Born in Chicago, Illinois on June 29, 1964, Bell is one of three children born to the legendary television pioneers, Lee Phillip Bell, an Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist and talk show personality and the late Emmy Award-winning William J. Bell, who along with his wife created two of the most popular daytime dramas ever, The Young and the Restless (1973) and The Bold and the Beautiful (1987).

After graduating from the Chicago Latin School, Bell attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and concluded his studies at UCLA, majoring in television production.

With two years on the writing staff of The Young and the Restless in the mid 1980s under the guidance of his father, Bell was integral in the creation and launch of The Bold and the Beautiful in 1987 being a member of its writing staff. Bell was promoted to associate producer in 1989 and again to supervising producer in 1992. Bell took over the reins of The Bold and the Beautiful from his father, becoming head writer in 1993, and then executive producer in 1995. He has remained in those positions ever since and has won 4 Daytime Emmy Awards as writer and producer.

Bell has been married to fellow Chicagoan Colleen Bell since October 1991 and is the proud father of Bradley Chasen, Caroline Catherine, Charlotte Cordelia & Oliver Phillip.
