    Apparently they had already planned to take a hiatus in production but are doing it a week early now. They have enough episodes to air until September, at which time they hope to have the dispute resolved.

    I hope it happens. PP may have made some missteps but I'd really like to see them succeed with this.

    Just to be clear, two episodes per week will still be delivered for AMC and OLTL through September:

    Though the shows will still post two episodes per week they have halted production. In a release by The OnLine Network about their dispute with the I.A.T.S.E they stated…

    "As a result of a dispute with the I.A.T.S.E., The OnLine Network is beginning a long-planned hiatus for both 'All My Children' and 'One Life To Live' tomorrow instead of June 17. The hiatus is scheduled to end on August 12 pending resolution of this labor issue. Right now we have 40 episodes of each show ready to post through September, and if we can resolve this issue by August, we can get back into the studio on time so audiences will enjoy uninterrupted postings of their favorite shows.

    We believe we have met all contract requirements with I.A.T.S.E, and as an internet start-up, and per our contract with the I.A., we cannot afford, and our business model cannot sustain, traditional broadcast rates.

    The writers, directors, actors and rest of crew have been supportive of the shows and our success. Both 'One Life To Live' and 'All My Children' consistently earn top rankings on both Hulu and iTunes since launch just over a month ago. The popularity of the shows is matched by the continued passion and excitement from the fans. We are committed to these shows, and to the nearly 300 jobs they produce, thus we are exploring every legal and logistical option to maintain our production schedule."
