There is no feature article of the DAYS events this week but the big story is about DAYS behind the scenes. Just a brief summary:

Huge DAYS Shake-Up; Cast Cuts Ahead.

In a surprising move, former Y&R Executive Producer Edward Scott has been hired as DAYS co-Executive Producer, replacing Stephen Wyman. He reported to work on Augsut 6. Supervising Producer Roy Steinberg is also out, along with casting director Fran Brascom, who was replaced by former Y&R Casting Director Marnie Saitta.

Such a big change at the top indicated that there might be life in DAYS past 2009, when its contract expires with NBC. Corday says, "I honestly believe that NBC wants to stay with DAYS OF OUR LIVES. They're looking for a very strong show of change, faith and support from me. They believe the show could be improved, as do I.." Translation: Expect changes ahead."There is a need to, I don't to say drastically change the cast size, but the cast size is large," he concedes. "So there will be - without putting fear into their hearts - cast changes that are necessary over the next few months."
