Ron Carlivati is the head writer. "Days of our Lives" airs nationally on NBC in the United States and in over 15 countries internationally.
The show has garnered 58 Emmy Awards - most recently 2018's Outstanding Daytime Drama - and 372 nominations, as well as multiple People's Choice Awards, GLAAD Media Awards and Prism Awards. The show's success stems from its consistent commitment to excellence in writing and storytelling - supported by a diverse ensemble of performers - and an uncanny knack for anticipating viewer interests. With its mix of classic genre traditions and groundbreaking narratives reflecting modern life, "Days of our Lives" remains a perennial favorite among viewers of all ages.
"Days of our Lives" is set in the fictitious Midwestern town of Salem. The core families are Bradys, Hortons and DiMeras, and the multi-layered storylines involve elements of romance, adventure, mystery, comedy and drama.
