After all the speculation it has now become official today when Steve Kent, Executive Vice-President U.S. Programming at Sony Pictures Television making the announcement that Jill Farren Phelps has been named the new executive producer of The Young and the Restless and Josh Griffith had been named the shows new head writer!   Which means, Maria Arena Bell will no longer be in either of her previously held positions with the number one sudser and is out at the show!  Phelps and Griffith had been working on Hollywood Heights for Sony currently running on Nick at Nite.

Here below is the official press release on the new sweeping changes at the top of Y&R!

“Jill Farren Phelps has been named Executive Producer of The Young and the Restless, daytime’s number one drama, and Josh Griffith joins the series as Head Writer, it was announced today by Steve Kent, Senior Executive Vice President, U.S. Programming at Sony Pictures Television.

We are excited to have such a talented daytime veteran leading our team at ‘Y&R.’  Jill has a stellar record of success in the daytime genre,” said Kent. “We are also happy to welcome Josh back to The Young and the Restless and are looking forward to his creative input and ideas.”

“On behalf of everyone at ‘Y&R,’ we extend our sincere thanks to Emmy Award-winning Maria Bell for her contributions to the show over the last five years. We wish her the best of luck and continued success,” he added.

Phelps has been the executive producer of five daytime dramas and two prime time cable dramas: Santa Barbara, Guiding Light, Another World, One Life to Live and General Hospital, and the first season of  General Hospital Night Shift and Hollywood Heights.  As an executive producer, Phelps has been nominated for 14 Daytime Emmy Awards and has won seven times (1988–1990, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2012).

Griffith’s writing career includes  As the World Turns,  One Life to Live, Santa Barbara, Sunset Beach, General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and Hollywood Heights. He has received four Emmy Awards and four Writer’s Guild Awards.

The Young and the Restless has been the number one rated daytime drama for more than 23 years and is in its 39th season.  The show is broadcast weekdays (12:30-1:30 PM; 11:00 AM-12:00 Noon, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network and is produced by Bell Dramatic Serial Company, in association with Sony Pictures Television. ”

So soapers, what do you think of the official sweeping changes at the top with Maria Arena Bell out on two counts, executive producer and head writer, and being replaced by Jill Farren Phelps and Josh Griffith’s? What do you think it means for the future of Y&R? Are you hopeful? Or, not hopeful?  Weigh-in!

God help us. Although this begs the question…did Bill Bell, Jr have to fire his own wife, or was that a Sony/CBS thing?

Anyway, not looking forward to this. Katherine or Victor will likely be murdered, all female characters will be ruined (not hard at this point, but still), and every child will be killed off in some silly manner. We’ll never get to see Johnny, Charlie, Matilda, or Moses grow up. And poor Genie Francis! She can’t escape JFP, can she?

No, he is married to her! Brad Bell with B&B is MAB’s brother in law, I think this means they have once again kicked the Bells out. I get the impression Sony has taken over.

Chrissy i just sit down and watched almost 7 episodes and it was difficult to say the least, this show needs sooo much help. I am not a fan of JFP but it has become the Phyllis show and plot lines dropped aging kids within 3 months 10 years or more . I will start watching again when she takes over and it has not improved then I shall say goodbye how can you miss something you do not even recognize anymore .

I am not exactly happy about this news, but it makes me think that Sony wants to keep Y&R around for a while.

That being said, any of us who care about the integrity of Y&R should not sit quietly if JFP decides to get rid of all our veterans! With the media and social networking at our fingertips these days there are ways to be heard.

I agree with you both, I do not watch Y and R on a regular basis the new characters do not engage me. The cast at GH loved JFP, and I can not blame some of the slow stuff solely on her. The new duo at GH have done some good things. Mostly bringing back old favorites. Others not so good.

So maybe JFP can do this on Y and R also

The beginning of the end. Glad MAB is gone, but having JFP in will be Jeanne Cooper forced to retire, Eric Braeden Back burnered or Killed off in a magor who dun it, Nikki leaving town with some billionare, Jack turning Jabot over to the mob. Genineve made insane, (actually she is somewhat), Paul Back burnered, Faith and John killed off.Iames Franco as Ricky’s twin obsessed with Victoria. I think they just killed the show.

You know what, JFP might not have been the best exec producer GH has ever had, but holy toledo does Y&R need some new blood up in there! Stories are so bad and stale! MAB was driving that show into the ground, pass the torch to someone else and see what they bring. I’m all for it.

There is no reason to believe that Jill has changed. She has repeated her same pattern on at least three shows of which I am aware. Why should YR be any different. Those of us who are familiar with her garbage are not jumping the gun we are bracing for the inevitable crash impact!

Geez. She trashes every soap she works on, and she never seems to learn anything from her mistakes–and they think she’s the right person to fix Y&R? Admittedly, the show is a mess, but replacing MAB with JFP is going from frying pan to fire. It might be a different kind of awful, but awful it still will be–and Jill does the kind of damage that CAN’T be fixed. Lordy, lordy, lordy. All the people out there they could have chosen, if they finally decided MAB had to go–and this is who they come up with? (Josh Griffith I have… Read more »

I would like to see Genie Francis back on GH.. But she must have a contact with the Y&R ..For how long I don’t know exactly..I think maybe a 2-3 year contract … Maybe when her contract is up maybe she will consider going back on GH…Who do you like Luke with Anna, Tracy, or Laura(if she comes back on GH) ????????

She ruined Another World by killing off Frankie Frame. After that disaster, the show went down hill. I just recently read the 1st thing she said to Vicki W. (Rachel on A.W.), “Oh you’re the actress I can’t fire.” With her track record, 3 soaps will be left.

So true, she ruined AW which was my favorite soap!

Robbyrob
Guest

JFP has serious women issues. Frankie was not only killed off but her murder was shown rather graphically for the FULL hour! Phelps made beloved GH heroine Laura Spencer end up drooling in a loony bin after making up that she was molested….which completely made no sense of GH history. GH’s beloved Emily was by her boyfriends twin brother and later killed off.

Bill Bell is turning over in his grave! I dont care how many Emmys GH won while she was there it wasnt due to her. She was incompetent, inept and just plain dumb! She ignored and rewrote history. In concert with Bryan Frons and Bob Guza she turned GH into the Sopranos. She practiced rampant age discrimination among the cast. She turned off many key actors and they left the show. She was a disaster. And from what Ive read from fans of OLTL and AW she did the same things at those shows! I thought we were rid of… Read more »

Sony tossed the Joker and then pulled the death card. The show is doomed. Josh Griffith is a good writer but JFP is a bulldozer that mows down anything positive about a show. This lady has no respect for female characters or for a shows history. The suits at Sony don’t have a clue.

I am taking a wait and she attitude as I am not familiar with any of the writing the new people have done, but hopefully “new blood” will bring the Y & R back in the ratings.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result…..Well, giving JFP a show to lead and expecting her to have fantastic results is completely insane!! How many shows does she have to run into the ground before TPTB get it? Quit recycling people from one show to the next and get some new blood in there. It’s time for things to change in the soap genre.

I am not an MAB fan so I am not bothered by her leaving the show. I don’t know anything about this Phelps woman but, based on the comments I have read, her past performance doesn’t sound great. Frankly, I would have preferred a return to Ed Scott or someone else associated with the great past of this show. If that was not an option, how about someone completely new to daytime?

She allows history to be thrown out the door. She allows violence and darkness to permeate EVERY area of whatever she produces. EVERY SOAP SHE HAS BEEN IN CHARGE OF IS KAPUT….can her track record get any worse? GH escaped barely from her total disregard for that shows brilliant history and legacy.

You are absolutely right, Robbyrob on all counts!! This has to be the worst decision made since Brian Frons and his cronies dismantled All My Children and One Life to Live.

Is JFP as bad as Chris Goutman, EP of the now defunct ATWT. After seeing the horrible end of ATWT, I can’t comprehend anyone being worse than CG in daytime soaps history. And, I hope the new HW, JF is not anyhting like Jean Passanante, HW of former saop ATWT. CG and JP have to be the worst EP-HW pair in daytime history for the way they completely destroyed ATWT.

Just what is the hiring process for an EP of the soaps. Do they have to submit some form of a storyboard, express ideas in advance for characters or is it simply a traditional interview. It’s already been questioned here as to why the same EP’s and Writer’s cycle through these shows. It’s astounding that lessons are just never learnt – the same EP’s that have been involved in major show disasters be it ratings or actual cancellations just move to another show time and time again.

These responses crack me up; so predictable. Everyone has been bemoaning and skewering MAB for how long and now there’s someone new coming in and she will be the next target of the haters (and supposed fans) of Y&R.

For those of you saying/thinking, “She can’t do/be worse than MAB, ” be very careful. That’s what many of us said about Latham, and look what happened. JFP knows how to produce, but her idea of how to interact with cast members is what’s likely to kill Y&R. Look for at least one major firing within the first few months (she likes to come in and put fear in the hearts of the cast by firing somebody who should be untouchable, so that everyone else falls into line; my bet would be Melody Thomas Scott), as well as people Jill… Read more »

It seems clear that MAB was not listening to TPTB and to some of the old-timers on Y&R who felt that there were too many characters on the canvass. Indeed there are, and I’d rather see them go (Anita, Chelsea, the ridiculous Jeffrey, Carmine) than some long timers. Also some of the new hires have been busts (Tucker-not dynamic, Harmony–no magic to her character; Sarge-what’s his purpose?, Genie Francis–could we give her a consistent character?) Yes, I’m afraid that JFP will do major damage to this show–did TPTB know of her reputation? Do they want her to gut the show?… Read more »

Maybe now GH can return to Number 1 with JFP destroying Y/R. She destroyed GH… and now it is back to its former glory. She ruined our beloved Laura Spencer and sent GH to a ratings dive.
She is a monster… hopefully the cast and crew will petition to get her out. The only bright spot:
maybe we can get our Genie back on GH! Genie is now royally screwed on YR.. JFP is so jealous of her
beauty, success, and presence.

Kim Delaney’s Lifetime Movie ‘Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’ Drops Trailer

Coming up as part of Lifetime’s Ripped from the Headlines true crime series of movies, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, is now slated to premiere next month on February 20th at 8 pm ET.

General Hospital’s Kim Delaney (Jackie Templeton) stars in the film, executive produced by Deborah Norville. in which she portrays, Mari Gilbert, a mother who becomes alarmed when her daughter Shannan (Katharine Isabelle) is MIA and doesn’t return home. Knowing her daughter sometimes works as an escort, Mari fears the worst.

As those who know the true life story, Mari’s attempt to find her daughter and the subsequent investigation leads to a chilling discovery – the bodies of several other missing women.

Photo: Lifetime

In the real life story, the remains of the women were uncovered accidentally as police searched for Shannan, who went missing after visiting a client, whom she met on Craigslist, in the gated community of Oak Beach on Long Island, and then fleeing the man’s home.   However, police believe that Mari’s unwavering fight to find her daughter which led to finding the other women is not how Shannan ultimately disappeared.

While the case has yet to be solved the film shares, “Though the search for the serial killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon.”

PEOPLE exclusively dropped the trailer over the weekend.  Make sure to check it out.

Once the trailer was released, Delaney shared on her Twitter account: “Amazing director @StanleyMBrooks Thank you so much, Stan!Very special producers, cast and crew. An important story!”

So will you be watching Kim in her star turn in the upcoming Lifetime movie event? Comment below.

And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
