Veteran scribe Patrick Mulcahey has decided to step away from his keyboard. Mulcahey has exited from his post at The Bold and the Beautiful. Mulcahey served as a script writer for the most watched sudser in the world from 2005 and also served as story consultant for the show from 2009-2019.
Despite the rumors online, Mulcahey has not retired but just taking a break the daytime arena. Mulcahey told Daytime Confidential in a statement:
Thanks for all the kind words and good wishes, but I'm not retiring! I've just put in fifteen satisfying years at The Bold and the Beautiful and am taking a little break before looking for my next job. If I'm very lucky, it'll be as good to me and for me as B&B was.
Before Mulcahey's run at B&B, he was the associate head/breakdown writer at General Hospital from 1998-1999 and was script writer from 1996-1999. Mulcahey was also at the now-defunct Guiding Light as script writer, 1982, 1992-1994, associate head/breakdown writer, 1993–1994, and co-head writer in 1994. Mulcahey also was a script writer at Santa Barbara from 1984-1990 and at the Another World spinoff Texas from 1980-1981.
Mulcahey's last episode is slated to air Dec. 5.
