When we reported that Marlene McPherson (pictured right, with former “DAYS” co-head writer Darrell Ray Thomas) had been hired on as head writer of Prospect Park’s version of “All My children” back on January 23, it was unclear at the time as to whether she would be joined by a co-head writer. Soap Opera Network has since learned that it’ll be a “Days of our Lives” reunion of sorts for “AMC” as McPherson will be joined by Elizabeth Snyder, who was an Associate Head Writer at “DAYS” from 2011-2012.
The Writers Guild of America have announced the nominations for the 2013 Writers Guild Awards. In the Daytime Drama category, “Days Of Our Lives,” “One Life To Live,” and “The Young and The Restless” were nominated. Winners will be determined on February 17, 2013.
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) – “Days of our Lives” makes massive changes to its writing staff.
Breakdown writer Victor Gialanella and scripts writers Pete T. Rich, Roger Schroeder, Nancy Williams Watt and Lacey Dyer have been let go – all of them joined under the previous writing regime. Joining “DAYS” is breakdown Dave Ryan, and scripts writers Melissa Salmons and Janet Iacobuzio.
Over at “The Young and The Restless,” Jeff Beldner has joined as a breakdown writer. Beldner was at “All My Children” (1989 – 1998, 2001- 2011) and “As The World Turns” (1998-2001).
