"Bring Back Doug & Julie!"

and I love you so...


Bill and Susan have returned to Days. They have had some wonderful scenes with Alice, Shawn, Jennifer, and of course Bo and Hope.

They have been praised in all the Soap magazines, and all of the writers have said it is time to sign them on for good! Now is the time to really heat up this letter campaign and let those writers and producers know that we want them back for GOOD!

Please continue to write letters and emails to NBC. We've been told that letters hold more weight and one letter represents thousands of households. Address your letters to Sheraton Kalouria, Head of Daytime Programming, Tom Langan, Head Writer, and Ken Corday, Executive Producer, these are the men who decide the fate of Doug & Julie.

Bill and Susan would love to come "home" to Days, and after this wonderful time we have had them, it's even more evident that they need to be back on Days full time, with a story of their own. They bring talent, class, elegance and romance to a show much in need.


Please write, fax or email the following people (particularly Tom Langan, headwriter of Days), thanking them and asking them to use their influence to keep this dynamic and romantic couple on the show! You may also send us your names and we will send periodic THANKS to these people also. (Della at or Lana at Your correspondence should be short and to the point.

Who are Doug and Julie?

Doug and Julie Williams, are the first "Super Couple" of Daytime TV and Days of our Lives. They brought romance, excitement and the reality of "true love" to their storyline on Days. But what made them even more special was that while Doug and Julie were falling in love, so were the actors who brought them to life, Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth.

Neither one was looking to fall in love, but the spark was there and the writers saw it as well as the viewers. Both Bill and Susan credit a "faulty record player" as helping them realize they had feelings off the camera as well as on camera! When they had to repeat a very passionate kissing scene due to a record player malfunction when the show was taped without stopping, they found that there were real feelings behind those kisses. They started seeing each other, taking it slowly at first. Bill had recently divorced his wife of some 22 years and was raising his 5 children by himself. Susan was in a relationship that she felt was really going nowhere. But once they found each other, it was magic! They dated for 4 years, really getting to know each other,
becoming friends first.

Then on October 12, 1974, in a private ceremony in Bill's home, they married, becoming Mr. & Mrs. Bill Hayes! The fans were elated, and now wanted their Days' counterparts, Doug and Julie, to follow in the same steps.

It would be two years later, but in 1976, Doug and Julie finally made it to the altar and soap history was made! Millions tuned in to see the wedding that was actually the same ceremony Bill and Susan had used 2 years earlier in their
real wedding.

Through the years, Doug and Julie would experience many adventures, a couple of divorces and re-marriages and finally leaving Salem to live in Switzerland; but through it all, they have always loved each other and remain very much devoted and in love today.

Luckily in real life, Bill and Susan have had a wonderful and happy marriage and are heading into their 27th year! They have worked together for most of those 31 plus years in all areas of the entertainment field and continue to do so.

Our goal is to bring them back to Days of our Lives with a viable storyline and to bring back the love, romance and excitement that Doug and Julie have always had. They have been gone too long! Please write and let the writers, producers, magazines and network know that you too want Bill and Susan Hayes back on Days of our Lives playing
the FIRST and BEST Super Couple of all time!

Lookin' Good!
