Days of Our Lives has suspended production for at least one week, in the wake of the investigation into workplace misconduct by longtime co-executive producer/director Albert Alarr.
No specific reason was give for the pause in production, though Deadline reports that it is to “allow the entities involved” to “examine the situation before it further escalates.”
Alarr had been the subject of a nine-week internal investigation amid complaints that he had been “abusive” to staffers, making them “feel uncomfortable and humiliated.”
Alarr reportedly received a written warning and was asked to undergo training.
However, he retained his positions as co-EP and director “sparking outrage among cast and crew.”
Lisa Rinna — who in 2021 reprised her Days role of Billie Reed corroborated some of the allegations declaring in a since-deleted Instagram story, “I couldn’t believe the work environment. It was disgusting. I was shocked.”
