Fox To Bring 'Archie' Drama To Television With 'Riverdale'

Fox is looking to bring the world of Archie Comics to television with a modern-day one hour drama called 'Riverdale'.

The network has hired 'Arrow' and 'The Flash' producer Greg Berlanti to produce the series based on the characters from the long-running comics.

It will follow Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead and friends as they deal with life in the small town of Riverdale and the secrets that lie within.

"This is a historic moment for Archie Comics, and we couldn't be happier to partner with Fox, Warner Bros. and Greg Berlanti to bring our characters to television," says Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater. "Greg and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa are experts when it comes to making great, compelling television and bringing beloved comic book creations to life on the screen."

"They're the perfect team to welcome viewers to Riverdale."

"This is something we've been working on for awhile now, figuring out the best way to bring these characters to life for what will be, essentially, the first time."

"The entire team working on Riverdale is as passionate about Archie as Jon and I are, so it feels like the stars have finally aligned for Archie and the rest of the gang."
