Grant Show likes to star in dramas. At least that’s what we think – based off the fact that he was a star on Melrose Place and Devious Maids and he’s now going to be on one of the most dramatic shows around.
The actor has been cast as Blake Carrington on Dynasty . He will be playing the billionaire, a role originated by John Forsythe in the original series. The CW is rebooting.
The show is co-written by Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage and Sallie Patrick.
If you aren’t familiar with the series, it tells the story of the Carrington’s and the Colby’s – two of America’s richest families. Drama, drama, drama. That’s the best way to put it. But with every reboot there is a little difference of story and so what is this one going to be about?
“Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies), daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington (Show), and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal (Nathalie Kelley), a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America’s most powerful class.” – according to Deadline.
Dynasty is one of 6 titles vying for a spot on The CW. We’re not sure if it will make it past the pilot, but we’re intrigued.
