Broadway star Bernadette Peters is set to join the CW’s Riverdale spinoff Katy Keene.
Peters will play “Ms. Freesia,” described as “Pepper Smith’s eccentrically elegant surrogate mother and mentor” who “taught Pepper in the art of the con.” What’s more, “Ms. Freesia” is “a wealthy Upper East sider who secured her luxurious lifestyle through cunning means and is actively forming Pepper in her fabulous image.”
Fashion legend-to-be Katy Keene (Lucy Hale), singer/songwriter Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), performer Jorge Lopez/Ginger, and “It Girl” Pepper Smith — as they chase their twenty-something dreams in New York City…together.
Check out the trailer below.
Katy Keene is set to premiere within the Winter midseason.
