“Katy Keene” will be produced by Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. TV with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Archie Comics CEO/Publisher Jon Goldwater serving as executive producers.
Katy Keene’s comic origins date back to 1945 when she was introduced in the pages of Wilbur Comics #5 by Bill Woggon. The model, actress and singer was known for her impeccable taste in fashion. Katy’s comic book series were well-liked for including fan-submitted fashion designs and fun reader activities.
