[ # ] RIP All My Children…for now
November 11th, 2013 under TV Soaps

ABC cancelled All My Children and One Life to Live on the same day, but Prospect Park was able to help them see a few more days online and on OWN. I say that in the past tense because it looks like both shows are once again dead for the time being.
All My Children’s Cady McClain posted this sad message on her Facebook page:

If you aren’t hearing anything about the ending of AMC as we know it, it’s really out of shock. I am also trying to allow PP to have the moment to contact all the actors and explain what is and has been going on with AMC, and then gather themselves to try and explain it all to you, the fans.
I can confirm what Debbie Morgan has shared already, that we were given assurances that we would be continuing with the series and then were very recently contacted and told that, with great regret, AMC won’t be going back online this year, or in this particular incarnation. Certainly hope springs eternal that we will yet again, spring from the dead.
I do feel confident in sharing my opinion that PP and all “the powers that be” involved in making AMC and OLTL truly loved the shows and did their utmost to make continuing them possible. The premiere in NYC was one of the most exciting moments I have had the privilege to be a part of in my career. I am not privy to the behind the scenes decisions, however. Like you, I can only experience those choices second hand and guess at the reasons why this is happening now.
Instead of going into the “What Went Wrong” question, I think I’d rather focus on the gratitude I feel for having been asked to continue with the show. If I am still wanted as an actor on daytime, it is all because of YOU, the FANS.
I am so very grateful for your support. To have had the opportunity to be a part of an innovative experience that strived to keep American soaps alive via a new medium, to be a part of the continuing fabric of your lives through daytime storytelling, and to be able to work with dear friends who I’ve known all my life was a very special experience for which I have you to thank.
So THANK YOU for all the cheering, love, and support, daytime family. You’ve been AWESOME.

How many times has Stefano DiMera come back to life on Days of our Lives, maybe the same will happen for these two daytime dramas. I hope by some miracle they can rise like the Phoenix again.
BTW I blame Susan Lucci for this because she should’ve appeared on the online version of the soap opera that made her a star and an Emmy winner. I am sure she could’ve fit it in her schedule between takes of Devious Maids.
