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!

Logline: In a timeless New York City, as enchanting as Riverdale is moody, aspiring fashion designer Katy Keene (Lucy Hale) meets Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), fresh off the bus to chase her musical dreams. Their world is populated with kindred-spirit starving artists, including mysterious socialite Pepper Smith (Julie Chan) and Broadway-bound performer Jorge Lopez – and his drag queen alter ego, Ginger (Jonny Beauchamp). While their climb to the top is rife with obstacles, this found family will stop at nothing to see their names in lights. Based on the Archie Comics characters.

Executive Producers/Writers: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Michael Grassi
Executive Producers: Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Jon Goldwater (Archie Comics CEO and Publisher)
Director/Executive Producer: Maggie Kiley
Based on the characters from Archie Comics
Auspices: Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios

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).
