A television series on the iconic detective Nancy Drew is being developed at CBS.
“Grey’s Anatomy” alums Joan Rater and Tony Phelan will co-write and produce it alongside Dan Jinks, said The Hollywood Reporter.
The potential series is described as a contemporary take on the character from the iconic book series.
Now in her ’30s, Nancy is a detective for the NYPD where she investigates and solves crimes using her uncanny observational skills, all while navigating the complexities of life in a modern world.
Nancy Drew first appeared in books in 1930 and was originally created by Edward Stratemeyer. The character has evolved in the decades since, though the original series u2014 Nancy Drew Mystery Stories u2014 ran from 1930-2003.
Bonita Granville played Nancy in four Warner Bros films in the ’30s and, more recently, Scream Queens’ Emma Roberts played the famed sleuth in a 2007 movie from the same studio.
