'Days of our Lives' Executive Producer Ken Corday Releases Statement on New Writers

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — "Days of our Lives" Executive Producer Ken Corday has just released an official statement confirming our earlier reports that Dena Higley is out as Head Writer and Marlene Clark Poulter (aka: Marlene McPherson) and Darrell Ray Thomas, Jr. are in as Co-Head Writers. According to Corday the change in writing regimes is "effective immediately."

"McPherson and Thomas will bring 'Days of our Lives' back to its core values by telling exciting stories with a fresh and contemporary approach including beloved characters," Corday said.

"Days of our Lives" tapes approximately two months in advance, so any writing changes will not hit the screen until late summer/early Fall.
