The Young and the Restless recently brought on Sally Sussman as headwriter, another scribe who wrote the show years back and knows its core through and through. It looks like Sony, who owns both Days of Our Lives and Y&R, might be trying the same strategy.
Carlivati was let go from GH in August of 2015 with some fan backlash and then went on to win a Writer’s Guild Award for his Port Charles stories last year. He tweeted this message when the news broke Monday.
It looks like he’s definitely looking forward to the new gig, but fans are going to have to wait about six months to see his work with so many Higley-penned DAYS episodes already in the can. Even so, it does look like a new writer with brand-new consultants are just the shot in the arm this soap needs.
