Blind Item: This Soap Showrunner is About to Be Fired

Publish date:

A veteran daytime soap opera executive producer is on his or her way out at this sudser. I hear the suits have been quietly building their case for quite some times, citing ratings woes among other issues.

While it will likely be spun in the press as the exiting E.P.'s decision to leave, make no mistake, this person is about to be canned. 

Speaking of firings, a writing regime at one daytime drama has until the end of summer to shape up or ship out.  Over at yet another sudser, people are beginning to whisper that this scribe isn't physically or mentally capable of handling the job of helming a soap's writing room anymore.
