Emmy-winning head writer, Ron Carlivati, is going to be sticking around Salem for a while! Soap Digest reports that Carlivati has inked a new deal to stay on at NBC Daytime’s, “Days of our Lives.” He began head-writing NBC’s lone soap in 2017.
Prior to joining the “DAYS” team, Carlivati spent most of his writing duties on the former ABC soap, “One Life to Live,” where he would soon become head writer up until the show’s cancellation in 2012. From there, he took on the head-writing reigns in Port Charles for three years on, “General Hospital.”
This past Daytime Emmy Awards, “Days of our Lives” not only won the categories of, “Outstanding Drama Series” and “Outstanding Series Directing Team,” the show won for, “Outstanding Series Writing Team.”
Carlivati had this to say to SOD:
“I am both thrilled and grateful to be staying put in Salem. From day one, [Executive Producer] Ken Corday, [Co-Executive Producer] Greg Meng, and the entire cast and crew at DAYS OF OUR LIVES welcomed me into their family with open arms. It is truly and honor and a privilege to write for these wonderful characters on this legendary show.”
Most recently, NBC announced that “Days of our Lives” for it’s 55th season at the network.
