Cady McCain and The Prospect Deal...


Cady McCain took to facebook to address some of the things she's been hearing about the Cyber-deal. Thought you'd like to read some of it.. interesting. Read it in FULL on Cady's FB Page
Okay, I just have to say that the news that "AMC didn't move on because of actor negotiations" is just totally wrong. First of all, when I was there at the very end, TONS of actors were asking each other, "have you been contacted? Has ANYBODY been contacted?" The answer was always, "No. What's going on? Why haven't they contacted any of us?"

Now comes the real question, why? Why weren't they asked? Is it true that PP was negotiating only with Lucci and waiting until that deal was done to contact anyone else? I do not know. She did not share that info with anyone as far as I know. I did hear through the grapevine (after the show ended) that PP did indeed contact her. Make of that what you will.

Is it true that PP showed preference for OLTL from the very beginning? Yes, I do know that because OLTL had higher ratings, PP felt they had a better bet with them. Other than that, I cannot guess at anything else, other than that PP only has so much money to go around, and this internet gamble is a huge one. My feeling is, when OLTL goes to the internet, it will have a only a FEW months to prove itself as a viable show. If it doesn't pull the ratings PP needs it to... it will not withstand the chopping block. If it DOES do well in the ratings, then there is a CHANCE that AMC will be pulled back into the mix.

Sounds like good business sense to me. Sorry to the AMC fans, but I think PP is making the right move.

Which is why I plan to start watching OLTL when it moves. I have never watched one episode so I am excited to start! Will they do it everyday for an hour? Does anyone know about the format?

I just read on SoapNetwork that PP is still in 'talks' with the union.
Is OLTL still planning on airing on time??
