NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” daytime drama, which began in 1965, is one of the longest-running scripted television programs in the world. The soap opera, known for its dramatic storylines, has been spoofed by shows like “Friends” and “The Tonight Show.” Most recently, Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell parodied the series with Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” during a quarantine zoom skit.
Ken Corday will serve as executive producer with co-executive producer Albert Alarr. The series is produced by Corday Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television. Ron Carlivati will be the head writer.
“Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem” will stream exclusively on Peacock.
