New Versions of All My Children and One Life to Live WON'T be Telenovela Style!
Buzz that the continuations of All My Children and One Life to Live, set to air on Prospect Park's The Online Network (TOLN) and other platforms, will be distributed in telenovela arcs apparently isn't true. According to Soap Opera Uncensored, OLTL's co-head writer Thom Racina has disputed those claims. From the ezine:
Meanwhile, reports that AMC and ONE LIFE would adopt a telenovela format once it hits online are untrue, Llanview co-head writer Thom Racina tells me.
I was kinda looking forward to shorter arcs for AMC and OLTL. I enjoyed the format on Port Charles, and feel it helps prevent the type of story fatigue so many daytime dramas suffer from at times. That being said, if Racina is involved, I at least know Llanview is in good hands. Here's hoping All My Children will also luck out in the writers' room...
