Hope springs eternal
Posted November 11, 2013on:
Need some more motivation to task today?
Take a look at these two items:
A great blog post!
And these words from Cady
“If you aren’t hearing anything about the ending of AMC as we know it, it’s really out of shock.
I am also trying to allow PP to have the moment to contact all the actors and explain what is and has been going on with AMC,
and then gather themselves to try and explain it all to you, the fans. I can confirm what Debbie Morgan has shared already, that we were given assurances that we would be continuing with the series and then were very recently contacted and told that, with great regret, AMC won’t be going back online this year, or in this particular incarnation. Certainly hope springs eternal that we will yet again, spring from the dead. I do feel confident in sharing my opinion that PP and all “the powers that be” involved in making AMC and OLTL truly loved the shows and did their utmost to make continuing them possible.
The premiere in NYC was one of the most exciting moments I have had the privilege to be a part of in my career. I am not privy to the behind the scenes decisions, however. Like you, I can only experience those choices second hand and guess at the reasons why this is happening now.
Instead of going into the “What Went Wrong” question, I think I’d rather focus on the gratitude I feel for having been asked to continue with the show. If I am still wanted as an actor on daytime, it is all because of YOU, the FANS. I am so very grateful for your support. To have had the opportunity to be a part of an innovative experience that strived to keep American soaps alive via a new medium, to be a part of the continuing fabric of your lives through daytime storytelling, and to be able to work with dear friends who I’ve known all my life was a very special experience for which I have you to thank. So THANK YOU for all the cheering, love, and support, daytime family. You’ve been AWESOME.”
Now, instead of wallowing in upset and disappointment let’s maintain the optimism that others are having and get to work!
We are going to contact our list again today.
Either send a different message or choose a different way to send a message to ABC then you chose yesterday!
Additionally, we have a few easy tweets for those of you on Twitter. (at bottom of post)
We want to get ABC the message via as many channels as possible.
Belong to other groups and/or have friends that are also AMC and OLTL fans?
Feel free to share the link to the blog with the contacts for their easy access.
We want to make sure anyone that wants to share their opinion with ABC can do so!
