SOD interviews Ken Corday in new issue

In the new issue of SOD on sale tomorrow, there is an interview with Ken Corday about the state of the show.

Among the topics covered are:

- The state of the show as a whole. Corday shares that he's excited that the show is doing well overall, and that the network is "thrilled" as well. Morale is up among the actors.

- What's they're taping now. "There will be a lot more airtime for certain characters like Sami/EJ, a lot more of Nicole." Corday also mentions Daniel, Eric, Brady, Rafe and Jordan. He then says with the Kristen story wrapped up, the show can "breathe a little bit into new areas".

- Drake's status. He's not taping right now. "There is a very good chance he will come back and have beats", but for now he's not taping. Corday goes on to praise the character and say he hopes he's featured again soon. SOD then presses him on whose decision it was...

- Marlena. She'll be involved with Sami and Eric, since she's "very involved" with what's going on in their lives.

- Hope. Bo is not coming back at present. Corday mentions "Sami, Hope and Jennifer" as the strong women of Salem and says they need to be seen more.

- Bo. Corday says there were discussions with Peter and describes that an agreement was not reached.

- Chandler and Camila's exits. Corday is not bringing in replacements. JJ and Theresa will be featured, and Rafe and Jordan will as well. But Nick, Sonny and Will will be involved in a story in the meantime.

- The tape schedule. Corday says it is difficult, but then he describes a big mystery storyline that's coming up. (ie, the storyline is about a mystery.)

- Corday is optimistic about hitting the 50th anniversary.

- SOD asks him if awards mean something now that he's won one. In a lengthy answer, he says yes.

Be sure to check out SOD for more details about every one of these items, and a few extras. SOD doesn't let him get away with anything in this interview!

Thanks Ellie. I just do not understand the Drake situation at all. They won't say he's not with the show, just that he is not taping.

Thanks Ellie. Still nothing there I want to tune in for. no mention of my favs. :(

I do hope for the show's sake, they will hit the 50th anniversary. :)

Thanks again.

More EJ and Sami scares me. As a Nicole fan, "a lot more Nicole" scares me because I know they are going to throw her under the bus for somebody else. Rafe/Jordan could be interesting. More JJ/Theresa/Nick/Will/Sonny isn't bad. Still no John. And it doesn't really sound like Marlena is going to have story either outside of Sami/Eric. And any time Daniel is mentioned I cringe.

I really don't like Sami's name mentioned in the same category as Hope and Jennifer. Something about that doesn't seem right to me, especially since Sami isn't supposed to be a "good" girl.

After Eileen's exit, there better be some REALLY good stuff going on for me to even consider tuning in. Because, other than a few small changes, this sounds exactly like last Fall. And last Fall was terrible.

No mention of my Kayla, either, mirage. I share your disappointment.

I just wish that they would have involved Marlena all this time in Sami and Eric's life.....seriously....she's been around but not around if you know what I mean...case in point...Sami's bail hearing....

It does look like from what they are filming now...(November sweeps or so) Ejami will be getting more screen time....which I already suspected as their wedding or non wedding whatever it turns out to be will likely take place around October or so....he didn't really say that Kristen's departure was going to lead to more air time for EJ/Sami did he? Good!

I would have loved for SOD to mention something about Bryan....it's strange that they didn't take the opportunity to ask him but they asked him about Drake? . Hmmmm....

So from what I gather...is the December 'mystery' going to be that Kristen is 'killed' and somehow there is a who killed Kristen storyline? I can see so many people gunning for her when the truth about Eric comes out.....you have Brady, Nicole, Marlena, maybe EJ if Sami leaves him do to what his sister did, then you got Eric himself, Roman maybe? It seems like the mystery could be tied to whatever happens to Kristen....then we know of those lookalikes....who knows.

This makes it sound like Drake's absence is temporary (however long that is).

But, it's probably my J&M loving heart that's reading between the lines when there is no between the lines.

I don't want more Sami/EJ.

I do want more Nicole, but I won't get my hopes up. Like I said in the other thread, airtime doesn't equal story. Nicole shuffling papers every week is a waste of Ari Zucker's talent.

The mention of her name with Hope/Jen leads me to believe that again she will turn and blame Ej for something.....maybe Eric's situation with Kristen is just too much for Sami to bear and blasts Ej for being a Dimera and fears that no matter what he'll end up being just like Stefano or Kristen.....I think that the Ejami will see after NOvember is not going to be the lovey dovey Ejami we see now....I can see the wedding not taking place and Sami running out of the Dimansion blaming Ej and the Dimeras for all her families problems. If you read and take a slice of this Corday interview and the Fairman one where he pretty much compared Ejami to the Godfather couple.....you see what might be coming...and in terms of screen time...Ejami have gotten the most screen time when they've been at odds with one another...fighting and not loving...so that also makes sense.

This doesn't sound too bad.

I'll just say as an Ejami fan, I don't want them on everyday. I don't want anyone on everyday. What I would rather see for Ejami, as opposed to just more airtime, is an actual couple centric story.

I want Kristen to go out with a bang, but I hope that's not what they've written as Kristen's exit. If they're leaving the door open for her to come back like it sounds, then we know Kristen wouldn't really be dead, and then it would just be a (poor) copy of the last time she was written off the show. If it really is a murder mystery, then I'd prefer that Kristen be actually, legitimately dead.

I wonder if the mystery will turn out to be Bo's death/disappearance? Patsy Pease is coming back for some November episodes, so maybe Kim returns for Bo's funeral or for some tragedy related to Bo. (Granted, Kim might just be returning for Thanksgiving.) And perhaps Hope's new storyline is connected to some Bo-related tragedy? (I'd love to see a Hope/Vargas storyline where Vargas uses his underworld contacts to help Hope discover what happened to Bo.)

It's also interesting that he doesn't mention Kim or Shane. Justin and Adrienne also didn't get a mention. If the writers don't have another story planned for them after all the great angst they've have been having lately, they're all fools. Justin and Adrienne are the ONLY interesting part about EJ and Sami's current story, imo.

It's also almost comical how Corday dances around the fact that Hope has no story. Still no Peter Reckell. That's FINE, just DO something with his character so Hope can have some movement on the canvas! This whole "absentee" husband/father thing is the slow death of Bo Brady's character.

I agree. I'm sick of people coming back from the dead. It's a tired soap cliché. I hope they have something more creative for Kristen's exit, and I hope it's dramatic as hell. And it better involve Marlena.

I agree. Justin and Adrienne have been the best part of this whole umbrella story and yet it looks like they stop writing for them afterwards. That's just crap. Corday is an idiot. Why I hate this man right now lol. Why end something that was actually interesting for a change, instead reverting back to the same crap as usual. It makes no sense. Idiots.
