The case of the Nancy Drew pilot has been re-opened. Deadline reports NBC is developing a new TV show based on the classic children’s books.
This is far from the first time the mystery books have been optioned as a TV series. Last year, CBS ordered a Nancy Drew pilot titled Drew, but the network ultimately passed on the project.
Now, the same team behind Drew have teamed up with NBC for a new take on the famous teen detective. From Tony Phelan and Joan Rater, the new series will follow “the author of the most famous female teen detective book series [as she] is thrust into a real-life murder mystery.”
CBS TV Studios will produce the pilot alongside Dan Jinks.
