78 January 17th, 2015 Head Scribe Chuck Pratt Jr. On What To Expect On Y&R: “You’ll See More Centralized Stories, With Bigger Umbrellas, Touching More Characters …”

Courtesy/CW

The new head writer of The Young and the Restless,  Chuck Pratt Jr.’s episodes are going to begin airing shortly on the number one soap opera.  Fans of the CBS Daytime drama are of course wondering what he has planned for the residents of Genoa City and how he plans to tell story.

In a intriguing feature in this week’s Soap Opera Digest (on newsstands now) called, “The Future Is Now” which has several daytime creatives weighing in on how they foresee the 2015 landscape in the world of daytime dramas,  Y&R’s Pratt Jr.,  predicted that 2015 will be a year of surprises speaking solely about his show.

When SOD asked what is Chuck’s game plan to make Y&R shine, he related: “Emotional stakes will be at the forefront across all stories – and you’ll see more centralized stories, with bigger umbrellas, touching more characters with shared challenges and hopes and fears.”

The scribe went on to also say, “Overall, expect a faster pace, deeper, more relatable emotions and a sense of, “I can’t believe they’re doing that!”

So, what do you think about some of Chuck Pratt Jr.’s plans for Y&R?  Excited to see what 2015 has in store as we turn the page to a new chapter with a new head writer?  Comment below!

    ohhh no!
    Chuck is disappointing me!
    I really believed he would be the man to bring some ”action” and ”suspense” and kill-off
    Sharon and blow up Crimson Lights..
    Crimson Lights is a junkyard of junk. A set from Sanford and Son..
    I keep thinking Fred is going to walk in and sit down with a beer and turn on the TV on and tell Elizabeth he’s coming.. ..

    I’m going to expect some ”keep me awake” adventures from Pratt, I want some exciting thrillers.
    I will settle for anything exciting, to start with..
    Pratt has no qualms about killing off stars or blowing stuff up, I’m counting on him!

    su0000 alright you’re going WAY TOO FAR defaming Sanford and Son. It was a bonafide hit like it or not. It provided it’s entertainment for all television viewers so KNOCK IT OFF with comments like that…NO LOL…well maybe a tiny one since it is SLIGHTLY amusing as usual. I just don’t get how I truly want to tell you off but yet still laugh at your nonsense.

    The part when he says “a sense of ‘I can’t believe they’re doing that!’” is what scares me the most. I sincerely hope Chuck doesn’t completely rewrite characters to suit his stories, I know he’s notorious for doing that on All My Children but hopefully he’s learned from all the fan backlash from that. I’m all for faster paced, exciting stories, with twists and turns and intrigue (like GH), but Y&R still needs to stay true to itself. Bending legacy characters and rewriting histories to fit plot-driven stories is NOT what Y&R has ever been about, and I hope it does not turn into that under Chuck.

    They need to go back and look at the history better. Chelsea will never be right for Adam she never understood his pain or whats important to him . Adam ONLY married Chelsea because what happened instead of Victor trying to frame Adam for Skyes death Victor changed it to frame Sharo because Sharon went to Hawaii to clear Adams name & ask Skye to come back. But Skye fell into the volcano & Victor watched Sharon try to help save Skye but instead he let Skye die and Sharon take the blame. Then he told Nick and Nick said if Sharon sees Adam he w

    Chuck Pratt taking over head writing duties & shared e/p duties does not fill me with confidence that he’s going to do right by Y&R fans. Susan Lucci credits this man for killing All My Children. My fear with his sketchy past, he’ll likely damage Y&R rather than help it.

    I afraid he may sink the ship, too. Just like he did on AMC.
    He may the show almost totally, unwatchable. It was no surprise that the ratings tanked, and the show was cancelled. It was so far gone, that even a writing team change for the last 3 or 4 months couldn’t save it. The damage was done. I don’t know how he got this job, But we shall see how he does with it.

    He wrote many a vile story lines on “All My Children” most notably the one where Reese, the lesbian cheated on her fiancee Bianca by having sex with Bianca’s brother-in-law.

    What a slap in the face to humanity!

    I didn’t even mention the stripper pole he brought in as a daily story line prop. My hopes for his regime are EXTREMELY low.

    No Miss Sue, Reese, who was a lesbian, sleeping with Zach Slater reflects a male fantasy and it does not pay fidelity to reality.

    Michael (not Fairman) replied

    It may not put people to sleep, su—but it may well have them tuning out in droves, which is what happened when he wrote that particular storyline on All My Children (along with several others that were equally out of character). It’s true that viewer boredom is deadly, so I sort of see your point, but on soaps, it’s always been especially important to have characters people can relate to and believe in (emotionally speaking—the things that happen to them are often outside most people’s everyday reality, soap but viewers generally demand that the characters’ behavior and reaction to those extraordinary events be believable). He didn’t get that when he was writing AMC; we’ll soon see if he’s learned anything from that debacle. “Deeper, more relatable emotions” sounds very good and on the right track, but I too am disturbed by the “I can’t believe they’re doing that!” comment—which sounds ominous, and exactly like what got him into trouble with AMC viewers and tanked the show.

    So, Su, you are a fan of Mr Pratt’s storytelling?

    Michael (not Fairman) replied

    I don’t remember him “rocking” while he was at GH—I remember more of the same old stuff GH had been doing for years (Sonny, Carly, Jason, mob, lather, rinse, repeat), and in any case, he was the co-headwriter there; it was still primarily Guza’s show. AMC, where he held the headwriting job by himself, is probably a better indication of what his own stories would be like. But perhaps he’s learned something from that unhappy experience.

    I don’t know Chuck when I hear the phrase I can’t believe they are doing that– it remains me of every horrible story line I ever watched from the aliens on Days, to vampires on GH– the awful Lumina story on AW—to Sharon marrying Victor on Y&R ,every triangle on B&B and so many more I have forgotten— so I’m not reassured by these statements here

    However if everyone turns into a zombie so be it, I’ll watch Y&R to the bitter end, because I’m realist I know the simple formula that soaps used to run on don’t work in this day and age. All the classic stories of cheating spouses, divorces and out of wedlock children just don’t shock or tickle the imagination of viewers who see so much more racy stuff on YouTube — so I’m in, it is what is it is, but I don’t think different is going to be better.

    Reply

    Michael (not Fairman) replied

    I agree to a point, but I’m not sure the conventional wisdom that the “classic stories” won’t work anymore really would hold up if anybody tried it. Soaps can’t compete with the titillation factor of YouTube, so maybe they shouldn’t be trying. What people used to get out of soaps—emotional involvement, an emotional connection—is something they’re not going to get from YouTube, so maybe that’s the angle the soaps should be aiming for. But I haven’t seen a soap genuinely invest in that kind of storytelling for about two decades now; it’s become quite a plot-driven medium. They keep telling themselves that “oh, that won’t work anymore,” but the last soap that tried it actually had a ratings increase (until the network came in and started pushing plot-plot-plot again). I don’t see much examination of their assumptions on the part of TPTB—and meanwhile the ratings continue to erode.

    please return y n r to its former glory under the bill bell regime! the show has been on the right track as of late , so please do your best to continue this upswing!!!
    we do not need useless new characters, we need the abbotts, the newmans, the chancellors, and the winters!!!
    we do want boring, long drawn murder mysteries, we want romance and conflict!
    we do not out of place plot driven arcs we want emotional true to character stories!!!
    we do not need ruthless evil to the core victor newman , we want calculated victor newman who bleeds, hurts and makes bad choices! (one example)
    please treat and handle y n r with respect and care to the viewers who watch 5 days a week , 12 months of the year and hope to continue to watch for a very long time!!

    thank you, a long time viewer!

    You can get all your fantasy soap writing from watching GH. A lot of us would like to keep that kind of story telling away from Y&R.

    I agree with Damien. Y&R is number one for a reason. If it becomes another GH or Days, it’s viewership will drop. I am really liking Y&R now. I don’t mind a tornado, but if mob wars start, I am out.

    I know a lot of people on here probably don’t watch Tyler Perry’s soap, The Haves and the Have Nots, on Oprah’s network; but that soap has some of the best writing for a soap I’ve ever watched. It’s fast paced, and humorous and entertaining without dumbing down the plots and storylines. It’s very well written with contemporary dialogue and situations that are relateable.
    Oprah missed an opportunity to bring AMC and One Life on to her network and she could have integrated Tyler’s show in, as well. She could have created an afternoon block of soaps that would have drawn fans to her network AND they would have stuck around to watch other shows, but she blew that big time!!!!

    Chuck was the final nail that KILLED All My Children with the exact same approach – characters did things that didn’t make sense and stories just went off the rails.

    He did NOT give AMC an added boost – well, he gave fans an added boost out the door.

    Writers that wreck shows shouldn’t be hired to write for other shows.

    Hold on there..

    Pratt was out of AMC in Nov 2009 and AMC died on September 23 2011..
    AMC was in the hands of Lorraine Broderick its’ last 2 years..
    ((Broderick won three daytime emmy awards for outstanding writing team from her work as head writer of AMC, giving her four emmy honors as a daytime head writer. and-
    AMC was canceled under her 2 year care, she couldn’t save it..
    or – it simply was nobody’s fault but ABC/Brian Frons and Anne Sweeney..

    Michael (not Fairman) replied

    AMC was not in the hands of Lorraine Broderick for all of those last two years, su. I don’t remember who followed Pratt immediately, but Broderick was not brought in until the end—the last six months, maybe not even that long. As I recall, she got the job right before the cancellation announcement came.

    (If your point is that Pratt’s damage was so pervasive that nobody could undo it, I agree with you.)

    Michael (not Fairman) replied

    I looked it up. Broderick was interim headwriter for a few months after Pratt left, then the headwriters were Donna Swajeski and David Kreizman for about a year, and then Lorraine came back for the last few months of the show (May to September 2011).

    The damage Pratt did was so severe that nobody could repair it. That happens sometimes when someone’s choices so badly undermine the inherent structure of a show that it can’t be fixed.

    davlestev1 replied

    Michael (not Fairman) first of all Donna Swajeski..there’s a writer’s name I forgot about..who rose to prominence head writing Another World..and managed to keep my interest at that..as well as quite a bit of time on Guiding Light..but I remember her more for Another World. That being said what I mean by a lesson learned is a lesson earned..is that hopefully Mr.Pratt won’t go the way of saying his stories are more important than the people portraying them like he did on AMC..but he did give quite a negative vibe in one of his first post hire interviews. Like I said..some old dogs could care less about new tricks and he seems hell bent on writing and not understanding what makes the show so good. Along with La Phelps they’re going to turn the show on it’s ear and Sony seems quite content with their directional path. Tragic.

    Well, thanks for your confession but I am not one of those fans who is “just that stupid to watch something we do not like.”

    It will be sad when that day comes (like it was in the last months of ATWT and GL) and when enough fans do tune out to warrant a cancellation, but there are too many other options in a day and on TV and the internet to suffer what TPTB have decided to serve us – a JFP/Pratt combo. I learned from the cancellations of ATWT and GL so I am prepared. If TPTB don’t care any more about the show than to hire Pratt, then I don’t either. It was very hard for me to get to this point, but bracing myself for it and then seeing his name on the credits Friday was like seeing a KMart tag on Anna Wintour. Not to diss KMart, but one of those things – Pratt and Y&R’s legacy – do not belong.

    For me, I’m a diehard fan of the 70s-90s sagas on Y and R: Lorie Brookes vs. Vanessa, The Cassandra Rawlings murder twist plot that lasted for a couple of years, Jennifer Brookes’ breast cancer, sibling rivalry in the Brookes girls, and how I miss great singers like Gina Romalotti! And breakfast with the Abbotts. And, if the new guy has ANY loyalty to the show, he’d make Jill holed up in the Chancellor home and become Kay incarnate, meaning bringing in a new young girl who does to Jill what she did the Kay over the years (and vice versa.) So many great stories of the past…. even the great ghost stories of Kay and Sharon– they kept us watching and wondering. And Nikki’s first marriage to Victor 30 years ago– where is the Colonnade Room and that romance? God, I hope that kind of love story telling has not died! Come on, you others out there know all the great stories. Diabolical characters like Leanna Love, you hated her and loved her… that’s what I want more of in the future. And I always respected true-to-form social issues: where’s a story on child obesity? Gamblers Anonymous? Suicidal tendencies? And story characters like Brock Reynolds, who brought faith to characters– where’s a quality story of religion? Bring these to Y and R: they were what Bill Bell made famous and thus what made Y and R famous… and for Heaven’s sake, I want some of the old melodies playing in the background; Bill created music for each character– he told me that himself!

    Y&R makes money for CBS so they won’t let Chucky baby kill it. I would just give him a chance. After all, Y&R was horrible in 2014. He can only improve the show. I would hope that he sat down and made a list of the pros and the cons and write from there. Here is mine.

    Pros: Michael, Lauren, Paul, Nikki, Joe, Avery, Nick, Sage, Adam, Chelsea, Mariah, Kevin, Fen, Jack, Red, Kelly, Ashley, Abby and Harding.

    Cons: Victor, Victoria, Stitch, Dylan, Fake Billy, Jill, Colin, Summer and her husband, Cane and Lilly.

    Rewritten: Cane, Lilly, Dylan, Jill, Colin and Sharon.

    Recast: Billy, Stitch, Kyle and Summer.

    Rehired: The original Tucker

    Do away with? Crimson Lights, The Underground, and that annoying noise in the Jabot lab!

    I’m right with you. Billy and Summer are attached to so many characters and they ruin it. Why can we see this but the executives discount it? They have this problem over at GH with a character who sucks big time. He couldnt win a part in his high school play and he is on GH and attached to so many legends.

    Michael (not Fairman) replied

    You make one crucial assumption that may not hold, Timmm—that CBS knows what it’s doing well enough to give Pratt the heave-ho in time to save Y&R. I can’t say the decisions over the last five to ten years support your faith in that. (Actually, it seems to be Sony that is making the crucial decisions, but replace “CBS” with “Sony” in this conversation, and the result is the same—I’m not sure they’ll see the signs soon enough to do anything, because they don’t seem very clued in.)

    There are ways to damage a soap that go far beyond their immediate repercussions, and that’s the kind of damage Pratt did at All My Children. The best that can be hoped is that he learned something from that, but I haven’t seen him say anything that indicates he has, or that he even thinks he did anything wrong.

    Timmm replied

    I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt but I see what your saying. Daytime is probably the last thing on their list of importance. However since Y&R has been #1 for 26 years I just think they they care a little more than we might expect. I guess Pratt could write the show into the gutter, turn away the fans, and CBS/Sony might say, look at these ratings, this show isnt making money anymore. Cancel it! Call Emeril, tell him to heat up his skillet!

    I think he is probably going to take a lot of stories from the late night soap Melrose Place. Think Kimberly Shaw coming out from a coma and her going after Michael & Jane.

Crimson Lights will probably blow up as far as any long term veterans getting killed off who knows. the one thing I am bored with is Sage she is being shoved down my throat just like Dylan and I care nothing about either character.
