Susan Lucci going west with 'All My Children'

NEW YORK (AP) -September 30, 2009

The leading lady of the durable daytime drama says she has decided to keep playing oft-wed diva Erica Kane, just as she has since "All My Children" premiered in 1970.

ABC said Wednesday that most of the New York-based cast will reconvene at the new L.A. shooting site, where production begins in early January.

The main exception is Ray MacDonnell, is a charter cast member, like Lucci. He is retiring from his role as Dr. Joe Martin.

"All My Children" will still be set in the fictional town of Pine Valley. ABC says production is moving west to save money and enhance the show's production values.
