Emmy-winning writer Michele Val Jean has joined the writing team of The Bold and the Beautiful after a lengthy run on ABC's General Hospital.
"I am pleased to announce that Michele Val Jean will be joining our writing team," B&B's executive producer and head writer Bradley Bell said in a statement. "With her vast wealth of knowledge, experience, and creativity, Michele is sure to be a significant addition to The Bold and the Beautiful."
