That sounds right. Four. (Or maybe 3, with the 4th being a replacement for one of the other 3.)
You'd expect him to echo that same format with B&B in 1987, if that were his ideal working environment. And it appears that he did. I've watched those first twelve or fifteen episodes of "B&B" that have been released this so far this month, and it looks as though a few of the episodes were written entirely by Bill (the first episode, for instance), a few were written by Bill & Bradley Bell, a few by Bill and Meg Bennett, and a few by Bill and Jack Smith.
Honestly, my biggest issue with Belle/MM is that she's way too close in age with Ali Sweeney. If I was in charge I'd probably recast her with an actress that's at least ten years apart from Sweeney (and looks visibly younger) and also put Claire in a Mike Horton-freezer for at least five years (if the show is still on then) and then maybe have her return as vaguely "early 20s" lol.
Variety reported P&G interested in The Morleys by Vera Caspary and Lloyd Rosamund as a daytime soap. After a script is submitted they'll take it from there.
Caspary was an author most famous for Laura which became a hit movie in the 40's.
They need to stop the establishing shots of the Abbott and Chancellor homes. We see the exterior of these vast homes and then move into the same one room.
Sharon phones Mariah from an empty Crimson Lights to apologize for not attending the christening because she had a 'staffing issue'.
What? the extra who wipes the tables couldn't make it?
Adam seems to wear the same suit in every scene.
Nate advises Amanda to take time for herself. She'd just come back from a vacation.
Wouldn't it make more sense to have Amanda and Imani go to work for Jabot,Newman,Chance.com, Hamilton/Winters than start another business that we will never see?
