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).

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 Brad Bell, he’ll only be used to prop up Brooke and Hope Logan. I just can’t tune in anymore. Uuugghhhh….

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. Also, sadly, every time B&B shows Ridge falling helplessly out of the helicopter, I burst into laughter and I don’t think that’s the result B&B intended. That moment was so cheesy and ridiculous, and I don’t believe for a single second that Ridge is dead, so why keep showing the scene? It’s like the Darla floating head. Now they’re going to Paris. Good luck with the ratings with that one.

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!!!

jaybird369

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!!!!!

Problem solved.

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 watch any more. They are just a little too much.

Debster

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.

i’m with you…Wyatt and Quinn need to leave the show or I am about to stop watching BB..

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 Quinn is getting fired this week. I am team Wyatt so obviously I’m disappointed that the triangle has at the moment come to an end however i think having hope being openly involved with both Spencer brothers was a mistake and I’m glad it didnt last long. I also can’t wait to see the France episodes No. Other soap has had this many amazing places being featured on the show. I do think that the show is missing a little old fashioned romances in the last few months so I can’t wait for that to be the refocus and congrats to Ashleigh Brewer on her casting as Ivy can’t wait to see her in action Go B&B

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?

I’m hoping that Wyatt and Hope get married. Can’t wait to see Quinn come back.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
