B&B executive producer Bradley P. Bell says, "We have a big location shoot
planned in October somewhere in Europe, and I can't say exactly where just yet,
but it's someplace spectacular!" He explains that the show sells to many
different global stations, "so it's time that we go and visit these other people
that are buying the show and watching the show, so we're really there to pay
tribute to our audiences around the world. Whenever the cast travels, I
basically grab a director, a producer, and a local crew, and we shoot. So the
cost, really, is covered by the events that they're a part of, so it's almost
the same as shooting in our studio. We found a cost-effective formula of
shooting around the world, and it's so much fun." Bell is not giving details or
which characters will be involved, but a few foreign outlets are reporting that
the secret location will be Amsterdam, and its film commission confirms that B&B
has been in contact with plans to film in the Netherlands' capital.
