Three weeks before All My Children is scheduled to end its 41-year run on ABC, the show's longtime star, Susan Lucci, has hurled a broadside against ABC daytime chief Brian Frons. As reported in today's (Monday) New York Post , Lucci, who has played Erica Kane since the show debuted, blasted Frons in an epilogue that is being added to the paperback edition of her book, All My Life A Memoir . She wrote that following the cancellation she personally confronted Frons and told him "I think our being in this position is the result of some very bad decisions by you." Among the "bad decisions" she listed moving the show to Los Angeles from New York; installing a new head writer who came up with "subpar" scripts; and forcing out the show's creator Agnes Nixon. (Nixon herself has never suggested that she was forced out; she is returning to the daytime Drama during its fade-out in a Cameo role.) Lucci said that Frons told her that he had canceled All My Children in order to bring in a show that would be cheaper to produce. ( AMC reportedly has a budget of $50 million a year.) "An iconic show was losing out to greed," Lucci wrote. "If Brian Frons could show his bosses that he could save the network 40 percent, he could keep his job even if the rest of us lost ours."
