But rather than focus on the angel-vs-bitch, first wife vs the new wife set-up pitting Krystle against Alexis (AKA Linda Evans and Joan Collins), this reboot will showcase daughter Fallon pitted against her father’s new love, this time a Latina named Cristal. Holy diversity!
That is not the only way the new series differs from the .
The new “Dynasty” is set in steamy Atlanta as opposed to snowy Denver.
The trailer also showed a lot of what we loved about the original — the huge mansion that seemed to go on for days, lots of sex, drinking, adultery, opulence, private planes, clothes (when clothes are actually worn), cat-fighting, bitchy dialog, threats, blackmail and … did we mention sex? And if this trailer is any indication, there are writers who grew up loving the original who will force the censors hands with as many double entendres as they can cram into an hour of television.
Executive producers named: Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, Sallie Patrick, Esther and Richard Shapiro (the creators of the original “Dynasty”) and Brad Silberling.
