Writer-producer-director Joss Whedon is set to executive produce the half-hour comedy series “Pippa Smith: Grown Up Detective” for Freeform.
Siobhan Thompson and Rebecca Drysdale created the half-hour dark comedy that follows a twenty-something who played a former kid sleuth on television as she deals with relationships, addiction, and being too old for the detecting game.
Each episode, Pippa solves a new case while unravelling a bigger mystery and attempting to navigate a messy personal life. Whedon and Drysdale are serving as executive producers alongside Drew Buckley, Jillian Vogel, and Sam Reich.
The series will join Freeform’s current slate including “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger,” “Grown-ish,” “The Perfectionists” and “Siren”. The network recently cancelled fan-favorite series “Shadowhunters” after three seasons.
