'Riverdale' spinoff 'Katy Keene' is candy-colored fashion fantasy fun

In the beginning there was Riverdale: a crimey-wimey, absurdist take on a small town teen drama based on the wholesome Archie comic books. Then there was Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Riverdale's Satanic inverse starring a teen witch who can't stop fighting gods. Now there's Katy Keene, the third Archieverse show and the second to air on The CW as a marginally more adult urban fantasy packed with high fashion, big drama, and enough sequins to leave an aftershock of spots in its viewers eyes. Katy Keene stars Lucy Hale as Katy Keene, a department store assistant with dreams of being a fashion designer. Her friends are Jorge Lopez (Jonny Beauchamp), a dancer and drag queen with dreams of being on Broadway, Pepper Smith (Julia Chan), a woman-about-town who dresses very well, and Riverdale's freshly transplanted Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), who dreams of being a recording artist. There's also her boyfriend KO Kelly (Zane Holtz). His dreams are boxer dreams. Everybody got dreams.  Read more...More about Entertainment, Riverdale, Watch Of The Week, Katy Keene, and Entertainment
