Series executive producer and head writer, Bradley P. Bell, said: “In television, a long-term commitment like this is rare. We are elated to celebrate this amazing joint achievement.”

Network Ten chief programming officer, Beverley McGarvey, added: “We’re thrilled that Ten will always be the Australian home of The Bold and the Beautiful.”

The producers of The Bold and the Beautiful distribute the show themselves and have sold it into over 100 countries. In the US it is on CBS and has run to over 7,000 episodes.
