Greg Berlanti, the TV producer behind such successful comic adaptations as Arrow, The Flash, and the upcoming Supergirl, is working with Archie Comics on Riverdale, a live-action one-hour TV drama. Originally developed for Fox, the show has now been announced for the CW (which makes sense, since Warner Bros TV is co-producing).

As you can see from the promo art, the characters will include the usual Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead, but also Josie and the Pussycats, Kevin Keller (as confirmed in this interview), and (I’m guessing) Cheryl Blossom (based on the sly-looking redheaded cheerleader). The pilot is being written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
