WHO DOESN’T HUM THIS THEME SONG…
With the fall season just around the corner, The CW Network has unveiled the artwork for the 2017 Fall launch of its new series DYNASTY and VALOR. The new art will appear in The CW’s national outdoor, print, and digital marketing this fall.
Dynasty Synopsis: Wealth, power, deception, and double-dealing… what does it take to build a dynasty? A modern re-imagining of the iconic primetime soap, centering on the powerful Carrington family as they defend their throne against the Colbys, new rivals and threats, and even each other.
Valor Synopsis: An elite unit of U.S. Army helicopter pilots called the Shadow Raiders is sent on a top secret mission to Somalia, a mission that goes terribly awry. Only two members of the team return safely: Warrant Officer Nora Madani (Christina Ochoa), one of the unit’s first female helicopter pilots, and her commanding officer, Captain Leland Gallo (Matt Barr), while the whereabouts of their comrade Jimmy Kam (W. Trè Davis) are unknown. Now back in the U.S., Madani and Gallo are the only ones who know the truth about what really went wrong in Somalia. Nora’s boyfriend, First Lieutenant Ian Porter (Charlie Barnett), suspects she’s not telling him the full story, and Jess Kam (Corbin Reid), Jimmy’s wife and Nora’s friend, is frustrated and furious at being kept in the dark. Meanwhile Thea (Melissa Roxburgh), the enigmatic CIA officer charged with investigating the failed mission, has her own suspicions about what occurred.
With Nora still recovering from a gunshot wound she suffered during the mission, the commander of the Shadow Raiders, Col. Robert Haskins (Nigel Thatch), grounds her from flying. But when it’s discovered that Jimmy is alive and being held captive by a group of ruthless terrorists, Nora is determined to join Gallo back in the cockpit to rescue their friend. As preparation and training intensify, Nora and Gallo grow closer, and soon find themselves torn between duty, honor and desire as they wonder who they can trust, and whether the secrets they’re hiding will help save Jimmy… or put them all in terrible danger.
The VALOR key art, with the tag line “Truth is the First Casualty of War”, features Officer Nora Madani (Christina Ochoa) and Captain Leland Gallo (Matt Barr). The DYNASTY art is comprised of two elements, both with the tag line “Vicious. Ambitious. Delicious”. One element features Blake Carrington (Grant Show) with his daughter Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies) and his new fiancée Cristal Flores (Nathalie Kelly). The second element features key pairings of characters embodying the words from the tag line:“Vicious” Fallon and Cristal, “Ambitious” Blake and Jeff Colby (Sam Adegoke); and “Delicious” Steven Carrington (James Mackay) and Sammy Jo (Rafael de la Fuente). The two DYNASTY elements will appear as part of an overall image campaign for the series launch.
