Days of Our Lives Better Living: Cast Secrets for a Healthier, Balanced Life (Hardcover)
Greg Meng graduated from Oklahoma City University in 1979 with a degree in music, and went on to UCLA's School of Film & Television where he discovered his passion for television, entertainment and production.
Soon after leaving UCLA, Greg was accepted into the highly sought after NBC Page Program, launching his career in entertainment. After years at NBC, he was introduced to Days of our Lives and the Corday family. A trailblazer and visionary, Meng has now been Executive in Charge of Production at Days of our Lives for over 14 years, and additionally took on the role of Co-Executive Producer in 2011.
Along with his lasting endeavors in production, Greg has recently added best-selling author to his resume having penned the wildly successful Days of our Lives 45 Years: A Celebration in Photos. The coffee table book that was met with rave reviews is a collection of 45 years of Days history that provides a behind-the-scenes look into NBC's longest running scripted series. While promoting his first book, Greg was able to get a firsthand look at the great extent to which the Days family of fans look to their favorite cast for inspiration. This experience motivated Greg to author his second and much anticipated book, Days of our Lives: Better Living which features cast secrets to better and more balanced living as well as over 300 pages of behind-the-scenes, exclusive images. The wellness book is set to release September 2013.
