Good morning to all of our colleagues at Days of our Lives! It is a very special day for the longest running scripted series in NBC Television history who turns 48 years young today! And that, my friends, is quite the accomplishment!
We want to first say a big congratulations for all the hard working men and women in front of the camera and behind the scenes who have kept this darling of soapland cranking out episodes day after day, and week after week!
In a climate where so many daytime dramas have gone to soap heaven, DAYS has been a true survivor! And this year also saw DAYS win the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series, the only second time in its storied history!
And right in time for their anniversary, the Friday air show looks to be quite the doozy, now that Marlena (Deidre Hall) hit the play button and the sex romp/rape of Kristen (Eileen Davidson) to Father Eric (Greg Vaughan) is being shown at Kristen’s wedding to Brady (Eric Martsolf)! Good timing!
The cast and crew of DAYS have something fun planned to celebrate today and that includes you, its loyal and passionate fans! Starting at 10AMPST and going to 3PMPST, the stars will be live tweeting from the set and answering some of your questions! Use
#askdays48 and go to the @DaysofourLives to participate and also check out @NBCDays! We are told that the actors will be tweeting out pictures, details and videos from the big event!
Alison Sweeney (Sami) kicked off the online celebration this morning when she tweeted, “Good morning! TGIF! Happy 48th anniversary to
