I don't even have the strength to get overly dramatic about this. Soap Opera Digest is reporting Dena Higley and Josh Griffith are the new head writers of NBC's Days of Our Lives. Gary Tomlin and Chris Whitesell are out.
While DAYS has been admittedly boring for the past few months, I can't for the life of me imagine why executive producers Ken Corday, Greg Meng and Sony's Steve Kent would ever pick up the phone to call Soap Opera Slayer Higley again. Madness. Sheer madness.
Griffith is a talented, character-driven writer. Here's hoping he can do all the heavy lifting.
