The CW is returning with one of the iconic series in the genre, Dynasty. The network is teaming with The O.C. creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage to reboot Dynasty.
The new Dynasty 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.”
Schwartz and Savage are writing and executive producing the project along with Sallie Patrick. The project hails from the duo’s Fake Empire production company in association with CBS TV Studios. They have teamed with Revenge writer-producer Sallie Patrick and the original series’ creators, husband-and-wife duo Esther Shapiro & Richard Shapiro, for a new modern-day reboot of the classic series. CBS TV Studios is the studio.
