Colleen Bell, wife of Bradley Bell, head writer and executive producer of The Bold And The Beautiful, has taken on a new role. The position is based in California but isn’t in the soap world!
Bell, a former U.S. Ambassador to Hungary from 2014 to 2017, is now the new director of the California Film Commission.
This week, she was appointed to the position by Calif. Gov. Gavin Newmsom. In addition to having worked as a consultant to the film commission, Bell has held many positions at Bell-Phillip Television Productions, the company that produces BB.
Her titles/positions at the half hour soap include associate producer, director of special projects, and producer.
“I am looking forward to working in partnership with someone with Ms. Bell’s experience and qualifications as we strive to maintain California’s longstanding status as the home to the motion picture and television industry,” Thom Davis, chair of the CFC’s (California Film Commission) board of directors and IATSE (International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees) VP, told Deadline of Bell taking on the position.
“Her prior experience in the entertainment industry will further strengthen the skills and expertise of the current California Film Commission staff, which includes several industry professionals.”
The Bold And The Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for air times.
