Previews for “As The World Turns'” November Sweeps.
In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, ATWT’s new co-head writer, David Kreizman, states that "this is a real chance to tell some bigger stories-stories that connect a lot of people in town and a lot of the favorites- and definitely to reach back into the history. But, really, it’s just to focus on the people we think our audience cares more about." This November, he pledges that the show will "pull out all the stops" in its storytelling and production.
