When you're the world's most-watched soap opera, it should come as no surprise that you'd travel around the world and film episodes in some of the most beautiful cities in the world.
In just over a decade, The Bold and the Beautiful has traveled to the United Arab Emirates, Paris, Amsterdam, Sydney, and Puglia, Italy. Now, the Emmy-winning daytime drama is adding another stamp on its passport.
The Bold and the Beautiful recently wrapped production on a location shoot in Rome, Italy, and nearby locations. As is usually the case, B&B is being tight-lipped about exactly what takes place in the Eternal City. The Associated Press chatted with B&B's executive producer and head writer Bradley Bell and managed to wrangle a few details about what's about to play out on-screen.
"We've been to Portofino, Lake Como, we've been down to Puglia, now in Rome. It's really a dream come true," Bell shared. "This is a story about eternal love and where else should we be in the world but Rome, telling stories of eternal love? So it's a very appropriate and special backdrop."
Eternal love. Eternal love.
Is Bell merely referencing Rome's nickname of the Eternal City -- or is there another clue in there? Could there be some destiny involved?
Here's a look at the cast members that made the trip to Rome: Matthew Atkinson (Thomas Forrester), Scott Clifton (Liam Spencer), Thorsten Kaye (Ridge Forrester), Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke Logan), Annika Noelle (Hope Logan), Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter Walton), and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester).
In the AP video, Wood teased some "fun storylines coming up." There is at least one high-fashion tease in front of the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi. Oh, and there are also at least a couple of "Bridge" sightings in the B-roll footage.
You can check out the mini-featurette below and scour it for clues on your own.
