All My Children’s Cady McClain Talks Prospect Park
In the wake of the news that All My Children is not migrating online with Prospect Park, many actors have voiced their opinions on the matter via social media. Cady McClain (Dixie) is one of those actors who took to her Facebook page to blast the production company for laying the blame on the unions.
After defending the need for unions, Cady went on to call Prospect Park out in other areas: “As you can see, there are much bigger issues at hand than the unions demanding ‘too much,’ a claim which is patently untrue. The truth is, PP was not able to get their financing and they are trying to save face by sending blame elsewhere.”
Cady laid out several ideas for how Prospect Park could have produced the soaps with less money while still keeping them union – smaller casts and crews, shorter contracts, longer scenes – and ended with a message to the fans: “All that said, I’m really sorry for you guys, the incredible, loyal fans of the soaps, who put in so many years only to be whipsawed at the end. Your attention and support is worth more and you should’ve been treated better.”
