I guess. I mean, first it has to get picked up.
But seriously – what the heck are they smoking over at Archie Comics? They finally get a TV pitch, and they say it’s gonna be like David Lynch and have zombie Halloween episodes? That’s like pitching a Batman series without Batm…what? Right.
Here’s what Chief Creative Officer and writer of the pilot Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said to Comic Book Resources:
“Riverdale” is “Archie Meets ‘Twin Peaks.'” You know how we’re doing “Archie Meets Predator”? This is “Archie Meets David Lynch.”
…if, god willing, this works out the way we all want it to work out, every Halloween we’ll be doing an “Afterlife” episode of “Riverdale.”
Of all the properties to get grim and gritty reboots, I must say this wasn’t one that ever occurred to me.
