Days of Our Lives brings yet another writer on staff! Bettina Francionne Bradbury recently joined the show as a dialogue writer. In addition to remembering her writing for now defunct shows such as ‘Capitol’ and ‘Santa Barbara’, you may have seen some of her work on All My Children, where she won 3 Daytime Emmy’s for her work, One Life to Live and As the World Turns. Let’s hope that Bradbury helps bring DOOL into the Emmy’s this year!
