Albert Alarr is exiting as Days of Our Lives director/co-executive producer, with series producer Janet Drucker promoted to replace him in his co-executive producer role. The daytime drama, produced by Corday Prods. and distributed by Sony Pictures Television, also will institute HR presence on set. Series executive producer Ken Corday just made the announcement in an email to cast and crew. (You can read it in full below.)
“Effective immediately, Janet Drucker will be elevated to co-executive producer of Days of Our Lives, replacing Albert Alarr, who will be exiting his role,” Corday wrote. “Moving forward, we will be implementing additional HR protocols, including an increased HR presence as well as channels for reporting any concerns. It is imperative that we have a safe and inclusive workplace environment.”
This is great news for Days! I’m surprised it took this long to get rid of him. Hopefully, the cast and crew will be looking forward to coming back on set and having a much better atmosphere at work. I also hope that this may bring back cast members that didn’t want to be there anymore due to the toxic work environment that Albert Alarr created. I’m still in somewhat of a shock that this happened in this day and age.
Amazing!!! Well done Days cast. This is such a victory for them and especially for women. So many women have to put up with harassment at work and either no one believes them or nothing is done. This is great.
Maybe more people will want to stay with the show or come back.
