'Riverdale' Spin-Off 'Katy Keene' Adds Jonny Beauchamp & Julia Chan

Meet the two newest cast members of the upcoming Riverdale spin-off pilot Katy Keene!

Jonny Beauchamp, 29, and Julia Chan, 35, will both star in the new CW series, opposite Riverdale‘s Ashleigh Murray.

The project hails from Riverdale creator/executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

Directed by Maggie Kiley, Katy Keene follows “the lives and loves of four iconic Archie Comics characters — including fashion legend-to-be Katy Keene and singer-songwriter Josie McCoy (Murray) — as they chase their twentysomething dreams in New York City. The musical dramedy chronicles the origins and struggles of four aspiring artists trying to make it on Broadway, on the runway and in the recording studio,” Deadline reports.

Jonny will play Jorge/Ginger Lopez: “By day, Jorge works at his family’s bodega. By night, his drag alter ego Ginger bartends and performs at a local club. Jorge always has aspired to be a Broadway performer, but he’s now looking to take his drag career to the next level.”

Julia will portray Pepper Smith, “a New York City ‘It Girl’ who is at the epicenter of all things trendy. As the funny, magnetic life of the party, she dreams of opening her very own version of Andy Warhol’s Factory. But behind all the outrageous noise, no one quite knows where she gets all her money — or if she even has any.”
