Soaps.com has learned that The Young and the Restless has taken on writer Tom Casiello on a trial run basis. Tom is a veteran soap opera writer. He will fly out to Los Angeles next week to help pen a few episodes, with the stipulation that the show can let him go after that if not satisfied.

Tom has written for The Young and the Restless in the past (as a breakdown writer), as well as As The World Turns (breakdown writer; writer’s assitant), Days of Our Lives (associate head writer), and One Life to Live (associate head writer; script writer).

Soaps.com wishes to congratulate Tom Casiello on this opportunity. We look forward to viewing his work!
