Multiple sources are reporting that Brian Frons, head of ABC Daytime, has said a spin off of One Life to Live is in the works and much like General Hospital Night Shift, the spin off will air on SoapNet. Frons not only heads up ABC Daytime, but also runs SoapNet and it looks like a Young & the Restless primetime spin off is being discussed as well.
ABC Daytime President Brian Frons told reporters at an "OLTL" press conference today that he and SoapNet have been in talks to develop a spin-off of "OLTL" for primetime. Concepts are being tossed around, but nothing firm has been settled. Among the rumored ideas: Taking police detective John McBain (Michael Easton) and following him on a case.
According to last year's most powerful man on soaps, Brian Frons, SOAPnet will be spinning off OLTL into its own prime-time series. Details are sketchy, but the masterminds are leaning towards focusing on John McBain. Personally, I think they'd be fools not to centre the show around David Vickers and Tuc Watkins. Frons adds Y&R may also get the Night Shift treatment.
