The CW have ordered pilots for a Dynasty reboot and a new project called Searchers.
The modernized remake will follow two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children. The primetime soap 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 — the drama will feature the one percent in all its glitz and gloss, while exposing the dark underbelly that is a corrupt world built on backroom deals, betrayal, and, in some cases, murder.
Searchers follows a group of unlikely heroes who find themselves on the journey of a lifetime. Ten years after the death of their parents, a pragmatic brother and free spirited sister are forced to team up when they learn that their mother’s terrifying and bizarre stories may be a road map to discovering the great legends, myths, and unexplainable mysteries of the world.
