Prospect Park Announces Deal for 'One Life to Live' EP to Continue
Frank Valenti will also become vice president of serial drama for the online network.
Prospect Park announced on Friday that One Life to Live executive producer Frank Valenti will continue with the soap when it moves online.
Valenti was named an EP on the ABC drama in 2009 after serving as senior supervising producer and director. He will continue his producing duties on One Life to Live, in addition to serving as vice president of serial dramas on the new online network.
In the position, he will work with Prospect Park's Jeff Kwatinetz and the team to advise the network on serial drama programming strategies, which includes the All My Children launch.
“Frank’s successful track record both creatively and producorially with One Life to Live has been stellar and we are honored that he has also agreed to take on more responsibilities at our new network,” said Kwatinetz and Rich Frank, the latter also of Prospect Park. “Under Frank Valentini’s stewardship, One Life to Live’s popularity and ratings continue to increase, and his commitment to us is another milestone in our commitment to relaunching One Life to Live with the best possible quality and storylines for audiences everywhere.”
Earlier this year, Prospect Park announced that it had inked a multi-year licensing agreement with Disney/ABC Television Group to continue All My Children and One Life to Live online after their runs on ABC end.
All My Children ends Sept. 23, while One Life to Live will say farewell in January.
