    Riverdale (CW) - Original KSiteTV Thread

    http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/10/23/archie-tv-series-fox/

    Greg Berlanti is currently developing an Archie TV show for Fox. We sure are seeing a flood of comic book based TV shows.

    I read about that. I'm not really familiar with Archie. I did use to watch Josie and the Pussycats on Cartoon Network when I was younger.

    Really interesting interview over at CBR where Aguirre-Sacasa talks about what we can expect:

    Annual Afterlife with Archie episodes? I could be down for that!

    I am deeplly conflicted about this news. I am a longtime Archie fan and hearing they were doing a series made me smile. On the other hand, I'm not too sure about the direction they'll be taking. I suppose I'll reserve judgement until we know more. And does anyone know if we'll get any Sabrina? (My fave character of all from Archie Comics.) I know she had her own show (Melissa Joan Hart's Sabrina the Teenage Witch, of course) but I would love to see her pop in on occasion or perhaps be referenced in some way (in the comics, she actually lives in a nearby town so there's a way to have her 'visit' from time to time).

    I'm sure we'll get Sabrina if it happens... especially if they do Afterlife With Archie episodes. Sabrina's a big part of that, and has a new comic now in that "world," too.

    Cool. Yeah, she could pop up now and again (like you said, in the Afterlife with Archie episodes).

    So now this is going to be a CW show, right? No longer on Fox?

    Yes if it gets picked up it will be on CW.

    Oh, hadn't realized it hadn't been picked up yet. I thought Fox had picked it up then decided to give it to the CW. Thanks for the info!

    (I do think the CW is a better fit for it, in any case.)

    the casting breakdowns (what the casting directors will be looking for) have been released. This...? I'm a little worried about this. A buff!Archie? Betty with an "emotionally brittle" Mom (and a Goth sis)? Juggie and Archie on the outs with each other?

    Um....

    Reminds me a little of the failed attempt at a live-action series based on Clerks Kevin Smith talked about with that casting breakdown Welling.

    Now we know it's being done as a pilot for The CW...

    ...and I think as long as the casting is good, it's going to be great.

    Casting is so vital to any show/movie/media. John Rhys-Davies once said "if you do your casting right, you've done 90% of your job". So true.

    I'm still a little unsure about the changes but am willing to give this a shot.

    I saw the news. Don't know anything about Lili (though she looks pretty good). Cole's work I know and I think he should be a good Juggie except he will have to dye his hair black (my first thought when I heard he'd been cast in Riverdale was that they'd picked him to Kevin Keller).
