Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz’s Prospect Park has cleared the last major hurdle in its effort to revive the cancelled ABC daytime dramas All My Children and One Life To Live online, reaching an agreement with the WGA. The company already inked deals with SAG-AFTRA and DGA for the soaps’ production in December. With the WGA taking long to engage, Prospect Park was faced with the prospect of having to work with fi-core writers, which proved difficult. Now it doesn’t have to. The company recently announced that it has secured financing and distribution, entered into a consulting agreement with Agnes Nixon, creator of both All My Children and One Life To Live, signed Jennifer Pepperman as Executive Producer on One Life to Live, Ginger Smith as Executive Producer on All My Children and Foz McDermott as head of production of The Online Network where the soaps will air. Prospect Park also has started to lock in cast members for a February production start.
