'One Life to Live,' 'All My Children' Labor Dispute Resolved
The online soaps will resume production Aug. 12 following their planned hiatus.
Prospect Park and the IATSE New York Production Locals 52, 161, 600, 700, 764, 798 and USA829 said Thursday that the two parties have resolved issues related to the production of All My Children and One Life to Live. As a result, production on both series will resume as planned following the shows’ hiatus, on Aug. 12.
Details of the deals were not released.
Local 600 Representative David Blake said, “We are pleased that that the parties were able to successfully address their concerns in a mutually beneficial way, which will enable these innovative shows to continue to be produced with our talented crews.”
“We thank the entire IATSE organization for their continued support in bringing these shows to fans, and we especially appreciate the efforts of Chaim Kantor and John Ford and our entire crew for helping us to move forward as a unified team,” said Prospect Park’s Jeff Kwatinetz.
New episodes of both series are being produced by Prospect Park and The OnLine Network. One Life to Live debuted on ABC in 1968, and All My Children debuted on ABC in 1970. The shows were created by Agnes Nixon, and each ran on broadcast television for more than 40 years, until 2011. Both series have won numerous Daytime Emmys and have earned hundreds of nominations in various categories. TOLN brought the shows back on April 29, and episodes are available on Hulu and iTunes.
