DAYS Head Writer Ron Carlivati Teases: "There Are Big Payoffs For The Stories That Have Been Set Up, And There’s A Lot Of Exciting Stuff I’m Bringing Into It!"

Next week. all eyes will be on the iconic Days of our Lives,as Daytime Emmy-Award winning head scribe, Ron Carlivati’s first episodes begin to air starting with the Wednesday July 19th episode of the NBC soap opera.

In his exclusive interview in Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Carlivati talks about his plans for Salem, and since the show is already six months ahead how he is already plotting into early 2018.

But as to what fans can expect when they tune-in to DAYS with the all new writing regime which also features Sheri Anderson Thomas and Ryan Quan, Carlivati notes you will definitely see some changes and excitement in the current storylines airing, and those building to some exciting new ones under his creative watch.  When discussing the murder of Deimos and who will be revealed to be the killer, Ron notes: “When I came in, he had already been murdered, so I took that as a point of inspiration. It had wrapped up fairly fast with a killer that made sense, but I proposed a different killer that prolonged the story, and pulled more people in and impacted the love stories on the canvas a little more.”

When talking about the recent on-screen arrival of Angelica Deveraux back on the canvas, Carlivati revealed: “That was another one where I was able to take that in a new direction, That is a really fun story, which has some larger than life elements and some humor and some classic soap opera conventions to it. You’ll see from my very first episode what I mean by that.”

In terms of the vets. Carlivati said he understands the importance of the the long-standing central characters and how they play into the legacy of the series.  He  will write for the characters of: John and Marlena, Patch and Kayla, Hope, and the DiMeras.  He also noted that Lucas will also have major story.  The scribe let’s fans know to tune-in now to DAYS as a lot will happen: “There are big payoffs for the stories that have been set up. There’s a lot of exciting stuff that I’m bringing into it,”

So, excited to see how Carlivati’s material plays out over the coming months?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I’m interested and will be tuning in. Let’s just hope Days avoids yet another in a now laughable and seemingly never-ending series of “The All New Days” promotional campaigns, wherein Ken Corday pinkie swears that this time it’s going to be really, really great….

Gawd I miss—
””That is a really fun story, which has some larger than life elements and some humor and some classic soap opera conventions to it. ””

I miss his subtle humor, he gave me many really good laughs!! And many hard drama twist and turns surprises!

Jean & Shelly, not one laugh not even a chuckle and never a surprise, sigh..

I envy the fans of Days for having Ron…

note; Ron grew up reading and still reads Agatha Christie, every single mystery ,,

I am looking forward to RC writing. So far he sounds like a huge improvement on Higley’s craptastic contrived misuse of characters’ history.

At this point there is no where to go but up– I watched for years and I have never seen the show sink as low as it has — it is so bad right now I am missing the days of diamonds in elephant statues—so I am open to anything Ron will bring to the table– I am going with a wait and see approach– I’ve gotten excited about writing changes before only to see things get worse– hopefully this will be a good fit– just a shame we had to wait 6 months— to get here.

Not at all excited about the new Days stories that will begin airing on July 19, 2017. I just hope Ron C does not screw up the show the way Josh G did.

I am really counting down the days until Ron’s writing airs. Can’t wait to see what happens starting this Wednesday!

All I want is for Deimos to have faked his death and returns with better development by RC. He had a lot of potential before the scourge of Higley!

Patrick
Guest

that would be a marvel… it could happen. course, i’d like it if Xander and Deimos were father and son. the nuKiriakis reign.

Val
Guest
Val

When Deimos lied to the family and especially Nicole that Xander was dead and he secretly sent him to Greece, I really believed then it was because Xander is his son. Deimos even visited Xander while he was in prison for the Theresa thing, when no one else gave a damn, said he reminded him of himself at that age. So Ron could easily pick up that intriguing thread again!

I am excited to see where he takes this show! Cannot wait for him to bring Eve back to the canvas… also I am excited to see him write for Eileen Davidson, fingers crossed that she will play Kristen! I think Ron will do wonders for Kristen. Would love to see Tony be revealed to be alive also and we can have more Dimeras! Also, please bring back the Horton family! I know many are not fans of the Hernandez family, but I would totally accept a return of momma Hernandez if Sandra Santiago were in that role!

Yes, bring back the Hortons and do something with Eli, Val and Julie. Give Kate a bigger storyline. She is a character who will benefit from R.C.’s writing.

Hopeful. I went to Salem when roads to Oakdale and Pine Valley were closed to us, but became disappointed by turns the show took. I will give it another try but I hope RC does not get too wacky and weird in his plots like it got to be on GH. That kind of turned me off to Port Charles.

Pay off on current sl’s? Problem is I don’t care about ANY of the current SL’s. I really don’t care who killed Deimos & I certainly don’t want the reveal dragged out. It could be Col. Mustard in the library for all I care. Wrapping up SL’s that have already bored me long enough is a mistake. He should have just started with a Daysaster that wiped the slate clean & moved on. I’m all for more family interaction and connections but the last thing this show (or any show) needs is geriatric drama. Focusing on 50-something (Stayla, Hope)- 70-something… Read more »

I pray he will bring back Jack Deveraux!!!

Also on my wishlist: Carrie, Austin, Billie, Celeste, and Charlotte Ross’ Eve (can’t stand Kassie de Paiva).

I hope Ron will write the show well. He is JER Jr., so I am hoping for the JER 3.0 we were promised but didn’t get with MarDar in 2011.

I think I’ll wait till September & tune in for a few days to see how he brings Will back (but an evil twin, doppelganger as he suggests in SOD? Zzzzzzz. How many times have we already seen that?)

And Will’s return is only temporary. A proverbial band aid. It’s doubtful I’ll even watch all 13 weeks of that SL.

DAYS hasn’t confirmed Chandler’s length of stay, Ray C. Many have speculated 13 weeks and created rumors, but most, if not all, long-term contracts have cycles lasting 13 weeks. If Chandler’s contract started out as 13 weeks, there’s a chance for it to be extended another 13 weeks. And Ron didn’t suggest Chandler will be playing an evil twin or doppelganger. He merely stated that that could be what happens, but he also stated he was aware that killing Will was a mistake and he’d like to fix that. Chandler Massey will undoubtedly be playing Will because Eileen Davidson will… Read more »

Where was it stated that Will’s return was only temporary ? Allison Sweeny was that I know, but never read anything like that about Chandler ?

I do not believe for one second that Deimos is dead.I think he is doing a Stephano,he is in hiding somewhere.He just wants everyone in Salem to believe he is dead.I bet he will show up somewhere in a couple of weeks.

I just watched today’s episode, Tuesday July 18. Carlivati definitely had a big influence on that even though Higley and Quan were credited as head writers. Everything that went down in the Brady pub between Adrienne, Jen, Angelica and later Patch and Justin. The Abby scenes had a fresh intensity to them. Dario was arrogant and tough. Everything down to the more intense music and the ‘Dr. Evans’ surprise at the end. No one can tell me Carlivati didn’t have a huge hand in this episode and I was thrilled to see the changes already being effective.

DAYS Cady McClain & Rob Scott Wilson Talk Being Recasts, All My Children Reboot, Future of Cin & Jennifer’s Bitch-Slap

Current Days of our Lives and former All My Children reboot stars, Cady McClain (Jennifer, Days, Ex-Dixie, AMC) and Rob Scott Wilson (Ben, Days, Ex-Pete AMC) chat with Michael Fairman in an enlightening and exclusive conversation for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.

McClain, who recently took over the role of Days of our Lives beloved heroine Jennifer Horton from mainstay Melissa Reeves (who chose to stay with her family in Nashville during Covid-19 thus forcing the series to recast the role for now) talks about stepping into the key part of the Salem canvas, plus the recent Jennifer/Kate fight over Jack (Matthew Ashford), and how the legacy series is coping with production during Covid-19.

Cady is no stranger to be a recast.  She was the second actress to play Dixie on ABC’s All My Children, as well as the second actress to play Rosanna on As the World Turns, and she had previously taken over the role of Kelly Andrews on The Young and the Restless.

Rob, talks about landing the role of Ben and being a recast, and in an emotional moment, reveals how he credits the opportunity to the late producer, Lisa de Cazotte. Wilson also shares his hopes for his Salem alter-ego who is struggling to move on with his life after the supposed death of his wife, Ciara.

The actor also opens up on if DAYS decided to recast the role of Ciara, since Victoria Konefal is not presently with the NBC soap full-time, how he would feel about it and thus the future of Cin.

Photo: JPI

Both Cady and Rob first appeared together in Prospect Park’s online revival of All My Children. In this interview, they discuss how they had high hopes for the continuation of the series, how it ultimately fizzled, and what it was like to be a part of the then, groundbreaking first, for a daytime drama series along with One Life to Live.

In addition, Cady gives the viewer insight on how she runs lines for both DAYS and GH at home with her real-life husband, Jon Lindstrom (Kevin and Ryan, GH), while Rob talks about his recent storyline where Ben was kidnapped and tortured by a vengeful Eve (Kassie DePavia) and much more.

Check out the full chat with Cady and Rob below. Then weigh-in: How would you feel if there was a Ciara recast? What are your hopes for the holidays for Jennifer?

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
