THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL will head to Italy this May to shoot eight to ten episodes in the southern coastal region of Puglia, and in and around the Masseria San Domenico and Borgo Egnazia resorts. The episodes will shoot from May 7 through May 11, and air in late Spring. (Unfortunately for Italian viewers, they won’t see the shows featuring their country until next Spring!) At least five cast members will travel to Puglia for the remote shoot, including Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) and Ronn Moss (Ridge); additional actors will be announced at a later date.
“I am excited to feature another gorgeous Italian region on B&B,” says executive producer and headwriter Bradley Bell. “Brooke, Ridge and our other characters will find out that even in the remote location of Puglia, you can’t run away from the drama.”
The Puglia remote will mark the fourth time that B&B has done a location shoot in Italy. They traveled to Lake Como in 1997, Venice in 1999 and Portofino in 2002. The soap also filmed episodes in Sydney, Australia, in 2007, in both Aspen, CO, and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, last year, and returned to Aspen for a second remote shoot this month.
