It's been more than two months since ABC announced that it had licensed All My Children to Prospect Park. Since that time there's been little of what fans might consider good news. Now, an AMC star has confirmed that talks are taking place between the actors and the new production company.

"I have been given permission to announce that I and others from All My Children have been approached by the company, Prospect Park, who bought AMC with the intention to move it online," Mathison announced. "Just as soaps were very pivotal in the transition from radio to television, they will be right in the thick of things again in the transition from television to the Internet."
Though he was unable to offer specifics -- and noted that there are "a few more I's to be dotted and T's to be crossed" -- Mathison noted that "it's looking very good."
