It’s looking like the live-action “Riverdale” pilot has a good shot at a series pickup.
In a new report — via The Hollywood Reporter — that suggests ten pilots that are likely to receive a series order, the Archie Comics-based project is listed as number nine. According to THR, “After renewing nearly its entire scripted lineup (save for late bow ‘Containment’), The CW doesn’t have much room on its schedule. But of the network’s six pilots, another Greg Berlanti comic book show has emerged as the top dog. ‘Riverdale,’ a present-day take on the iconic Archie Comics, is considered a lock to join Berlanti’s ‘Arrow,’ ‘Flash’ and ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ at the younger-skewing network.”
Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (2013’s “Carrie”) and produced by Berlanti, “Riverdale” is touted as offering a “subversive” take on the Archie Comics mythos.
“Riverdale” stars KJ Apa as Archie Andrews, alongside Camilia Mendes as Veronica Lodge, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Cole Sprouse as Jughead, Ross Butler as Reggie Mantle, Casey Cott as Kevin Keller, Daniel Yang as Dilton Doiley, Cody Kearsley as Moose Mason, Ashleigh Murray as Josie, Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom, Marisol Nichols as Mrs. Lodge, Mädchen Amick as Alice Cooper, and Luke Perry as Fred Andrews.
