HomeTVThe Bold and the BeautifulBold and Beautiful’s Brad Bell on Reason For Location Shoot: “Italy Has Been Good to Us” Jamey Giddens May 11, 2012 The Bold and the Beautiful 1 Comment Several cast and crew members of CBS Daytime's The Bold and the Beautiful are having a bellissima time in Puglia, Italy this week. The 30-minute serial has been on location in the country, shooting the upcoming wedding of troubled fashionista Hope Logan (Kimberly Matula) to publishing heir Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton). While B&B is insanely popular all over the world, the soap is especially beloved in Italy, where it is called simply Beautiful. News of the location shoot has been making countless mainstream headlines. Here's what executive producer and head writer Brad Bell told the Associated Press about his decision to embark on the splashy shoot: "Italy has been good to us, we want to give exposure to Italy and do business with a country so close so our hearts," said Bell. I know a lot of B&B fans online are growing a bit weary of the Hope/Liam/Steffy triangle dominating B&B's storytelling (this one included), but the very fact that any soap can still afford to do an old school, glam location shoot like this, is major cause for celebration!

It’s my dream to seem Jason Morgan and Elizabeth Webber from GH honeymoon in Italy! Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
