A new logo was unveiled, a new series opening sequence was unveiled, and the coolest design of cupcakes every seen at any party were just a few of the fun gems that The Bold and the Beautiful had in store for its cast, invited casts, and industry professionals when they celebrated their 6,000 episode milestone this past Monday on the set of Stage 31 at CBS, the home of B&B.

Executive Producer and head writer, Brad Bell kicked off the momentous event by addressing the crowd and reviewing the accomplishments of the series, especially its current focus on important social issues of the day that have been at the forefront of the soap over the last several years. Bell then introduced the entire cast, one by one, by their tenure on the show starting with, as Bell calls them, “The Fab Four”. And with that Susan Flannery (Stephanie), John McCook (Eric Forrester), Ronn Moss (Ridge Forrester), and Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) took to the stage, and then the remainder of the cast each followed.

Los Angles city councilman, Paul Krekorian, was on hand to acknowledge Brad Bell and The Bold and the Beautiful team on the 6000th episode landmark, and its decision to tell a part of their lung cancer storyline on this special occasion and its continued efforts to bring this social issue to the world.  Krekorian stated to Brad Bell and those in attendance, “I am so happy to be here today with the most watched daytime drama on planet earth! And what a great moment it is for you, the show, and the city of Los Angeles. And, how great it was of you to use this opportunity to highlight the on-going struggle we have in this society with lung cancer.

Krekorian also recognized one of the special guest-stars of the 6000th episode, Desperate Housewives, Kathryn Joosten (who was present) for her ongoing efforts to spread the word about lung cancer and its prevention and its treatment. Joosten was then presented with a certificate of recognition from the City Council of Los Angeles. Next, Brad Bell was acknowledged with a special certificate for all of his creative achievements and what he has done for city of L.A.

When the new opening sequence was unveiled, using the most modern of technology in this digital age we live, it enhanced the B&B experience ten-fold!  All of us in the room, including On-Air On-Soaps thought it was one of the most exciting new openings of a daytime drama we have seen in a long time. It is set to hit audiences’ television screens on 2-21-2011.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.
