• Looks like Dixie will be Tad-less in Pine Valley for a while. In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Michael E. Knight spoke out for the first time about All My Children‘s upcoming Hulu/iTunes revival, saying that he won’t be involved in the relaunch at the time of its debut. “With me, personally, it was simply an issue of timing, period,” he explained. “I consider [AMC executive producer] Ginger Smith to be, actually, one of my oldest and dearest friends, in that industry and in life. And I had asked her for patience with me because as I like to put it, I didn’t say no, I just said, ‘I can’t do it right now.’ I love the fact that the interest is there and I firmly believe Tad is going to be walking through Pine Valley in short order at some point.”
