Agnes Nixon Brief Biography

Agnes Nixon
Agnes Nixon (ne Eckhardt; December 10, 1922 - September 28, 2016) was an American writer and producer. She is best known as the creator of soap operas such as One Life to Live, All My Children and Loving. Having a key role in the production of these programs, she was either executive producer or consulting producer for all three shows for many years: on One Life to Live from 1968-73, All My Children from 1970-81 and Loving from 1993-95.

Nixon continued to write for All My Children with Wisner Washam until 1983, and again with him and Lorraine Broderick from 1988 to 1992, continuing on as a consultant. From 1970 until 1989, every episode of All My Children was written by either Nixon or her protgs Washam and Broderick, although Nixon's role with One Life to Live was more limited once she surrendered the day-to-day aspects of the show in 1975. Because of her long career and the number of successful shows she created or was a part of, she is often referred to as the "Queen" of the modern soap opera.
