Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl producer Greg Berlanti is developing a TV adaptation of Archie Comics, called Riverdale…

Not content with having Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends Of Tomorrow on his slate, Greg Berlanti is now developing another comic book TV series. The CW has ordered a pilot for Riverdale, a Berlanti-produced project based on the immensely popular Archie Comics.

Riverdale will lift characters from the Archie Comics and place them in the modern day. It will offer, we’re told, “a surprising and subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica and their friends, exploring the surrealism of small town life — the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome façade.”

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa – Chief Creative Officer of Archie Comics, and regular Supergirl writer – wrote the Riverdale pilot. Suprisingly enough, The CW has referred to this script as a ‘darker take’ on the colourful characters of Archie Comics. »

Watch: 10-Year-Old Lindsay Lohan in ‘The Parent Trap’

29 January 2016 9:00 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Remember how brilliant Lindsay Lohan was in “The Parent Trap”? More than just little-kid cute, she made portraying two diametrically different twins look easy, using her expressive features and innate charm to give the classic comedy a fresh twist. Playing both Annie and Hallie James paved the way for other fun roles in reboots for Lohan—“Freaky Friday” and “Herbie: Fully Loaded”—followed by a slew of compelling performances in “A Prairie Home Companion,” “Bobby,” and, of course, “Mean Girls.” If the launch of Lohan’s career could be traced to any one moment, it might be the screen test below. Opposite “Parent Trap” co-star Dennis Quaid as her character’s father, the 10-year-old Lohan recites her lines with such convincing naturalness, it’s almost jarring when the two actors break character. Screen tests can be scary, especially for young actors on the cusp of booking a big role. But »

Freeman, Brody Join "Start-Up" Series

27 January 2016 6:50 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Streaming service Crackle has ordered ten episodes of the drama series "Start Up" which stars Adam Brody, Martin Freeman, Edi Gathegi and newcomer Otmara Marrero.

Ben Ketai created the Miami-set series which follows a brilliant, yet controversial tech startup idea incubated by three strangers forced to fund it with dirty money, form an alliance with a Haitian gang to keep it operating, and stave off an FBI agent (Freeman) and financial crimes specialist who holds far too much power and has questionable loyalties.

Ketai wrote the episodes and will also direct and executive produce. Brody also produces the series which Relativity Television's freshly renamed Critical Content division will create.

Filming begins this week in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The project marks the second scripted show on the Crackle service following the Dennis Quaid-led "The Art of More" which was recently renewed.
