Former Daytime Emmy-Winning Scribe Sara Bibel Weighs in on Prospect Park’s Maneuver Around WGA

Former Daytime Emmy-winning writer Sara Bibel has a few questions for Prospect Park about their attempts to bring All My Children and One Life to Live back from the dead. Although Bibel praises PP's efforts to resurrect the defunct sudsers, she wonders why the production studio with such primetime titans as Royal Pains and Wilfred under their belts, would try to proceed without the Writers Guild of America. Check out a snippet of her latest column after the jump, and be sure to read it in full here.

Prospect Park to All My Children and One Life to Live Actors: “We Want to See You on All Our Shows!”

 


The mysterious peeps behind Prospect Park are starting to make their presence known on the sets of All My Children and most recently One Life to Live. While my sources tell me the execs couldn't get into too many specifics—on the advice of their attorneys—until they completed negotiations with the respective unions representing the sudsers, one thing that was clearly communicated was PP's desire to see their soap actors appear on their small stable of cable series!

"They told the actors that if they become a part of the Prospect Park family, they'd want to help grow their careers by assisting them in getting parts on their other shows like Royal Pains and Wilfred," says a setsider.

Hopefully this will entice a few current Pine Valley and Llanview dwellers to make the jump with the shows online, as several big name stars have already announced plans to move on. As I previously reported, my sources tell me PP also has a pact in place giving them first dibs to license General Hospital when and if that series is cancelled by ABC.
