altOn Monday, March 10, 2014 in Los Angeles, CA, Prospect Park Networks, LLC ("PPN") announced that it has filed a voluntary petition for protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Federal Bankruptcy Code in the District of Delaware. Prospect Park, the talent and management company, is unrelated to PPN and not included in the bankruptcy filing.

PPN produced 40 episodes of "One Life to Live" and 43 episodes of "All My Children" and aired them on TOLN (The Online Network) in attempt to anchor this new online broadcast distribution channel with a built in soap opera audience.  However, the plan failed when fans did not watch in great enough numbers, struggles with production craft unions caused production delays, and PPN filed suit against Disney/ABC for breach of contract. In August 2013, PPN ceased production on the programs.

The Chapter 11 filing in no way impacts PPN's litigation against the American Broadcasting Companies, Inc. In addition, the bankruptcy filing will allow PPN the timing flexibility to collect on a tax credit from the Connecticut Office of Film, Television & Digital Media.

PPN is optimistic that this filing will make it possible to continue to maximize the value of its assets and settlement of past liabilities. The company is optimistic about the prospects for a smooth transition into bankruptcy.

So what will happen to "All My Children" and "One Life to Live?"  In the ongoing soap opera that is Prospect Park's production strategy and law suits with original content owners, Disney/ABC, it remains to be seen.  Soapdom will keep you posted.

Past Blast

50 Years of Days of our Lives ~ 50 Years of an iconic theme…

When Bobby Hart and his songwriting partner, Tommy Boyce, were commissioned to write the theme song for a brand new soap opera over 50 years ago, they had no idea whatsoever that it would still be running on air, five days a week, twice a day for 50 years.

"I am blessed," Hart revealed to Soapdom, being grateful for its longevity and Days' Executive Producer, Ken Corday, keeping the Boyce & Hart theme song airing all these years.

You may not recognize the name of the songwriting team of Boyce & Hart, but odds are, if you or your parents were around in the mid to late 1960s, you are more than familiar with their music.
