Noel Maxam, whose name has been attached to “Days of our Lives” since at least August 2007 when he joined the show as a director and later as a supervising producer, recently updated his LinkedIn profile to indicate he’s a consulting producer at the daytime drama series.

According to the update, Maxam has been in the role since at least April 2023. In fact, at the time, he linked to a report on the soap opera receiving a two-year pickup at Peacock.

In addition to directing episodes of “Days of our Lives” and serving as supervising producer from August 2008-October 2011, Maxam was the show’s co-executive producer from June 2011-February 2012, although he continued on as a director in the years since his exit in that position. In 2021, Maxam directed at least two episodes of the spinoff series “Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem” (Chapter One). He followed that up by directing the show’s first Christmas movie, “Days of our Lives: A Very Salem Christmas.”

“Days of our Lives,” its spinoff series and the holiday movie, can all be streamed anytime on Peacock.

Maxam got his start in daytime television as an associate writer at “As The World Turns” from January 1995-November 1997. Soon after, he began directing episodes of “The Young and the Restless,” continuing in that role until 2008. He returned to the director’s chair at the soap opera in October 2011, departing in March 2019. Later that year, he became the show’s interim supervising producer, a position which lasted for just under three months. Maxam was also a freelance director at “General Hospital” throughout 2013.
