Lorraine Broderick Joins the New Writing Regime at Days of our Lives!

Here’s  a bit of news that might just perk up Salem!  Veteran soap scribe, Lorraine Broderick who most recently steered the final months of All My Children and came on board One Life to Live for its final hurrah as a breakdown writers, is joining newly installed ( or shall we say semi-reinstalled) head writers, Christopher Whitesell and Gary Tomlin over at Days of our Lives!

Greg Meng, the shows co-executive producer told Soap Opera Digest that he was very enthused of this new regime stating, “We are excited and look forward to the stories of romance, suspense and intrigue this new dream team plans to tell.”

Now perhaps Broderick is the missing piece that could restore some of the glory to the citizens of the beloved town of Salem.  What do you think now of the new DAYS “Dream Team” of Broderick, Whitesell and Tomlin?   And then, let us know what you think this regimes first order of business should be in cleaning up the current stories?

I’m excited! I think the stories had become puzzling and not fitting the characters in many cases. Will’s coming out has become the only bright spot on Days so if they can keep that going and redirect the other wayward tales the show will be in much better shape. Broderick sounds like a wonderful person to help them achieve success. The first thing I hope they do? Give us back true romance with root for couples! Its been frustrating to watch a pairing such as Carrie and Rafe forced upon us when the premise is for one distasteful and two… Read more »

Let’s hope it’s not too little too late. Because NBC is considering expanding “Today” to a fifth hour and the timeslot of Days is the only one that is available.

I am looking forward to better storylines. But I might also note that Lorraine Broderick has a reputation of singing the swan song for soaps.

Great news! I am upset that the current ones are leaving, but a great pro like Lorraine makes me excited for what’s to come!

I’m not terribly please with LB being added. Can’t recall exactly, but I thought I had read something not too flattering about her.

I thought the last writing team was going to return Days to its former glory. It’s like the same song, different tune with Days. Just do it!

Greg Meng says “romance, suspense, and intrigue”. Hopefully that means our core characters will be front and center. I would love to see John and Marlena in a story where they are working (and loving) together that isn’t orchestrated by Stefano. I realize that Stefano is a major part of the John Black story, but frankly I am tired of him pulling the strings of J & M’s life.

Lorraine is one who knows what she is doing. If they wind up firing her, it will be clear that Ken Corday and the folks at NBC are taking something powerful.

I am not sure what difference it will make if in fact the network is calling all the shots, but I loved Broderick’s stuff at GL. As for what they could do…end this fia.sco of Pawn and Gina.Explore Billie and Daniel ans then bring back Carly! Pair Nicole with Rafe. Bring back more Horton’s and focus on them and The Brady Family.

Yes Lorraine wrote during Guiding Light’s great years, around 1991-1992 so I hope she can help bring Days some of that great stuff.

I think Ken Corday needs to let go creatively and make way for a complete new ep!

Marlena should get posesed by the devil again! And add Susan Haskell to the cast!

I’m glad to see that Lorraine Broderick has a new gig!! I wish she were being hired as Y&R’s new head writer (and Scott Hamner and Hogan Sheffer would be FIRED!!!), but this is still great for DAYS. Hopefully, her stay at DAYS will last longer this time around!!

Yes Y&R is the soap that is needing new exec producer and writers now. It’s funny it’s the #1 soap but it’s the worst one on.

I think this a HUGE mistake! I hope Ken Corday, Greg Meng and all who make decisions reconsider this one and bring back Marlene McPherson and Darrell Ray Thomas, Jr.
