Tainted Dreams creator Sonia Blangiardo has been named Supervising Producer of All My Children, coming this spring from Prospect Park. “I am so excited to go back to my AMC roots with this talented group of people,” enthuses Blangiardo in an exclusive statement to… her own website, NYC BRAND PRODUCTIONS. “Ginger Smith has some big plans, which long-time fans are going to love.”
Rumors abound that those plans include adding Susan Lucci (Erica), Julia Barr (Brooke) and David Canary (Adam) to the show for varying length stints, but we’re all going to have to watch the first episode to see if that’s true. I tried to confirm it, but in an ironic twist that soap fans will appreciate, Sonia is keeping mum about the cast in her new role as AMC Supervising Producer.
Even for her own site. So all I can say is, stay tuned!
What are YOU most interested in seeing on the AMC reboot? Write your comments below! Personally, I’m looking forward to exploring where Zach and Kendall are a few years later (assuming AMC can come to terms with Alicia Minshew), and what’s up with Angie and Jesse. I hope Angie’s running the hospital, Jesse’s the police chief, and all their conflict comes from butting heads about their work. That’s one solid couple I want to see tackling Pine Valley’s problems together.
As for Jesse’s best friend Tad, Michael E. Knight told Soap Opera Digest this week, “I didn’t say no, I just said, ‘I can’t do it right now.’ I love the fact that the interest is there and I firmly believe Tad is going to be walking through Pine Valley.” As fans know, Knight moved to LA when AMC relocated to the west coast. Moving across the country again to Connecticut is a big commitment, so my hunch is that he’ll do “drop-ins” as storyline warrants. With Cady McClain (Dixie) and Jill Larson (Opal) committed to working full-time, a little Tad could go a long way – as long as they don’t ask him to put on that chicken suit.
“We won’t,” laughs Blangiardo. Congrats!
