‘All My Children’ & ‘One Life To Live’ Start Hiatus Early Because Of IATSE Dispute, Shows Mull Move To New Location

All My Children and One Life To Live were scheduled to go on hiatus on June 17. But in light of recent labor issues between soap’s producer Prospect Park and IATSE  Local 52, work will stop 11 days earlier. What’s more, because of the dispute, I hear Prospect Park is considering moving production of the two shows, based in Stamford, Conn., to another state. “As a result of a dispute with the IATSE, The OnLine Network is beginning a long-planned hiatus for both All My Children and One Life To Live tomorrow instead of June 17,” the company said in a statement. “The hiatus is scheduled to end on August 12 pending resolution of this labor issue. Right now we have 40 episodes of each show ready to post through September, and if we can resolve this issue by August, we can get back into the studio on time so audiences will enjoy uninterrupted postings of their favorite shows.”
