One Life To Live Spin-Off in the Works

Move over, General Hospital: Nightshift!

SoapNet is making plans to spin-off nighttime versions of One Life To Live and, possibly, The Young and The Restless.

ABC Daytime President Brian Frons told reporters at a One Life To Live press conference this week that he and the network have been in talks to develop a primetime spin-off for the series.

Nothing firm has been settled, but rumored ideas include taking police detective John McBain (Michael Easton) and following him on a case. Sounds pretty cool, no?

SoapNet is also considering the idea of spin-off characters from The Young and The Restless, though no ground work for that has been laid yet. We'll have more news on this possibility as it breaks.
