The soap, produced by Corday Productions Inc., in association with Sony Pictures Television, is set in the fictitious Midwestern town of Salem, whose core families the Bradys, the Hortons, and the DiMeras become intertwined in multi-layered storylines, written by Gary Tomlin ("All My Children," "Another World") and Christopher Whitesell ("As The World Turns," "The Young and the Restless").

Days of our Lives has been nominated 215 times, winning 32, at the Daytime Emmy Awards.
