Katy Keene Extended Trailer: This Is Greatest Time Of Their Lives
The CW has released the extended trailer for their upcoming Riverdale spin-off series Katy Keene, highlighting the struggles of four friends, who are trying make to make their dreams come true in New York City. Starring Pretty Little Liars vet Lucy, you can check out the video in the player below.
Meanwhile, speaking at TCA (via Deadline), co-creator Michael Grassi has confirmed that there is a possibility for a crossover in the future between Katy Keene and Riverdale.
“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 follows the lives and loves of four iconic Archie Comics characters – fashion legend-to-be Katy Keene, singer/songwriter Josie McCoy, performer Jorge Lopez/Ginger, and “It Girl” Pepper Smith – as they chase their twenty-something dreams in New York City… together.
Katy designs clothes for anyone she can, including her friend and roommate Josie, whose singing talent catches the attention of Alexander Cabot, a CEO who hopes to reboot the record label division of his father’s corporate empire. But Alexander’s dream of signing Josie to a recording contract meets resistance from Cabot Media’s powerful senior vice president Alexandra, who also happens to be his twin sister. Josie and Katy’s roommate Jorge works at his family’s bodega and has his eye on Broadway, but after a series of rejections, he hopes to take his drag performance career as Ginger to the next level. The mysterious Pepper Smith plans to open her own version of Andy Warhol’s Factory. She has the connections, but no one seems to know where she got her money – or if she really has any at all. Katy struggles to manage the pressures of her day job at Lacy’s Department Store and her very demanding boss, Gloria, who is a legendary personal shopper. But Katy has the support of her longtime boyfriend, KO Kelly, who has his own dream of becoming a professional boxer. As these aspiring artists take on the runway, the recording studio, Broadway, and the NYC social scene, they will find more than just a career in the big city – they’ll find long-lasting friendship.
The series will star Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars) as Katy Keene, Ashleigh Murray (Riverdale) as Josie McCoy, Julia Chan (Saving Hope) as Pepper Smith, and Jonny Beauchamp (Stonewall) as Jorge. It will also be featuring Camille Hyde (Power Rangers Dino Charge), Lucien Laviscount (Scream Queens), Katherine LaNasa (Big Love) as Gloria, and Zane Holtz (From Dusk till Dawn: The Series) as KO Kelly.
Executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Michael Grassi, Sarah Schechter and Jon Goldwater (Archie Comics Publisher & CEO), Katy Keene is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios.
