The original Nancy Drew is returning to her roots. Deadline reports Pamela Sue Martin will guest star on The CW’s upcoming Nancy Drew pilot.
The new series “centers on 18-year-old Nancy Drew (Kennedy McMann) and is set in the summer after her high school graduation. She 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.”
Martin originated the role of Nancy Drew on the ABC TV show The Hardy Boys Nancy Drew Mysteries, which ran from 1977 to 79.
On the The CW pilot, Martin will be playing ” 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.”
