What exactly does Prospect Park's decision to cut down on new episodes of All My Children and One Life to Live mean for their pact with FX Canada? According to Canadian entertainment journalist Nelson Branco (Soap Opera Uncensored), the cabler is replacing the soaps with repeats of 30 Rock. Tweeted Branco:
Since talk of Prospect Park renewing their efforts to bring back One Life to Live and All My Children first began, the production company has benefited tremendously from guerilla-style, social media marketing from the sudsers' passionate stars. Legendary actors Vincent Irizarry, Cady McClain, Jill Larson, Debbi Morgan, Kassie DePaiva and Robin Strasser have led the charge in spreading positive news about the endeavors. They've been aided by newcomers like Rob Wilson, Sal Stowers, Eric Nelsen and Rob Gorrie.
Many of these stars have been working overtime to quell panic from fans since Prospect Park announced they were cutting their weekly number of episodes in half. Below are a sample of their tweets and Facebook posts:
Prospect Park's Jeff Kwatinetz and Rich Frank are continuing to utilize their pop music connections to cross promote their new online soaps. R&B sensation Jason Derulo taped an episode of All My Children on May 8. He performed his new single "The Other Side" at a fictional gala thrown by Brooke English (Julia Barr).
"I was thrilled to stop by Pine Valley to perform my new single for All My Children. It's such an iconic show and it’s cool to be a part of its revival online,” says Derulo. “I have nothing but love and respect for the cast and series and had a blast on set.”
