After uneven success with the likes of 90210 and Melrose Place the CW is continuing their tried and tested method of relaunching beloved soap series. The original series which ran from 1981-1989 documenting the trials and tribulations of two feuding families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, both oil rich families in Denver, Colorado.
Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage who helmed the notorious Cali teen soap “The OC.” Richard and Esther Shapiro who created the original series are also attached to the reboot which is great so hopefully it will continue to have the heart the original season possessed.
Heres the longline from the Hollywood Reporter:
The series will be told primarily 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. In an age where dynasties appear everywhere
