The Bold and the Beautiful announces plans to head to Italy for exciting remote!

The Bold and the Beautiful  has announced that they will shoot eight to ten episodes in the stunning southern Italian coastal region of Puglia, in and around the elegant Masseria San Domenico and exquisite Borgo Egnazia resorts!

Executive Producer and Head Writer, Bradley Bell stated in a formal announcement, “I am excited to feature another gorgeous Italian region on The Bold and the Beautiful.  Brooke, Ridge,  and our other characters will find out that even in the remote location of Puglia, you can’t run away from the drama.”

The episodes will shoot from May 7th through the May 11th, and will air in the U.S. on the CBS Television Network in late spring, 2012.  Audiences in Italy will see the episodes in the spring of 2013.  At least five cast members, including Ronn Moss (Ridge Forrester) and Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke Logan), will travel to Puglia. Additional cast will be announced at a later date. 

The fictional Forresters, with their fashion empire, are global jet-setters, though the action is usually set against the bright lights of Los Angeles. This will be B&B’s fourth Italian location shoot, after Lake Como (1997), Venice (1999) and Portofino (2002). The series also shot episodes in Sydney, Australia (2007), Aspen, Colorado (2011-12) and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (2011).

You got to give The Bold and the Beautiful a round of applause they are still finding ways to do beautiful and scenic remotes to enhance their characters stories, while most of the other soaps don’t have the budget to do something like this!  Oh, those were the days.  What B&B characters would you love to see in Italy?  Let us know.

it’s wonderful news. Italy is one of the most beautiful countries in the world!!! I wish they would take Eric&Stephanie but I know Bell will probably take the young ones… I think the Lake Como and Venice trips were fantastic. I wish Darlene Conley would still be with us!!!

Probably because they have a relatively small cast. Y&R has a too large cast. They have way too many actors and way too many storylines. They need to pare down and stop hiring people.

This is great. I do love that B&B travels to locations such as Aspen, Cabo San Lucas, Brad’s houses, to do filming. It is nice. Who would I love to see in Italy? How about Thorne finding Macy there? Or Sally Spectra with her cabana boy? LOL I know that’s not going to happen. Wishful thinking. Of current cast members, I guess maybe they’re going for a fashion show. How about Rick and Amber where they reconnect? Who else is there who isn’t named Hope, Liam, or Steffy? Eric and Stephanie? I can’t really see Taylor going. Should be interesting.

I hope the Italian excursion launches Thomas and Caroline as the new supercouple.

Please let Hope and Liam get married and be happy. Steffy doesn’t know who she loves. Bill should not have so much power that he controlls everybody’s life. Bill wants Liam and Steffy together so he can have Steffy close by him. Why would Liam want the woman that HE KNOWS his dad was so in love with. There is something really wrong with this triangle of love. Maybe Hope should let Steffy have Liam so Bill can take her and break his heart. None of this is realality in anybody’s world.
