B&B Joins Forces with United Friends of the Children for Special Episodes Next Week!

Three-time consecutive Daytime Emmy Award-winning, The Bold and the Beautiful, adds another page to their history book of bringing public awareness to serious social issues as they join forces with United Friends of the Children (UFC) for two very special episodes to air on Tuesday, December 13 and Wednesday, December 14, 2011.

“Through our partnership with UFC, we are able to alert our viewers to the predicament facing our nation’s young adults who have aged out of the foster care system”, says B&B’s Executive Producer and Head Writer, Bradley P. Bell. “It is also another step in the journey of the character of ‘Stephanie Forrester’ to continue to keep her promise to help those less fortunate than herself.”

In these stand-alone episodes, Beverly Hills socialite and matriarch of one of the country’s most successful fashion houses, “Stephanie Forrester” (portrayed by multi-Daytime Emmy Award-winner Susan Flannery), along with “Hope Logan” (portrayed by Kim Matula), follows former foster child, “Beverly” (portrayed by Gina Rodriguez), and “Dayzee Leigh” (portrayed by Kristolyn Lloyd) to the transitional living facility that “Beverly” has been living in ever since she aged out of California’s foster care system.  At this home, known as “Pathways”, Stephanie and Hope meet with real-life residents of the facility and listen to stories about how they have been coping with life after foster care with the assistance of United Friends of the Children. The United Friends of the Children is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bettering the lives of foster children and supporting former foster youth in their journey to become successful and independent adults. Through their programs, advocacy efforts, and direct involvement with youth, United Friends of the Children seeks to be a catalyst for change.

I am sorry but Brad Bell is all over the map this show is so out there. We do stupid campy storylines and then throw in infomercials! And if they do have the Emmys and he gets another one I will know they are all nuts!

This will not happen if Steffy succeeds in sabotaging the gondola Hope and Stephanie need to ride to the transitional living facility.

And when all is said and done, can everyone turn off the good will and get back to the endless family bickering and near incest?

It really could be different and a truly winning serial.

I think it is very admirable that Brad Bell & Company will highlight an issue not many people are aware of. I will be watching these episodes and if they live up to the billing of their last couple of Emmy winning reels that they end up submitting, do not be surprised if they’re in the hunt for another Outstanding Drama Series Emmy. Will they get it again next year? That all depends on what the other shows who end up being nominated submit for Emmy consideration. I watched Y&R all year and they don’t have a leg to stand… Read more »

Here we go again with the emmy baiting shows. Brad Bell really truly knows how to manipulate and deceive this terrible flawed system better than anyone. It’s so obvious and clear what goes through his mind with these social issues. Just slap together his annual PSA episode and submit that one single reel and get unfairly undeservingly rewarded when the rest of the year is the most boring recycled sleaze on the air. It’s a complete and total joke that best drama series isn’t based and judged on the full year. B&B would never get a nomination or a win… Read more »

Days of Our Lives has always been treated as the step child. For some reason voters treat this show like dirt, when I use to watch it and I am going to start again, their actors etc. were always snubbed. I am sorry but I still don’t get B&B it is crazy then you throw a social issue at us strictly for an emmy it turns me off. But that is just my opinion.
