  1. Mal Young, SSM, John Fisher (producer), Kay Alden, possibly Tracey Thomson with the blocked face, Matthew Olsen (producer), Brent Boyd, Tony Morina (producer), Jimmy Freeman (producer), ?, Angelica McD, Steve Kent
  2. So Steve Kent thanked JFP for her contributions and wished her all the best in a statement....but I haven't seen anything from him about how "We're thrilled to have someone as accomplished as Mal Young ..blah blah blah". Has Sony actually uttered his name yet? And - if not - why not? Makes me wonder if he will be Head Writer as well and they are waiting until they can fire Pratt to do one big "Mal Young Named Executive Producer and Head Writer of 'The Young and the Restless'" press release. Or, does he have limited time to prove himself and, if he doesn't do so, he is out... so they are not making a big deal about his appointment?
  3. With his resume it's hard to imagine that he took a job as a staff producer with no promise of something bigger down the road. On the other hand, it's even harder to believe anyone overseeing soaps today is thinking even remotely outside the box. Maybe he is a "Consulting Producer" there to give his thoughts on story/ which case JFP will likely do as little with his input as she did with Harding Lemay's at AW and OLTL...
  4. Yeah her work was noticeably better on PP's AMC.
  5. Rebecca Taylor was listed as scriptwriter for today's Y&R (U.S.)
  6. Klein was also the writers' assistant at OLTL when Griffith was at OLTL (the first time).
  7. I think the killer is Eric with some sort of DID
  8. IIRC ABC was threatening to fire a scriptwriter from each show if they weren't allowed to reduce the number of new episodes in favor of showing more repeats. Or something like that.
  9. Things are looking up for Janet Iacobuzio! (just a guess)
  10. She said once that Pratt was her favorite HW to work for.
  11. Inevitably Lucky Gold will be out at Y&R and in at GH.
  12. McPherson and Snyder even have history with GH. McPherson was GH's continuity person and Snyder was a breakdown writer in the late 80s - early 90s.
  13. I'm actually kind of surprised Passanante agreed to this given how tight she and Ron are. Guess that friendship is over and Ron will never talk to her again. As has been mentioned Altman was better during her brief solo period at Y&R before Passanante joined her. I am a bit curious what Altman's writing style is like away from JFP. It was going to be Passanante or Tomlin because Valentini doesn't have many writer connections. Anyways Altman & Passanante aren't going to make the necessary changes because 1) They are too tight with Ron and probably think what he has done is brilliant and 2) These two don't make big moves. I think the change with these two will be akin to when Garin Wolf (later joined by Altman) replaced Bob Guza. eg. They will use Monica a tiny bit more at first and make a few other symbolic efforts around the edges but there won't be that much difference.
  14. I don't think it will happen but I want to see RC fired just to see how his apologists in the soap media cover it: "GH HERO Forced Out!"
  15. A doppelgänger story is the last thing I wanted to do ummmm okay. This reminds me of his "Nobody loved Stuart more than I did" comment after killing him off AMC.
