The Carringtons just may be back after all, in some semblance! According to TV Line on Friday, the CW has ordered a pilot for the much discussed reboot of the primetime soap classic, Dynasty.
The new version is said to be ‘racially diverse’ from Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage and Revenge producer Sallie Patrick, who know a thing or two about producing soapy fare!
The project is described as “a modernized reboot that follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children.
The story will unravel through the perspectives of two women at odds: Fallon Carrington — daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington — and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal, a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America’s most powerful class.
Good news is that Dynasty original series creators, Esther and Robert Shapiro will serve as executive producers for the reboot.
The new version of Dynasty is also promising to expose the “dark underbelly” of the 1 percent, and of “a corrupt world built on backroom deals, betrayal, and, in some cases, murder.”
So, happy to know a Dynasty pilot has been greenlit? Do you think it will be intriguing without the those soapy shoulder pads and vixens of the 80′s? Comment below.
