“KATY KEENE”

Midseason on The CW

KATY KEENE follows the lives and loves of four iconic Archie Comics characters —

fashion legend-to-be Katy Keene (Lucy Hale), singer/songwriter Josie McCoy (Ashleigh

Murray), performer Jorge Lopez/Ginger (Jonny Beauchamp), and “It Girl” Pepper Smith (Julia

Chan) — as they chase their twenty-something dreams in New York Citytogether.

Katy designs clothes for anyone she can, including her friend and roommate Josie, whose

singing talent catches the attention of Alexander Cabot (Lucien Laviscount), 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 (Camille Hyde), 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 (Katherine LaNasa), who is a legendary personal shopper. But

Katy has the support of her longtime boyfriend, KO Kelly (Zane Holtz), 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.

A spinoff of the hit series “Riverdale,” KATY KEENE is from Berlanti Productions in

association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers

Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Riverdale”), Roberto AguirreSacasa (“Supergirl,” “Riverdale”), Michael Grassi (“Riverdale,” “Supergirl”), Sarah

Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Riverdale”) and Jon Goldwater (Archie Comics

Publisher & CEO.)
