Oprah Winfrey is finally granted Soap fans’ wish.
The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) is hosting a summer fling for soap fans, as the network has acquired the first 40 episodes of The OnLine Network’s reboot versions of All My Children and One Life to Live.
This special event will only last for an exclusive 10-week limited engagement. Beginning July 15, half-hour episodes of each show will air Monday through Thursday, with All My Children airing at 1 p.m. ET and One Life to Live at 3 p.m. ET only on OWN.
“These shows have proven to be very popular with a significant, loyal fan base, not to mention Oprah herself is a big fan,” said Erik Logan, president, OWN. “Many of our viewers across numerous platforms have expressed their passion for the soaps so we are especially excited to air this limited engagement on OWN.”
“We are really excited to bring OWN viewers and our audience at large an opportunity to catch up on All My Children and One Life to Live on traditional television,” said Jeff Kwatinetz, CEO Prospect Park Networks. “We look forward to our millions of fans enjoying the first 40 episodes of the shows.”
New episodes of both series, which returned online on April 29, 2013, are being produced by Prospect Park and The OnLine Network (TOLN).
