A phone call reminded of something this morning, and it’s been on my mind since.
As you watch today’s final Guiding Light episode, remember that in addition to the cast of characters you saw on your screen every day, there were many, many people behind the curtain at Oz.
We may not have always agreed 100% with their ideas or decisions, but these actors, writers, directors, producers and administrative folks worked very hard and were very invested in making GL be the best it could be, every day.
Invested, folks. Deeply, deeply invested in the show, and its survival.
There are a lot of people who lost their jobs and their livelihoods, as well as the joy of working on a project that they loved. They’re on my mind today.
