MAY DAYS!!! MAY DAYS!!!!
"New head writer Tim Lowery's work begins May 1 and while the transition will be seamless fans will notice a change," says executive producer Ned Yadroc. "Normally a new writer's first month is rather slow but not this month. Our new top secret story that will be all too familiar to fans will kick off with Tim's first show on May 1. It will take fans a little bit to realize what is happening and why we say its deja vu all over again but once they do they may be outside the studio with picket signs. Everything will be kept close toe the vest and fans should prepare to be shocked. We want fans to know enough ahead to tune in but still not know enough to ruin the surprises we have in store. Spoilers will be very hard to come by as rumors and theories will be spreading like wildfire. THis will definitely get fans talking. We know they may be angry with what will be happening but they just need to stay with us-it will be worth it in the end." says Yadroc.
