When asked by Fox411 for a statement, a rep for ABC gave the vaguest of responses regarding ALL MY CHILDREN's uncertain future.
“This rumor has been around for quite some time, so it’s just another story in a long line of these stories that appear from time to time,” ABC’s Jori Petersen said.
But the cast and crew of the soap has been spooked enough to start calling their agents and preparing new head shots.
“Everyone always says the writing is on the wall for soap operas to shut down, but this time the writing is in capital letters,” said one writer for ALL MY CHILDREN who asked that we not use his name in case the show does actually go on. “We all hope we can get jobs in reality television.”
