UK soap producer added to Y&R's behind-the-scenes team

CBS Daytime's number one soap, The Young and the Restless, is beginning the new year with an exciting behind-the-scenes change: well-known British producer Mal Young has joined the show.

The Young and the Restless has started 2016 off with a bang by hiring famed British producer Mal Young to join its behind-the-scenes team.

Known for his work on EastEnders, the high-profile producer took to Twitter with a message that confirms he's working on daytime's number one soap opera. "End of week one and loving my new @YandR_CBS family."

In addition to EastEnders, Young has produced the European soap opera Brookeside and served as co-creator to And the Beat Goes On and the BBC's Doctors.

At this time, Y&R has yet to comment on exactly what role Young plays at the daily drama, but fans are hoping he'll bring a fresh perspective to the American soap opera scene.
