AMC: Getting a Studio Downgrade?

Will AMC See a Studio Downgrade in '09?

Submitted by Jamey Giddens on December 26, 2008 - 6:17pm.
First the paycuts, now a possibly less than fabulicious locale for Lucci and Co.? According to Soap Opera Digest's "Stuff We Know (And Shouldn't Tell You)" feature "word is circulating" that All My Childen could be vacating its expensive Manhattan studio for a more cost effective locale. This would be the latest attempt in the struggling soap's continuing effort to trim costs. Great, that's all we need, another soap diva sweating her balls off somewhere in New England.

I love how AMC is now the official bastard child of ABC Daytime. You can tell Frons doesn't give a damn about this show.

I was thinking they may occupy space in Edge of Night's old studio, until someone mentioned that Screen Gemse/EUE's facilities are also located in Manhatten and that ABC is pretty much trying to move them the hell out of there.

So, since OLTL's studio is leaking and instead of OLTL and AMC sharing space, OLTL is pretty much taking over AMC's studio and AMC is getting kicked out. I love this.

AMC is SOOOO gonna be GL circa 2005-Early 2008. Small sets, everyone living at the Valley \View or Myrtle's boarding house. LOL.

Hopefully they won't end up shooting outside. Maybe they will just move to another studio that's not as expensive to rent... they do rent the studios, yes?

So when did AMC become the red headed stepchild of ABCD instead of OLTL?

Isn't AMC in the ABC building?? Where ABC News is, Good Morning America, the View... ?

I think AMC and OLTL are in the same building with some ABC Daytime execs and that's it. But I'm not sure.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they are. I recall reading about that several times in the past.

Regardless, AMC has the worst production values of any soap already, and their sets are bigtime el-cheapo. I think I'd prefer a park.

That's why you see a lot of AMC people pop up on The View at times....

I thought OLTL taped somewhere else though...... :unsure:

IMO it's JHC and Frons fault. They need to watch their budget.
