We’ve all heard the very familiar story of how viewers started to watch soap operas. Fans would be at home with their mom or grandmother during the summer break, with no other option of television programming. Has anyone ever wondered how soap writers got their start?
A profile piece in The Huffington Post revealed legendary scribe Kay Alden got her start by writing a dissertation for her PhD at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Where did the late William J. Bell come into play?
According to the article:
As part of her research for her dissertation, the brainy blonde found Chicagoan William J. Bell's number in the phone book and called the creator of the CBS soap, The Young and the Restless for an interview. She went to his home on Lake Shore Drive and a requested 45 minute interview turned into 2 1/2 hours.
After submitting sample scripts over a period of months, Kay ended up as a writer for The Young and the Restless, starting on May 13, 1974 (my nephew Jack's birthday) through 2006 when she left for a short stint as a consultant for ABC'sAll My Children.
