Anthony Morina and Josh Griffith Taking Over at 'The Young and the Restless'

Longtime soap opera director turned producer Anthony Morina is taking over the executive producer role at The Young and the Restless, while Josh Griffith will return for another stint as head writer. This follows the news earlier today that Mal Young is exiting his role as both executive producer and head writer.

Morina's daytime soap opera credits include directing at Santa Barbara, Generations, Sunset Beach, Guiding Light, Port Charles, General Hospital, All My Children and The Young and the Restless. He has been a producer at Y&R since 2007, and in the supervising producer role since 2008. He also produced and directed MTV's Spyder Games.

Griffith has been moving around from soap to soap since 1988. He has had two previous head writing stints at Y&R that were, like Young's, a mixed bag. If Morina and Griffith share a common vision for the iconic daytime drama, they have a chance to succeed. If not, more chaos and backstage turmoil will ensue. Stay tuned!

Sony's Steve Kent praised Griffith when he hired him as Y&R's head writer in 2012 (Griffith left a year later).

“We are happy to welcome Josh back to The Young and the Restless and are looking forward to his creative input and ideas.”
