Corday Productions, Inc. and Sony Pictures have partnered up with Sourcebooks, a leader in independent publishing, to launch a line of books based on NBC Daytime’s Days of our Lives. These books will feature stories of the characters fans have been watching on their screens for over 40 years as well as a backstory to the history of the show. The deal was backed by Jeff Herman of Jeff Herman Agency.

“Community is at the heart of the future publishing enterprise,” said Dominique Raccah, publisher of Sourcebooks. “We’re incredibly excited to be working with Ken Corday, Corday Productions, and Sony Pictures to create a line of books, and more, directly for the millions of fans that are the Days of Our Lives community.”

“I am thrilled to be working on such an amazing project that will give our loyal viewers the ability to understand my family’s journey through theatre, radio, and television to the creation of Days of our Lives,” said Ken Corday, Executive Producer of Days of our Lives. “These books go one step further into revealing what has made this show, its actors, and its characters thrive and survive for 44 years. Not only will readers gain insight into behind-the-scenes stories, but they will also learn the history behind this staple of a show.”

May 2010 will bring upon the launch of Days of our Lives Publications with The Days of our Lives: The Untold Story of One Family’s Dream and the True History of The Days of our Lives. Written by Ken Corday, this is, “the first insider memoir of the family that conceived the show, believed in it, and sometimes seemed to live it along with millions of viewers as they struggled against all odds to create and produce one of the most successful and enduring TV shows in history.”

By fall of 2010, Sourcebooks will continue to provide a series of novels on the fictional characters of Salem to coincide with the show’s 45th anniversary. With exclusive web content to accommodate the line of books, fans will now get a glimpse as to what makes Days of our Lives a continued staple in daytime television.

LOL. I think there might be a little more details about websites and backstory books, but the Memoir and the anniversary book were announced.
