Susan Lucci‘s failure to sign with Prospect Park for the online version of the popular daytime drama is being cited as the reason that that the production company is not going forward with the project at this time – and she went online to explain to fans that she is not to blame.
“This is simply untrue and not the case,” the Emmy-winning daytime diva posted on her Facebook page.
She went on to say: “I been in discussions since Prospect Park first expressed interest in moving the series online, and I made it clear that I would be ecstatic to be a part of All My Children in a prominent way if they committed to producing the series for another year. I have not heard back from Prospect Park since then. In fact, I learned of their decision not to proceed with All My Children at the same time you did, through the media.”
While All My Children has been benched, plans are going ahead for One Life to Live to go online once it wraps up on ABC in January.
