‘Riverdale’ Spin-Off ‘Katy Keene’ Gets First Official Trailer: Watch
Fans got their first look at Katy Keene, an aspiring fashion designer, who's determined to make it in the Big Apple. Set in New York City, the series, which is pretty much Gossip Girl meets Fame meets The Devil Wears Prada, also follows the protagonist's circle of friends: Broadway performer and drag queen Jorge/Ginger Lopez (Jonny Beauchamp), socialite Pepper Smith (Julia Chan), and singer Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray) as they pursue their dreams.
"Their world is populated with kindred-spirit starving artists, including mysterious socialite Pepper Smith and Broadway-bound performer Jorge Lopez—and his drag queen alter ego, Ginger," the shows logline describes. "While their climb to the top is rife with obstacles, this found family will stop at nothing to see their names in lights.”

The show, which is based on the Archie Comics character of the same name, will take place five years after the events of Riverdale following's Josie's decision to leave town to pursue her singing career.
