2007: The Directors and Writers Thread

Recommended Posts

Brown/Estensen are NOT doing breakdowns. They are scripteditors, just like they were on OLTL. They replace Jeanne G. Ford as scripteditors. They are good dialog writers. As headwriters..not so good.

Esesten is listed in Ford's script editor position, but Brown is listed with the regular script writers. When they write their first script, we'll see if they'll be listed together (like when they were at OLTL) or not.

Yes, Jim and Barbara have the same agent as Sheffer, Rayfield and Johnson...
Thanks for the info, Gladgirl.

So which other writers does this agent have as clients? I want to see what potential writers might join the DAYS writing staff. LOL!

You are correct. Bettina was not listed today.

Wow, she's already gone? She couldn't hold the OLTL job and now ATWT too. I feel sorry for her. Poor Bettina.

I totally missed Bradbury being gone at ATWT today.

In my opinion she was a good scriptwriter!

I wonder if some of the exDAYS writers will make their way to Passions?

Passions has one of the nmost stable set of writers in the business.No changes there in a long time.

She was hit and miss with me. I wish we would see Chris Whitesell gone at least if we cant get Jean P. out of there.

Don't forget "Lethal Leah" Laiman.

If they are so determined to keep Jean I'd like to see the Cullitons replace Whitesll and Laiman.

Yeah, I forgot to mention Laiman.

Bettina was with AMC for 13 years, and now in the year since she's left AMC she's had two jobs and lost them :blink:

She's not a horrible script writer but believe me, she certainly is not the best. Maybe she just became stale at AMC after 13 years which is why I don't really have a high opinion on her. I haven't seen any of her work really at OLTL or ATWT.

^^I actually liked her on ATWT b/c I noticed that she was using a lot of vets with her scripts. Didn't she write Friday's episode? I thought that was a decent episode.

I still can't believe Laiman hasn't been canned yet. I guess that as long as Goutman's still EP, though, she'll still be on the writing staff. :(
