Report Contract Talks: NBC Looking For DAYS To Roll Back To Traditional Soap Production Model!

NBC is looking for Sony Pictures Television and Days of our Lives to change course in their production model, which currently has the show shooting episodes almost six months ahead of air as part of the ongoing contract talks between the entities for the beloved soap’s renewal.  Now whether that point can be hammered out in DAYS new deal with the network remains to be seen.

But Tuesday, according to a source reporting to Daytime Confidential’s Jamey Giddens, “The current production model doesn’t really give NBC the chance to make notes, or for DAYS to fix story and casting issues that might impact ratings.”

However, NBC’s requests are just the things that DAYS had to change in order for it to shore up budgets and remain on the air for several network pick-ups, by using cost-cutting measures to produce the shows at a quicker pace ahead of air.

With DAYS coming off a very successful 50th anniversary run in November through to the beginning of 2016,and up in viewership from the previous year, it is more than likely that an agreement will be reached by both sides in the very near future.

So, do you hope a deal can be reached which increases DAYS budget to be able to deliver the episodes anywhere between 3 to 6 weeks of taping, like the other network daytime dramas? Would you like to see that move made so casting changes that aren’t working, or storylines that are not striking a chord, can be gotten out of faster,  or do you hope that things can stay the way they are in order for DAYS to just stay on the air, and continue the lives of the residents of Salem? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

DAYS must make the move to shoot 3-6 weeks like the other soaps.
It makes sense to stay alive. Otherwise, we might have another character talking to an elephant for 6 months. Just do that then.
This production change would only help DAYS in the years to come.

Even shooting 2-3 months in advance is so much better than now. That crazy elephant story, ha!

I have always said something along the lines of what you said—if a story isn’t working, it takes a good amount of time to fix it and by that time, viewers are ticked off and they either fast forward through many scenes or they switch the channel. By having the show taping just a few weeks or so ahead of the actual air date would help.

I hope not. I still believe that NBC or ABC could mimic Prospect Park and create two low budgets scripted soaps and fans will eat them up. Fill that slot between 2:00 and 3:00 (EST) with soaps. Put people to work. Give fans what they want.

Maybe they should stop trying to shove Ava and the ratchet Hernandez clan down our throats.

This show has SUCKED for at least 7 months now.

I respect NBC’s point and it has been frustrating in the past when a storyline or casting choice couldn’t be “fixed” for several months. I also think the surprises that other soaps can do- like bringing back actors or a sudden death, etc.re more challenging to keep under wraps because the soap tapes so far ahead. With that said, I do not want Days to start looking like Guiding Light did in its finals years. Hopefully, a happy medium can be reached. The ratings are higher and the buzz is positive. The show finally has emerged since the loss of… Read more »

Guiding Light looked better in its new production model just as it was getting the axe. At least GL got to have exterior shoots and never have the actors be stuck in dim-lit studio sets 100% of the time.

Dean_Morgan
Guest
Dean_Morgan

I agree GL did start looking better toward the end of show’s run. I liked how OLTL would miz exterior shots and studio..Bold does that as well. Production wise I see why Corday and Sony tape so far ahead..perhaps more $$ can be given for production if NBC wants them to return to the old taping schedule. I am sure contract salaries are a way to save costs, but it would most likely end in fave actors and characters leaving the soap.

Days has to do this so they can fix story lines according to ratings and fan feed back. They made many mistakes that need fixing. They loose fans because it takes them so long to fix problems.

I remember being at a fan event in 2010 where OLTL, ATWT and AMC actors talked about how frustrating it was to tape 3-6 weeks out, find out that a story or actor wasn’t working well, and then have the writers or producers make the necessary changes. It took too long, in these actors’ opinions, for their respective powers-that-be to “right the ship”. Still, I’d take that over months and months of an elephant statue story that is tanking, or actors that are given a chance and can’t make it work, which only result in me as a viewer feeling… Read more »

Days has been a daily snooze fest. Their constant building up to the 50th culminated in a very disappointing event. Killing people was their idea of a celebration of a much loved show. Surely characters can be written off in a better way for a 50th. The killing continued after the celebration. Characters like Sami appeared and there was a suggestion of a storyline with her but nope she disappears. Are we to believe that Hope all of a sudden shoots Stefano and with he help of another honest cop, covers it up????? We have boring beyond belief teens who… Read more »

The way I see it is if NBC wants DAYS to to go to a more traditional way of production, then NBC needs to cough up more money!

DAYS and Sony went the less traditional routine/model in order to save money because NBC has been too cheap.

DAYS has seen it’s glory. The ridiculous decisions of the current regime are basically readying it for cancellation. I think that taping 3-6 weeks ahead might help but overall the show has gone off the rails and needs to shore up or get shipped out.

For a while there, Days of Our Lives was REALLY being innovative and interesting, by having Will involved with Sonny, and Will being unfaithful with Paul and then Derrick being thrown into the mix. Before everyone attacks me for missing the gay characters, it isn’t JUST that – I also miss Paige and I thought the relationship with JJ was really sweet and it was disturbing that he got involved with Eve. NOW however, I am so sorry to say the show is a bore. The character of Belle and her husband or her relationship with Phillip, well, none of… Read more »

The young actress who plays Ciara makes me screech watching her in action. She is AWFUL. Chase not much better. And I am agreeing with you… Read more »

i think this is a great idea going back to the traditional production schedule. taping so far ahead hurts the creative state of the show and impacts ratings. if they tape only a month out they can make changes faster to things that aren’t working. last year we had to sit through nonsense for months because of the production schedule

Taping six months out wouldn’t be so much of a problem – if Corday had a clue how to get this show back on track. Every change he has made in writing teams has generated initial success only to fall off the rails again within six months or so. I’ve lost track of who was writing what, but we had the team that on the one hand, brought a lot of fan favs back, only to some of them relegated to scenery, and on the other hand, pushed new characters to the forefront too fast. We had the team that… Read more »

I would be very curious to find out how they could ever get back to the old schedule. If they just shut up shop for 5 months, do we expect the actors and CREW and editors, etc., just not to get paid for all that time? Or do we expect Sony to pay them to do nothing for 5 months… which would sink the show’s budget in a heartbeat? I guess they could put everyone on 4-day workweeks and slowly work their way back — but that’s the equivalent of giving everyone a weekly pay cut, which I’m sure wouldn’t… Read more »

So NBC drastically cuts the licensing fee, causing Days to reduce costs, cut salaries, reduce cast, change the production schedule by cutting rehearsals, filming 1.5 shows per day, sometimes making the actors films scenes from 3 shows the same day………..and NOW NBC wants Days to go back to production schedule that they had previously? LOL I would love it…..as would tons of viewers, probably the cast as well. I remember them getting 2-3 months ahead, then it was 4, 5 and now 6.

First of all, I think it is a good sign that NBC and DOOL seem to be at least negotiating and not just getting an abrupt cancellation notice. For some unknown reason that NBC does not pick up the option, I hope ABC picks up the show to pair it with “GH” instead of another talk show clunker. The suggestion of not filming so far in advance seems advantageous to the show, the writers, the casting department and the audience. If I read that a character is leaving 5-6 months in advance, it is hard for me to feel invested… Read more »

It would be best for Days to film weeks ahead and not months. And I think it would be great if they filmed outdoors in California to help save on money.

Jim Preston
Guest

I think it would be GREAT to film outdoors instead of always having absolutely everyone in that monotonous Fake Leaf Park.
But, how do you figure that by doing that they would “save” on money?? I have a feeling that soaps are getting away from doing actual outdoor scenes which I always thought added a semblance of realism to soaps. But it was always my impression that outdoor shooting was more costly.

Going back to the traditional model makes sense. I’ve never liked the fact that they film so far in advance and I’ve never been a fan of the shorter scenes that seem to a a by product of their budget conscious schedule.

yes, exactly 3-6 weeks taping ahead would probably fix a lot…get rid of Phillip, Belle, the teens that can’t act…..bring in new writers….bring in new set designers…..overhaul the whole thing again….I don’t understand that NBC can waste money on prime time shows that get cancelled after 3 or 4 episodes, but wont fix DAYS or add another 30 minute soap to the lineup……no more talk shows…no Lisa Rinna….no Oprah…no Katie….and please no housewives of whatever city/state…they have lame channels for that….leave the 3 networks alone……maybe add the game Password and a 30 minute soap…..

I do agree that Belle (or, maybe it is the way the actress portrays her) is very uninteresting and one dimensional. Pairing her with Phillip is also a snooze.
As far as the Teens on the show, good grief they are atrocious in the acting department that’s for sure.
They just need to work on getting some solid storylines on Days of our Lives and bring back Sonny onto the canvas –

This needs to happen. Shooting 6 months ahead has been such a detriment not being able to change course when need be, it’s hurt Days and caused audience erosion… I hope everything will be done to ensure a renewal, I grew up watching Days and can’t imagine it not being around.

I do think they need to change from shooting 6 months ahead of time so they can make cast, story changes more easily. It is torture for viewers to have to sit through crap actors–nuCiara I’m talking about you–. Remember when Belle was recast with Charity Rahmer and because of Days taping so far ahead we had 6 months of hell before Martha Madison aired. So, what now, the show goes dark for 4 months to catch up? And if they hadn’t taped so far in advance, the elephant statue story could have been aborted. Time to change Days. As… Read more »

I’ve never understood the logic of DOOL shooting 6 month out or how that model would be actually be cheaper than the traditional model which is traditional because, duh, it’s the way everyone else manages to do it. If there were significant saving in DOOL’s model you’d think other soaps would be doing it too. I can’t see how it couldn’t help but be a win/win situation for everyone to be able more quickly gauge viewer response to characters and storylines and to make adjustments when needed.

I would hope DAYS could still use the cost cutting move of taping eight weeks of shows in five weeks, then going on hiatus for three weeks, allowing the studio to be available to other tenants. They could work only two months ahead of air. BUT, the problem might be the actor contracts. If the brilliant Billy Flynn is only under contract for, say, 18 more months, do we really want six months to go by with him not filming any shows to let air shows catch up with production? That too would be a shame.

As far as I am concerned, they should shoot a shorter time in advance. I understand they shoot so far in advance to save money, but if a storyline or character is not working, you have to wait too long, and this viewer stops watching Days for weeks or months at a time until a storyline has passed. If they shoot a shorter time in advance, they can fix or change a story in a shorter time thus they will not lose this viewer.

Love Days, but just for the record not thrilled about the current storylines with Ava, and the Andre/Hope storyline. Love the cast, but not crazy about the storylines. Just say in’ – for day time TV – the soap genre – I like lighter romantic escapism not dark, ugly, mean storylines. We can watch the news for that! Perhaps, other people feel differently, but just wanted to put that out there. With this said, glad that Days was renewed! Like having the show on. Has a lot of nostalgia for me!

Days of our Lives Returns To Production After Temporary Halt Amid COVID-19

UPDATED:  According to Deadline  the cast and crew of NBC’s Days of our Lives will actually be returning tomorrow, October 20th to begin taping ahead of schedule after a positive Covid-19 test shut production down originally scheduled for two weeks.

The outlet cited, “Following a thorough investigation including contact tracing, quarantines, testing, and a deep cleaning of the studio, the health and safety experts at Days of our Lives have determined that it was safe to return to production before the end of the two-week period. As a result, the show will be back on set tomorrow Oct 20.”

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
