Off to another locale, are they? Yes, the international smash The Bold and the Beautiful continues its string of beautiful locale from around the world to incorporate into their stories! This time the backdrop will be the canals of Amsterdam for a romantic story filming the first week of October, the series announced today.
According to series EP and head writer, Brad Bell: “While in the Netherlands for a Forrester Creations photo shoot, one couple finds love while another is falling apart. The action takes place over seven episodes, and we are very excited about showcasing the beauty of Amsterdam during our shoot.”
Cast members Ashleigh Brewer (“Ivy Forrester”), Darin Brooks (“Wyatt Spencer”), Scott Clifton (“Liam Spencer”) and Kim Matula (“Hope Logan Spencer”) will take part. Dutch actor and singer Ferry Doedens has also signed on to guest star as Forrester Creations’ local public relations executive, a role created especially for episodes filmed in Amsterdam. Episodes will air in the U.S. on the CBS Television Network in November 2014 and in the Netherlands in 2015.
Among the many other locations featured will be the exteriors of historic Hotel de L’Europe, a five-star luxury hotel overlooking the Amstel River in the heart of Amsterdam. Netherlands-based Stepping Stone Productions will assist the B&Bcrew during filming.
The CBS soap opera filmed episodes in Paris and Monte Carlo in June 2014, and in Abu Dhabi and Dubai in March 2014.
