Morgan tweeted, “Ok, I can finally announce how thrilled I am 2 B on board w/the “All My Children” re-boot & Prospect Park! Agnes Nixon is my HERO!!!”
Agnes Nixon made the official announcement on Friday, Jan. 4 that “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” would reboot as Internet soaps.
Debbi Morgan went on to tweet in response to many congratulations and questions about whether her romantic partner, Darnell Williams who played Jesse Hubbard, and best buddy Michael E. Knight, who played Tad Martin, had signed on, Morgan replied:
“It’s just terrific news, isn’t it?! Darnell is definitely on board, and I think Mike is as well, but not quite sure yet.” Morgan went on “multiple times” to confirm that Williams is in fact signed on and that she could not do the show without him.
Vincent Irizarry has also announced that he has signed on for the “All My Children” reboot. Irizarry will bring the dashing, diabolical Dr. David Hayward back to Pine Valley, Pa.
Susan Lucci is rumored to be in talks with Prospect Park to bring the forever young and formidable Erica Kane back to Pine Valley. Susan Lucci played the role of Erica Kane for the entire 41 year run of "All My Children."
There are some conflicting reports of when the shows will air on the Internet. TV Source reported that the shows will air four days per week, with a recap show airing on Fridays, for 48 weeks out of the year. The recent issue of Soap Opera Digest reports that the soaps will air in five to six week ‘arcs,’ alternating between “All My Children” and “One Life to Live.” This would allow the shows to be a lot more tightly constructed, and faster paced. Soap Opera Digest also reports that “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” will tape in the same studio using the same sets.
