Report: OLTL Scribe Walks Out
Posted Thursday, July 29, 2004 10:47:50 PM
Though no one at the network is talking, show sources claim that Josh Griffith has left his post as co-head writer for One Life to Live.


The Emmy winning team of Michael Malone and Griffith returned to One Life to Live in November 2002 as part of a series if changes instituted by then-new ABC Daytime president Brian Frons. The pair had previously helmed the writing team of One Life to Live from 1991 through 1996.


In April of this year, Griffith reportedly stepped down as head writer with Malone to co-head writer. Essentially, Griffith's responsibilities with the show were restructured to allow him to spend more time in Los Angeles, where his family resides. One Life to Live is filmed in New York City.


On July 13, Griffith is said to have walked out from his duties with One Life to Live, after network execs nixed his storyline proposals. It is unclear what those storyline ideas involved.


Requests for a statement went unanswered by ABC.
