The Latest Plan to Save 'Days of our Lives'
On September 6, the latest head writing team at Days of our Lives begins airing. This go around, Dena Higley is paired with rising star Ryan Quan, which means it's time for the new new new new new (you get it) plan to says Days!
In this new issue of Soap Opera Digest, executive producer Ken Corday talks about what went wrong after the show’s well-received 50th anniversary celebration last November, how they’re fixing it (again), and the "synergy" and "symbiosis" that the new co-head writing team of Higley and Quan (Quigley?) brings to the table.
"After Christmas and January, it had really started to take a left turn,"Corday tells the magazine. "I was very concerned about the lack of romance on the show, the lack of focus on the show, and I made my concerns known."
"I have been waiting to do this interview for about six months because we wrote the shows coming up and taped them six months ago, and I knew then I’d be very excited about the show because it is reset," Corday says. "Dena and Ryan have done a wonderful job of resetting it and getting it out of that dark place it was in."
