"Riverdale" - The "Archie Comics" TV Pilot



The CW, home of comic book adaptations "Arrow", "The Flash" and "Legends Of Tomorrow", greenlit a "Twin Peaks"-like one-hour TV pilot titled "Riverdale", based on the "Archie Comics" characters, that will hopefully be a live-action showcase for many Archie Comics characters, including superheroes that predate Marvel and DC:


"...from producer Greg Berlanti, the 'Riverdale' pilot will offer a bold, subversive take...


"...on 'Archie', 'Betty', 'Veronica' and their friends...


"...exploring small-town life and the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath the wholesome facade.


"The show will focus on the eternal love triangle of 'Archie Andrews', girl-next-door 'Betty Cooper'...


"...and rich socialite 'Veronica Lodge'...


"...with the entire cast of characters from the comic books -- 


"...including Archie's rival, 'Reggie Mantle'...


"...and his slacker best friend, 'Jughead Jones'.


"Appearances will also be made by "Josie and the Pussycats"..."
