SOD: New Writing Team Takes Charge

The first script from the new writers (Gary Tomlin and Christopher Whitesell) airs July 24th.

Christie Clark says she really liked the one script of theirs that she read.

This "reboot" is much more low key than the last one. Shawn Christian says it's a seamless transition in that the new writers stay true to what's been created but they also take the story to some extraordinary places.

James Scott is a fan of the new team. He feels that Gary Tomlin not only knows the characters very well, he has lots of experience writing and producing soap operas. His understanding of the characters is comprehensive.

The new team wrote the July 27th cliffhanger. The show will be off the air for two weeks but when it returns on August 13th, "certain lives will be forever changed."

Eileen Davidson's first airdate is October 11th. Blake Berris returns August 27th. Stefano will rise from the dead and Eric Brady will return to Salem in the fall with Greg Vaughan in the role.

The new writers have no intention of dropping the gay storyline. Chandler Massey says Tomlin was the first person who came to him in February 2011 and said there were plans to make Will gay. Look for Will to get a possible love interest in the fall.

Wally Kurth and Judi Evans have both been on set taping new episodes.

Casey Deidrick is excited for everyone to see the new writers material. He says there are important and nice things coming up soon. Stay tuned!

Pick up the new issue of Soap Opera Digest to read the full article.

Thanks Kenny, I am thrilled at the spoilers for next week and now to hear that they are from TomSell is even more encouraging for after the break!

Much prefers sweevil, snarky EJ over Father Figure Fucktard Eejiot.

This certainly makes it sound pretty concrete that Tom/Sell have a big roll in next week's shows, including the cliffhanger. I like that SC mentions they 'stay true' to what's been created...it doesn't appear we're in for a jarring difference come August. :)

And confirmation that GV is playing Eric = awesome!

Thanks Kenny!

Excited for the return of the Phoenix! :D Will be nice to have Stefano, E.J., and Kristen on the canvas together. Now, if only they can redeem Chad, if they do indeed plan on keeping him.

We actually got all this information last month. It's not concrete because there's still conflicting information out there from other people.

I don't give this show another year. But then with the state of NBC, who know.

Singing Tomlin's praises?! Are you kidding me, Days!

Gary Tomlin really knows the characters? Maybe he'll know them better as a writer than as a producer. Not excited.

Please write 4 Bryan Dattilo, Give him a love interest.

I am interested to see the changes. The changes will tell me whether or not to tune out. Right now I will only watch clips of Days on you tube, I will not watch a full show as their is to much I do not want to see. I thanks all those lovely people that have taken the time to clip for us as it is a pleasure to watch only what I want to see and not what I don't. Hopeful Tomlin/Sell will do the characters justice! and couples too!

I remember CC mentioning TomSell wrote her last scenes. What else have I missed? What is the conflicting info?

I agree besides they were there long enough to have the right input and ensure they were setting the right tone for their own work.

I honestly do not expect some big flip on the head from the show; this is supposed to be a natural transition not a reboot ala last year.

I completely missed the part about Stefano. I really feel like I should sue TomSell and MarDar for wasting the last year and a half of my soap life.

Didn't MarDar start on a similar note? There was some relative positivity and now look where we are.....

I'm kind of excited. We need a change. Not sure if this is the right change though.
