John McCook (Eric, B&B)Soapdom congratulates The Bold and the Beautiful. The international favorite soap opera will celebrate 21 years since its premiere on the CBS television network this Sunday, March 23, 2008.  Since the series’ premiere on March 23, 1987, The Bold and the Beautiful has garnered critical accolades, over 40 Daytime Emmy®-Awards and worldwide acclaim, having been named the most watched daily dramatic serial in the world by Médiamétrie, viewed in over 150 countries.

“Twenty-one years on television has been a remarkable, collaborative achievement,” said Executive Producer and Head Writer, Bradley P. Bell. “We have an extraordinary, cast, crew, and staff, who have made the last two decades a pleasurable and incredible journey. Our success is due to them, to CBS, whose support has been integral, and to our viewers for their unwavering devotion.”

Created by the late daytime drama legend William J. Bell and his wife, Lee Phillip Bell, their son Bradley P. Bell took the helm of the show in 1992. For over two decades, set among the glitz, glamour and glory of Los Angeles, and traveling from the canals of Venice, Italy to the skyscrapers of Sydney, Australia to the tropical beaches of St. Thomas back to the Rodeo Corridor in Beverly Hills, The Bold and the Beautiful has explored the entangled lives, passionate loves, high-stakes battles, loyalties, tragedies, and the inspiring triumphs of the Forrester, Logan, Marone and Spectra dynasties.  With romance, sensuality, complex characters and intricate and compelling storylines, The Bold and the Beautiful is, at its core, a compelling tale of high fashion glamour, honor and most importantly, family.
