The CW has released the first full trailer for new ‘Riverdale’ adjacent series Katy Keene.

The musical dramedy centred on the lives and loves of four iconic Archie Comics characters, including fashion legend-to-be Katy Keene and singer/songwriter Josie (of the Pussycats) McCoy (played again by ‘Riverdale’s Ashleigh Murray), as they chase their twenty-something dreams in New York City. This story chronicles the origins and struggles of four aspiring artists trying to make it on Broadway, on the runway and in the recording studio.

Lucy Hale (‘Pretty Little Liars’) stars as the twenty-something New Yorker who aspires to be a fashion designer. When she’s not working as a personal shopper at a luxury department store, she’s navigating friendship and dating in the big city. Her world is populated with kindred-spirit starving artists, including mysterious socialite Pepper Smith (Julia Chan – ‘Saving Hope’) and Broadway-bound performer Jorge Lopez – and his drag queen alter-ego, Ginger (Jonny Beauchamp – ‘Penny Dreadful’).

The show comes from ‘Riverdale’ creator Robert Aguirre-Sacasa and ‘Riverdale’ co-executive producer Michael Grassi. It is exec produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater (Archie Comics CEO and Publisher).

Katy Keene‘ launches midseason on The CW in the US (so, Early-ish 2020). There is currently no UK broadcaster, but we will let you know if and when that changes.
