ATWT: It's a Wrap!
"It's a wrap......ATWT.....xoxoxoxoxox ." And so it goes at the Brooklyn studio for the 54 year-old television institution. Although the show will air until September, this brings home the reality that was announced last December.
For those holding out any hope of ATWT finding a new home, EW.com is reporting the following:
TeleNext Media, the company that has produced the sudser, released this statement today to EW: “Last December, when CBS informed us that they were canceling As The World Turns, we immediately launched a far-reaching search to find a new outlet for the show, said Brian T. Cahill, senior VP and managing director of TeleNext Media Inc. We have aggressively pursued network and cable outlets as well as syndication options, and have explored many innovative formats and relationships that we hoped would ultimately enable the future success of As The World Turns. Regrettably, we have not found an outlet or platform that will carry the show forward. This is an extremely disappointing outcome to what was a tireless and exhaustive pursuit.
In the meantime, fans, spend the next couple of months savoring your favorite actors and characters. I know I will!
