New Episodes of 'All My Children' Will Premiere Online in January
"All My Children" left TV land last Friday, but the show's soapy adventures will begin again in January, when Prospect Park, the production company that will produce an online version of "AMC," launches its new Web home, The Online Network.
Prospect Park announced the new venture on Tuesday, confirming that "AMC" Webisodes -- which, so far, will include "AMC" TV stars Cameron Mathison and Lindsey Hartley -- will debut as part of The Online Network's launch.

Another soap, ABC's also-canceled "One Life to Live," will also re-launch as a Web series on TOLN, after its TV series finale airs on ABC in January.
Five "OLTL" TV stars have committed to continuing in the Web version of the show, including "One Life" diva Erika Slezak, as well as Michael Easton, Ted King, Kassie DePaiva and Sean Ringgold.
Meanwhile, Prospect Park founders Jeff Kwatinetz and Rich Frank also said they plan on developing original reality and scripted programming for TOLN.

"We are creating TOLN to conveniently deliver fans of quality television long form programming anytime and anywhere," Kwatinetz and Frank said in press statement. "The viewer response to the shows we have licensed has been tremendous, and we have much more in development to appeal to a broad audience base."
Prospect Park already has a successful track record with developing TV series for TV: Its USA Network medical drama "Royal Pains" will resume its third season in January and has already been renewed for a fourth, while the Prospect Park-produced FX dramedy "Wilfred" has been renewed for a second season on the cable network.Related Articles: Kelly Ripa: 'All My Children' Cancellation Like 'Losing a Family Member' ABC Daytime President on Soaps: 'The Strongest Will Survive'
