NEW YORK, Sept. 18 (UPI) -- The first seasons of the online version of the U.S. soap operas "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" are available on soapoperadigest.com, producers said.
Soap Opera Digest has partnered with Prospect Park's The OnLine Network for a deal to re-run the most recent episodes of the series.
"We are thrilled to have these amazing shows on soapoperadigest.com," magazine editorial director Stephanie Sloane said in a statement Tuesday. "The fan outcry when they were canceled was overwhelming and now, thanks to TOLN, they have the opportunity to watch the groundbreaking first season of the re-boot along with their favorite characters in this fresh new format on our website."
"The cast and crew of 'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live' have worked tirelessly to bring these shows back to life and our commitment to them is that Season 1 reach the largest audience possible. We appreciate Soap Opera Digest's help in reaching even more fans via their trusted brand and platform," said TOLN/Prospect Park Chief Executive Officer Jeff Kwatinetz.
ABC canceled the beloved soaps in 2011 to make way for additional lifestyle programming. They were resurrected and made available online in April 2013.
Prospect Park said the shows consistently ranked in the Top 10 on Hulu and iTunes, then aired on Oprah Winfrey's OWN Cable Network in a second-window syndication.
