Legendary soap creator Agnes Nixon has released a statement regarding Prospect Park's planned reboot of storied soaps All My Children and One Life to Live. Nixon's statement, which Soap Central has confirmed is legitimate, is a further indication for dubious soap fans that this, in fact, is the real deal.
"We of the One Life to Live and All My Children families are thrilled to bring our beloved viewers new, ongoing stories from Llanview and Pine Valley," Nixon wrote on her Facebook page. "I'm overjoyed that so many actors you love have voiced their desire to bring their characters back to life."
Last month, news of Prospect Park's second effort to move the soaps to the Internet was leaked to the press. To date, Prospect Park has yet to offer anything in the way of an official statement of its own.
"I'm especially grateful to Prospect Park for deploying the power of you, our fans, to enable this exciting transition to dramatic production for the Internet. It's a historic moment, comparable to how life was changed when television took over from radio," Nixon added. "We hope this wonderful opportunity will be embraced by all as our creative teams gear up to bring our beloved serials back to our daily lives."
It is unclear if Nixon will have a role in the so-called "2.0" versions of All My Children and One Life to Live. Prospect Park has, however, signed at least two All My Children stars for the project, as well as executive producers for both AMC and OLTL.
