

The show is taped about 8 months in advance and it has been reported, there are enough episodes to take the soap opera through Summer. Hopefully by then, the network and show executives will have come up with a solution to keep the nation’s longest running soap opera in production. Lower salaries for the cast has been mentioned as a requirement if the soap does return.

What does this mean for ABC‘s General Hospital? General Hospital is ABC‘s only surviving Daytime Drama after the cancellation of All My Children (ended 2013) and One Life to Live (ended 2012).

Thankfully, DOOL is on an entirely different television network than that of GH, which is on ABC. If it is a cost issue within the network, it doesn’t have anything to do with the status of ABC‘s, General Hospital. There is always a chance the network could follow suit and try something like this to cut costs. There has been no word of this happening to General Hospital over at ABC.

General Hospital Blog will keep fans updated on the status of DOOL. Stay tuned to General Hospital! We cannot lose our show!

General Hospital Rumor: Is Michael Easton OUT at GH?

McbainThe latest casting buzz following the news of GH Head Writer, Ron Carlivati being let go, is that Michael Easton may be on his way out. Michael Easton joined the cast of General Hospital after One Life to Live was cancelled. Easton went on to continue playing the role of John McBain until ABC had some legal issues with using the names from the axed soap. The GH writers were forced to drop the OLTL names, and wrote Michael Easton as Dr. Silas Clay.

Rumor has it that Michael is on his way out, but nothing has yet been confirmed. Daytime Confidential has also reported of this rumor, apparently, this type of news travels quickly.

It seems as though there has been much potential for Silas. First with Sam (Kelly Monaco), then with Nina (Michelle Stafford), and also with Ava Jerome (Maura West). There is so much that could be done with his character, since he has Kiki (Hayley Erin) as his daughter, Nina as his crazy ex-wife, Ava his ex-mistress and their love/hate relationship. A while back there was a GH rumor going around that Nina didn’t actually lose her baby with Silas, but that Madeline and Ava were in cahoots to take Nina’s baby (Kiki) and pass her off as the product of Ava and Silas’ affair.

Hopefully with the new writing team coming into place, they will be able to find a way to elaborate on Silas’ past and develop his character. Many fans have expressed that a Silas and Ava pairing would be a great idea, especially since there is so much history between those two.

General Hospital Blog will keep fans posted on any new developments related to the status of Michael Easton with General Hospital.

We want to know what you think! Would you like to see Michael Easton stay on GH as Silas Clay?

Real Life Soap Opera Drama: Prospect Park Files Lawsuit with ABC

There has been an ongoing battle between the production company that is re-launching the online soaps All My Children and One Life to Live with ABC. News reports today stated that Prospect Park is suing ABC for 25 million dollars over the licensing agreement they had with ABC regarding the actors and character names from All My Children and One Life to Live. The main issues were heated in previous months regarding the status of the three OLTL characters General Hospital “borrowed” from Prospect Park. After the announcement last week that Kristen Alderson (ex-Starr Manning), Michael Easton (ex-John McBain/Caleb Morley/Stephen Clay), and Roger Howarth (ex-Todd Manning) would be returning to GH May 10th 2013, most likely as new characters, the situation went up in flames. Prospect Park claims that the agreement stated that ABC could borrow seven OLTL characters for General Hospital to keep them employed and appear sparingly on GH.

Prospect Park has filed a breach of contract lawsuit against ABC, complaining that they have broken the licensing agreement and have been trying to sabotage the production process for the AMC and OLTL online series. Prospect Park claims that “in the ultimate act of bad faith, ABC inexplicably killed off two OLTL characters on loan to GH by having their car forced off a cliff. ABC effectively killed off another major OLTL character, who was not licensed to ABC, revealing that this long standing OLTL character is in fact another character (alter ego) on GH.”

Prospect Park accuses an ABC executive of openly wishing All My Children and One Life to Live’s relaunch to fail.

The process of the lawsuit and Prospect Park’s request to go to trial with have no baring on the launch date for these two online soaps. They remain to launch next week, April 29th, 2013.
