Susan Lucci has not heard from Prospect Park since Sept. 8
"I want my fans to know the truth. There has been miscommunications as a result of statements in the press that I am one of the reasons that ALL MY CHILDREN is not moving forward. This is simply untrue and not the case. We have been in discussions since Prospect Park first expressed interest in moving the series online, and in correspondence dated September 8th, I made it clear that I would be ecstatic to be a part of ALL MY CHILDREN in a prominent way if they committed to producing the series for another year. I have not heard back from Prospect Park since then, in fact, I learned of their decision not to proceed with ALL MY CHILDREN at the same time you did, through the media."

It has a lot of different themes and it's a fresh take, I think, on a tried and true format. By the way, I grew up watching nighttime dramas like DYNASTY, KNOTS LANDING and MELROSE PLACE and those things so, no, if I fit into that category, I consider that high praise!"
