Let’s encourage a pro-soap solution
Wonder what Disney’s strategy is going to be if/when they get the rights back to AMC and OLTL. Let’s reach out to Kevin Mayer, The Walt Disney EVP for Corporate Strategy/Business Development and encourage a pro-soap solution.

Hello. I am sure you have heard quite a bit regarding the soap opera cancellation issue since it was first announced well over a year ago. Now that Vicki Dummer has announced that the shows’ rights will soon revert back to Disney (January 2013) the fans are sure that there is talk of a strategy plan to not alienate the ABC viewers even more. The soap fans understand that Disney does not see these shows as a part of ABC’s Daytime plan. However, Disney owns and has connections to many other networks and entities. Please consider encouraging a strategy that would create a win-win solution so that everyone can move forward.
Thank you for your time and assistance,
