TV Critics Tour: ‘One Life To Live’ Going Primetime?


Beverly Hills, Calif.—There’s a possibility that ABC's 40-year-old soap opera, One Life to Live, could be spun off into a primetime version on ABC's sister station, SoapNet.

In response to questions from TV critics, Brian Frons, president, daytime, Disney-ABC Television Group, said he's had discussions with the writers for a spin-off of the soap but added the parties had not been able as yet to agree on a concept for a primetime series.

SoapNet currently carries General Hospital: Night Shift, an original series based on that daytime soap.
