The opening credits of the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful appear to be filmed using the Getty Center as the backdrop. Is the image real or Photoshopped?


Even though the show has gone on location to the Santa Monica Pier and Angels Flight, the Getty image is a green-screen look-alike shot at CBS Television City. “That was a digital universe,” says producer Casey Kasprzyk of the backdrop that’s opened the show since 2011. “We wanted a worldly venue, and L.A. has become the 21st character on our show. People love the opulence and glamour.” If that’s fake, then how do we know who R.J.’s real father is?
