The Bold and The Beautiful Shows A Day In The Life Of Production On The Bradley P. Bell Stage 31 Studio!



In anticipation of their 7000th episode milestone, the creative team at CBS The Bold and the Beautiful has created a stellar time-lapse video of setting up production to make an episode of B&B come to life each day on the newly dedicated Bradley P. Bell Stage 31 at CBS!

From mounting the sets, to moving the cameras into place, and all the behind the scenes personnel who make the scenery in which the Forresters, Logans, and Spencer families come to life and enact in every day, this video is a celebration of the achievements of the series as it gets set to air its 7000 episode on January 23, 2015!

This week as we previously reported was the dedication of the Brad Bell studio, as you will see the plaque in his name in the video.  Make sure to join in the conversation on social media throughout the coming days by using #Bold7000 and/or #BoldandBeautiful

Watch the time-lapse after the jump, and then share your congratulations to Brad and the  crew for a a job well done!

That was fascinating..
Goes to show; soaps are very expensive to produce, very expensive..
Many crews to pay and the sets alone are extreme dollars..
For daytime TV the soaps go through millions..

I have never watched B&B but have tuned in for a look-see, and I dunno but the characters all seems so phony ..
For the fans of B&B– long live your soap!!!

OMG….do they have to do set up everyday like that?
Kudos to the crews and all the behind the scene hard workers.B&B ….has the most beautiful scenic and best stage designs of all the soaps.

Seems a bit tacky and pretentious to name a studio after a sitting Executive Producer. Just sayin’…..

Awesome video–thanks for posting. Would love to see something like this for GH.

How long did all that actually take?
They don’t have to do that every day, do they?
Maybe only after another production has used their studio for a while.
Anyone know?

Wow, great video. Soap fans are lucky any of these shows are still being produced, the cost must be exhorbinant.

A soap has a great many sets the crew is awesome to get them up and going in a very little time..
One thing they never build-
a kitchen ..
Most all families and friends sit in the kitchen with coffee and the deep conversations, it is in the kitchen where the action in a home takes place..
But- soaps have no ”real’ kitchens..
I always found that to be weird ..

B&B has a kitchen at the Forester manse. There have been quite a few scenes in the kitchen. On Y&R, Avery has a kitchen and it was featured prominently (too prominently) in a recent storyline. We’ve also seen Jen’s kitchen on Days. So I don’t know what this is about no kitchens on daytime.

What a beautiful video. B & B have the best & most beautiful scene’s compared to any of the other soap’s. Even the outdoor scene’s are breath taking. This is my favorite soap.

Do they have to do that everyday? That’s a lot of work. Congrats on 7,000 eps. Seems like we just celebrated 5,000.

‘The Talk’ Renewed For 15th and Final Season to End in December; Does Its Cancellation Make Room for ‘The Gates’?

Things just got very interesting over at CBS daytime with the announcement today that The Talk is going to end its run on the network after its 15th season, and that season looks to be shortened as the series will come to its conclusion in December of 2024.

In a joint statement, Amy Reisenbach, President, CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, President, CBS Studio, shared, “The Talk broke new ground when it launched 14 years ago by returning daytime talk to CBS with a refreshing and award-winning format. Throughout the years, it has been a key program on CBS’ top rated daytime line-up as it brought timely, important and entertaining topics and discussions into living rooms around the globe.”

Reisenback and Stapf added, “It goes without saying that hosting and producing a year-round talk show is no easy task, and we express our sincere gratitude to our amazing hosts Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood, our Executive Producer/Showrunner Rob Crabbe and the hardworking producing team and crew.

Giving props to those who co-hosted or worked on the show through the years including: Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen Moonves, Carrie Ann Inaba Leah Ramimi, Marissa Janet Winokur, Holly Robinson Peete and Sharon Osbourne, the joint statement added, “We also want to acknowledge our former show hosts and colleagues who contributed throughout the seasons. We truly appreciate the skill, creativity, and dedication everyone involved brought to the show every day.  And of course, we thank the numerous guests who appeared, and the millions of viewers who tuned in daily. For the final season, we plan to celebrate the show and give it the proper sendoff it deserves when it concludes in December 2024.”

While no firm decision or announcement has been given at this time, it seems most likely that The Talk’s time slot could be given to the new soap opera in development The Gates from CBS Studio Ventures and from longtime soap opera writer. Michele Val Jean.  As previously reported, The Gates features the lives of a wealthy Black family who reside in a posh, gated community.

The Talk was originally the brainchild of Sara Gilbert, who had developed the show when it launched back 2010 and it replaced the beloved As the World Turns which went off the air after 54 years when CBS canceled it.

So, what do you think of The Talk being canceled? Will this make room for The Gates to begin to air in its spot beginning in 2025? Share your reactions to the news via the comment section.
