Katy Keene has released a brand new trailer and its EP has revealed that there are crossover plans in the works.
Lucy Hale as the eponymous fashion designer and Archie Comics character, who welcomes aspiring musician Josie (Ashleigh Murray) as her new roommate. “Their world is populated with kindred-spirit starving artists, including mysterious socialite Pepper Smith (Saving Hope‘s Julia Chan) and Broadway-bound performer Jorge Lopez — and his drag queen alter ego, Ginger (Penny Dreadful‘s Jonny Beauchamp),” per the official logline. “While their climb to the top is rife with obstacles, this found family will stop at nothing to see their names in lights.” The show is set five years after the current Riverdale timeline.
Check out the trailer below.
Exec producer Michael Grassi said at TCA, “I think it’s very likely that we will be seeing some familiar faces from Riverdale crossing over to our Katy Keene show and our New York world and we’re excited about that.”
Katy Keene is executive produced by Aguirre-Sacasa, Michael Grassi, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Archie Comics CEO and Publisher Jon Goldwater. Maggie Kiley directs and executive produces. The series is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios.
