According to soap journo, Carolyn Hinsey at AMC Producer’s Sonia Blangiardo’s Tainted Dreams website at NYC Brand Productions, there are some upcoming changes that fans should be happy to hear about!
Hinsey reports: “The recent announcement that AMC and OLTL will cut back from posting four episodes a week online to two gives the new writers time to refocus the shows on stories that fans want to see…. both new teams are rewriting major story, as well as changing course with a budding AMC couple due to an actress’s real-life pregnancy. And look for another big name to return.”
AMC’s supervising producer Sonia Blangiardo, who is also the creator and Executive Producer of Tainted Dreams, filming this summer in New York.) related on the viewing schedule change, “We got feedback that 62% of our viewers are new, and we made changes. According to data collected from Hulu and iTunes, four hours a week is too much programming for new viewers. So we said, ‘If they’re only watching two hours, let’s give them two hours.’ We’re reinventing the wheel here; merging different genres. It’s all new.”
So AMC and OLTL fans, what do you think about the change in writers? Who do you think is another big name coming to the canvas? Whose pregnancy will change the course of an AMC couple? Weigh-in!
