I remember when I believed that Prospect Park was All My Children‘s saviour, that was when ABC announced that it was letting go of the much beloved soap. Now, I find Prospect Park’s actions towards deciding to bench AMC indefinitely totally disgusting and disrespectful to it’s many loyal fans. We were promised that AMC was going online and they left us hanging in the that last episode with who JR shot, without giving us closure to his character, which was not fair in the least. I have completely boycotted the ABC network for AMC’s previous time slot and I will continue to do so. Had they not been so greedy for the all mighty dollar and made better decision when it came to their writing staff, AMC would still be on air.
Let’s call a “spade a spade” here. All the wonderful AMC actors, including Susan Lucci, were waiting to hear back from Prospect Park with a concrete offer for months now. These people have mortgages, families, children to feed; how long can they possibly wait until Prospect Park gets their “ducks in a row”. I say good riddence to Prospect Park, we will see our beloved actors again as they will do doubt be picked by other networks.
Last week, Susan Lucci made an official statement on her Facebook regarding all the rumours that she did not want to return to AMC online.
I want my fans to know the truth. There has been miscommunications as a result of statements in the press that I am one of the reasons that All My Children is not moving forward. This is simply untrue and not the case. We have been in discussions since Prospect Park first expressed interest in moving the series online, and in correspondence dated September 8th, I made it clear that I would be ecstatic to be a part of All My Children in a prominent way if they committed to producing the series for another year. I have not heard back from Prospect Park since then, in fact, I learned of their decision not to proceed with All My Children at the same time you did, through the media.
It’s been a privilege and honor to be involved with the All My Children family for so many years, from working closely with Agnes Nixon to getting to know millions of devoted and wonderful fans.
