Ex-Soap Star Changing Day Drama Format

Jun 16, 2008  •  Post A Comment

“Guiding Light” executive producer Ellen Wheeler, a former star of soap operas “All My Children” and “Another World,” is trying to boost viewership for the 56-year-old program, the Los Angeles Times reports. She’s experimenting with using hand-held cameras instead of pedestal equipment to change the show’s look, among other changes, the paper says. Cancellations of shows such as “Another World” and “Santa Barbara” reflect shrinkage of daytime television audiences who may be migrating to nighttime soaps such as “The Hills,” the newspaper says.
