The Young and the Restless: Off to Paris!

at . Comments

Ever wondered why The Young and the Restless is set in the fictional version of Genoa City, Wisconsin?

It's because show creators William J. Bell and Lee Phillip Bell wanted to focus on a town near their annual vacation home in Lake Geneva.

Soon, though, the highest-rated soap opera on TV will present viewers with a change of scenery: the series is going to Paris, France!

The Young and the Restless will be shooting in Paris for the show's first-ever, on-location shoot in the City of Lights. It will coincide with the  program's upcoming 20th anniversary in France. 

While the specific actors participating in the Parisian storyline are yet to be confirmed, the week of filming is scheduled for October.
