BBC iPlayer

Based on Archie’s Comics, Katy Keene (13x40min) follows the lives of four New Yorkers each with dreams to make it big in the worlds of fashion, Broadway, music and the arts.

This Riverdale spin-off witnesses the highs and lows of fashion designer Katy Keene (Lucy Hale), singer/songwriter Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), performer Jorge Lopez/Ginger (Jonny Beauchamp), and 'It Girl' Pepper Smith (Julia Chan) - as they chase their dreams together in The Big Apple.

As these aspiring artists take on the runway, the recording studio, Broadway, and the NYC social scene, they will find more than just a career in the big city - they'll find long-lasting friendship.

Music plays a huge role in the series, with stunning musical performances from the cast as they express through song and dance the fun, excitement and fear of making it big in New York City.

Katy Keene lands on BBC iPlayer on 25 July.

Katy Keene
Lucy Hale stars as Katy Keene, a bold, big-hearted and independent, 20-something New Yorker who aspires to be a fashion designer when she’s not working as a personal shopper at a luxury department store, Lacy’s.

Lucy says: “She’s very optimistic, very loving, very giving and she’s just trying to find her place in the world. Everyone in New York is always on the go and I’m the one person that’s just wide-eyed and smiling, but that’s her in a nutshell. She’s just happy to be alive, she loves her job, she loves her friends and she loves life.”

Josie McCoy
Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray) is Katy’s friend who has left her small town of Riverdale, for a new adventure to make it in the big city. With her eyes set on breaking into the music scene as the next Diana Ross, Josie finds herself forging new friendships, falling into new relationships, and following where the bright lights lead her and her legendary band, The Pussycats.

Jorge Lopez/ Ginger
By day, Jorge (Jonny Beauchamp) works at his family’s corner shop. By night, he turns into his drag alter ego, Ginger who bartends and performs at a local club. Jorge has always aspired to be a leading Broadway performer, but now he’s looking to take his drag career to the next level.

Pepper Smith
'It Girl' Pepper Smith (Julia Chan) is the life and soul of the party and a trendsetter. She has a desire to open her very own version of Andy Warhol’s Factory, filled with art and entertainment. But behind all the outrageous noise, no one quite knows where she gets all her money - or if she even has any.
