Claire Labine TV Writer

Claire Labine is an American soap opera writer and producer. Although she originally aspired to be an actress, Labine eventually became a critically acclaimed writer. She attended the University of Kentucky where her major was journalism, but later she switched to playwriting major at Columbia University’s School of Dramatic Arts (now Columbia University School of the Arts). After graduating, she joined the writing staff of Captain Kangaroo. After writing for the show for two years, she was fired in 1968. Labine's first foray into daytime was as a script writer for the CBS Daytime soap opera Where the Heart Is. After only a year at the show, she was promoted to the post of Head Writer in 1971, along with fellow writer and close friend Paul Avila Mayer. Although the duo increased the show's ratings their stint at the show ended in 1973, when CBS chose to take the show off the air. Soon after the end of Where the Heart Is, she became Head Writer for another CBS soap, Love of Life. Once again she was paired with Mayer. The ratings for the show rose, which brought them to the attention of rival network ABC.
