'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live' Set Online Premiere Date
The revived ABC soaps will debut new half-hour episodes daily on Hulu and iTunes.
All My Children and One Life to Live are finally heading online, nearly two years after producers at Prospect Park swooped in to save the axed ABC soaps.
The company announced Monday that both series will be offering daily episodes starting April 29 as a part of its The Online Network. The half-hour formats will be available on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes.
“We thank the fans whose tenaciousness to see these shows return made this historical moment possible," said Prospect Park partners said Jeff Kwatinetz and Rich Frank. "We are determined to repay their support by delivering new and creatively groundbreaking episodes that both the fans, as well as legions of new viewers, will love. These viewers will absolutely embrace the flexibility Hulu and iTunes provide to watch their shows anywhere, anytime."
Production began on All My Children on Feb. 25, with One Life to Live set to return to shooting on March 18 at the same Stamford, Conn., studio. In addition to free daily streaming on Hulu, backlogs will be available to Hulu Plus subscribers and users will also have the option of buying episodes on iTunes.
“I am so pleased that our dream of bringing these two series back to life is coming to fruition," said Agnes Nixon, the creator of both series who maintains a creative consultant status. "I am grateful to Prospect Park for their unwavering commitment to this project and to the amazingly talented casts of All My Children and One Life to Live -- their devotion to these franchises has made this moment possible. And to the fans -- well, we wouldn’t be here without you.”
Prospect Park also included the most up-to-date cast list for both series, which has seen more additions since the return was formalized.
