Big news! From New York today we learned that “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” will be getting new digs! Beginning the week of January 4, 2010 (one day before the show’s 40th anniversary), “All My Children” will tape out of an HD-compatible production facility in Los Angeles. “One Life to Live” will move a few blocks from their current studio to occupy the one that “All My Children” is vacating.
Okay, so what does this mean? First and foremost, “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” are still going to air at the same time you’re used to seeing them. And the stories will only get better: the people in Pine Valley will still spend an inordinate amount of time in the hospital, and everyone in Llanview will continue to run into each other at the absolutely worst possible moment.
Agnes Nixon, creator of both shows, had this to say to ABC News:
"I am so grateful for the wonderful commitment from ABC to 'All My Children,' "While I will miss being able to run over to the show ... it feels a little like I am sending one of my children off to be married. ... I am glad the network is making moves that will enable the team to continue telling stories about Pine Valley. ... There are many more secrets to be revealed."
