After ABC canceled daytime dramas “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” and Prospect Park revived them online, the shows are now coming full circle and heading back to TV on OWN.
In what’s billed as a “10-week limited engagement,” AMC will air at 1 p.m. and OLTL at 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday beginning July 15. The run will start from the beginning of the shows’ online revivals, broadcasting previously produced episodes already available online.
“These shows have proven to be very popular with a significant, loyal fan base, not to mention Oprah herself is a big fan,” OWN president Erik Logan said in a statement. “Many of our viewers across numerous platforms have expressed their passion for the soaps so we are especially excited to air this limited engagement on OWN.”
Adds Prospect Park CEO Jeff Kwatinetz, “We are really excited to bring OWN viewers and our audience at large an opportunity to catch up on ‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live’ on traditional television. We look forward to our millions of fans enjoying the first 40 episodes of the shows.”
