AFTRA: Prospect Park Has Not Responded For The Past Month

AFTRA, the union that represents daytime actors including ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE, has released a statement regarding Prospect Park's decision to suspend production of the soaps.

Read it below and let us know what you think.

AFTRA was deeply disappointed to read that the executives at Prospect Park have decided to suspend their efforts to produce the long-running and popular daytime serials, 'One Life to Live' and 'All My Children,' via online distribution. Despite initial progress in our negotiations with Prospect Park toward resolving a fair agreement to cover the performers appearing on these programs, we were perplexed and disappointed that for the past month Prospect Park has not responded to our repeated inquiries to resume those discussions. We now conclude from the press reports that Prospect Park faced other challenges unrelated to our negotiations, which prevented continuation of those discussions. We remain hopeful that an opportunity to revive these two popular series will emerge in the future, and remain ready to resume discussions should that opportunity arise.
