Soap Opera ‘Dynasty’ Getting a Reboot at the CW

The O.C. creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are set to reboot Dynasty for The CW, according to Deadline. The iconic soap opera was created by Richard and Esther Shapiro, who are attached to the new project. More from Deadline:

Co-written by Schwartz & Savage and Patrick, the new Dynasty follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children. The series 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.

This is a new spin on the premise of the original series, which focused on oil tycoon Blake Carrington (John Forsythe), whose daughter Fallon (Pamela Sue Martin) resents Blake’s much younger former secretary Krystle Jennings (Linda Evans), to whom he is about to get married. Cristal will be a version of the Krystle character in the CW version, giving it a more diverse feel.

But will the new Dynasty retain the absurd number of fights between characters?
