The Bold and the Beautiful production 'paused' after just one day on set to expand COVID-19 testing

Production resumed on the CBS soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful on Wednesday, which lead to another production hiatus.

Filming has been ‘paused’ at the Television City Studios in Los Angeles so the production can, ‘better accommodate the large volume of testing needed,’ according to Variety.

The long-running soap opera halted production along with dozens of other TV shows in mid-March as the coronavirus kept spreading, and it was the first show to come back under new safety guidelines, though now filming is halted yet again.

‘We have paused very briefly to modify our testing protocol to better accommodate the large volume of testing needed,’ began a statement from Bell-Phillip Television, which produces the soap opera.

‘Safety remains our top priority as we continue to move forward with the production of the Bold and the Beautiful,’ the statement added.

‘B&B filmed with cast and crew today and it was a successful first day back at work,’ the statement concluded.

Filming is now scheduled to resume Tuesday, June 23, with new episodes likely airing as early as July.

Among the several precautions being taken by the show include frequent testing of the cast and crew while filming is taking place.

There is also an on-set coordinator who oversees safety for the cast and crew, who are required to wear masks when not on camera.

The show’s safety guidelines coincide with the Los Angeles city and county requirements, and were approved by the owners of Television City Studios, Hackman Partners.

The Bold and the Beautiful executive producer Bradley Bell also made headlines on Tuesday when he revealed that some of the real partners of cast members would serve as ‘doubles’ for love scenes.

‘We’re also bringing in, in some cases, the husbands and wives of the actors as stand-ins for their [characters’] significant others,’ Bell said.

‘So if you see hands touching faces in close proximity from a wide shot, instead of a stunt double we’ll have a love-scene double, where it will be the husband or the wife doing the actual touching. Then when we edit it together, it will look like our couple on screen,’ Bell added.

The Bold and the Beautiful was renewed by CBS for two more seasons back in May, securing the show through its 35th season in the year 2022.

The Bold and the Beautiful is still a big hit after all these years, winning its time slot on a regular basis and averaging 3.2 million viewers an episode.
