Toups

2011: The Directors and Writers Thread

Recommended Posts

Thanks for finding that. That article had a little too much Scrubs spin for me, but nonetheless some interesting tidbits, like the budget cuts.

It makes me wonder what ABC is going to do in lieu of the reruns to shrink the budget. Are they still going to cut episodes and replace the episodes with primetime reruns and non-soap material? Guess we'll have to wait and see.

When will Susan Dansby's episodes air? Or have they already.

I only ask because it seems that they're actually using Sofia (who is BLACK) in a storyline, which is so unlike them...So I wondered if this had anything to do with her.

Y&R tapes approx 4 weeks before air... and scripts are usually written 2 weeks before that (although, Y&R's schedule could be different).

But Susan Dansby's trial was announced a mere 4 weeks ago, so maybe another 2 weeks?

Ummmm I thought this was rather surprising (apologies if this is old news), but the new SOW is reporting that Christopher Whitesell is out at DOOL. It's not clear from the blurb whether he was fired or left of his own choice, and SOW did not know at press time whether he will be replaced or whether Higley will go solo. But here's the (potentially) even more interesting part:

"As for where Whitesell is headed...? Don't be surprised if he pops up somewhere else!"

I thought Chris and Gary were inseparable!

Aw man, I was going to post about this today! Oh well. It definitely wasn't Tomlin's decision to fire his BFF. Higley solo is scary. :(

My prediction is that Whitsell will end up at Y&R. Sheffer spoke very highly of him to Branco (even dissing Higly by saying Whitsell was the HW of DOOL). Maybe Richard Culliton will become involved with story. I'm sure someone on DOOL staff is being upped...otherwise they wouldn't bring in Iacubuzio to write scripts.

I wouldn't be surprised if Higly goes too.

As for Dansby, she announced on Twitter earlier this week that she just got her first assignment this week and that it would air in about 8 weeks.

LeClerc, how many writers have you befriended on Facebook?! :blink:

Actually not many (although even 1 is probably far too many by any normal person's standards lol).

Well there goes one of my March teasers! LOL Dunn will be filling Whitesell's spot on the breakdown team and is another ex-Sunset Beach writer that Tomlin brings in.

You shouldn't sit on info then Toups lol.

Given that Tomlin seems to have total say on the staff writers, I don't get why Whitesell was fired.

Sometimes I have to. I can't spill everything right away. LOL ;)

Sometimes stuff happens when someone can't save you. It certainly wasn't Tomlin's decision to fire his close friend.
