The CW Releases the First Poster of the Nancy Drew TV Series Haoson May 8, 2019 Geeks, Shows In a move that we never really wanted/expected, but we’re getting a Nancy Drew TV Series courtesy of The CW, the television network that brought us The Flash, Arrow and Riverdale. Nancy Drew is the latest addition to the network’s list of upcoming teen oriented shows such as the Riverdale spin-off series, Katy keene and even the Batwoman coming from the Arrowverse (which has started filming it’s pilot last March as per Comicbook.com). For those unfamiliar to Nancy Drew, Nancy Drew is a teen detective in an American mystery series created by publisher Edward Statemeyer as the female counterpart of his Hardy Boys series. As the female sleuth she’s been put into situations Scooby-Doo style sans the comedic value. There were also adaptations on the small and silver screen where there was a Nancy Drew TV Series, and even the 2007 Nancy Drew film where Screen Queens star Emma Roberts played the titular character. From Comicbook.com Nancy Drew comes from Chuck and The OC co-creator Josh Schwartz and Runaways producer Stephanie Savage. Set in the summer after her high school graduation, 18-year-old Nancy Drew(Kennedy McMann) thought she’d be leaving her hometown for college, but when a family tragedy holds her back another year, she finds herself embroiled in a ghostly murder investigation — and along the way, uncovers secrets that run deeper than she ever imagined. McMann is apparently the daughter of New York Times bestselling author Lisa McMann. The pilot also stars She’s All That and Psych‘s Freddie Prinze Jr. as Nancy‘s father. ’70s Nancy, Pamela Sue Martin has been cast in the reboot as Harriet Grosset, a small-town psychic who offers her talents to help Nancy investigate a murder — and ends up delivering an otherworldly clue that neither of them bargained for.
