The Bold and the Beautiful has been the soap on the move in recent years with lush location shoots in countries all around the world.
No other American soap opera has been able to do what the CBS Daytime drama has. Now it looks like Australia is on the radar as one of the next location shoots B&B is aiming for. According to MSN.com Australia: “The Bold and The Beautiful is in talks with Qantas to bring the hugely popular series to Australia.”
A source close to the series shared: “We are going to Australia that’s for sure. We are just not sure when. We will send a location scout and write the story about the destination. We are looking for iconic, interesting historic authentic locations.”
Show Producers told AAP (The Australian Associated Press) they were not sure how long the show would stay down under: “It’s all about the story. It depends on the storyline. We are thinking about Budapest, Poland, and Flemish Belgium. But the only one that’s sure is Australia. We don’t know when it will happen. It may be 2017.”
One intriguing thing to note: The Bold and the Beautiful premiered in 1987. If the series were to shoot in Australia in 2017, it would create quite an occasion and another milestone for the series, which would then turn 30 years old.
So, what would be a good story to bring B&B to Australia? We know Ivy, and her portrayer Ashleigh Brewer hail from there! What do you think about BOLD’s ability to make locations shoots happen around the globe? It would seem that Aussie based airline company Quantas would be perfect marketing partner. Comment below!
