|"Riverdale" Fan Trailer // Not Images from Fox!!|
“Riverdale” offers a bold, subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends, exploring the surrealistic twists of small-town life plus the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome facade. Set in the present in the small fictional town of Riverdale, New York. The show will focus on the eternal love triangle of Archie Andrews, girl-next-door Betty Cooper, and rich socialite Veronica Lodge, and will include the entire cast of characters from the comic books—including Archie’s rival, Reggie Mantle, and his slacker best friend, Jughead Jones. Popular gay character Kevin Keller will also play a pivotal role. In addition to the core cast, “Riverdale” will introduce other characters from Archie Comics’ expansive library, including Josie and the Pussycats."Riverdale" will be produced by Greg Berlanti's Berlanti Productions and written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

After reading the article, learning the name of the program, and seeing the series description, I couldn't help thinking about the parody trailer for a fictional "Riverdale" movie. If you haven't seen it, you should do it. Right now. I'll wait.
It's their senior year in high school. Betty sacrifices her virginity to the boy who cannot commit -- only to find that sex has consequences. Jughead stuffs his face full of food in order to cope with his unrequited love for Archie. Reggie spirals downward in a world of sex and drugs. A steroid-hopping Moose erupts violently in a jealous rage. And Dilton gets ostracized one time too many. It's nearly four minutes of greatness.
If we're lucky, Fox's "Riverdale" will be done right like this fan film. Time will tell...
