Today, we are one step closer to watching ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE on the Internet, direct from Prospect Park. In a press release issued earlier today, PP announced the name (and web address) of its new content delivery portal. It's called THE Online Network and will be housed at TheOnlineNetwork.com / TOLN.com.
As of this posting, there's not much to see, but it's worth the click just so you can sign up for the TOLN newsletter.
From the Press Release:
"We are creating TOLN to conveniently deliver fans of quality television long form programming anytime and anywhere," Prospect Park founders Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz said in a statement. "With broadband availability in 70 percent of U.S. households and the proliferation of Internet-enabled televisions, DVRs and wireless devices, ultimately we believe that online distribution provides the best platform to access 30- and 60-minute entertainment content. The viewer response to the shows we have licensed has been tremendous, and we have much more in development to appeal to a broad audience base."
To date Prospect Park has signed five actors from ONE LIFE TO LIVE (Erika Slezak, Michael Easton, Ted King, Kassie DePaiva and Sean Ringgold) and two from ALL MY CHILDREN (Cameron Mathison and Lindsey Hartley). The shows will debut on TOLN.com in January 2012.
Prospect Park also plans to add reality, scripted comedy and drama programming to TOLN's slate in the future.
