Days of our Lives is a popular American daytime soap opera that recently celebrated its 40th year on television. It is set in the fictional upper-class city of Salem, located somewhere in the Midwest (probably Illinois). The soap is known for its outrageous story twists and legendary characters, most of whom are exorbitantly wealthy and live glamorous, yet highly dramatic, lives. Some bizarre stories include: Dr. Marlena Evans falling from a fourteen-story building and surviving; Dr. Marlena Evans being hypnotized to be the Salem Stalker; Dr. Marlena Evans giving birth to another woman's babies; Dr. Marlena Evans realizing her husband is actually someone disguised as her husband; Dr. Marlena Evans losing her memory; Dr. Marlena Evans becoming possessed by the Devil in 1994 to 1995. Due to some backstage drama on the set, head writer James E. Reilly was recently terminated and replaced.
