July message from Josh!

Hi Friends

  Been a while. Sorry about that but I do appreciate those of you who have hung in there. Thank you! I had not been working very much and kind of felt like I didn't have a whole lot to say to you. And my parents always told me " if you don't have something good to say, don't say anything at all " . Ha! The good news during that period of time however was that I did sign a new 3 yr. contract which I was very pleased about. Unfortunately, as you know, as of Sept. there will only be 4  " soaps " left. I always hate to see that as I do know people on those shows that have been cancelled and wish them the best. Who knows? Maybe some of them wind up on DOOL. At any rate, the good news is that DOOL is still rolling along and will be guaranteed to be on the air for the next 2-3 yrs. until the next contract and then hopefully many years after that! So keep watching and make sure NBC is aware of how much you love the show
   Speaking of which , as you know there have been some big changes made lately and I think you are all going to be pleased with the results. Several of your former favorites will be returning plus some new additions that I think you will approve of. And from a personal viewpoint, I have already been much more involved in the show which obviously makes me very happy. Our new writers are co- head writers Marlene Mcpherson and Darrel Ray Thomas Jr. They know the history of the show well and have great new plans for the show that will seem more like the DOOL you all knew and loved. Noel Maxam and Greg Meng are our new Executive Producers with Noel being in charge of our every day activity on the floor. He is youthful, energetic and very talented. He loves the show and has a great eye for what makes a scene work. And he is terrific at working with actors. Greg has been with DOOL for a long time and " gets it ". He also loves the show and is dedicated to keeping it on the air for a long time. We also have a new publicity dept. and they are excellent at what they do. They too are ready to jump in and get the show kicking . So basically, it amounts to a lot of new energy in and around the set and everyone has a little extra bounce in their step.
   Well, it's nice finally having a chance to catch up with you. I hope my summary of what's been going on has been helpful  and informative. I will try to do this more frequently than I have in the past and, again, I thank you all for being there for the show and for me. Take good care.

     With much Love and Appreciation,
