In the new issue of Soap Opera Digest, executive producer Ken Corday talks about what went wrong after the show’s well-received 50th anniversary celebration last November, how they’re fixing it (again), and the "synergy" and "symbiosis" that the new co-head writing team of Higley and Quan (Quigley?) brings to the table.
"After Christmas and January, it had really started to take a left turn,"Corday tells the magazine. "I was very concerned about the lack of romance on the show, the lack of focus on the show, and I made my concerns known."
"I have been waiting to do this interview for about six months because we wrote the shows coming up and taped them six months ago, and I knew then I’d be very excited about the show because it is reset," Corday says. "Dena and Ryan have done a wonderful job of resetting it and getting it out of that dark place it was in."
