NEW YORK (AP) - Venerable daytime dramas "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" will soon be reborn online after getting the ax by ABC, which had broadcast them for decades.
Prospect Park's The Online Network has set its debut of both long-running soaps for April 29.
Both will appear each weekday with new 30-minute episodes available to stream on computers for free on the Hulu website. Subscribers to Hulu Plus can watch them on a variety of other devices. Episodes will also be available on iTunes.
Agnes Nixon, the soap opera pioneer who created both shows more than 40 years ago, is serving as creative consultant for their online revivals.
A number of stars from the long broadcast run of each soap are also returning, to join new cast members.
