NBC's DAY OF OUR LIVES to Broadcast Classic 1997 Episode, 11/23

NBC will broadcast one of the most scandalous, memorable and joyous episodes from the classic archives of its daytime drama DAYS OF OUR LIVES on Friday, November 23. On the heels of Eileen Davidson's return as longtime fan favorite Kristen DiMera, this episode takes viewers back to one of the villainess' most memorable "Days" episodes to date.

The episode -- originally telecast on June 24, 1997 -- involves John's (Drake Hogestyn) wedding to a Kristen impostor. Meanwhile, Marlena (Deidre Hall) and the real Kristen (Eileen Davidson) are still unconscious in a secret room where evil mastermind Stefano (Joe Mascolo) is holding them captive. Elsewhere, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) tries to adjust to the idea that Bo (Peter Reckell) and Billie (Krista Allen) are married while Bo's life is threatened after his cover is blown during an investigation gone wrong.

"This admired series has continued to keep a loyal and dedicated audience since 1965, and to be able to share this memorable episode with devoted fans of the show, as well as new viewers, will definitely be a fun treat," said Bruce Evans, Senior Vice President, Current Programming, NBC Entertainment.

"Days of our Lives" (Monday-Friday, 1-2 p.m. ET in most markets) first premiered as a half-hour drama in 1965 and expanded to an hour 10 years later. Today, it remains a consistent favorite among viewers of daytime television serials and continues to lead the competition among younger female viewers.
