The Bold and the Beautiful To Shoot On Location In France!

Add one more exciting locale to the list of  The Bold and the Beautiful!  The CBS soap opera will shoot episodes in the French capital of Paris next week, the series announced during a press conference at the Monte Carlo Television Festival.

The Bold and the Beautiful is long overdue for a rendezvous with the world-renowned romance of Paris, France. Forrester Creations has always had its international office in Paris, and now we’re going to take our cameras in for a closer look. We will show you Paris as you’ve never seen it before,” says series Executive Producer and Head Writer, Bradley Bell.

Cast members:  Kim Matula (Hope), Scott Clifton (Liam), Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy) and Darin Brooks (Wyatt) will begin the three-day multi-episode location shoot on June 11th and the episodes will air in the U.S. on the CBS Television Network from August 6 through August 14th.  Audiences in France will see the episodes in 2016.

B&B was first aired on French state broadcaster France 2 under the title Amour, Gloire et Beauté on June 12th, 1989, where it is still broadcast today.  Given that this week is the 25th anniversary of B&B airing in France, it is fitting that the show honors its international broadcast partners with this special location shoot.

Recently the drama series  filmed episodes in Abu Dhabi and Dubai in March 2014 and will tape scenes in Monaco on today and tomorrow June 10th., during the 54th Monte Carlo Television Festival.  Other shoots have included Lake Como (1997), Venice (1999), Portofino (2002), Sydney, Australia (2007), Aspen, Colorado (2011-12), Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (2011), Puglia, Italy (2012) and Monte Carlo (2013).

So what do you think about B&B shooting in Paris?  Do you think the plot point will be a major turning point in the relationships between Wyatt, Hope, Liam?  Will the shoot serve as the backdrop to really put the new character of Ivy firmly on the canvas?  Share your thoughts below!

Oh Lord…who freakin’ cares? Can’t they bloody use the money for all these location shoots to hire some decent writers and to bring back fan favourites (you know…Forresters, Spectra’s, Marone’s)? And yet another bloody, stupid story line revolving around the biggest bore on daytime, Hope Logan???? Am I in the minority here? Is anyone else truly enjoying B&B? I haven’t watched the show in months; I keep checking boards and spoilers to see if anything new and refreshing is going to happen, not just the same old recycled crap! I want to tune in to see Sean Kanan but knowing… Read more »

I’m right there with you, mk. I’ll add that the ratings for B&B for the first week of the very expensive, heavily hyped shoot in the United Arab Emirates saw B&B losing viewers from the previous week. There’s a lesson here about spending money on glamour and externals, but not caring enough to have the story make sense or to focus on any characters other than Brooke, Bill and Ridge, and Hope and her many suitors on the home front. Seriously this show is more concerned about how this accident affects Quinn and her son, and Hope and her choice.… Read more »

Amen! This triangle is, like the show surrounding it, hopelessly dull. Wyatt and Hopeless are just giddy all the time, and Liam has transformed into a self-righteous prig. I, too, have mostly stopped watching the show, but when I do tune in, it reminds me why I quit in the first place.

mk…I am emotionally on-board with you and I totally agree!!!!! I am so sick of (1) that bland-as-hell Hope and her being torn between two brothers crap and (2) that stupid bimbo Brooke acting like such a needy nitwit when it comes to male characters on the show!!!!!

ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!

I can’t stand this trio in the photo above. I’m not a daily or even weekly fan of the show. I tune-in when I am off for the day or home at lunch. No matter when I tune-in, it always seems to be the same story.

I can see it now: Wyatt asks Hope to elope there in France…Liam grabs Hope and they take off in a helicopter but it tips and Liam falls out and goes missing in the ocean…lol

LMAO…No one at Forrester should EVER go out of the country to get married because inevitably someone is bound to fall from a great height. Steffy didn’t even need a helicopter..the girl just didn’t know how to peek off a CLIFF…OF ALL THINGS!!!

Your comment is so funny…LOL!!!!! And…as far as I’m concerned, that lovesick and dorky Liam and his idiot girlfriend Hope can BOTH fall out of a helicopter and go missing in the ocean…FOREVER!!!!! SAYONARA!!!!!

Awesome! I think it’s a great idea and I love seeing these location shoots. Too bad we won’t see Thorne as he works there.

I guess I may be one who only watches because I like Hope and Liam together. I think Wyatt is as off as his mom. I haven’t seen Brooke and nuRidge together enough to see if they have the same chemistry as Brooke and oleRidge but I like Brooke with Bill but I don’t like Katie with either nuRidge or Bill. The only reason I watch this show is because of Hope and Liam and Brooke and Ridge/Bill. I really hate to say this but if Wyatt and his crazy mom stay on the show I do believe I won’t… Read more »

Brooke – how many marriages; how many men stories so tireeeeed; and Hope/Liam are so boooring.
I would rather have Steffy, Felicia, Bridget, Quinn, Decan, Katie, Ridge, Bill, Thorne, CJ, Amber.

Everyone is so dramatic on this. First I want to point out that this is the first time in ages that there have been as much storylines going on as there have been since the 2014 season started and may I point out that you are meant to hate Quinn. Come on don’t deny it you all love hating her. You have loved watching her spiral out of control. Its how I used to feel about Bill with all his schemes and when he got caught it was awesome. So dont deny that your all going to love it that… Read more »

Please Stop The Madness – I will probably be giving up B&B soon – I fear for my sanity if Hope-Liam- Wyatt goes on any longer. I am sick to death of it.
Enough already – – Somebody please think of something new.
Please Where is Ridge and Katie?

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
