The cast of Katy Keene attended this year’s Summer TCA Tour for The CW’s all-star party and also for a Q&A panel session. Check out photos of Zane at the event in our gallery, along with portraits taken there. Huge thanks to my friends Mouza and Jess for the help!


The official trailer of Katy Keene is out, and it gives us our first look on Zane as K.O. Kelly! Check it out below, and a promotional photo in our gallery.

The CW has announced their Fall 2019 schedule, and Katy Keene is being held for midseason debut. In the meantime, here’s the teaser trailer!

A RIVERDALE spinoff, KATY KEENE follows the lives and loves of four iconic Archie Comics characters — fashion legend-to-be Katy Keene (Lucy Hale), singer/songwriter Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), performer Jorge Lopez/Ginger (Jonny Beauchamp), and “It Girl” Pepper Smith (Julia Chan) — as they chase their twenty-something dreams in New York City…together. Katy designs clothes for anyone she can, including her friend and roommate Josie, whose singing talent catches the attention of Alexander Cabot (Lucien Laviscount), a CEO who hopes to reboot the record label division of his father’s corporate empire. But Alexander’s dream of signing Josie to a recording contract meets resistance from Cabot Media’s powerful senior vice president Alexandra (Camille Hyde), who also happens to be his twin sister. Josie and Katy’s roommate Jorge works at his family’s bodega and has his eye on Broadway, but after a series of rejections, he hopes to take his drag performance career as Ginger to the next level. The mysterious Pepper Smith plans to open her own version of Andy Warhol’s Factory. She has the connections, but no one seems to know where she got her money — or if she really has any at all. Katy struggles to manage the pressures of her day job at Lacy’s Department Store and her very demanding boss, Gloria (Katherine LaNasa), who is a legendary personal shopper. But Katy has the support of her longtime boyfriend, KO Kelly (Zane Holtz), who has his own dream of becoming a professional boxer. As these aspiring artists take on the runway, the recording studio, Broadway, and the NYC social scene, they will find more than just a career in the big city — they’ll find long-lasting friendship. Executive produced by Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (“Supergirl,” “Glee”), Michael Grassi (“Riverdale,” “Supergirl”), Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”) and Jon Goldwater (Archie Comics Publisher & CEO), KATY KEENE is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios.

CW has given series orders to three of their pilots, and one includes the Riverdale spin-off, Katy Keene. Hope we get a teaser soon. Congratulations to Zane!

I didn’t want to post anything here until the official news or announcement, but it’s taking them too long. However, Zane has confirmed his role in the Riverdale spin-off, Katy Keene, played by Lucy Hale. He will be playing K.O. Kelly, Katy’s boyfriend. Good luck to Zane!

Update: Official news from Deadline, along with character details!

Holtz will star as Ko Kelly, a boxer with two goals in life: to fight a welterweight championship in Madison Square Garden and to marry his longtime girlfriend, Katy Keene. Born and raised in Queens, Ko is a humble, protective, salt-of-the-earth guy who makes ends meet as a personal trainer and a bouncer.

Set in a timeless New York City, as enchanting as Riverdale is moody, Katy Keene follows the titular character as she meets Josie McCoy, fresh off the bus to chase her musical dreams. Their world is populated with kindred-spirit starving artists, including mysterious socialite Pepper Smith and Broadway-bound performer Jorge Lopez (and his drag queen alter ego, Ginger). While their climb to the top is rife with obstacles, this found family will stop at nothing to see their names in lights.
