Will Josh Griffith Follow Hollywood Heights Collaborator Jill Farren Phelps to The Young and the Restless?
More and more intel is coming in about the behind-the-scenes shakeup at CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless. According to sources, Hollywood Heights writer Josh Griffith could be following HH's showrunner Jill Farren Phelps to the sudser. Both Y&R and HH are co-owned by Sony TV.
This would be the second stint for Griffith at Y&R. He was there from 2006-08, notably accepting financial core status to write the serial, alongside Maria Arena Bell during the 2007-08 WGA Writers Strike. Griffith's last tenure on the show ended amid rumblings of discord between him and Bell. Griffith has also written for As The World Turns, One Life to Live, Santa Barbara, Sunset Beach and General Hospital.
