Robert S. Woods (Bo, One Life to Live)The Online Network announced today that production will commence on the highly-anticipated revivals of the beloved long-running serial dramas All My Children and One Life to Live beginning February 25.

Principal production for both series will take place in Stamford, Connecticut with new episodes of All My Children and One Life to Life set to debut later this spring.

In an announcement earlier this year, Prospect Park's The Online Network revealed its plans to re-introduce the beloved vanguard franchises, through a groundbreaking content deal that will bring premium first-run, broadcast-quality programming to a  mass market audience via the Internet.

When the LA-based production company first announced its licensing deal with ABC and it's plans to keep the shows alive in mid 2011, hour-long versions were being discussed.  However, Prospect Park has now revealed that brand new 30-minute episodes of both soap operas will be launched each weekday and available to stream online via the free service and to subscribers of Hulu Plus making these venerable dramas available in a new format that suits the viewing habits of the digital generation.

In addition, the iTunes Store will offer both series via iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple TV and Mac or PC.

But it's not going to be the same old soap operas.  

Breathing new life into the storied franchises, Prospect Park and TOLN will blend updated themes and fresh faces with the fan-favorite Emmy-winning actors and writers who made these series must-watch viewing for legions of loyal fans.

Previously announced All My Children cast members include: Darnell Williams (Jesse Hubbard), Debbi Morgan (Dr. Angela Hubbard), Vincent Irizarry (Dr. David Hayward), Lindsay Hartley (Cara Martin), Jordi Vilasuso (Griffin Castillo), Jill Larson (Opal Cortlandt), Thorsten Kaye (Zach Slater).

Although not officially announced yet by Prospect Park, Soapdom has learned that Cady McClain (Dixie Martin) is also just about to sign on the dotted line, thanks to her announcement on her blog last week.

Previously announced One Life to Liv cast members include: Erika Slezak (Victoria Lord Buchanan), Robin Strasser (Dorian Lord), Tuc Watkins (David Vickers), Robert S. Woods (Bo Buchanan), Kassie DePaiva (Blair Cramer), Jerry verDorn (Clint Buchanan), Florencia Lozano (Tea Delgado), Melissa Archer (Natalie Buchanan Banks), Hillary B. Smith (Nora Buchanan), Kelley Missal (Danielle Manning) Josh Kelly (Cutter Wentworth), and Andrew Trischitta (Jack Manning). Recurring actors include: Sean Ringgold (Shaun Evans), Shenaz Treasury (Rama Patel), and Nick Choksi (Vimal Patel).

Prospect Park continues to cast both shows and we will advise you of additional developments as they become available.
