The Bold and the Beautiful Projected To Resume Production In June; Although Situation Remains Fluid

Could The Bold and the Beautiful be the first daytime drama back in production following their halt due to the coronavirus pandemic which caused Hollywood TV filming shutdowns?

Deadline revealed that they are hearing that the producers of the series put out a memo to the cast and crew that the series is looking to resume production in June.

However Deadline noted: “Sources stressed that this is just a projected start date and, while the producers are making preparations, the situation remains fluid.”

In order to move filming again forward, official safety protocols endorsed by the Hollywood unions, as well as guidelines set by CBS Television City, the city of Los Angeles and the state of California need to be in place first.

This begs the overall question of what soap scenes in a global pandemic might look like given they may be required to maintain safety distance measures which could eliminate close contact by the actors in the cast and their characters.

The Bold and the Beautiful is a Bell-Phillip Television production with Bradley Bell as the executive producer.

The last original episode of B&B aired on April 23rd, since that time the series has aired theme week encore episodes.

So, hopeful B&B will jump start production in June? Weigh-in below!

If this goes on much longer it’s going to be hard to follow

You’re so right. But I must say I’m enjoying the classic episodes of Y&R. The Jack and Victor scenes are epic. I miss the old background music. Certain music was used with certain characters. It added so much to a scene.

MJ100, the old background music was the best ever and so missed.

How you produce a soap with social distancing and face masks?

Based on current LA County stay at home guidelines, tv production would fall into phase 4 or return. With the order going until at least mid-July, June production seems highly unlikely.

The first soap back may need to film outdoors. B&B and Y&R can likely afford some form of location shoot. GH can use Prospect Studios grounds that double as park sets.

Lori Loughlin Returns To Acting; Set To Reprise ‘When Calls The Heart’ Role in GAC Family’s ‘When Hope Calls’

Former Fuller House, Edge of Night, and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin, has landed her first acting role since jail time and her part in the College Admissions Scandal; where she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, accepted into the University of Southern California.

While, Jade is now also in this season’s Dancing with the Stars, now comes word that Loughlin has gotten her first acting gig since all the legal trouble, and while still on probation following her two months in jail.

Look for Lori to reprise her beloved role of Abigail from When Calls the Heart on its season two spin-off on GAC Family, When Hope Calls.

According to Deadline: Loughlin will appear in the two-part Season 2 premiere titled When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, to air on Saturday, December, 18th.  Lori was last seen on TV as Abigail in Season 6 of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart before she was let go over her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Last week, speculation began that Loughlin may be back working after a report surfaced from Mercury News  that she had been granted permission by a Boston federal judge to travel to Canada for about a week in late September-early October for “a filming production project.”

So, what do you think about Lori’s return to acting following serving jail time? Will you be watching her as Abigail on When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas? Comment below.
