Yes, soap fans, it’s really, truly, finally happening. New 30-minute episodes of All My Children and One Life to Live—canceled by ABC in 2011—will premiere April 29 on The Online Network (available via Hulu and iTunes).
These long-delayed reboots are “a new and really exciting way of telling soap stories,” says AMC’s Thorsten Kaye (who plays Zach, right, with Debbi Morgan’s Angie). AMC will leap some five years into the future to help explain why some characters have vanished (hello… Erica?) and others are suddenly grown. “Our little ones are now teenagers in order to make them more dramatically viable,” Kaye says. “I mean, how interesting is a 7-year-old?”
How's it going so far? Ever the realist, Kaye says "It's been terrific getting back to work but we're definitely experiencing some growing pains. This is a huge undertaking. ABC did it for 40 years. For a company that's new to soaps like Prospect Park, it's a whole other ball game. We ask the fans to bear with us. It will take a bit of time to get it right but I do believe we can!"
