US Soap Opera to Film in Italy's Puglia Region

Here's some happy news for soap fans and Italy fans alike: Italy Magazine is reporting that popular US-based soap opera The Bold and The Beautiful will return to the country to celebrate its 25th anniversary. In 1997, the TV series chose Lake Como as its destination, Venice in 1999, and Portofino (Liguria) in 2002, and now the directors have chosen Puglia as their first location in Southern Italy.

In early May, the cast will film ten episodes that will air in Italy on the TV channel Canale 5 in the spring of 2013. Some of the soap’s most famous stars, including Ronn Moss (Ridge) and Katherine Kelly Land (Brooke) will make the trip overseas along with three other members of the cast. The episodes will be filmed in the ultra-luxury resort Borgo Egnazia in the province of Brindisi, as well as in other parts of Puglia.
