Worst Executive Producer... in DTS: Cancelled Soaps Posted May 14, 2019 · Report reply On 5/6/2019 at 5:03 PM, Vee said: The EPs at the ABC soaps were little more than a glorified go-between for Brian Frons and the HWs during FV and RC's run at OLTL. At GH, with Frons gone, FV still facilitated for Ron owing to their long run together, but his preferences for big hires, etc. became more and more apparent. With Ron gone FV is now basically ghostwriting the show - allegedly. I think the EP's probably had more power than we think they did on the ABC soaps. Frons clearly had favorite actors, but then so did Angela Shaprio the previous head of ABC Daytime. Afterall, she's the one that thought it was a fantastic idea to hire Linda Dano and have Rae infect AMC, OLTL, and GH. I hated a lot of JFP's tenure on GH. But, I think she was an EP, like many, that is really only as good as the HW. Which is probably why I enjoyed her run, for the most part, on GL. Who shot Roger was one of the best storylines of the 90's. Although I do think Guza as HW with JFP was a particularly bad combination. JFP has always skewed towards violence. She had Eden violently raped on SB, she killed off Maureen on GL, she had Frankie murdered on AW, etc., but typically those things were considered so violent because they weren't the norm. On GH, there were constant shootings, the panic room stuff, the killing off the Q's, a serial killer every twelve minutes. There was so much violence during JFP & Guza's run that you became almost immune to it. In terms of GH now, and FV. Well my biggest gripe about FV is he's more interested in hiring names rather than hiring actors to play characters. That and I do tend to think that FV has storyline ideas, but is unable to execute them. So the show is full of poorly written stories full of characters that half the audience barely knows. However, I think that is pretty much like most EP's with their own agenda.
