Soap Opera Digest has reported that Marlene McPherson and Darrell Ray Thomas Jr. Have been let go as the writers of “DOOL.” They are being replaced by former Co-Executive Producer and one-time Co-Head Writer Gary Tomlin and former Co-Head Writer Christopher Whitesell.
“Passions” vets McPherson and Thomas Jr. joined the series last May and saw the show through its large revamping last fall. McPherson tweeted, “Thank you DOOL fans. You are the best and we love you! NBC never let us tell our stories. They kept stopping us and changing our direction. Sad.”
