The surrealism of Riverdale. Showrunner Greg Berlanti and Archie Comics chief creative officer Robert Aguirre-Sacasa will subvert Riverdale’s wholesome image from the comics. In their live-action version, Archie and Jughead are estranged and Betty and Veronica are in cahoots and not rivals for Archie’s affection. Wait what?

Set in present day, Betty Cooper (Lil Reinhart) starts off sweet with a crush on Archie as in  the comics but chucks it all after turning to new BFF Veronica (yet to be cast) for advice.

And Jughead (The Suite Life of Zach & Cody’s Cole Sprouse) is the thinking woman’s heartthrob — a Bae — estranged from his former BFF Archie Andrews (yet to be cast).

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa wrote the pilot and is producing with Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter along with Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater for Warner Bros TV and Berlanti Productions..

CW’s Riverdale pilot is expected to film in metro Vancouver from March 14th to March 31st (dates subject to change), according to the DGC-BC Production List.
