A contemporary take on “Nancy Drew” may be coming to television next season as CBS is in the stages of developing a series for it. The show, which is based on Carolyn Keene’s young adult books about a teenage sleuth, is going to do infuse a few changes for the TV program.
For starters, Nancy Drew in the series will be a 30-something investigator with the New York Police Department, “where she investigates and solves crimes using her uncanny observational skills, all while navigating the complexities of life in a modern world,” according to Entertainment Weekly. The treatment of the TV show will be a procedural, which is typically how most cop series air on CBS.
Joan Rater and Tony Phelan, who have worked on “Grey’s Anatomy” are going to co-write and co-executive produe “Nancy Drew.” The show will be part of a long list of revivals from the 80s that are coming to television, such as “MacGyver” and “Lethal Weapon.”
“Nancy Drew” is a popular book series that is set in the 1930s, along with “Hardy Boys.” The stories of Nancy Drew has already been adapted in movies and TV shows many times, with the most recent one being the film starring Emma Roberts.
