The entertainment industry took a significant beating with the novel coronavirus pandemic causing activities to shut down in the meantime. However, for Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, work is about to return in earnest.

Earlier this week, Deadline reported that ABC Studios is in the process of developing "Pine Valley," a daytime drama series that will serve as a sequel for its famous "All My Children" project.

"Pine Valley" will come with notable input from TV show host Kelly Ripa and her husband, Mark Consuelos. Both were famous characters on "All My Children," and they will be executive producing the new show alongside Andrew Stearn.

The new series will revolve around a young journalist who goes to the city of Pine Valley to expose some of its darkest secrets. However, the journalist soon becomes entangled in a bitter feud between two prominent families.

As fans of "All My Children" can probably guess, the new show is set in the same fictional city where the old one was staged. It is unclear whether "Pine Valley" will feature any original "All My Children" cast members.

Deadline reported that the series would feature a new generation of characters. However, the news source added that some old favorites could come in. With Ripa and Consuelos executive producing, they could make cameos and be instrumental in bringing some old faces.

Despite not being interested, Consuelos and Ripa soon formed a relationship, and the rest is history.

Ripa and Consuelos famously met while working on "All My Children," and they have been married since then. The pair will definitely find some nostalgia working on the new project.

Speaking with the Huffington Post in 2014, Consuelos famously recounted his first encounter with the woman who would later become his wife. He said in part:

"I thought she was adorable, hot and sexy and all that stuff. But I was very focused -- I didn't really think I had a chance with her, so I wasn't really focused on that."

The actor added that he had been focusing on landing the role, as Ripa was already a series regular. Despite not being interested, Consuelos and Ripa soon formed a relationship, and the rest is history.

The pair finally tied the knot in 1996 and have been married since then. They are also parents to three lovely children – Lola, Michael, and Joaquin. The news of "Pine Valley" is coming following a reunion between Ripa and Consuelos as well.

Earlier this week, the couple confirmed that they had been apart for four months due to work obligations. With so many responsibilities to take care of, Ripa and Consuelos are one of those Hollywood couples who always manage to get everything done.
