(Lucy Hale stars as Katy Keene)

M-Net City (channel 115) will feature the first in the series Katy Keene on December 18 at 19h10.

This is a joyful, gripping series that follows aspiring designer Katy Keene and a group of artists trying to make their dreams come true in New York City. From the creators of Riverdale.

The American musical comedy-drama television series developed by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Michael Grassi is based on the Archie Comics character of the same name.

Katy designs clothes for anyone she can, including her friend and roommate Josie, whose singing talent catches the attention of Alexander Cabot, a CEO who hopes to reboot the record label division of his father's corporate empire. But Alexander's dream of signing Josie to a recording contract meets resistance from Cabot Media's powerful senior vice president Alexandra, who also happens to be his twin sister.

Josie and Katy's roommate, Jorge, works at his family's bodega and has his eye on Broadway, but after a series of rejections, he hopes to take his drag performance career as Ginger to the next level. The mysterious Pepper Smith plans to open her own version of Andy Warhol's Factory. She has the connections, but no-one seems to know where she got her money or if she really has any at all. As these aspiring artists take on the runway, the recording studio, Broadway and the New York social scene, they find more than just a career in the big city -- they find long-lasting friendship.

Lucy Hale heads the cast as Katy Keene. Also featured in the cast line-up are Ashleigh Murray, Julia Chan, Jonny Beauchamp and Kevin Keller.
