Days makes good people do crap work.

Yeesh, sorry AMC fans. McPherson is totally inept at storytelling. I'm shocked she was hired after such a brief and disastrous stint at DAYS.
ETA: Apparently this is just a rumor for now. Here's the full story:
According to sources, Prospect Park is very high on former Days of Our Lives head writer Marlene McPherson for their All My Children continuation. McPherson was allegedly thisclose to getting the head writer position at One Life to Live. However, PP decided Susie Bedsow Horgan and Thom Racina would make a better fit for that sudser's reboot.
The buzz is McPherson will be one of the two head writers of the new All My Children, working closely with series creator Agnes Nixon. Prospect Park is actively looking for a co-head writer for the project.http://daytimeconfidential.zap2it.com/2013/01/13/rumor-report-marlene-mcpherson-to-write-all-my-children-prospect-park-searching-for-co-he
I liked her pre-show ideas on paper. Everyone knows that Days problems go far beyond a writing regime. She could be alot better without Corday and the NBC execs getting in the way.
