With four soaps remaining on the air only ABC's "General Hospital" and CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" were able to eek out nominations for the 2016 Writers Guild Awards in the category of daytime drama.
On Thursday, October 20, it was announced that longtime "General Hospital" writer Michele Val Jean would be joining the Emmy Award winning writing team of CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful." Also on that day Val Jean was given the opportunity of visiting the set of the soap while they were filming so she could get a better feel of the characters and the actors.
