CBS Plans “Nancy Drew” TV Series Reboot

CBS is planning to bring iconic detective Nancy Drew back to television with both Joan Rater and Tony Phelan (“Grey’s Anatomy”) set to produce a small screen reboot of the title.

The new show would be a contemporary take on the character from the iconic book series. In this incarnation Drew is a thirtysomething detective for the NYPD who investigates and solves crimes using her uncanny observational skills.

The books, which were penned over seven decades by various writers, have already spawned a 1970s ABC series, several 1930s movies and a 2007 film in which Emma Roberts took on the role. Dan Jinks, Rater and Phelan will executive produce the new series.
