Famous Five, Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys..oh what nostalgia creeps into the skin when you hear such names. To activate your nostalgia cells a little harder, CBS Studios is coming up with a show based on the famous sleuth Nancy Drew.

Written by Joan Rater and Tony Phelan, the show Drew will be portraying Nancy’s character in the contemporary era (female take on Sherlock?). Nancy would be seen as a 30-year old detective in the New York Police Department where she investigates and solves crimes using her uncanny observational skills along with showcasing her personal life. Oh, she did have many boys crushing on her in the books right?
