The head writer from a recently canceled soap opera will apparently land on his feet after the show ends its run, according to a report in EW.com’s Inside TV blog.
Head writer Ron Carlivati of ABC’s "One Life to Live" is jumping to the network’s last remaining soap, "General Hospital," the story says.
Carlivati said in a statement that he will remain committed to "One Life to Live" as its head writer until it concludes in January 2012, and will then join "General Hospital."
Said Carlivati: "It has been my distinct honor to write for Agnes Nixon’s groundbreaking soap opera for the past fifteen years, and it will be with a heavy heart that I, along with my incredibly talented team, pen its finale.”
"General Hospital" recently appointed Garin Wolf, who has worked on the soap since 1997, as head writer.
