Have you been watching Ambitions on the OWN Network? Did you know it’s filmed in Georgia? Even more exciting than that, did you know it was created in Georgia? One more - did you know the writers’ room was run in Georgia?

Jamey Giddens, creator of the show, came on AFC to discuss all this and the origins of the show. Jamey is an expert on soaps and has been part of the Daytime Confidential podcast for quite some time - in fact, that’s how the show came about. Plus, Jamey drops some hints on what happens in the next episode airing Tuesday 7/23!
