Late Monday night, following social media postings by a few of its cast members, more information and protocols came to light which have allowed The Bold and the Beautiful to be the first U.S. daytime drama to go back into production; following the halt in taping new episodes due to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Deadline which shared details on how B&B will handle on set and taping health protocols; the move reportedly also  makes B&B the first U.S. broadcast show back in production as well in the midst of the pandemic.

The series is hopeful that by starting production this week, that it can have new episodes for its viewers by early to mid July, but no concrete date has yet to be revealed.

Here is what we know:

*The series will go back into production tomorrow on Wednesday. June 17th.

*The cast and the crew were tested for the coronavirus on Monday, with regular testing a key part of the new protocol.

*Everyone will work shorter days with staggered call times and smaller amount of cast on set at one time. To accommodate that, some of the scripts that had been already in the can were reworked.

*The Bold and the Beautiful has hired a COVID-19 coordinator who will be on set at all times, insuring that the production follows the safety guidelines.

*And reportedly, all cast and crew members will be required to wear masks at all times except for actors when they are filming a scene.

Of note: filming will follow COVID-19 safety protocols set by LA County, the City of Los Angeles and Television City’s owner Hackman Capital Partners, and its resumption became possible after the producers reached agreements with the Hollywood guilds.

Everyone is going way overboard with this covic 19 nonsense either film normal or don’t film at all

Are you saying the millions of people who have it and the hundred thousand plus who have died are overreacting? That doesn’t sound like nonsense to me. It’s a new world out there Mark.

They are filming normally… the article states that actors won’t be required to wear masks during their scenes, just when they are not taping. And if they have to rework scripts to accommodate fewer cast members in a scene together, will that really impact the show all that much? The majority of scenes, on B&B especially, are between two or maybe three characters.

Why do you object to the requirements that have to be followed in order Bold and Beautiful to start production again? The health of all the actors and others working on the set is extremely important.

FYI COVID 19 is not the average run of the mill cold/flu virus. Google Nick Cordero then explain to his family what this COVID 19 nonsense is. Then google the medical reports detailing the damage to the lungs of Covid 19 patients. Then go on to the discussion of lung transplants performed on
COVID 19 patients. You are welcome for the education!

I am soooo happy for everyone. I think it’s great,that they have someone that is an expert at covid 19 to monitor things to keep everyone healthy. Even though we may feel like one by now, it’s best to have one so you artists can focus on your stories to share with all of us. Much Love and Happiness coming your way.

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
