The CW plans to reboot the classic soap opera Dynasty with the help of some famous friends.
The Hollywood Reporter announced that The CW has joined forces with Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, creators of The O.C., to reboot the soap. Richard and Esther Shapiro, creators of the original Dynasty, are on board for the new project along with Limitless writer Sallie Patrick.
Hollywood Reporter shared the shows log line:
“The Rolls Royce of all primetime soaps, returns in a modernized reboot that follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children. 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 — from reality TV to the polling booths — this epic drama features the one percent in all its glitz and gloss, while exposing the dark underbelly: a corrupt world built on backroom deals, betrayal, and, in some cases, murder.”
