In a statement released a short time ago, Agnes Nixon, creator of both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” and a consultant at Prospect Park, has announced new head writers for both soaps. Lisa Connor and Chip Hayes have been named new co-head writers of “All My Children” and Jessica Klein and Marin Gazzaniga have been named the new co-head writers of “One Life to Live.”

It is now my pleasure to announce that the future stories involving the lives of All My Children’s beloved characters are from now on in the capable hands of the co-head writers Lisa Connor and Chip Hayes, both of whom have a long and stellar history with our program.

Lisa Connor collaborated with me on the final draft of the All My Children Twenty – Fifth Anniversary Family Album. For two years she also served as a line producer of the program and was creatively involved in plotting and writing daily episodes since 2002.

In addition to his six years as a producer on Melrose Place, Chip Hayes in 2003, became a vital member of those devising the ongoing drama of All My Children. He remains in this crucial work through its incarnation on the internet.

I agree with Prospect Park’s decision to replace the head writing team for All My Children. However, I particularly want to thank Marlene McPherson and Elizabeth Snyder for their incredibly positive dedication to the show and their constant helpful attitude during many long hours of intense work. It is greatly appreciated.


- Agnes Nixon

“We are excited for the opportunity to put the lives of our characters in the capable hands of the new writing staff,” said Prospect Park in a statement. “We appreciate their commitment to great storytelling that will build upon an already solid foundation for the residents of Llanview and Pine Valley.”

Changes to the writing staff include the appointment of Lisa Connors, currently the script editor of “All My Children,” and Chip Hayes, currently script writer of “All My Children,” to Co-Head Writers. Additionally, Jessica Klein and Marin Gazzaniga have been promoted to Co-Head Writers of “One Life To Live.” Jason Seidel will also join the writing staff of “One Life To Live.” Connor and Hayes replace the departing co-head writers Marlene McPherson at “AMC” and Elizabeth Snyder. Klein and Gazzaniga replace the already departed Susie Bedsow Horgan and Thom Racina as co-head writers at “OLTL.”

I think of the two shows, OLTL needs new writers. Only because there seems to be no real direction to any of the stories IMO. I do believe though that they have written the vets in character, I will give them that! ;)
Are you kidding!?!

I'm confused. The writing seems just fine to me. Way too many incidents of the word "shit" being uttered by most characters on both shows, but I'm satisfied with the writing. It's not clear why this was necessary.
I'm so sick of shit! There are other curse words.
