In the new issue of Digest, DAYS’s Head Writer Ron Carlivati, whose new material will debut on July 19, unveils his plans for Salem. “There will be focus on the vets because I love writing for vets,” he tells the magazine. “Having grown up on soaps, I often gravitated to the characters that had been on for a long time, so what’s great about DAYS is, there’s a deep bench of characters like that with Steve and Kayla and Hope and John and Marlena and the DiMeras and Stefano, who sadly has passed away, but you still have Andre and his family, and you have Victor Kiriakis. Lucas is getting a big story and I am looking forward to it. You have an embarrassment of riches.” To read about what else will happen under his new regime, all about the returns of Alison Sweeney (Sami), Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R) and Chandler Massey, and so much more, pick up the new issue of Digest, on sale now!
