CBS Says No To Nancy Drew Reboot

SarahShahiWord from THR.com is that CBS has decided to pass on the planed reboot of the Nancy Drew Mysteries. The series was set to star Sarah Shahi, formerly of Person of Interest, and focus on a more mature Nancy in her 30's and a member of the NYPD. Drew, the new title, would have the character using her keen observation skills to solve crimes while dealing with the life of an adult in New York City. It was set to co-star Anthony Edwards (E.R.) and Vanessa Ferlito (CSI: NY).

Word is that Drew was in a battle with another written and produced by Tony Phelan and Joan Rater called Doubt. The legal drama starring Katherine Heigl won out for the last drama slot on the network's schedule.
