The CW has greenlit a Pilot set to feature a number of popular Archies Comics characters.
The pilot is currently titled Katy Keene and seems to indicate that the CW don’t want another hit Archie Comics property leaving their network. The musical dramedy will center on Katy Keene, a model, actress and singer in the comic series. However, the new show will focus on her aspirations of becoming a fashion designer in New York City.

In addition to Katy, there will be three other main characters who are also aspiring young artists. It’s not confirmed who those characters will be yet, but they will all hail from the Archie Comics mythology.
