Production is to begin next month with the soaps' creator, Agnes Nixon, serving as a consultant.
"We thank the loyal audience and new generation of fans of both shows who have demonstrated that passion and exciting story lines are not just reserved for traditional television," Kwatinetz and Frank said in a joint statement Monday. "Their enduring support encouraged us to move forward each and every day. We look forward to sharing more details including our launch air date and additional specifics in the coming weeks."
