Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are developing a prime-time version of “All My Children.”
Amateur soap opera stars are teaming up for the “Pine Valley” project, according to The Wrap.
The feature film “All My Children” originally ran on ABC between 1970-2011. It had a brief restart on The Online Network in 2013.
According to the report, the version led by Ripa-Consuelos would tell the story of a young journalist with a secret agenda to “expose the dark and deadly history of Pine Valley only to get involved in a conflict between the Kane and Santos families.”

Both Ripa and Consuelos had roles in the original “All My Children”. Ripa played Hayley Vaughan from 1990-2002, and her real-life husband played Mateo Santos Sr. from 1995-2002. They both credit the show with a career start.
Ripa reflected on Hayley’s role when she and Consuelos participated in Entertainment Weekly’s #UnitedAtHome series with other members of the “All My Children” cast to raise awareness for coronavirus amelioration in May.
“We weren’t like everyone else on this panel – everyone else had jobs and careers and were professional actors,” she said in advance. “I really moved to New York and worked at the Toy Fair and auditioned on a whim. I initially gave up shooting at other people, because [that was] my side is shaking. “
