Susan Lucci will never, ever retire. I'm not sure who's still watching soap operas, but apparently, there are people out there. And there's some good news for them.
All My Children and One Life to Live are still set to be booted from ABC, but the network has apparently sold the online rights to both shows.
The New York Post reports that ABC sold the rights to Prospect Park, a company that is set to launch a streaming TV site akin to Hulu. These two soaps are set to be the first of many more television shows that will be on Prospect Park's web-only network.
Sources claimed that All My Children and One Life to Live will pick up online right where they leave off after their finales, and the cast and crew will remain the same.
That means Erica Kane will live on. And as good as she looks, there's no reason Susan Lucci should go anywhere. The only problem is, I'm pretty sure the only people who still watch soap operas are housewives fifty and up who have been watching their "stories" for the past twenty years. And we all know old people and the Internet just don't mix.
No official word yet from any ABC or Prospect Park reps. But an ABC insider says that the New York Post's story has some "inaccuracies."
