Ten-week run for revived soaps will kick off July 15
The Oprah Winfrey Network is getting all soaped up this summer.
The recently revived soap operas "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" will air for a 10-week engagement on OWN this summer, starting July 15.
The network will air the first 40 episodes of the series, Monday through Thursday, with "All My Children" airing at 1 p.m, and "One Life to Live" airing at 3 p.m.
"These shows have proven to be very popular with a significant, loyal fan base, not to mention Oprah herself is a big fan,” OWN president Erik Logan said of the run. "Many of our viewers across numerous platforms have expressed their passion for the soaps so we are especially excited to air this limited engagement on OWN."
The soaps, which were revived by Prospect Park after network cancelation, premiered in their new incarnation on April 29, airing on The Online Network, Hulu and iTunes.
"We are really excited to bring OWN viewers and our audience at large an opportunity to catch up on 'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live' on traditional television,” Prospect Park Networks CEO Jeff Kwatinetz said. "We look forward to our millions of fans enjoying the first 40 episodes of the shows."
