Celebrating 25 years in Daytime!

This week, “The Bold and the Beautiful,” which debuted on March 23 1987, will celebrate its 25th anniversary. Created by the late William J. Bell and his wife, Lee, “B&B” is currently written and executive produced by their son, Bradley Bell. Four original cast members remain with the show: Susan Flannery (Stephanie), John McCook (Eric), Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke), and Ronn Moss (Ridge).

The first, and only, daytime drama to simulcast in Spanish via SAP (Secondary Audio Program) technology, “B&B” boasts over 40 Daytime Emmy Awards, six consecutive Golden Nymph International TV Audience Awards in the ‘Telenovela/Soap Opera’ category at the Monte Carlo Television Festival, and was named the ‘Most Popular Daytime Soap Currently on TV’ by Guinness World Records.

Speaking about the anniversary, Bradley Bell said, “25 years is a tremendous milestone. It’s been an extraordinary experience. The future looks bright as we venture into the next generation of family drama mixed with laughter, tears and socially relevant stories. My gratitude to CBS for their invaluable support for the past 25 years and to our incredible fans for their dedication and loyalty.”
