Fans got their first birds-eye view of just how CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful became the first U.S. television show back in production during the coronavirus pandemic by figuring a way to shoot under the health guidelines and protocols presented to the TV and film industry.

In an exclusive on Thursday night’s edition of Access Hollywood, the news magazine show went behind-the-scenes to look at the filming of some of  some scenes which included the use of mannequins, life-size dolls, and a secret kissing cameo from Denise Richards’ (Shauna) real-life husband Aaron Phypers.

These scenes aired this week on B&B, which showed how Thorsten Kaye (Ridge) and Denise Richards had their exchange created with the help of mannequins, while Thorsten also had a scene with Jacqueline MacInnes Wood as his daughter, Steffy, when Steffy was in the hospital recovering from injuries sustained in a a motorcycle accident/crash. In these scenes, you see just how Thorsten had to act opposite the infamous blown-up doll!

Interviewed for the segment was Richards who explained to ‘Access’ just how they have made the mannequin magic happen to kick-start the show back into production during these unprecedented times.

Watch B&B on ‘Access’ below.  Then, let us know what you thought when you watched how the cast was acting opposite blow-up dolls ans mannequins to get their scenes done via the comment section below.

B&B is so lame for not updating the opening sequence.

Brad has done that for years I had to give up at the end of last year on the soap I got so frustrated when people were just dropped from the canvas no explanation at all just like they disappeared into thin air.

I refuse to watch any new episodes until they write Covid 19 into the stories. They are just doing a disservice by not addressing this important issue that is a part of our lives. They can’t ignore the subject forever.

We’re living it. Why do we want COVID in the soaps? And then what could they do? Just show the families quarantining at home? That would be boring.

Exec Prod Frank Valentini On GH’s Return with New Episodes: “There is a Bang and a Surprise and a Twist”

Monday, General Hospital will finally be airing a new episode – the first in months due to COVID-19 – which had previously shut down production of the show.  Now with safety protocols in place, GH will become the first ABC network show back on TV with original installments.

GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini spoke to ABC 7 Los Angeles’ entertainment guru George Pennacchio on the legacy soap opera’s return and picking up the story where things left off.

Valentini offered up for Monday’s episode: “The very first few seconds of the show, I think, will blow a lot of the audience’s mind because there’s a big surprise that we inserted in.”

Meanwhile, viewers know that their is a major custody case going on for Wiley/Jonah, and that Mike’s (Max Gail) battle with Alzheimer’s could wrap in the coming months if the story continues as it had before the shut down.

However, Valentini shared that fans have some very exciting things to look forward to on GH: “There is a bang and a surprise and a twist and it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

In addition, Pennacchio reports that the GH Nurses’ Ball will return sometime in August, which usually airs in May, but didn’t, because of COVID-19 this past spring.

As to how GH will handle the love scenes, the kisses, and the intimate moments between characters which are a staple of the genre during the health crisis, Frank expressed:”Physical intimacy is limited.  We’re going to leave a lot more to the imagination.”
