“Dynasty’s” first iteration aired on ABC from January 12, 1981 until May 11, 1989. After 8 years, ABC/Disney cancelled it. But an inside source told us that “Dynasty 2015” is about to make a comeback on A&E , a cable channel owned by–you guessed it–ABC/Disney.
We at LTAS have to wonder why ABC/Disney doesn’t just air the new “Dynasty 2015” in primetime on ABC?
In a recent, related development, TNT has decided to pull the plug on their reboot of “Dallas,” which fans were loving. The incomparable Shawn Brady whom we have interviewed here on LTAS,
one of the leaders of the influential and important group, Soap Fans United, is now working on convincing another network to pick up “Dallas”.
Please sign these petitions, have your friends and family sign it and pass it on to Save Dallas. The first one is intended to convince TNT to rectify their mistake and keep on airing “Dallas”. The second one is to demonstrate to ABC, CBS, NBC, to pick it up. Here is a link to the first:
and here is a link to the second:
Now, back to “Dynasty,” We at LTAS have criticized ABC/Disney a lot, it’s true–always with good reason, we feel. Nevertheless, we are generous of spirit and believe in reinforcing good behavior, so: THANK YOU, ABC/DISNEY/A&E FOR MAKING SOAP FANS HAPPY AND DOING SOMETHING SO VERY RIGHT!
Hey, ABC/Disney–wanna know something else you can do that fans would love and that would also be so very right? LTAS will tell you: until you return “All My Children” (AMC) and “One Life to Live” (OLTL) to the 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. time slots, respectively, on ABC, you can show the last “x” amount of televised months of both AMC and OLTL in those 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. time slots on ABC! We know it will take a while to work out all the legal and financial kinks, get all the actors’ contracts in order, etc., so we are willing to be patient. Because, as we all know now, the rights to AMC and OLTL have reverted back to ABC from Prospect Park, and there is no reason you can’t restart both soaps.
We at LTAS think the rest of AMC’s and OLTL’s fans would join us in waiting patiently until we get to find out who JR ended up shooting and who Alison Perkins’ was reading the final draft of “One Life to Live” to!
Remember two things, soap fans, you have a voice, and an important one, at that. Use it! And two, as always, stay soapy!
