Dynasty #1

Set to premiere on Wednesday October 11th at 9:00 PM on the CW network, Dynasty is expected to exceed expectations amongst old fans. After numerous attempts to recreate the original Dynasty series, CW was finally able create a successful launch. With the talented Josh Schwartz as executive producer, the show has promising results given his work on previous hits such as The O.C. and Gossip Girl. Dynasty has the bar set fairly high after the original series won the Golden Globe’s Best Television Drama Series in 1983 and scored nominations in this category 5 years in a row. However, Schwartz believes that because “we are living in an age of dynasties” there is no better timing for a remake of this series. It reveals the corrupt world of betrayal and murder by following the lives of 2 of America’s wealthiest families, The Carringtons and the Colbys, as they fight for control over their money and children. While Dynasty targets a wide age demographic including both middle-age adults who grew up being fans and teenagers watching for the first time, the outcome has potential to be an enormous success.
