Exclusive: Sean Kanan Out at General Hospital, In at The Bold and the Beautiful



                             Sean Kanan

 Another Q bites the dust! Suds vet Sean Kanan is wrapping up his role as A.J. Quartermaine on ABC's General Hospital— the character is currently in critical condition after being shot in the chest — and will head back to CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful to once again play badass Deacon Sharpe. The actor will continue working at GH through March 28, and be seen on the show for few weeks after that. He reports to B&B mid-April, with his return episode scheduled to air June 13. Kanan tells TV Guide Magazine his exit from GH was by mutual decision.

"I was utterly thrilled to be brought back to GH for the 50th anniversary and really enjoyed working with [executive producer] Frank Valentini, but I was not over the moon about the writing," Kanan says. "Doing stories about panic attacks and relish was not what I thought I'd signed up for. I feel I brought everything I could to the character yet it was obvious they weren't going to give me a great love story, which I found very disappointing."

Romantic relationships, he says, are "the bread and butter of daytime, and you can only survive on a show for so long without one. I could see the writing on the wall. I spoke with Frank and we mutually agreed that if I wasn't happy, and they could find a good way to write me out, that it was best to wrap it up."

 Kanan says he contacted B&B executive producer-head writer Bradley Bell to let him know of his upcoming availability and was quickly offered a contract to return as Deacon, the slimy, opportunistic daddy of Hope Logan (Kim Matula). The soap-hopping Deacon is also hugely popular with fans of B&B's sister soap, The Young and the Restless, where he married and boozed it up big time with Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

 "Deacon is my favorite of all the characters I've played," Kanan notes. "I started my career in daytime on GH but returning to B&B feels like I'm going home."

‘All My Children’ And ‘One Life To Live’ Producer Prospect Park Networks Files For Chapter 11


Although its multimillion-dollar legal action against ABC over seemingly shuttered licensed soaps All My Children and One Life To Live continues, Prospect Park Networks today filed for Chapter 11. The online production company made the petition for protection in federal bankruptcy court in Delaware. “PPN is optimistic that this filing will make it possible to continue to maximize the value of its assets and settlement of past liabilities,” the company said in a statement today.



“The company is optimistic about the prospects for a smooth transition into bankruptcy.” The action today leaves little room for the resurrection of All My Children and One Life To Live in their last online incarnation. After a long-awaited first season online, both soaps ceased production last August.


Today’s move does not affect the Prospect Park management and talent company Jeff Kwatinetz and ex-Walt Disney Studios president Richard Frank formed in 2008, nor will it halt the company’s broadcast and cable productions — Prospect Park currently has Wilfred on FX and Royal Pains on USA Network, with drama Salem debuting on WGN America on April 20. The filing comes just less than four months after Kwatinetz filed a 10-claim complaint against his own company and PPN as well as Boston-based investors ABRY Senior Equity IV, L.P., ABRY Investment Partnership, L.P., and ABRY Senior Equity Co-Investment Fund IV seeking a declaratory judgment over non-compete clauses in a December 31, 2012, employment agreement. That November 21 complaint was later pulled out the courts as the parties went to work on a private settlement.
