The CW

Who: Greg Berlanti (exec producer); K.J. Apa, Cole Sprouse, and lots of other CW 'hot young things'

What: Archie, Jughead, and the rest of the gang from the comic get a TV adaptation in the form of this teen drama.

Why: This is promising a darker, more grown-up version of the story, which is an interesting route to take. It looks like it'll explore the dark side of the town and their lives, with some murder mystery for good measure. The CW and Berlanti have an increasingly good track record together, and early signs are promising.

Where & When: The CW, January 26


NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far. A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
