The Young and the Restless is getting to turn the page on another head writing regime, as the number one soap opera sent out an official tweet from their Y&R Insider Twitter account!
In the tweet complete with an image of yellow rose bouquet of flowers, Y&R scripts, and a laptop, it says: “We’re so excited to welcome
@ChuckPrattJr as our new head writer & Co-EP. Exciting things are ahead on #YR!”
Pratt takes over from former Y&R co-head writers Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante as steering the ship for the character of Genoa City, as well as having a co-executive producer credit.
Jill Farren Phelps remains as the main executive producer of the series. Pratt and Phelps have previously worked together on Santa Barbara and General Hospital. Pratt’s last daytime head writing gig was that of All My Children.
Be on the lookout for the new head scribe’s scripts to debut in early 2015, most likely in February, on the CBS sudser.
