Latham new writer for ABC soap ‘Port’

ABC named a new head writer for “Port Charles,” its fledgling “General Hospital” spinoff that’s off to a slow start as a daytime serial.

Lynn Marie Latham was tapped to replace the team of Richard & Carolyn Culliton, signaling a new direction for the soap, which airs in most markets at 12:30 p.m.

Latham was a co-creator and exec producer of “Homefront,” a 1991 ABC series, and wrote and produced for CBS’ “Knots Landing” for a six-year stretch. Wendy Riche continues as exec producer of “GH” and “Charles.”
