Julie Hanan Carruthers Named Executive Producer of All My Children

Julie Hanan Carruthers has been named executive producer of ABC Daytime's popular drama, "All My Children," it was announced today by Brian Frons, president, ABC Daytime. She will take over the helm September 29. She replaces outgoing executive producer Jean Dadario Burke.

"Julie is an incredibly strong, talented and innovative executive producer. Her passion and spirit will be a perfect fit for the ground-breaking hallmark that is 'All My Children.' I am very pleased to be able to keep her part of the ABC Daytime family," said Mr. Frons.

In December 1999, Julie Hanan Carruthers was handed the reins of executive producer of "Port Charles," the spin-off series of the Emmy Award-winning Daytime drama, "General Hospital." Ms. Hanan Carruthers, along with her collaborative team, adapted a new production model, enhancing its breakout telenovela format. This year "Port Charles" earned its first Daytime Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Drama Series category.

Ms. Hanan Carruthers had previously served as senior supervising producer of both "General Hospital" and "Port Charles." She was a producer for the Daytime drama "Santa Barbara" from 1986-90, during which time it won three Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Daytime Drama. She became a producer at "General Hospital" in 1994, and was named supervising producer in 1996. "General Hospital" received five Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Daytime Drama during her producing tenure.

Ms. Hanan Carruthers grew up in Sarasota, Florida, and received her degree in radio, television and film from the University of Texas. She and her two children, Amanda and David, will relocate to New York.

"All My Children" celebrated its 33rd anniversary in January, 2003. The program has successfully maintained its popularity and continues to be one of Daytime's most compelling dramas. "All My Children" took home the 1998 Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series, the third time the show received this top honor, having also garnered the award in 1994 and 1992. The show also received its third consecutive Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series Writing. "All My Children" received its second Writers Guild Award and its second GLAAD Media Award in 2002. The show was recently awarded 17 Daytime Emmy Awards, more than any other Daytime drama.

Created by Agnes Nixon, "All My Children" premiered on the ABC Television Network on January 5, 1970, as a half-hour show; seven years later it expanded to an hour. Megan McTavish is headwriter. "All My Children" is produced in New York and airs MONDAY-FRIDAY (1:00-2:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
