Soap Opera Uncensored is reporting controversial ex-daytime executive Christopher Goutman has been hired by Prospect Park to direct episodes of All My Children. I swear, this genre takes two steps forward, then three backwards.
While I don't begrudge anyone a job, is it really a smart move to hire the dude who brought a time-traveling, 200-year-old man to the final season of Another World, before going on to run As The World Turns into the ground? This is the same cat who didn't realize what a national treasure he had in Martha Byrne (ex-Lily).
Okay, so he'll reportedly only be directing, my fear is Goutman will somehow figure out how to claw his way to the top of these reboots. He's done it before, and to a bad end for the Procter and Gamble soaps.
