Carlivati will be the daytime series’ head writer, with Ryan Quan, co-head writer with Higley, given the newly created Creative Consultant title. Sharing that title will be Days writer Sheri Anderson Thomas. The changes take effect immediately.
The new head writer is well known to soap fans from his stints on both One Life to Live and General Hospital. His tenure at One Life to Live included a Daytime Emmy win in 2008.
Days is produced by Sony TV, which also is behind CBS’ veteran daytime drama The Young and the Restless.
