Celebration time.

“B&B,” which hit the 7000th episode milestone in January, will celebrate 28 years on the air on Monday March 23 (the daytime drama debuted on March 23, 1987). The show’s head writer and executive producer, Bradley Bell made this statement in a press release:

“Twenty-eight years on television is a tremendous achievement. I work with a brilliant ensemble of cast, production crew, writers and staff. I am grateful to CBS for their unwavering support and for their longstanding commitment to ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’. None of this would be possible without the steadfast loyalty and dedication of our fans around the world.”
