Dynasty is being rebooted: here’s how not to ruin it

3 October 2016 7:14 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Carringtons and the Colbys are back in town – but can the producers of The Oc recapture the glamour and melodrama of the original series?

Throw off your cares and woes! Banish all thoughts of the forthcoming TrumpoBrexalypse and rejoice! The greatest prophylactic against despair you could ever hope for has emerged: the Carringtons and the Colbys are back in town. Yes! Let your hearts swell as majestically as the theme music did during its nine-season pomp – Dynasty is being rebooted.

Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are to executive produce it – as much, I hope, for Savage’s quintessentially 80s-style name as for their soapy bona fides as the creators of The Oc – and it will be broadcast by the CW network. In view of how important this is to the gaiety of nations and the survival of our collective mental health, I offer a few tips on how not to ruin Dynasty. »

Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the duo behind Gossip Girl, are planning their comeback at The CW.

Their vehicle? The 1980s powerhouse Dynasty.

They've teamed with Dynasty creators Esther Shapior and Richard Shapiro, and Revenge writer-producer Sallie Patrick to bring it all together.

If you're in unfamiliar territory here, Dynasty is an iconic series that ruled the airwaves in the '80s alongside Dallas. 

It is the story of the Carringtons and the Colbys, two warring families neck deep in the Denver oil business. 

At the heart of the story is Krystle, a secretary who is marrying her boss, the man of her dreams, oil magnate Blake Carrington. When she moves into the mansion before the wedding, she is welcomed by Blake's son, but not by his beloved daughter, Fallon.

The reboot would focus on a version of Krystle, this one Cristal, a Hispanic secretary also wedding her Blake and »

The CW’s Dream Team: Top Producers on Their Hit Series

23 September 2016 10:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The CW achieved early success by cleverly using the seductive wealth of “Gossip Girl” to court young female viewers. Since then, it has broadened its appeal with a mixture of superhero shows and rom-coms.

Here, five of the network’s top producers reflect on why their hit series were the right fit for the emerging network. They all credit network president Mark Pedowitz for being closely involved, while fostering a creative atmosphere.

Greg Berlanti should probably wear his own superhero cape considering his five shows on The CW this fall: “Arrow,” “Supergirl,” “The Flash,” “Legends of Tomorrow,” and “Riverdale.” He worked at ABC with Pedowitz, who lured him to the new network by telling him he could make the shows he wanted at The CW.

21 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Amazon has announced that it is set to explore the rivalry between American toy giants Hasbro and Barbie with Toy Wars, which will see Josh Gad (The Angry Birds Movie) starring and co-writing with Josh Schwartz (The O.C.) and Ryan Dixon (Opening Night).
