ONE LIFE TO LIVE
TVGuide reports that Prospect Park has suspended the newly revived sudser ONE LIFE TO LIVE indefinitely while it focuses on a lawsuit filed against the ABC network. Despite the legal issues, writers are reportedly still working on scripts for a second season of fellow daytime drama All My Children. Propsect Park CEO Jeff Kwantinetz told the paper that he hopes to resume production on AMC later this month.
In the lawsuit, Prospect Park claims that ABC deliberately derailed the soap opera by killing off two of its most popular characters, Cole (Van Hughes) and Hope Thornhart (Caitlyn Buton) just prior to the series finale on network TV. ABC defended its creative decision to kill off the characters, claiming that they "acted reasonably and in good faith at all times."
OLTL ended its first online season last month,.
About ONE LIFE TO LIVE:
The good people of Llanview, Pennsylvania, lead complicated lives. In a town of questionable marriage ethics, teenagers grow up fast and fall in love quickly. The quiet simplicity of small-town living on the Llantano River is frequently upset by an over-abundance of multiple personalities who disturb the peace.
Despite the jealousy, betrayal, and occasional baby-swapping, Llanview is where the Buchanan, Lord, and Cramer families struggle to retain the strong family ties that have always united them.
