Days Of Our Lives


Days of our Lives’ Co-Executive Producer Albert Alarr Investigated for Misconduct

An internal investigation was launched back in March of this year from allegations made against Days of our Lives’ co-executive producer and director, Albert Alarr.

According to Deadline, the reported nine-week investigation was set-off by a round of layoffs at the soap opera and one female former employee who alleged that women had been disproportionally impacted by the cuts and were not receiving equal pay on the show.  In the staff reduction, seven women who were contract players were laid off. Of them, five actresses were let go or went to recurring status and two departed on their own, with one leaving due to her experience working on the soap. Only one male actor was left go.  DAYS also has only one regular female director in their five-day work week, three males, and one other female as part of a part-time directing team rotation.

The internal investigation was conducted by Sony Pictures Television, who is the distributor of DAYS, and involved 30-40 individuals, mostly women. Alarr, who has been with the Corday Productions soap since 2003, was promoted to co-executive producer back in 2015.

Multiple insiders reportedly told the investigation that since his ascent to power, Alarr had become abusive and humiliated people on set or behind the scenes. Alarr has been accused of publicly bullying one actor, and allegedly making inappropriate sexualized comments to the staff and the cast, leaving one actress in tears.  In the report, one staff member shared on the toxic work environment that Alarr has allegedly been, “fostering to a frat house, with college boys-style sexualized remarks about women normalized as being par for the course while working on the show.”

Since DAYS nor Corday Productions has an HR department for anyone to file complaints with, Sony Human Resources held two Zoom calls with cast and crew for a ‘Spotlight on Respect’ training webinar, explaining to all involved what constitutes sexual harassment and how to respond in certain situations.  According to the report, Alarr was present on the calls making those who had filed complaints very uncomfortable.

During the investigation, Alarr admitted to some of the allegations.  The full report was completed by Sony TV and handed over to Corday Productions. In a statement to Deadline, Corday Productions issued: “Corday Productions engaged Sony Pictures Television, which distributes Days of our Lives, to conduct an impartial investigation into this matter. After a two-month investigation, the independent investigator produced a report with its findings. Based on those findings, Corday Productions has taken a series of actions designed to ensure a safe and respectful work environment.”

The upshot thus far from the report is that Alarr was issued a warning and was asked to undergo training.  He still maintains his position at the show as co-executive producer and director.  In recent weeks, Alarr has been said to not have been as present on the set as much. However, many believe that has more to do with keeping scripts generated during the writer’s strike, then because of the misconduct investigation.

One employee reportedly shared on the work environment at DAYS, “Nobody should treat people like this. In this day and age for men to be treating women like this, to take away their voices and treat them like they don’t matter and they’re second-class citizens, is just appalling.”

Who the Hell does he think he is? Harvey Weinstein??

He should be fired!

I agree 100% — totally unacceptable!

Please fire him now! The fine cast of Days of our Lives deserve a healthy, safe and respectful work environment! This is totally unacceptable!

He should be gone! There is no reason to keep him around and create a more toxic environment. Ken Corday needs to step up and fire him! It’s 2023 for God’s sake!





It’s up to Corday Productions, (the show’s producer) his employer. Peacock only pays Sony, the distributor for the rights to show DAYS on their platform.

He should be fired. I wouldn’t want to work in an environment that he created. He sounds toxic.

Sounds like a toxic work environment, I’d be hesitant to work there if I was an actor. Seems like it’d be best for the morale of the show to part ways with him.

Surprised Corday hasn’t let him go. I guess Corday cares little about the direction of the show after all these years.

I don’t think Ken Corday ever wanted the job. He just inherited it from his parents.

Between him, Corday & the idiot head writer the shoe isn’t worthy of supporting anymore.

A written warning is fine for the failure to do basic job duties & all, but when it comes to any type of sexual misconduct/speech & gender targeting, the female actors/staff deserve better. Once his comments came out of his mouth the damage was done. I feel like, all too often, males in the position of power over females don’t realize the feelings of violation that females experience, & it’s not feelings easily gotten over, particularly when they have to continuously be exposed to such a source. Do better, Ken. For all the females who, at minimum, make you very rich-fire him.

He needs to go!?!

Fire him

Mr. Alarr, Should be Terminated! I’m 73 y/o, I’ve been a Loyal Fan since I was 15. I’ve been married for 43 Years, My Husband became addicted to Days when We Married. It’s Illegal for Women to be Mistreated in The Workplace! We don’t want to Lose Our Characters, that We Love. If We Lose Days, NBC WILL LOSE THEIR PEACOCK SUBSCRIBERS. Please Hear Your Fans, WE MATTER! Thank You and Peace!

Wow!!! This is totally UNACCEPATABLE!!! I have been a DOOL for almost 40 years and have never experienced such absurdity!!! The DOOL cast deserves much better treatment and the utmost respect!!! That jerk needs a reality check!!!

Here’s a welcome blast from the past! Coming up on Days of our Lives, look for the return of Adam Caine who reprises his role as Susan Banks’ beloved former boyfriend and husband, Edmund Crumb.

It has been 25 years since Adam played the role of Edmund, as he was only on the long-running soap opera for four memorable months.

Previously, DAYS viewers first saw Caine play the whimsical Edmund Crumb alongside Eileen Davidson’s original version of Susan. Together, they created some of the more hilarious romance segments ever on a soap opera. Eventually, Edmund and Susan married in April of 1998.  The couple moved back to Edmund’s home country of England to live and that is the last we have seen of him, that is until now!

So, what do you think will happen when Edmund reappears on Days of our Lives? Will he be reunited with Susan Banks, now played by Stacy Haiduk? Comment below.

Jen Lilley Signs Off at Days of our Lives: “Playing Jeanne Theresa Donovan Off and On for the last 10 Years Has Taught Me So Much About Empathy and Grace”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jen Lilley will wrap her short-term run as Theresa Donovan. Lilley came back to reprise her role to a be a part of the on-screen memorial for Victor Kiriakis, and to honor one of her her all-time favorite scene partners, the late John Aniston.

While Lilley explained in interviews with the press, that she gave the series a 3 to 4 week window of time she would be available to reprise the role, she noted the long-running soap opera wrote more episodes and story for the character; thus the part will be turned over to another actress for the next leg of Theresa’s return story.

Meanwhile, through the years, Lilley came under fire over her run on DAYS being a devout Christian, and taking on the role of the troublemaking Theresa.  She fired back in one interview, “Why should I play a role like this,’ you know? That’s been something I’ve been asked over and over again, by Christians, like,‘How can you be a Christian and play this role?’ And the truth of the matter is that from a human perspective, Theresa’s kind of a horrible person, but from a God perspective, she’s exactly who Christ came and died for.”

With her final episode streaming on Peacock on Friday, September 22nd, Lilley took to her Instagram to share her sentiments on her Salem journey over the years.

Jen shared: “Last week of me exploring this girl’s shenanigans on screen. Playing Jeanne Theresa Donovan off and on for the last 10 years has taught me so much about empathy and grace. I have enjoyed every moment of her hilarious sass and ferocity, layered with brokenness. To the cast and crew at @dayspeacock, I love you forever. You’re my family. And to the best fans a girl could ask or hope for: remember there is no pit so deep you could ever find yourself in where God’s love cannot find you still. You are never beyond redemption. You are called by grace and marked with love. Thank you for supporting me on this decade long journey. #Days #RIPJohnAniston #ripvictorkiriakis #DOOL”

No word yet if in the future, and with Lilley’s busy filming schedule (once the SAG-AFTRA and writers strikes are resolved) for Great American Family movies and other projects, if she would be available to return to DAYS should the show decide to write for the character.

So, are you sad to see Jen exit the canvas as Theresa? Curious just who and how will take over her role? There have been plenty of online rumors that a certain actress currently on the show is taking over the part. Comment below.
