TV Time: Archie headed to The CW


Archie and his friends from Riverdale are headed to The CW.   The CW has officially picked up the pilot episode, which was once in development over at Fox for the live-action Riverdale TV series which will begin filming this spring.

The one-hour Riverdale series drama will be written by Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and will be produced by Berlanti Productions, which are the producers behind Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl.

Much like the comics The show will focus on the eternal love triangle of Archie Andrews, girl-next-door Betty Cooper, and rich socialite Veronica Lodge, and will include the entire cast of characters from the comic books—including Archie’s rival, Reggie Mantle, and his slacker best friend, Jughead Jones.

This sounds like the perfect show for The CW. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comment section below.
