It's confirmed: There is life after death — at least when it comes to soap operas. Production company Prospect Park announced yesterday that All My Children and One Life to Live, both of which aired on network TV for more than 40 years before being cancelled, will be reincarnated on Hulu and iTunes.
Production on All My Children has already begun and shooting will begin on One Life to Live next week.
“We thank the fans whose tenaciousness to see these shows return made this historical moment possible. 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," Prospect Park's partners Jeff Kwatinetz and Rich Frank, said in a statement.
Both beloved shows will see the return of veteran stars, including AMC's David Canary, Julia Barr, Jll Larsen, Cady McClain and Debbi Morgan, and OLTL's Erika Slezak, Robert S. Woods, Robin Strasser and Hillary B. Smith. New characters have also been created to freshen up the series.
Thirty-minute episodes of the dramas will be available on Hulu and iTunes every weekday, starting Monday, April 29.
