Nancy Drew - Drama Being Redeveloped at NBC



More than a year after CBS passed on its Sarah Shahi-fronted Nancy Drew, NBC is teaming with Tony Phelan and Joan Rater to redevelop the drama.

The project, which is in development, has an entirely new logline at CBS despite hailing from the same producing team and studio (CBS Television Studios). Here's the new logline: "When the author of the most famous female teen detective series is thrust into a real-life murder mystery, who does she turn to for help? Her two best friends from childhood, who were the inspiration for all those books, and the women who have a real ax to grind about the way their supposed best friend chose to portray them all those years ago."

NBC's Nancy Drew will again be written by Phelan and Rater (Grey's Anatomy), who exec produce via their overall deal with CBS TV Studios. Dan Jinks returns to exec produce.

Should Nancy Drew move forward at NBC, it would feature a completely different cast. The CBS take co-starred Anthony Edwards, Vanessa Ferlito, Steve Kazee, Felix Solis, Rob McClure and Debra Monk.
