On the heels of "Days of our Lives" replacing the head writing team of Marlene McPherson and Darrell Ray Thomas, Jr. with a new head writing team consisting of Gary Tomlin and Christopher Whitesell, TV Guide's Stephen Battaglio is reporting that part of the deal NBC signed in order to keep Matt Lauer with the network late last week could include a possible fifth hour of "The Today Show."
Finola Hughes, who has portrayed Anna Devane on "All My Children," "General Hospital" and its spin-off "General Hospital: Night Shift" over the course of nearly thirty years, has been bumped to contract status at "GH" according to executive producer Frank Valentini, who made the announcement via Twitter.
With news of Gary Tomlin and Christopher Whitesell's ascension to the top of the "Days of our Lives" writing team after the NBC daytime soap let go Marlene McPherson and Darrell Ray Thomas, Jr., less than a year after the two were hired to replace Dena Higley, Soap Opera Digest in its newest issue (issue dated April 16, 2012) is reporting that Tomlin and Whitesell has added the multiple Emmy award winning talents of veteran writer Lorraine Broderick to its new regime.
Earlier today Soap Opera Network broke the story that NBC's "Days of our Lives" has decided to end its relationship with co-head writers Marlene McPherson and Darrell Ray Thomas, Jr. The female half of the dynamic team has now spoken out against the decision by revealing that the two weren't given enough of a chance to develop the soap to where they wanted it to go thanks to network interference.
