B&B's Brad Bell previews Jacob Young's return as Rick & big story for Stephanie!

Brad Bell, the executive producer and head writer of the three-time Daytime Emmy Award winning drama series, The Bold and the Beautiful revealed to TV Guide what his plans are for bringing the character of Rick Forrester back to the canvas … this time played by returning vet, and Emmy winner, Jacob Young! And in addition, as  fall heads full steam ahead, what is Bell going to write for Emmy contention? You know, that big social story that has won them award after award, and who will it center around?  He fills TVG in.

But first, Jacob Young, who audiences just saw fire a gun in the direction of Erica Kane on Friday’s finale of All My Children returned today to B&B.  And, Bell had this to say as a preview of what is tom come of Rick’s return!  “Rick will eventually team with brother Thorne in a vicious battle with Ridge over control of Forrester Creations. And that’ll force Rick’s mom and Ridge’s lady love, Brooke to choose sides. Ridge will become more drunk with power and driven by ego and that really pisses off Rick.”

And as far as if Rick will get entangled in former flame, Amber’s drama again, it  looks like it according to Bell!  “Amber’s not at the top of her game right now and she’s a bit desperate. She will reach out to Rick, the love of her life, and try to bag the guy. But he knows what he’s dealing with, so he’s going into this hookup with eyes wide open.”

Bell then revealed he has major plans ahead for Stephanie Forrester for a big story in November that will give Susan Flannery a chance to shine again, and something he may look to take all the way into the Emmys! “It is something that’s really going to stretch her as an actress and be very revealing. Her character, Stephanie, will be struggling with an issue that’s very present in society. It’s going to challenge our matriarch in a way she’s never been challenged before.”

Any thoughts on what it could be? We have our guesses.

I actually followed Jacod Young from B&B to AMC years ago and I am now obsessed with AMC and pray for it to continue online, but I have now pledged my afternoon soap loyalty to CBS. I can’t wait to see what Debbie Morgan and Jacob Young bring to the table this time. ABC/Frons’ loss is a gain for CBS. I wish them much success.

Stephanie should lose Eric to Jackie and it will put some fire in his role, he turned intonanold man when he went back to Stephanie. He also looks like a wimp when he forgives her of all the awfulthings she has done. Jackie would be the best choice for him she is sexy and he is to when he is allowed to be.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
