    LOL. No, seriously - LOL. My lips are sealed, though.

    That's a fair point. But then again, why not do it? They might stumble upon something great by re-developing an already established concept. Or it'll be hideous. But, why not give it a shot? Either way, it can't possibly hurt the old show (which used to hurt itself anyway).

    (And is the use of an old concept that much more expensive than starting from scratch? Maybe yes, maybe not. I don't know.)

    Well Cristal is Hispanic and Sammy Jo isn't at all like you'd expect. That's pretty different. The house will be different. I bet it's very, very, very different.

    It would be more expensive to license it from the Shapiros I would imagine than to hire a rookie writer to come up with a new soap. They own the brand, the name etc. But they didn't invent the genre. Didn't we learn a while back that one of the reasons that the various DYNASTY restart attempts didn't go anywhere was because the Shapiros and their partner (cant remember his name, but he's like a billionaire producer) wanted more money than anyone was willing to put up?

    I also don't think it'll be set in Colorado.

    Yes, that does seem likely.

    I do admit having Dynasty on The CW is quite strange. I understand the corporate background, it's owned by Paramount which owns CBS and The CW, but the show doesn't really fit the latter network, given their current focus on comic book superheroes for young males. They do air a couple of female-centric series, so I suppose they're looking for a possible companion series.

    Well... just gotta wait and see... Oh gosh, what if Heather Locklear funded a miniseries focused entirely on Sammy Jo, starring Ava as the lead?

    I see Greg Berlanti (currently doing Arrow and Flash on The CW, used to do Brothers & Sisters and Dirty Sexy Money on ABC) is also developing a pilot for The CW and it's an immigration family drama called Casa.

    NuDynasty will have to battle that one as well as 7-8 other pilots for a spot on an already limited CW schedule. It's not exactly likely we'll ever get to see the new show.

    We really need the 'funny' button. Whatever happened to all the buttons?

    I bet she's a teen hooker on some kind of drugs in the ghetto who gets whisked off to Lala land by her Fairy godmother Aunty Cristal.

    It's so The O.C, I could vomit.

    But I know... I know, your lips are sealed. :p

    Yes but I meant the story. It would be odd to do the Dynasty story and then not name it Dynasty when it's obvious that they're doing a new version of Dynasty.
    :confused:

    I doubt this show if it gets made will follow the original DYNASTY stories. They were pretty shite after a while anyways. Imagine revisiting season 4. Or 7 or 8? They would have to air it on pay per view TV and aim it at sadomasochists.

    Maybe repeating the plots from season 1, 2 and 3ish could be fun but really it wasn't so gripping after that and it was convoluted enough that you could rip it off and nobody would be able to do you for plagiarism. Because they wouldn't know what you were doing anyway. lol

    I think the writers will loosely redo season 1 and then if it goes on they will just go their own direction.

    I think he's reptilian in all Dynasty related projects, and in all Dynastic realities, reboots, and re-imaginings. It's the way God wants it.

    I also wonder if they're going to skip certain storylines...maybe they're eager to introduce the Moldavians as soon as possible because it was such a big thing at that time.
    Fallon and Prince Michael?

    Stuff like that is probably likely. Though it may not work, if they go for a more realistic vibe. The Moldavians could never have been part of season 1 Dynasty. It's two alternate realities. TV shows now don't seem to survive such a transition.

    It might be too soon for any of that. They're probably still casting, coming up with scripts, finding places to film, etc.
