Promised plans by production company Prospect Park have collapsed, and with no other bidders in line, it appears legendary, long-running soap operas "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" will not continue.
ABC canceled the shows earlier this year and Prospect Park acquired the rights, vowing to continue both on the web.
Today the company released a statement, "We always knew it would be an uphill battle to create something historical, and unfortunately we couldn't ultimately secure the backing and clear all the hurdles in time."
And in typical soap opera fashion, according to the editor of the website, "We Love Soaps", Roger Newcomb, "Prospect Park had asked the producers of both soaps to write cliffhanger endings."
Fans of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" may now be left 'hanging' forever.
