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.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

OLTL Alum Renee Elise Goldsberry On Performing Her Showstopper “Satisfied” In ‘Hamilton’ Premiering On Disney+ Today

We loved her as Evangeline Williamson on One Life to Live, and the Broadway world loved her in her Tony Award-winning role as Angelica Schuyler in the musical Hamilton, which today bows on the filmed version on Disney+.  Of course, we are talking about the fabulous Renee Elise Goldsberry who has talent abounds.

In Hamilton, Goldsberry performs a showstopper “Satisfied” as Angelica makes the ultimate sacrifice giving up the man she loves Hamilton played by Lin-Manuel Miranda) to her sister for her sister, Eliza’s (Phillipa Soo) happiness.

Now taking the version of this memorable moment in the theatre and bringing it to life on film also makes for an exciting performance and piece of creative work.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times out today, Renee talks about executing this number in the show just right: “There are things that are technically challenging about that number: on top of the words, there’s the movement and the fact that we’re doing the previous number in reverse the whole time. It was a lot of things to juggle, but that was never hard, that was all intellectual. Even the rap was relatively easy. The most challenging part to sing is that final toast.This is an extremely well-written song. Every word is crafted to analytically take this woman on an emotional, life-altering decision for these three lives. That decision was such a monumentally painful and beautiful thing to do that by the time I’d get to that moment in which she makes that decision, I was so devastated that it was hard to sing that toast. She’s conflicted because, clearly, she wants to stay around this guy, she recognizes his brilliance, but she gets that Eliza is the one. So I imagine this woman having to give this toast to this community, in spite of the pain she felt.I was always worried that somehow or another, I wouldn’t be able to live up to the brilliance of the end of that song because emotionally, I was just trying to manage it. It took me maybe until Broadway to feel OK about it.”

When asked how she felt about seeing “Satisfied” in the movie version of Hamilton available everywhere Friday on Disney+, Goldsberry added: :Seeing it from the audience’s point of view for the first time, I realized there was a whole ‘nother level of storytelling that was going on, separate from me. I mean, Howell Binkley’s lighting design!  And Andy Blankenbuehler’s brilliant choreography, which I could always only see in my peripheral vision. It’s a huge number with the entire company onstage just killing it and basically turning back time with their bodies, and I’m standing in the middle, talking out like a deer in the headlights to the audience about a burst of things that I have to grapple with immediately. I’m very grateful that he made my job much easier.”

Watch a clip of Renee’s performance in the film version of Hamilton below.

Now, let us know if you are planning to watch the highly-anticipated Hamilton over the fourth of July weekend via the comment section and if you are excited to see Renee in her award-winning winning in it?

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.
