NY POST article posted last night is causing quite a stir in the soap world. It states, in part, that AMC and OLTL have been purchased by Prospect Park to be included in a new venture the company is putting together, a Hulu like online site for televisions shows. The article continues by saying that production will continue... crew, cast, everything, right where it left off. My initial reaction to this is "you've got to be kidding me!" If ABC's claims that they can't afford production of the soaps anymore, how is some internet TV station going to do it? Even if that internet company boasts some big name former ABC execs. ABC Soaps in Depth has uncovered through their vast sources that the article isn't entirely accurate but that "good news" is coming. Via Twitter, ABC Soaps in Depth speculated that the archives were purchased and will be shown on the internet. And I agree, that makes more sense. Will post more news as I hear it! Stay tuned.
