Brian Frons, president, Daytime, Disney/ABC Television Group announced today that Lorraine Broderick has been named head writer of ABC’s Emmy Award-winning daytime drama, All My Children. This comes on the heels of reports through the weekend that this shift in the writing regime had been made, and current AMC head scribes, David Kreizman and Donna Swajeski are on their way out.

But is this move to bring in Broderick really a long term move, even though she has reportedly been given a multi-year deal? Or, is she been brought in to wrap up the series, if indeed the rumors become true, that OLTL may be the first show to go, (as its current timeslot is most desirable for the network to a launch a new fall show), and that AMC may follow six month later? Whatever the case, Broderick certainly knows All My Children and this good turn out to be a good move for story and the characters that inhabit Pine Valley.

Here is some more on Broderick’s background with All My Children from ABC’s official press release of her taking over the reins of Pine Valley.  “Broderick has long standing history with All My Children. She originally joined the show as scriptwriter and breakdown writer in 1979 under the guidance of then head writer Agnes Nixon.  In 1982 she was promoted to associate head writer, and in 1986 to the position of co-head writer. One year later she held the position of sole head writer on the show. After 12 years Broderick left to serve as co-head writer of Guiding Light, then as head writer for Another World, to return to All My Children in 1995. Following a second leave from the show, she wrote for As the World Turns” and Days of Our Lives, ABC’s Port Charles and, in 2001, as head writer of ABC’s,  One Life to Live. Following her tenure with One Life to Live, she accepted a position as a screenwriting and playwriting professor at Drexel University in Philadelphia, and in 2009 returned to All My Children as associate head writer. Broderick has won a total of four Daytime Emmy Awards for her works as head writer for All My Children.”

All My Children and ‘The Bay’ Star Eric Nelsen in the Cast of ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1883’

On Thursday, the full cast was announced for the highly-anticipated Yellowstone prequel that will bow on Paramount+ beginning on December 19th.

The Taylor Sheridan drama tells the tale of the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.

According to Deadline, in the cast is none other than The Bay’s Daytime Emmy-winner, Eric Nelsen (Daniel Garrett), who was also part of the cast of Prospect Park’s reboot of All My Children as AJ Chandler.

In 1883, look for Nelsen to take on the role of Ennis, a young, handsome cowboy who agrees to help escort a group of inexperienced men, women and children north to find a home.

The series also stars: Billy Bob Thornton, Faith Hill, Gratiela Brancusi, Sam Elliott, Stephanie Nur, and Tim McGraw to name but a few.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
