This is real fucking bullshit what Prospect Park is planning, I am so disgusted with them I may just stop watching OLTL altogether.
The drama behind the soap. The Los Angeles Times posted a report this morning stating that Prospect Park plans on shelving the revived “One Life to Live” until it settles the matter of the ABC lawsuit. A few months ago, Prospect Park had sued ABC in response to the fact that two characters were killed off from “OLTL” when they made the crossover to “General Hospital.”
According to chief executive Jeff Kwatinetz, Prospect Park loaned the characters to “GH” until the plans to get the online revivals of both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” off the ground, however he never assumed that certain characters would end up killed on the lone ABC Daytime soap. ABC responded that nothing was done wrong and acted in good faith regardless.
This is not the first time that Prospect Park has been getting the heat. Back in June, production on both online soaps stopped for a few weeks due to an argument of wages with the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. Also, Kwatinetz reduced the number of episodes for both soaps over the course of their run, as well as the viewing schedules.
According to the article, writers are putting scripts together for a second season of “All My Children,” and Kwatinetz plans to ramp up production this month.
