Ken Corday, executive producer of Days of our Lives, officially announced today that Marlene McPherson (formerly Marlene Clark Poulter) and Darrell Ray Thomas have been named the head writing team on NBC’s longest running scripted program, effective immediately.  The duo replace Dena Higley in this position.

Corday noted, “McPherson and Thomas will bring Days of our Lives back to its core values by telling exciting stories with a fresh and contemporary approach including beloved characters.”

As previously reported earlier today, McPherson and Thomas were former Associate Head Writers, under James Reilly at Passions up through to the end of the series in 2008.  So, just how will these two influence story and character?  Stay tuned.

Now, it’s your turn to be a backseat head writer! What stories or characters would you tell McPherson and Thomas to fix first? Let us know.

I know its a different show, but i believe Y&R needs a better writing staff. However, I do love MAB as Head Writer and EP. I think Scott Hamner and Hogan Sheffer need to go. Also i think for y&r to be great again, they need to hire back the writers and staff that left due to Lynn Marie Latham. Also I would love to see Josh Griffith back again. Please feel free to follow me on Twitter @joesalesmedia

I’d tell the new head writers of DOOL, to bring back Bo and Carly as a couple. They don’t always have to be blissfully happy…but I would like to see them together. I’d also tell them to work on the Dimera’s. How many times can Stefano create chaos in a Brady’s life and then walk away without any consequences. Focus more on everyday life stories and give up the crazy and insane stories like amnesia and cloning etc

Tell Will and Epic Love Story Were He Runs Off To L.A. and begins to fall in love and Chad follows behind him to confess his love for him and the two return to Salem in love and the guy follows behind them and cause problems for the Salem 21st Century Supercouple!!!!

I know the storyline will include Will with someone else but PLEASE let Chad be conflicted and jealous, even if he is straight. That kind of honest emotion would be profound.

That’s easy – write a real and complicated love story for EJ and Sami. It’s the best one at their fingertips and it would get a lot of fans to start watching again.

YAYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!! Im so happy-maybe finally we can get a lovely, wonderful and romantic EJAMI story with NO INTERLOPERS. EJAMI are ratings gold and Im so happy that Higley is gone. DAYS has had awful writing the past year or two and hasnt shown any signs of improvement. They have been last in ratings for the past 7 weeks and maybe now we can have EJAMI please! Im going to tune in again especially now that the wonderful JACK IS BACK!

Not sure, because is it going to be another attempt to relive JER’s writing? I’m not a fan of his style of writing personally and the way Ken Corday have made negative comments of this style of writing and to bring someone who wrote during Days in the 90s and the whole Passions story-lines was STUPID, singing mermaids, devil doll, witches, etc…..and we wonder why soaps are being cancelled. They could go with some very gifted writers Sherri Anderson, Pam Long, Jeff Ryder (ie). Soaps are so far away from what made them good RELATIONSHIPS, RATHER FAMILY, FRIENDS, OR COUPLES.… Read more »

If they learned from JER they might be worth watching. I’ve always wondered why people talked so negative of JER’s writing. Yeah, it was wayyyyyyy beyond belief, but as I recall, it was under JER that the ratings were at it’s highest.

Please…do NOT write ANY gay storyline for Days of Our Lives. There needs to be a soap drama that is FREE of this “in your face” propaganda.

Paula
Guest

There should be a gay storyline but who? Every soap has at least a gay storyline. It is an everyday life and might as well include this lifestyle on Days of coming out of the closet, dealing with homophic, dating and eventually & actually being in love.

As long as Days doesn’t get preachy or political with a gay storyline, I don’t see how it’s propaganda at all. If told right, you won’t even realize you’re watching gay characters. It just won’t matter.

Just because “every other soap opera” has a gay storyline, that doesn’t mean Days of Our Lives has to have one. It takes courage to refrain from such topics. Days of Our Lives was founded on Psalm 23:6. (Read Ken Corday’s book.) I believe Days can refrain and remain successful. I have read information about rewrites now that there are new writers. I hope the rewrites include removing any and all gay storylines. As for Will Horton being gay, he is the LAST character who should be gay. Somebody in the younger generation of Hortons ought to carry the tourch… Read more »

Please fix Bo and Hope! If we are going back to core values and Days heydey, we need to fix the mess that Bo’s affair caused, and bring back the true love story of Bo and Hope! Then fix Jack and Jennifer. Explain Bo’s recent behavior (since his break-up with Carly). Maybe he is having visions that something will happen to Hope, and he is scared to get too close. Then have him work proactively to change things. Maybe Jack was threatened to stay away from Jennifer, and is now back to reclaim his love. Finally, let’s get some young… Read more »

Wow, where does one start?? There are so many issues that need to be addrssed in this show. I think for starters all the current storylines are totally way off course from what viewers really want to see, that makes them feel good watching it. I believe that they have amazing talented actors, but the stories, couples, plot points etc are all so so wrong, old fashioned, recycled, predictable. Couples that work and have modern storyline potential are: Ejami, Bricole, Chill, State, Bope, Lexie & Abe. I want this show to start writing REAL stories, that viewers can relate to,… Read more »

Please give us the back romance, adventure, and true everlasting love not these cheap tawdry affairs I am so tired of the has been interlopers such as Bo’s coming back. Give us back decent characters that we can respect the characters that we cheered for. Let’s keep the the good with morals and the bad guys without. Shades of grey is expected in both however the good guys well Bo at least is lacking the morals the made him a hero.

There are quite a few stories that I would love to see Days tell. Getting EJ and Sami back on track is the most important. They have the most epic love story Days has ever seen. We just need to get back to it. In turn, this should also lead to Nicole winning back Brady’s heart. The other story I am dying to see, like it’s making me go crazy because there is so much potential is Chad and Will. I would love to see them discovering that they have feelings for one another and then fighting these feelings. There… Read more »

Why do people want EJ and Sami together? They aren’t good together. He’s a rapist and a sociopath. She reacts to everything someone does to her. It’s like fire and oil. Kaboom!!!! Every time they say hello to each other.

Please Please stop letting the DiMera’s get by with everything. NO NO DO NOT PUT EJ AND SAMI TOGETHER. I think Rafe and Sami make a great love story. Fire Jack as soon as he gets back. He had stupid story lines. Let Melanie and Dario get together, keep the bantering between them going, I love it. Let Nicole be lonely the rest of her life just like Viv in fact she can be the new Viv.

Time to deal with the elephant in the room and have it come out that his behavior is unprofessional and disgusting. Let it come out that his behavior is chronic, and someone finally gets him for this. Jack is actually being held and his rescue makes for a big story.

ITA with everything you just said! Jack was a great flawed, messed up character who I ended up really liking with Jen. She brought out the fun, silly side of him that I adored. They butchered my Bo and I am so glad that CC is leaving the show again. She was a hopeless replacement for Hope in the 90’s and an even dumber decision to bring her back. I want Bo to find out he had a tumor and made him pretend to love Carly! That way, I can forgive his stupidity and move back on with Hope and… Read more »

I really miss the great love stories Days is known for. The Jack and Jennifer days. They were the best couple and I don’t understand why Days wants to destroy them and their relationship all the time. The Daniel/Jennifer thing is just not getting it. Bring back Steve and Kayla, Shane and Kimberly. Do put Victor and Maggie together. I’m sick to death of Sami/ EJ/ Nicole/ and Brady. Bring us back the stories that had us hanging on until the next day! I still have the Jack and Jen story on video. Never erased it. I loved those days!!… Read more »

I think the previous writing Team at Days has SUCKED big time over the last 5 years. With a few other SOAPS out of the picture, I think DOOL and Corday have an opportunity here. I would reconcile the Super Couple – Jack (Matt Ashford) and Jennifer(Melissa Reeves). Begin here and build some believable story lines. It really is not Rocket Science. If you need help — contact me.

I would love to see the Deveraux family get back to their normal selves, and when I say normal I mean, having Jennifer quit acting like a teenager and Abby bashing on her Dad and also having Jack and Jack Jr back so they can all resolve some issues and get on with some exciting adventures that await for this fun loving family…that’s I what I want to see..adventures and a bit of romance for the adults and Abby without them all acting out of character like the writer’s have had them be for the past six month’s!!!!

Fix Jack and Jennifer! I don’t understand why Days has been trying to destroy this power couple. They were/are one of the most popular couples on daytime and there’s still a huge fanbase for them! Theirs is a story that has spanned 20 years and it’s based on love and romance…not just sex, which there is more than enough of! Melissa Reeves and Matthew Ashford have amazing chemistry together that is hard to find…let them show that! Make her fight for him and bring back some of the angst that was there when they first got together. Then bring on… Read more »

Give Jack back his newspaper and Matt the respect he deserves as an actor. Jack and Jenn belong together but Jenn will need to win back his heart and trust after once again betraying their love and marriage for the first pulse with abs she laid her eyes on. I want to see story lines that will take advantage of the amazing talents of Matthew Ashford and a love story between Jack and Jennifer worthy of the awesome chemistry between the two actors. I also want to see the littlest Deveraux come back to town to develop a relationship with… Read more »

Excuse me, Jennifer is at fault for Jack’s behavior? Since when? He left her. Took off to “find himself”, didn’t communicate with her for years and she’s supposed to just let him do whatever he wants and accept him back. I don’t think Jack needs to forgive Jennifer. If he wants her back, he needs to prove to her that he’s reformed and stick to his commitment to his family. Not take off when things get hard or he starts feeling the wonderlust.

Yolanda

Lyn, How long have you been watching the show?

Lyn
Guest
Lyn

I’ve been watching since 1965, when the show started. So I really do understand what has happened through the years with Jack and Jennifer. The phrase “he plays her like a well-tuned violin” comes to mind, and as a strings player, I understand that, too.

Lyn
Guest
Lyn

I’ve been watching DOOL since the first episode, Yolanda. I just have a problem with men who leave their wives and the wives take them back, which is Jack’s pattern. It shows women as needy and weak and promotes the idea of men being given carte blanche to go to whatever they want. Not a good family value at all.

Sorry, Yolanda and all. It looked like the first reply didn’t post so I wrote the other one. Didn’t mean to be overeager!

Keep Sami & Rafe together and let them be happy. Have EJ and Stefano get busted and off to jail. Have Victor and Maggie have some happiness. There is no chemistry with Daniel and Jennifer. Put Daniel and Carly together. Let Nicole be unhappy for a while. Let EJ lose his kids for awhile. See Viv backing no reason for her to be on the show. Have Chad find out what kind a man his father is. Let Taylor find out what all EJ has done. EJ raped Sami why would she want to be with him.

Lyn
Guest
Lyn

I think Daniel and Jen have plenty of chemistry together. At least if I really believed in “chemistry” between two fictional people on a TV show I’d think that. Since I don’t, and I’m more than tired of Carly, also more than tired of Jack the lame (sorry his behavior toward his family is unacceptable) I like Daniel and Jen together.

A
Guest

I can’t even begin to see what anyone likes about Daniel/Jennifer. It feels so very forced, and I can’t believe how Jennifer’s just hunky dory moving on. I think her character’s taking a bigger hit here than Jack’s. Jack’s got issues (part of why I love him), but he’s been nothing but faithful to Jennifer when it comes to loving her and only her. I don’t buy the walkabout thing after all J&J went through in the 2nd run to be together. So he left in 93 because he felt guilty and unworthy. That was a long, long time ago.… Read more »

Lyn
Guest

Jennifer tried to talk to Jack. There’s no response. She’s given him plenty of time to respond. I liked it when they got back together before because he seemed to have really shaped up from the wonderlust filled boy that he had been, but taking off “to find himself” is just what the old Jack would have done, so it’s seems Jack’s gone back to type. That’s not being a man. That’s not taking responsibility for your life and caring for your family. Jen’s done what she could to talk to him since he left with no response from him.… Read more »

Can you please, please, please, bring back more Hortons, the family this show was based upon from Day 1 and today there are hardly any Hortons on the show at all. Ridiculous! Also, please get rid of Dario–he’s annoying and serves no purpose. Having a possible romance between him and Melanie is ridiculous! You should have kept Nathan and had him and Melanie get together–it’s what everyone was waiting for once she realized Philip had cheated on her. But for some odd (and inexplicable) reason, you got rid of both of her romantic interests (Philip and Nathan) and bring on… Read more »

Give EJ & Sami a real love story, and please, for the love of all that is Holy, bring back Tony & Anna and Shane & Kimberly.

We need to see them working through their problems and working their way back to each other.

EJ and Sami can’t have a love story if EJ is in jail where he belongs. Besides, as I have noted before they are a horrible pairing. There is nothing that brings them together other than their kids, and despite the common “they need to be together for the kids” tripe that I keep hearing, that’s not a good reason for a couple to stay together. Especially if one of them is a sociopath, a bully, a rapist, a criminal and a philanderer. All of which EJ is. I’m not giving Sami a pass. She’s a very flawed person, But… Read more »

Sami is every single one of those things you call EJ so … And there definitely hasn’t been any growth considering she shot a sleeping man in the head a few months ago. That’s fine though. You have your opinion and I’ll have mine.

Lyn
Guest
Lyn

Yeah. She shot a sleeping man in the head. The man who raped her, lied to her, kidnapped her child. . .If you read my post, I nowhere claim perfection for Sami. She reacts without forethought to everything that happens to her. Unlike, EJ however, she recognizes and admits to her faults and is actually doing much better than when she was younger. Should Sami have shot EJ? No. On the other hand, he shouldn’t be running around as a free man in the first place.

Guest

Bring Anna back, too. Along with Tony/Andre. They bring so much to the show! I’ll mitigate my statements about Jack by saying that if he comes back and he and Jen get back together, there has to be a really good story in place, not just some wonderlust that took him over. That’s been too much of a pattern with Jack through the years and he should be growing up by now. He had a wife and family and they were supposed to stand for commitment, true love, family values and all that. Just having him wander back into Salem… Read more »

Charles Shaughnessy and Patsy Pease need to be brought back as Kim & Shane. They were MAGICAL!!!! The few scenes they had last year proved they still have it. Bryan Datillo, Christie Clark and Patrick Muldoon need to come back as well. They need to ditch new boring characters and focus on the vets. Bradys, Hortons, Dimeras, Kirikias, Family is what this show was about so that’s what it needs to be again. Remember the 80’s and early 90’s?

Please bring back Shane and Kim. Charles Shaughnessy is great to watch. Shane makes a great couterpoint/partner to Rafe, they worked well together.

I think if the ratings were huge back in the 1980’s then they need to go back to story lines more similar to those. Appealing to the younger crowd is obviously not working, there are too many other things for them to watch, like reality TV. Those of us who rushed home to watch the Days we had taped loved the romance, the angst , and the glamour of the soaps. We also liked the sense of family that it brought.

The main thing I want to see is a good story for Jack and Jennifer to reunite.

All these vets coming back are great for all the viewers older than 40, but, it will not bring in the new viewers. Days would have done fine without Marlena & John – the writers just SUCKED!

A gay storyline is great if it’s well done, but I fear the writers will continue their finger wagging at the expense of what soap opera fans watch for: pure entertainment. If Corday wants the new writers to take us back to the show’s “core values” as he’s said, he’s going in an odd direction.

Days Of Our Lives

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.
