The CW's Dynasty reboot from Gossip Girl team greenlit

Written by Kyle Jarrow, in "Valor", the boundaries between military discipline and human desire are tested on a US Army base that houses an elite unit of helicopter pilots trained to perform clandestine global and domestic missions. Because Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the duo behind the TV show based on the series of the same name, are going to be rebooting another iconic TV show: Dynasty.

Similar to the original show, the revival will follow a similar storyline of two wealthy families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, feuding, just this time with more diversity.

Dynasty has been the one to beat at the CW this season, emerging as a favorite before the network's executives had even officially heard the pitch and landed the project for development. It's been a very competitive season at the CW, with all six pilots coming in strong.

From "Gossip Girl" creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage and CBS TV Studios and Fake Empire, the modernized "Dynasty" will chronicle the lives, loves and feuds of two of the wealthiest families in the USA - the Carringtons and the Colbys - and will be told through the perspective of Fallon and Cristal. The series "will focus on Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll), the daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington, and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal (Nathalie Kelley, UnReal), a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America's most powerful class". Patrick will serve as showrunner.
