The Bold and the Beautiful made history today by becoming the world's first daytime drama to shoot episodes in the United Arab Emirates, under the creative leadership of Executive Producer and Head Writer, Bradley P. Bell.

"I've been fascinated with Dubai and Abu Dhabi for quite some time because of their spectacular skylines rising up out of the desert on the Persian Gulf and the fantastic convergence of diverse international cultures." said Bell.  

"In our story, business mogul 'Dollar Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) whisks his fiancée, 'Brooke Logan' (Katherine Kelly Lang) off to the Emirates to marry her at this new crossroads of the world. Possessive ex-husband 'Ridge Forrester' (Thorsten Kaye) follows them to impose his will on this romantic, stunt-filled action-packed adventure."

Did Bell say stunt filled?  Sounds exciting, yes?  Parts of eight episodes to be filmed this week in the UAE will air in the U.S. this year from May 23rd through June 6th, while audiences across the Middle East will see them on broadcaster Dubai One a year later in 2015.

Sarah Al Jarman, Dubai One Channel Manager, commented on the production, "We are very excited about The Bold and the Beautiful coming out to Dubai and Abu Dhabi for the filming of their episodes. We have such a strong following for the show on our channel and having the cast here, and the team, filming in the region, really makes it relative for our viewer which makes it that more engaging." She continued by saying, "Our strong partnership and collaboration with The Bold and the Beautiful team is a very long term and mutually beneficial one. B&B have warmly welcomed and engaged with our crew and presenters on their Los Angeles set and we will continue to support them during their Dubai visit."

Scenes will be filmed at the following locations in Dubai: Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai, Burj Khalifa (the world's tallest building), the Dubai Mall Promenade and the Skydive Dubai Helipad. Locations in Abu Dhabi include the Emirates Palace, along the Corniche, Yas Marina Circuit and the Marina.

During the three days of filming, Abu Dhabi-based film and television services company twofour54 is providing The Bold and the Beautiful with production services and 15 to 20 local crew.

Looks like in the late spring things will be really heating up for Brooke, Ridge and Bill.
