Agnes Nixon, the living legend responsible for the creation of All My Children and One Life to Live, has released a statement regarding ABC's decision to pull the plug on the two soaps. The statement was first released to Entertainment Weekly.
My deep gratitude goes to all the talented people who have contributed to All My Children and One Life To Live over these many years; we were always family, made up of writers, producers, directors, actors, crews. Equally important in that family are our loyal fans who shared this journey with us. Although ABC has concluded there is no longer a place for our shows on their network, I will do everything possible to keep them alive. God bless you all.
