The Online Network (TOLN) has halted production of "One Life To Live" indefinitely until the resolution of the online network's lawsuit against ABC over the use of "One Life To Live" characters on "General Hospital." The story was first reported by the Los Angeles Times today.
"One Life To Live" and "All My Children" recently completed their first seasons as online serials. The Los Angeles Times story stated, "Prospect Park is shelving "One Life To Live" until the ABC lawsuit is resolved." Prospect Park sued ABC, the show's former network, alleging that the network tried to sabotage the soap revival by killing off "One Life to Live" characters who were appearing on "General Hospital."
The deal, according to Prospect Park, was that the characters were on loan to ABC so the actors could keep working while the online launch was prepped.
"All My Children" is set to go into production in a month while the future of "One Life To Live" remains up in the air.
