One Life to Live alum, Erika Slezak (Viki Lord) recently spoke with her fan club president, Walter Miller on a number of things which includes her thoughts of Days of Our Lives moving to stream on Peacock.
In the interview which was conducted on August 18th, Slezak notes, "I think that’s fantastic! I emailed Ron (Carlivati, head writer) when I heard it because he was our head writer. I was delighted for him, and I asked him if he was staying? He said, “Yes, as far as I know I’m staying!” I think it’s wonderful. The whole point of us going online was such a good idea. Unfortunately, it was so mishandled by the producers at Prospect Park. They knew nothing about what our audience was looking for, what THEY wanted. It was about stories and relationships and a lot of our audience was extremely offended by some of the things they were doing. We went through four head writers in three months because they kept saying, “We can’t write this stuff, or we don’t want to write this stuff.” The idea behind it, Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz who put it together, was a wonderful idea and we would have been the first to go online (Hulu). It was just five minutes ahead of its time and it was run by people that didn’t know what they were doing. They didn’t know how to produce a daytime drama and they pushed the envelope too far, too quickly, and then they spent too much money and then they ran out of money."
As for any new projects, she shared, "Not so far. I’ve been asked to do some auditions, but can’t be available now," adding, "We’ll see…we’ll see. It would be nice."
