ABC has sold the online rights to the canceled shows to Prospect Park, a company lead by Royal Pains executive producers Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz. The company is the process of finalizing the funding for an as-yet-unnamed online TV network that would feature the soaps and eventually other programming.
If the deal holds, both All My Children and One Life to Live, which are scheduled to end in September and January, respectively, will pick up story lines right where they left off on the new network. The shows' crews and actors will also remain in place, according to the Post.
An email to ABC was not immediately returned.
Would you still watch the soaps online?
