LOS ANGELES, March 11 (UPI) -- Prospect Park's The Online Network says fresh episodes of the U.S. soap operas "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" will premiere on the Internet April 29.

ABC announced in 2011 it was canceling the decades-old daytime dramas to make way for more popular reality-lifestyle programming.

New 30-minute episodes of the revived soap operas are set to begin this spring and will air each weekday. The installments will be available to stream online via the free Hulu.com service and to subscribers of Hulu Plus.

The iTunes Store will offer both series via iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple TV and Mac or PC.

"We thank the fans whose tenaciousness to see these shows return made this historical moment possible. We are determined to repay their support by delivering new and creatively groundbreaking episodes that both the fans, as well as legions of new viewers, will love. These viewers will absolutely embrace the flexibility Hulu and iTunes provide to watch their shows anywhere, anytime," Prospect Park's Jeff Kwatinetz and Rich Frank said in a joint statement Monday. "The response and camaraderie of our cast and crew has been inspiring as we have all banded together to succeed in our mission; unencumbered by the creative constraints of traditional broadcast television, to deliver story lines, style and characters that are stronger, with more dimension than ever. Now with our launch date set in stone, we are ready to lead this historic return. To the fans we proclaim, your support counts now more than ever."

Emmy Award winner Agnes Nixon, creative consultant for both programs and a soap opera pioneer, said: "I am so pleased that our dream of bringing these two series back to life is coming to fruition. I am grateful to Prospect Park for their unwavering commitment to this project and to the amazingly talented casts of 'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live' -- their devotion to these franchises has made this moment possible. And to the fans -- well, we wouldn't be here without you."

Production began on "All My Children" Feb. 25, and shooting will begin on "One Life to Live" March 18. Both series are filmed in Stamford, Conn.
