Prospect Park LogoSoapdom has learned that production company, Prospect Park, inked a deal today with the Writers Guild (WGA) for scribes to begin working on the resurected All My Children and One Life to Live to air on The Online Network.  This is great news not only for the two soap operas which will be the anchor shows for this new online programming platform, but for any other shows that the network develops down the line.

Deals with the Director's Guild (DGA) and the Screen Actors Guild/Amerian Federation of Television and Radio Artists  (SAG/AFTRA) were completed in December. 

We have not heard if deals with the IATSE Labor union have been sealed, or if the production company is planning on a union crew.

In a statement released earlier this week, Prospect Park co-founders Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz announced they brought on Jenniffer Pepperman to executive produce One Life to Live; Ginger Smith as EP of All My Children, and Foz McDermott is heading production for The Online Network.  Agnes Nixon, creator of both soaps has been tapped to consult.  They also confirmed they had secured the necessary financing and distribution, which we hear will be in conjunction with the Hulu platform. 

Stars of both shows are being approached and deals are being extended. Production is expected to begin in February.  The shows could be back on the air as early as mid March.

Past Blast

Days of our Lives' Blake Berris on Meth Head

Blake Berris of Days of our Lives in a movie? You bet. The talented actor not only lights up the screen on Days as the twisted character of Nick Fallon that he so eloquently plays, but now he co-stars in "Meth Head" an independent feature film that was just screened in Washington, DC.  -- to rave reviews.

"Yes! I just came back from the screening. I'm still in Washington and I was thrilled to read the reviews in the papers," Berris said. "This film is something I really wanted to do."

Berris plays Dustin, a character who befriends Kyle, the lead character, played by Lukas Hass ("Lincoln", "Inception", " Brick"), and let's just say he leads him down the pathway of life to hell.
